Unique Gifts {For The Men}

Tis the holiday season and with the holiday season comes a plethora of Christmas wishlist posts. Right now there are tons of gift guides featuring department store favorites. This year I'm focusing on more unique gifts. Things you wouldn't find shopping at a department store.

Uncommon Goods has a huge selection of Christmas gifts to choose from in all price ranges and styles. The unique thing about Uncommon Goods is their mission of sustainability. Their products are handcrafted and often feature organic or recycled products. They work with artists and local manufactures to produce items in a economically and environmentally conscious manner. When you purchase gifts you are able to choose an organization at checkout to which Uncommon Goods will give $1. 

The one person I have the hardest time buying for is my husband. He is quite simple but in the best way. He wants something, he saves up and buys it. When approached by Uncommon Goods about working together I knew right away that their gifts would be perfect. 

You can browse their entire Christmas gift guide here: 

I thought I would round up a few of my favorites if you also know of a guy who is impossible to shop for.  For the beer lover, any of these gifts would be perfect! My favorite is this set to chill your beer and keep it cold.Always have the same movie and dinner date night? Here is a way to spice things up! For the clean shaven guy this sharpener is ingenious!These or this DIY are perfect for the musically talented guitar guy.

Uncommon Goods is not all about the guys. You can find gifts for just about anyone on you list and even snag a few things for yourself! Happy Shopping!

Caroline | Nine Months

Nine months. I have officially been holding you in our arms just as long as I carried you in my belly. You grow so much each day. I wish time would slow down just a bit. Please stay my baby forever.

Here are a few little things about you from your ninth month:

Nicknames: Little Bit, Sweet Girl

Height & Weight: As of your 9 month doctor appointment, you weigh 17 pounds 12 oz and are 27 inches long. 

Looks: Loving those chipmunk cheeks and sweet curly hair

Personality: You love to laugh and share joy with others. Your favorite game is copy cat and chasing after Charlie's toys. 

Eating: You are such a good eater. You suck down 4-5 5oz bottles of formula. You enjoy a variety of fruits and vegetables including sweet potatoes, pumpkin, carrots and apples. You love yogurt and eggs but are quite unsure about meat. 

Sleeping:  The time change was a bit rough for all of us but by the end of the month you are back sleeping from 6pm- 5ish. No more dream feeds and very few early morning wakings.  You typically nap twice a day for 2 hours. 

Wearing:  Size 3 diapers. Your 9 month clothing fits perfectly now. 

Favorite Things: You love rubbing your fingers across different textures. It's quite like nails on a chalkboard and I wince every time but you love it so much.  You love banging things together and copying other's actions. 

Least Favorite Things: You are quite unsure of new people these days. 

Big things happening this month: 
You got FOUR teeth all in one month!!
You have figured out how to move and can army crawl toward things you want.
