Holiday Gift Guide: UncommonGoods
The men in my life are the hardest to shop for. My Dad still works at 70 and does not have many interests and my husband gets himself what he wants so by the holidays, he is not full of good ideas. I have lists by now and even some gifts bought for those on my holiday list. As I was thinking of good gifts for these men, including my brothers I realize they all have one thing in common. They all love there beer and spirits. So, the likely source for unique gifts for the men is at UncommonGoods.
My husband has a glass of whiskey as a night cap a few nights a week and so do I. What he doesn’t have are whiskey stones and I saw more than one option for whiskey gifts at UncommonGoods. I settled on the Whiskey Stones and Gift Set. This is a complete set with 2 sipping glasses that are made in Slovenia and Czech republic. The stones are the design of artist, Andrew Hellman, a big fan of single malt scotch, who wanted to chill his spirits without diluting them. These are great because they come in a set of 9 and you only need 3 stones and 5 minutes to chill one glass of whiskey or spirit of choice.
My Dad loves geography and has some maps and decor so the City Map Glasses are perfect. There are 19 major US cities to choose from and Seattle was one of the choices making this a great gift for my entire family as that is where we live. The design is elegant and brilliant. The designer of these are artist, Brian Johnston of Boston. He takes city maps and curves them around the glass in an etched design. These are made and designed in the USA.
Our oldest son loves his beers and visits the local brewery with friends. I knew these 7 Deadly Sins Pilsner Glasses would be a hit. I can just imagine the conversation starter these glasses will bring. I showed my husband this gift for our son and he felt it was as clever as I did. Mort Gerberg is the award-winning cartoonist behind the design of these characters who all depict the 7 deadly sins. Also made in the USA, these glasses feel great to hold and are of great quality.
Now, these 3 options are just some suggestions of the hundreds of gifts you can find at UncommonGoods. More than half of their products are hand made and artists have access to create and design these unique gifts you will find. You will find gift ideas at great prices. I also found some great gift ideas for the stocking too.
