Uncommon Goods {Giveaway} – CLOSED

I remember my mom telling me when I was in high school that it was incredibly difficult to find gifts for me, which surprised me!  I’ve always looked forward to all holidays and special occasions and haven’t ever been disappointed in gifts that I had received.  Thinking more about it, though, I don’t think that it’s because I have incredibly high expectations for gifts or because there’s just one gift that I have to have — rather, I’m pretty practical when I purchase items and I’m not very sentimental.  I suppose that that combination had made it difficult to find something that I would appreciate or would even keep for very long.

I realize now that one of the reasons that I had never really thought about it before was because my mom has always been such a good gift-giver!   She does the most amazing job of putting together fun, small packages to send to my boys every holiday, and she’s the aunt/sister/cousin/visiting teacher who not only remembers your birthday but also has a card and thoughtful gift in your mailbox or on your doorstep just in time for your special day.  I, unfortunately, did not inherit that innate ability to show my love and appreciation through thoughtful gifts, so it has taken me a little longer to learn the ropes.

On Mother’s Day this year, I woke up to find the sweetest letters written to me by my husband and my two boys, and they did such a great job of showering me with their love that I knew I wanted to make Father’s Day just as special for my husband and father/father-in-law.  If you’re like me and need a little extra help in the gift-giving department, then I would highly recommend starting your search at Uncommon Goods!

Uncommon Goods features a variety of items for gifting for all ages, all price ranges, and all reasons!  You can search through their large inventory by category, but my favorite search link is the “Occasions” tab that will open up a number of choices ranging from more common gift-giving ones (birthday, baby shower, anniversary) to ones that my mom thinks of ahead of time and I don’t think about until after the fact when it’s too late (graduation and housewarming).

And then, if you still need more help finding that perfect gift, each of the Occasions is split further into more specific categories!  Since Father’s Day is on my mind, I spent most of my time there — they split it further into Gifts for Dad, Gifts for Grandfather, and Gifts for New Dad.  Here are some of my favorites from their Father’s Day gift selection:
