UncomonGoods is my go-to for unique and uncommon gifts.
I’ve been a huge fan of theirs for more than 10 years – and the recipients of any gifts I buy through them are always delighted. All of the items they sell are handmade, and they are dedicated to featuring products that contain recycled components and have not sold products containing leather, feathers or fur. Besides being a founding member of B Corporation (click to see how cool this organization is!), UncommonGoods even lets you choose a nonprofit at checkout for them to donate $1 to with every order. They have a great selection of personalized gifts as well (see here) or gifts for all of those baby showers you’ll be attending this season (here). And who wouldn’t be thrilled to receive any one of these keepsakes for celebrating a milestone or anniversary?

If you haven’t checked them out yet, definitely do so – and get all your eco-conscious, socially-responsible gift-shopping done in one place.
As of late, I’ve been noticing more and more fashionable items that are customizable to the wearer’s liking. Though there’s always been Etsy for a one-on-one conversation with an individual seller (“Hey, can you make me one in this color and with a pocket?”), there are now more companies than ever offering options for their customers (beyond just sizing). And some of those items are also on the luxury-end of the scale: clothing or accessories you can customize to the tune of a couple hundred dollars or more. (That Fendi DIY NeedlePoint Baguette ($995) or Fendi Paint-Your-Own Baguette ($585) from last year spring to mind…;-)
Here’s a couple more I’ve noticed lately:
Sneaker Customization Kit
Paint your sneakers any way you want and add a dose of artistic boldness to your feet. Includes sneaker wipes (to clean them of dirt or oils prior to painting), 5 paints specifically formulated for sneaker leather and to withstand flexing, a paintbrush and an extra pot for mixing colors. (Sneakers not included;-) And of course you’re not limited to jazzing up those high-top basketball sneaks either…or even limited to sneakers! (Say you have a white leather bag you’d like to add some custom art to? No problem!)
Prada Choose-Your Initials Sunglasses
You can choose your own 2 initials – or even your favorite symbols (like hearts or skulls) – to add a little bit of personalization to the arms of your Prada sunglasses.
From Owen & Savary, cuffs in their Bespoke line allow you to choose your favorite leathers and colors for a unisex piece all your own.
