Picking out gifts is hard.

Everyone has different tastes, and whether you’re picking out a birthday gift for your spouse or a promotion present for your colleague, choosing a unique and thoughtful gift can be difficult.

I used to go the route that most people go for gifts — I’d try to come up with an original idea that didn’t cost a fortune, and actually order it before their birthday. I put in a lot of effort to make that person feel special on their extra special day!

More often than not, I’d end up gifting a bottle of wine, candle, or another sweater… sound familiar?

Now, I have a perfected the method of choosing presents for parents, siblings, friends, and even pets!

All you have to do is visit to get started.

Now listen, I’m not an affiliate for Uncommon Goods (meaning I won’t get paid for promoting their website on this post), it’s just such a great website that I had to share it with everyone!

If you haven’t heard of Uncommon Goods, it’s a company that is similar to Amazon or Etsy — in that it provides a marketplace from many different sellers that are creating the latest and greatest goods that are cool, unique, and trending! Although it was founded in 1999, it’s only gained popularity in the last few years.

The best part of the website is how it’s divided. It’s split up in multiple ways such as: For Him, For Her, Bestsellers, For Friends, Anniversary, Housewarming, and more. This way, you aren’t left to the wolves to come up with your own ideas of what to search. The website guides visitors to the most unique and fresh items on the market.

Here are some of the items that I found when looking in the For Him section (I’ve always found that men are especially hard to shop for):
