Are you looking for something a little different to what you normally find in the shops? Maybe just a little inspiration? Or maybe you’ve got a family member you just can’t find something for. There’s always one, right?

I’ve been looking at the Uncommon Goods Christmas gifts section and have picked out some of my favourites. Hopefully this list will give you some ideas of ‘uncommon’ gifts you can buy.
My 3 year old niece absolutely adores popcorn (just like her Auntie). Whenever she’s at my house and I snack on some skinny popcorn she’s by my side. Although she’s too young to use this herself, I know she would be SO excited to get her own popcorn maker for Christmas. Movies nights would be so much fun.
I have quite a few guitar players in my family. My husband, my father-in-law and my brother. Now I’m a sucker for a pair of novelty socks. I always get a pair from my bestie for Christmas. If you’re looking for a stocking filler for someone, then you can’t go wrong with some fun, novelty socks. You can take a look are more Christmas gifts for men here.
Got an avocado lover in the family? This product is brilliant! Seriously, I’ve never seen one of these before, but they are genius.
If you’ve followed my blog from the beginning, you’ll know I’ve dealt with a very fussy eater. In fact I’m now dealing with a second fussy eater. Yep, both my children are rubbish with food. It drives me mad! Things like this food face plate is perfect for Lamb. He loves making meal times fun and less focussed on eating and more on the food itself. For example sucking up spaghetti like Lady & The Tramp was how I got him to first try pasta. I know he would LOVE eating from this plate.
Nothing beats a hot cup of coffee, right? Wrong.
Nothing beats a hot cup of coffee in a UNICORN mug! Whether they like unicorns or not, whoever you buy a mug like would surely love it. I know I would!
I absolutely love family illustrations like this one. Especially if the artist really captures the look well. If you’re struggling with buying a couple something, why not buy a family gift instead and get them something like this family print? I know my other half and I would be so pleased with a gift like this.
Something like this might be a little pricey, but with everything being so digital these days, an instant camera might be the perfect gift for a loved one this Christmas. In fact, my other half suggested buying me one, and I’d LOVE it if he did! I’d have to make sure I have a scrapbook ready to stick them in so I don’t lose the photos.
If you know of a new mum who like quirky jewellery, then this would be perfect for her. Depending on how many children she has, you can but this gorgeous necklace with a mama bear, and baby bears attached. I just think this is such a lovely item and I’m sure any mother would really appreciate it.
Finally, I couldn’t resist including these cloud screen cleaners. As someone who NEVER uses the proper materials to clean her glasses or laptop, I’d be rather grateful to receive something like this. As it’s a grey cloud too it’s totally my taste and would look fab in my home office, if I ever get one.
So there are my top picks from the Uncommon Goods quirky Christmas gifts selection. I hope I’ve inspired you!
Be honest, how many Christmas gifts have you still got to buy?
