Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t help but feel like the world is my oyster every time I sit down with a well curated catalog. Ever since I was a child, I have spent many a night with my feet tucked under me on the couch, circling item after item in catalog after catalog. Before bookmarks and online wishlists, there were folded down pages and highlighters. I could tell you this obsession passed as I grew older, but I would be lying. And I like you too much to lie to you. In fact, I have a stack of catalogs sitting next to me right this very moment, begging for attention. On the top of the pile is my absolute favorite: Uncommon Goods. What better way to kick off our February theme of “We Heart It” than to bring you the cream of the crop?
To say that I’m over the moon to showcase Uncommon Goods for our January finale is an understatement. They help me accomplish the often unattainable status of “best gift-giver EVER” on many an occasion. From fun gifts for guys to creative gift ideas for women, there is something for everyone. And we’re not talking your run of the mill can opener and/or keychain (not that there’s anything wrong with can openers or keychains.) Rather, we’re talking one of a kind, unique gifts (Catapult Kit!) that make your heart swell with pride and you will find yourself high-fiving strangers for no apparent reason. That is what pure happiness does to you, my friends.
