Unique Gifts for Him from Uncommon Goods

Thanks to my friends at Uncommon Goods for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own. 

So far my promise to do all of my Christmas shopping online is going strong! I do have an excess number of shipping boxes and packing paper but it's totally worth it.

I still have a few people on my list - the guys seem to be the hardest to shop for. The hunt is on for something cool for those guys. Uncommon Goods is my go-to for such gifts.

I LOVE that on every item you can see the story behind the item - where it was made and who made it. Uncommon Goods offers some of the coolest handmade, recycled and organic products often made from sustainable materials.

Uncommon Goods makes it easy to shop - they have a whole section for Christmas Gifts for Men, general Christmas Gifts and Christmas Gifts for Dad.

This Pistachio Pedestal is genius. Now the discarded shells have a home. My dad would love this.

Ultimate List of Binge Worthy TV Shows

Jacob and I just realized we don't have a binge worthy show to watch at the moment. I know, first world problems. I never want that to happen to you so I've put together a list of binge worthy shows. Plus, with the winter approaching this is the perfect time to stay in where it's warm and cozy.

While Jacob and I don't have a show to watch together, I'm currently watching Gilmore Girls and loving every moment of it. I thought I watched this show growing up but it's been so long it's all new again. I can't stop watching. My other most favorite is Hart of Dixie and it's pretty much my first recommendation to anyone. It's just so sweet.

All of these are currently on Netflix. Most shows are off air now, but a handful are still running. Start your binge watching now!

Caramel Apples and Other Perfect Gifts

I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week and Christmas is right around the corner. Where does the time go?! I already proclaimed (to Jacob after leaving a store with a checkout line of 60 people) that I will do all of our Christmas shopping online. No exceptions.

I love shopping online. Not only can you do it from the comfort of your own home, but you can truly find a unique gift for everyone on your list.

Partnering with Dean & DeLuca came at the perfect time. Have you visited their website lately? They have the most amazing gourmet goodies. It's a foodie dream come true! I'm drooling over the chicken pot pie, mac and cheese, fancy cheeses, all the candy and the drink mixes.  Heck - you could even order your ENTIRE Thanksgiving dinner today from Dean & DeLuca and have it delivered tomorrow. Your secret is safe with me.

I admit. I got sidetracked while Christmas shopping and totally ordered this fun Caramel Apple Kit from Fat Toad Farm. I mean, Cinnamon Caramel. Come on.

Caramel Apples and Other Perfect Gifts

This Caramel Apple Kit would make the perfect hostess gift for the loved one hosting Thanksgiving. You could even put in a little gift basket with apples. I like the idea of getting something out of the ordinary for a friend or family member. We all have so much "stuff", why not buy something that can be enjoyed with your friends and family!

The kit was really easy to use. It came with the caramel, apple sticks and instructions. After thickening the caramel on the stove top I dipped the apples, added a few crushed peanuts and I was done!
