Friday Favorite Finds

This post is sponsored by Uncommon Goods and written by me.  I absolutely love Uncommon Goods and have shopped their site and catalog for a long time.  All opinions are mine alone.

Call me crazy, but I love to get started early on Christmas shopping.  To me, any time after the beginning of fall is perfectly acceptable to start stowing away presents for my friends and family.  It's so nice to have it all done early, so I can enjoy wrapping all the presents in December!

Uncommon Goods is one of my first stops when I'm shopping for presents.  In fact, I got Wills' anniversary present there earlier this year.  The 10-year wedding anniversary present is aluminum, and I found a cool aluminum water bottle that has a compass on top.  It's perfect for when we go camping.

Today, I have a round up of some of my favorite finds!
Uncommon Goods Favorite Finds

Tea Drop Sampler

If you have a tea lover in your life, they need this!  These morsels are compact tea, sugar, and spices. When dropped into hot water, they dissolve into the perfect tea blend.

Compact Swivel Cheese Board

There's nothing more delicious than a cheese board, right?  It's the easiest appetizer to put together for dinner and ... to be honest, I could probably just eat cheese as a meal.  This swivel cheeseboard is gorgeous and perfect for someone who has limited storage space.

Butterfly Puddler

I look forward to having a garden again but for now, I will pine after this butterfly puddler.  The idea behind it is that you place some water and salt in the well. When the water evaporates, butterflies are able to find the minerals left behind.

Chakra Bath Salts

If you have a luxury-lover in your life, these would be perfect.  Each tube of bath salts are a different aroma.  The scents are refreshing and they also contain shea butter, which will moisturize your skin.

Travel Stub Diary

This travel diary is so unique.  For the traveler in your life, this would be a memorable book for them to store memories from their travels.  It would be so much fun to fill this up with keepsakes.

Toaster Grilled Cheese Bags

This has to be the neatest kitchen gadget I've ever seen. Basically, you use these bags to make a grilled cheese sandwich in a toaster.  Now, I love to a grill sandwich as much as anyone else, but I can appreciate something that makes ''soup and sandwich" night even easier.

Have you started shopping for Christmas gifts?  Let me know if you've found anything awesome!


  1. We need the cheese platter and tea lover finds for our tenth anniversary!

  2. These are awesome ideas thank you;)

  3. Huh, I've never heard of a butterfly puddler before, but that sounds interesting! I've got a few butterfly bushes in my backyard that already attract butterflies; my yard can be like a butterfly oasis!

  4. I think I would have to get the sandwich maker.

  5. I love Uncommon Goods!! I definitely need to try that tea sampler.

  6. These are fun picks. I always forget about uncommon goods. Thanks for reminding me!
