I think I have ordered from uncommongoods.com since its inception in 1999. It is my go-to site when I am at a loss for what to buy someone. Believe it or not, it happens. I am never at a loss for stuff to buy myself, but always struggle with gift ideas.

Love this corkcicle for $22.95. You just freeze it, and then you can keep it in your wine bottle during a get-together, or as long as the bottle lasts. Depending on my company, sometimes this would not be necessary.

This unzipped glass zipper bag is great for jellybeans, or lifesavers, or anything you would use a candy dish for. Cute on an office desk. Such a conversation piece, at $20.

Years ago, I had a friend who was going through some issues, and sort of at a crossroad. I purchased this necklace for her to remind her that her future was in her hands.

So much more fascinating to watch than an hourglass, this deep-sea sand art would make a great gift for anyone.

I hope this gives you some ideas of what uncommongoods.com has to offer.
