Gift Ideas for Any Occassion

My husband and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day but I do believe in stepping up your game once in a while to show the person you love how much they mean to them.

This gesture doesn’t have to fall on Valentine’s Day alone. We can always express our love to the special people in our lives on whatever day of the year, and one way to do this is by giving them thoughtful gifts. I am actually going to challenge myself to do this more often because since having a child, my husband and I’s daily lives now consist of endless routines. A thoughtful present here and there can definitely spice things up a bit.

I’ve partnered up with Uncommon Goods for this post to show you guys a few things that I got my husband and my daughter for Valentine’s Day. I love this online shop because like their name suggests, they provide a big variety of uncommon goods that surely make for great gifts! Gone are the days of buying boring mugs, socks, and clocks for our friends and families. Uncommon Goods has a lot of unique, fun, and quirky items that I’m sure you will love. I also included a little gift guide at the end of this post to give you guys inspiration on what to give your friends and family for any occasion. #UncommonGoods


Cocktail-Inspired Lip Balm Trio - When I saw this I knew I had to get it! I love that it’s a lip balm that has a fun yet mature twist that I know my husband Jorge will love! The lip balms are made with all natural ingredients that smell like yummy cocktails and keep your lips juicy at the same time.

A Is For Adeline Book - This book is probably one of my favorites that I got from Uncommon Goods because I was able to customize it for Adeline. It’s an alphabet book where each letter describes good characteristics of children: “A is for active and Adeline”. But since it’s customized for my baby, they have pages where Adeline is included like for example: there was a page where stars spelled out her name. I love little details like that.

What I Love About _____ by _____ - This book is so cute and awesome because it’s so tiny yet it can hold so much meaning once the pages are filled out. My husband and I didn’t fill this one out because I planned to give it to my friends. But we did kind of turned it into a little game where I asked him the prompts in the book. I loved discovering the things my husband loved about me. This would be a really great gift for valentine’s day and anniversaries.

Mariner Cheese Board - Finally, I got Jorge and I this cute cheese board because we love to snack, and this is something we can enjoy together as a couple. The board rotates so it’s great to use when having friends over, and it includes little knives strategically tucked away as the wheel. Super cute!
