I’ve surprised myself this year and I’ve already bought a few Christmas presents for my parents. However I’m not finished, because of this I was open for ideas and inspiration.
So can you imagine how happy I was when UncommonGoods contacted me to collaborate on a post? I love that UncommonGoods have their own definition of ‘sustainability’ and are always striving to incorporate it in the decisions they make. They also haven’t sold products containing leather, fur or feathers.
Amongst the presents I’ve got for my Mum it ranges from skincare, clothing, jewellery (and the odd towel set).
I was in need of something different and found this to be just what I was looking for. Its a Mother & Daughter Letter book set, where there’s 40 cards you can ‘send, share and treasure’. I love the idea of this, both my Mum and I are super sentimental people. When I was younger, I used to always write letters to my Mum and now we both write notes to each other before we leave the house and know we won’t see each other much because of work and College.
I find my Dad the hardest to buy for, maybe because he doesn’t give me a long list like my Mum does (THANKS MUM). So he usually gets the same; pyjamas, a watch and toiletries like shampoo.
But I always try to get him a humorous gift, so when I came across this I knew I had to include it in this post. My Dad is obsessed with my dog and for work he’s always wearing a tie. Could I get a better gift? Probably not, especially since you can choose which dog you want on the tie. I was surprised at the plethora and variations of gifts UncommonGoods has to offer for men in general.
Is this bad I’m including myself in all of this? Obviously, I don’t buy myself Christmas presents, I just decide to treat myself all year round (oops). I just thought I’d highlight how easy it is to buy for someone like me; books; perfume; makeup and you’re sorted.
There were sooo many temptations when I was scrolling through UncommonGoods and this was just one of them; a Scratch Map. I’ve definitely had my eye on one of these for a few years now. I just find them such a good idea and a great gift.
Overall, I’m pleased with the amount of Christmas gifts I’ve got for my parents already. I’ll be sure to do a full gift guide when I’ve finished my Christmas Shopping. And I’m grateful there’s so many websites, that I can take inspiration from.
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?
