valentine’s day gifts for him | uncommongoods

This is a sponsored post; however, I only recommend products or services I believe will interest my readers. My husband gets a kick out of unique gifts and anything revolving around travel, so I’m constantly on the prowl for fun products to make holidays and birthdays more special. Since I’ve already highlighted UncommonGoods in my Christmas gift guides for women and men, it makes sense that I’d include some super awesome Valentine’s Day stuff for your dude. Plus, UncommonGoods has this handy “gifts for boyfriend collection” that makes shopping a breeze, so I guess I don’t really have to prowl for gifts this year… ‘Cause that just sounds weird. If you’re not familiar with UncommonGoods, I’m here to help. UncommonGoods is a privately-owned retailer that strives to feature unique designs and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment and without harm to animals or people. They recycle, upcycle, and impact […]

gift guide | for your dog

Hi, I’m Rachel and I’m completely smitten with my dogs. So much so that I’m going to hand it over to Malcolm and Ollie for this gift guide. They’ve compiled a list of some of their favorite toys, treats, and accessories for the furry friend in your life. Malcolm’s Picks: 1. BarkBox Subscription – My parents gifted us a BarkBox subscription and even though Ollie hogs all of the toys and treats,  I still look forward to it every month. Follow this link to receive $10 off your first month. I promise your pups will love it! 2. Organic Plush Toys – Mum has been on this organic kick lately, but that’s fine by me because I get new toys. And yes, I’m allowed to say “mum” because I’m originally from Scotland. 3. Bocce’s Truffle Mac & Cheese Biscuits – You could say these treats are addictive. 4. Orbee-Tuff Raspberry […]

gift guide | for her

This gift guide was easy to create because I just picked all of the things I love. :) And of course I included a Polaroid camera once again because I’m that obsessed. I hope you enjoy this gift guide for her! 1. Wine Pearls – Chill that vino without having to haul a bucket of ice around. 2. Geo Fan Necklace – I’ve been trying to spruce up my wardrobe by adding jewelry to outfits and this necklace is awesome! 3. Leather Travel Wallet – The color is gorgeous and it has room for a passport, plane ticket, and more. 4. Midi Band Trio – I need midi rings and I need them now. These are perfect! 5. Pandora Black Leather Bracelet – Edgier than the silver bracelets they offer. 6. Grey Embroidered Desert Wedges – TOMS wedges are my favorite! These would look great with jeans or leggings. 7. […]

gift guide | for him

Finding unique gifts for my husband can be a challenge because he never gives me any ideas (thanks, Brandon… smooch). Plus, when he really wants something– like a drone that flies around while recording HD videos– he’ll get it for himself. Boys will be boys. That’s why I find myself thinking about the perfect gift for months and months, but still scrambling at the last minute. This gift guide for him contains some of my absolute favorite items this season. Use them as stocking stuffers or as a main gift. I promise he’ll love everything! 1. Maca Root Razor Relief – Because your guy deserves nice products, too. 2. Whiskey Stones – Chill whiskey without diluting it. 3. Beard Pack – Keep his beard neat with this care set. 4. Molton Brown Sartorial Shaving Collection – Expensive for shaving gear, but top-notch and super sleek. 5. Men’s Bean Boots by L.L.Bean – Keep his toes warm […]

gift guide | the traveler

I’ve put together a list of my favorite travel products for that jet setter in your life. This gift guide for “the traveler” includes gadgets, journals, and essentials to make flights and road trips more enjoyable. I have the scratch-off map below and absolutely love taking a coin to different places after we’ve returned home, and one of the products on my wish list is the Fujifilm instant film camera. If I had this little gem, you’d bet I’d past photos all over our walls! It’s similar to that old Polaroid camera I had as a young kid, only a million times better! Let me know what your favorite item is: 1. USA Map Phone Case – Because everyone needs a travel map phone case in their life. 2. Beats Headphones – To make your flight more enjoyable. 3. Travel Stub Diary – Showcase plane and train ticket stubs, plus tokens from your […]

All I want for Christmas is a forever home. OK, not really. But sometimes moving around every six months gets to me and I just want to settle down and decorate something.

But hey, for all of you wonderful people who can by awesome goods for the home, here’s a gift guide. I’ve been stalking Urbanara lately and am in love with their blankets, pillows, and kitchen items. And that coaster set? How cool. 1. Dahra Coaster Set 2. Kaunas Cushion 3. Sydals Vase 4. Salle Grey 100% wool Blanket 5. Onuma Bowl 6. Champagne Travel Candle 7. Vence Pestle and Mortar I’m drawn to wood, natural fabrics, and anything neutral with pops of color, so this is exactly how […]
