this year i’m *trying* to make more of an effort to buy thoughtful, personalized gifts. the challenge is, malls aren’t filled with stuff as interesting as i’d like for my friends and family. but during the past few weeks – thanks to recommendations and good old fashioned web surfing – i’ve discovered some sites that make finding gifts a little easier. here are just a few.
i haven’t tested every site, so as always, use your common sense when buying stuff online.
uncrate – for cool guy stuff
outblush – for fun girly stuff
charlesandmarie – cool “lifestyle” stuff
georgjensenstore – gorgeous design
greenergrassdesign – artsy and fun
elsewares – independent art & design
uncommongoods – arts & crafts
1ofakindstuff – unique gifts, gadgets & gags
room6 – special things for nice people
etsy – handmade items
wishingfish – eclectic mix of styles
