UncommonGoods Unique Gifts {$50 Gift Card Giveaway}

Do you have people in your life who are hard to shop for? I do, so I’m so glad that sites like UncommonGoods exist. This site has so many unique gift ideas that it makes it easy to find the perfect gift for everyone. I recently received some products for men including a wrench bottle opener, stone drink chillers, and a scented candle.

The wrench bottle opener has been a great item to have in the kitchen. It was heavy in my hand and I could tell that it was made of high quality materials. I liked that it had a long handle and was easy to grip.

This “On The Rocks” set would make a wonderful gift. It’s a set of six solid granite drink chillers with two cups. They are easy to use. They just need to be put in the freezer for a couple hours and then can be used in place of ice cubes. These stones are great for keeping drinks like whiskey and other spirits cold because they don’t melt and water down the drinks. Once they are used they just get rinsed off and put back in the freezer for the next use.

The last item I tried out was their scented candles for men. Instead of vanilla and pumpkin, these candles have scents like “pizza”, “fresh cut grass” and “sawdust”. I only had a chance to smell the pizza one but I was not a fan of it. I thought the smell was overpowering even before it was lit.

Some of my favorite items on the site:

For Kids: Foreign Language Blocks

For The Kitchen: Mini Ice Cream Sandwich Presses

For Mom: Necklace
