Uncommon Goods is one of my favorite sites. I always try to make a point every Christmas to get everyone a unique gift. This site has loads of items and ideas. Who wants to be “common” anyway?
Blue Ribbon General Store is a recent find. I love Real Simple magazine and they had featured an item from this site. The store is based out of Brooklyn, New York. Again, very much like Uncommon Goods but they did have some unique items as well.
One of my new favorite online stores is Joseph Joseph. This store is strictly geared toward the kitchen. Everything from here is brightly colored. They also offer a lot of really great space-saving items which is a big plus for my non-existent counter space.
Alright, yet again, a site featuring kitchen items. William Bounds Ltd. has already inspired me with a couple of gift ideas for some people this Christmas. Namely, Pat’s brother who is terribly difficult to buy for. A lot of their items focus around mills and grinders for spices and salt (salt considered a spice?).
If you can dream it Vat19 probably has it. From soap made from beer to a tripod that screws on the top of a water bottle so you can take pictures. Just head over to this site and be prepared to spend some time going “who thinks of this stuff?”
An outlets store online dealing with kitchen items. Have you noticed I am a bit obsessed with kitchen gadgets. Check out the Kitchen Outlet. I love that they have items for tea lovers since my mother in law is one. Makes finding her gifts a tad easier.
Oh my. I was in awe when I found this site. Ever since finding out about PCSing to Europe I have been obsessed with bicycles. Adeline Adeline bicycles (you can’t even say “bikes” when talking about this company) are all handmade. They have all the accessories for bicycles from baskets to bells.
Izola is pretty much and Anthropologie store for you bathroom. They have some really cute shower curtains and other little knick knack items for the bathroom.
Not on the High Street is a UK based company who boasts some awesome gifts! I have fallen in love with their personalized prints (which make great wedding gifts).
If you enjoy couponing or like getting free stuff here is a list of sites that I check on a regular basis. Just a little tip, if you are signing up for free stuff set up a “dummy” email account so all the junk mail goes there instead.
