When it comes to material things, my husband is about as low maintenance as a person can be. He basically needs food to eat, clothes to wear, and a couple of cold beers in the refridgerator…and he’s a happy guy. You’d think this would make him easy to shop for, but it actually ends up being quite the opposite. It’s not that he has everything…it’s that he needs nothing.
However, he’s kind of a geek at heart and gets a kick out of anything unusual or innovative. That’s where the site Uncommon Goods has come in handy this holiday season. If I can find him something unique and quirky–or something that solves an everyday problem…it’s a guaranteed hit! Uncommon Goods carries a ton of these kinds of gifts for guys, but I’ve highlighted some of the ones that I know my “Mr. I don’t need anything” would totally love!
Beer Cap Map USA – With this handmade map, beer connisuiers can keep track of (and show off) their favorite brews from each state. By the way, half of the gifts carried by Uncommon Goods are handmade–including this one!
Six-Pack Cooler Tote – Sometimes you just don’t need a full-blown cooler…am I right?! This neoprene tote would be perfect to take along to a get-together with friends or neighbors.
Whiskey Wedge – Chill your drink without diluting it…and look cool doing it! My husband would be all about this glass.
45 Second Omelet Maker – Maybe he’ll think this is so cool that he’ll want to bring me omelettes in bed every morning 😉
Driftwood iPhone Docking Station – This would really make his nightstand look manly. And I love the fact that they’re made of real driftwood from the beaches of Maine!
Easy Flip Kabob Set – Grilling kabobs used to be a pain–but not anymore! This thing is genius!
Necktie Travel Roll – For the traveling businessmen…this will help avoid tie creases!
Fishing Pole Campfire Rod – Again–so SO smart!!! Who wouldn’t want to roast hotdogs or marshmallows this way?!?
Pizza Cutter & Server – My husband has always made fun of me for cutting pizza with scissors (which I still don’t think is weird, for the record!)…but I have to agree, this is way better.
Now don’t go thinking they only have things for the guys…there are plenty of wonderfully unique gifts for women–and gifts for anyone in general! So go ahead and browse. I dare you to find something you don’t love! 😉
