On the 10th day of Blogmas, my blog post’s going to be….
About the places you can go online to do some or all of your Christmas shopping! Money aside, I love buying gifts for people. I love looking around and seeing all the unique gifts there are! With that said, where can you go to find unique and interesting gifts for your loved ones? Here’s a few places I’d recommend!
Yeah I know, it’s obvious Amazon is going to be on this list. However, have you ever checked out Amazon’s Interesting Finds section (With that black “Take a Look” Button)?! If you have no idea what to get a friend or family member, you may find something interesting in this little corner of their website!
I love that it looks like a mood board and a bit like Pinterest, where there are different sized squares with different random product like jewelry, stuffed animals, apparel, and little unique pieces of furniture and home decor!
You probably saw this one coming too. Besides Amazon, I think my friends and family frequent this site for unique and/or handcrafted gifts. I get so lost on this site because there are so many cool things to buy! I often tend to get lost in the more expensive stuff too… wonder why!! I also find myself sometimes wishing I could do what these insanely talented artisans have done 🙈
Uncommon Goods is another really cool website that you need to check out if you haven’t, already! Uncommon Goods is like Etsy, where it supports many independent artists and small businesses, offering you a variety of interesting goods! I seriously love it. There were some things I put on my wish list from Uncommon Goods … all expensive stuff, of course.
Last but not least, The Grommet. This is another site just like Etsy and Uncommon Goods where they support local makers and small businesses, but I feel like it’s their more mature-looking sibling. They actually offer a membership in which you pay $49 a year and you get free shipping without minimum + 10% discount on everything. However looking at the fine print, it states the free shipping offer only applies to “all products that travel by regular ground shipping in the 48 contiguous states”. Sorry, everyone else…
ANYWAY, you’ve only got to worry about that if you want to be a member! I think it’s neat how the details are neatly and clearly laid out with every item you look at, so there’s no question as to what it’s made of or what its dimensions are. A cool thing they’ve got is their “Surprise Me!” button. If you are overwhelmed with all of the categories, just hit that button to see something random.
Happy shopping!! 🙂
