father’s day gift ideas + a giveaway

Updated: Congratulations to Emily, who said:

And a very special thanks to Uncommon Goods for their generous giveaway! Have a happy Father’s Day Weekend, everyone!


Hello to our favorite people!

As you all probably well know, Father’s Day is lurking just around the corner. I say lurking, because between my own Dad and Jamin, they’re easily two of the hardest people to shop for. Why? Because when I ask what they want they’ve a. already purchased it for themselves or b. request über exciting articles like dress socks.

It’s basically like trying to shop for the person who purchases what they really want. Hurray for the non-element of unique surprises. Hurray for dress socks.

Enter: Uncommon Goods. Just as their title suggests, this spiffy company provides some fabulous gift ideas, whether it’s house warming gifts (here), gifts for grads (here) of a gift for dad (here) you can  for all kind of eye candy at Uncommon Goods. They have that one of a kind find for that special person.
