A few days ago I wondered if my timing for this month’s gift guide post is a bit poor considering Valentine’s Day just came and went, but then I realized that there are still a million other birthdays and events happening all the time for the people we love. If you’re on the lookout for the perfect gift for someone specific in the near future, I hope this round-up from UncommonGoods.com (<—-such a fun website!) helps you put a check mark in that “buy a gift for _____” box. 🙂
Here are 20 fun gift ideas that can each by scooped up for less than $50.
Scratch Map Deluxe | Scratch-Off Wall Maps: My sister gifted my brother-in-law something similar to this a couple of Christmases ago, and it was really fun to watch him sit at the kitchen table and scratch off all of the countries he’s visited. ($32)
Bluetooth Tracking Tag: If your loved one is notorious for losing his/her keys or another item, this would be a hilarious but super functional gift. ($40)
F Bomb Paperweight: Ha! For your co-worker or friend who’s known for having a potty mouth. ($45)
Kid Quotes Memory Book: Ah, we need this for Hadley. We are laughing our heads off constantly at what comes out of her three-year-old mouth. ($30)
You Are Beautiful Earring Bowl: Love this way of displaying and organizing earrings. So pretty. ($48)
Japan Inspired Travel Laundry Bag: So clever. I can see anyone who travels frequently loving this. ($10)
Caterpillar Bud Vase: What a gorgeous conversation piece for a coffee table or dining table. Love this! Add some store-bought flowers, and this would be a great alternative to having flowers delivered. ($20 or $38)
Play and Go Storage Mat: A thoughtful, funny gift for a parent who you know is overwhelmed by toy clutter! ($38)
Color Wheel Pendant: For your favorite artist. ($34)
The Holiday Journey: I’ve talked before about how much I adore our family Christmas journal that we fill out each year. This one is even better because it includes Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and general celebrations. Such a great price too! ($20)
Customizable What Big Sister Does Best Book: This would be a sweet gift to give a kid who has a sibling on the way. It’s written by the same author who wrote one of our personal favorite children’s books If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. ($35)

A few things I learned about UncommonGoods while working with them that I truly love:
- They believe in treating all people with dignity and respect, offering health insurance benefits to all full-time and most part-time employees, as well as fair wages for all.
- They created the Better to Give Program in 2001, which allows you to select a non-profit organization to receive a $1 donation from us at checkout. UncommonGoods has donated over $1,000,000 since they created this program.
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to three little girls (ages 7, 4, and 1) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
