Uncommon Goods: Christmas Gift Ideas & a GIVEAWAY!

Who is in the midst of Christmas shopping? I am always on the hunt for unique gift items especially during the holidays and love sharing a few of my favorite things with you every year. Since I always have at least one of the three kids with me it makes shopping in person very difficult. Thankfully I have a nice cozy office to do my online shopping.

When the folks at Uncommon Goods (a Brooklyn-based online retailer of unique gifts and creative designs) offered to send me a couple products from their kitchen/cooking section I immediately fell in love. It was my first time visiting their online store and I was impressed by the unique and high quality things they sell…and we’re not just talking kitchen items; they have things for the home/garden, office, for kids and babies, jewelry, etc. I obsessed over everything for weeks making lists of possible gift options (and of course adding things to my own list). I know the women in my life will love this site: make sure to check out gifts for women here.

Speaking of gifts for women, how cool are these birth month flower necklaces? I want. By the way, my birthday is next week if anyone is looking to buy me something. He he.

Back to the kitchen though, after much deliberation I finally decided I had to have this fabulous soup and sandwich tray and adorable bread warmer. People who know me know that I am a bit crazy about collecting dish/kitchenware and I don’t have anything similar to these things. Plus the soup/sandwich tray had over 1,000 positive reviews!

I couldn’t resist to make the perfect Tomato soup & grilled cheese combo.

The soup bowl is a very good size and the sandwich tray holds a large sandwich. It’s a very sturdy tray too which I like. Plus you don’t have to just use it for soups and sandwiches. I love the other ideas shown on their website of what you could use it for- cake & ice cream, soup and salad, muffin and fruit, etc.. You get 2 trays/bowls per order. LOVE this item!

I also had them send me this cute ceramic bread warmer. The reason why this really stood out to me is because we often have taco night and I have a hard time assembling everyone’s tacos while trying to keep dinner warm. I thought I could use this cute warmer under the tortillas and leave them on the table while I get all the fillings organized. I will also use it for our bread basket especially when we have company over or during holiday dinners. Such a great idea!

And they have something for everyone! To see the great selection of gifts for men go to this page: http://www.uncommongoods.com/holiday/christmas/christmas-gifts-for-men.

Before you go though, one lucky reader will win these two gifts from Uncommon Goods- the soup and sandwich trays (2) and the ceramic bread warmer. Wouldn’t these make perfect Christmas gifts?

    I love that store! I have had my eye on the soup and sandwich tray for a while now. Grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup are my favorite things to eat when I am sick or just having a crappy day.

    Hi, never heard of uncommon goods, but I can think of someone to give each of these gifts to. I will have to check out this website.

    The soup tray is so cute! And I absolutely love the idea of a bread warmer. It would be perfect for the holidays when I’m rushing around worrying if everything will be both ready and still warm. I wasn’t familiar with Uncommon Goods but I think I’ll have to check them out.
