When we’re on the hunt for quirky gifts, Uncommon Goods is our first destination. We especially love their home and dining picks (like this set of exotic cooking salts from around the world), and they make it easy to search for gifts under $50.
Topshop has certainly made a splash on American shores, but another favorite British retailer of ours is ASOS, which has a vast selection of stylish fashions for men and women at all price points.
Got tons of photos from a recent vacation or celebration? Turn them into a coffee table-worthy book using Blurb. Small books start at just $11!
Love the idea of Etsy, but don’t have the time to sift through thousands of vendors? Check out Poppytalk Handmade, which curates a new batch of handcrafted items from emerging designers each month. We’re fans of the creative maps from ImagineNation, and this tasseled bracelet by Vivien Frank Designs.
10. Candle Delirium
Luxe candles perfectly describe one of our gift-giving philosophies: Pick up something that the person would appreciate–but wouldn’t necessarily buy for herself. Candle Delirium has a bevy of brightly colored options, including scents from design guru Jonathan Adler.
11. C. Wonder
Bright colors and animal prints abound at this playful, preppy website, which sells home goods, clothing, jewelry and accessories. This monogrammed mug is a great office gift, so people don’t steal your colleague’s cup!
