    Promising review: "What describes the perfect gift? Part science experiment, part culinary experience, something to be enjoyed over and over again! And what you create is a tasty beverage, that can be enjoyed by the whole family; kids can drink it plain while the adults can mix it however they like. Highly recommend." —Me

    6. Kabob grilling baskets for making the perfect BBQ treat this summer.

    Four kabob grilling baskets laid out on a plate and filled with vegetables
    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "These are a time-saver for grilling veggies. It used to take me 30 minutes to painstakingly thread veggies onto skewers, and they would frequently split. Now I just load them in the baskets and carry them out on a sheet pan. It's easy to brush on marinade through the wires. I have a small grill and these fit just fine and even have room left over for veggie burgers. I was worried the grill lid wouldn't close, but it does. These are well designed, and I'm going to get another set so I can have grilled veggie leftovers for the week." —Kiki

    Price: $17

    7. A 3D lake topography art piece that's as educational as it is beautiful.

    Uncommon Goods

    Check out the full list of lakes available!

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a gift for my brother who lives on a small lake in Michigan where he's hosted our family for a reunion. This lake is VERY small, so I was shocked that this perfect item was available. He displays it on his coffee table and loves that it shows the depths of the lake." —Karen

    Price: $98+ (available in four sizes/styles)

    8. A handmade self-draining soap dish – it lets excess water flow away, keeping soapy puddles at bay. Keep your bar soaps around longer with this ceramic sculpture.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "I was using a washcloth to keep soap dry...then a plastic soap dish, then a soapstone dish with drainer all-in-one, which was heavy and difficult to clean. All were tacky-looking or cumbersome and still required a bit of cleanup. This beautiful soap holder is lovely to look at and utilitarian. It sends the soap residue right down the drain." —Steph

    Price: $24

    9. A scratch-off poster that lets you turn your reading list into art! Read your way through these 100 books and scratch them off as you go.

    Hand scratches "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" off the poster
    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "Love these scratch-off posters! I have ordered and gifted a variety of them. This one, though, may be my favorite. It's such a blast to give to someone but also look at together with a group and see how many each of you has read. The poster is actually pretty thick and good quality for the price. The scratch-off sections work really well and the residual scratch off dust doesn't stick to the poster the same way a lot of these do." —AllSmiles

    Price: $15 (available in two styles)

    10. A handmade meditation mug with a labyrinth surface, so you can clear your mind as you sip your favorite brew.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "I wanted a tool that I could when I wasn't in my office or at home. It's the perfect weight for a pen, but also has so many other uses. I bought one for myself as well as for a gift exchange. Love having all these tools (pen, screwdriver, and ruler) in one object." —Peel

    Price: $25

    12. A baseball game you can (safely) play in your living room. Roll the dice and batter up!

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "I did not think such a simple game could be so much fun! My dad is a Yankees fan, and his basement is filled with sports and drinking signs. He loved it and is still undefeated." —Em

    The Intersection of Love print depicting "Adamson" and Williams" on intersecting street signs
    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "I bought this as a five-year anniversary gift for my husband. Turns out he almost bought the same thing for me! How's that for the intersection of love? It looks beautiful hanging in our living room. I opted to only add our wedding year and not the current year because to me it seemed like either a) the marriage only lasted five years (2015-2020), or b) I would have to buy another one every five years so that it wouldn't seem like the marriage only last five years! Personal preference." —Bejuled

    Price: $75+ (available unframed or in any of five frame materials).

    19. A set of six jumbo yard dice so you can take your outdoor games to the next level. These handmade pieces even come with instructions for how to play four different dice games in case you're not sure where to start.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "Although there will be other uses, we primarily play Yahtzee with these dice. The grandchildren especially like to play. With their size and outdoor capabilities, we should have a ball at our family reunion!" —Grammy

    Price: $50

    20. A smartphone sanitizer that zaps away nasty germs using Ultra-violet light. With built-in acoustic amplifiers, you can turn this 10-minute procedure into a dance break.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "We often forget how many places our phone goes with us and how many things it touches. It can so easily slip onto the floor (public bathrooms, movie theaters, etc). It feels good to know I can keep my phone with me without bringing all those germs to bed. This product is extremely easy to use." —Nikolas, Fellow Student

    Price: $80

    Price: $30

    23. A sand art sculpture that changes every time you rotate it. This handmade charmer will delight you and your guests with its glittering landscapes.

    The deep sea sand art piece
    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "When this first arrived, I was discouraged because the sand fell very quickly and did not produce any of the advertised effects. If this happens to you, don't fear! You just need to add more air. I was intimidated but after reading the instructions, it was a very easy fix and the sand fell perfectly, creating mountains and really wonderful. Definitely worth the investment!" —Chels

    Price: $95

    24. A geode puzzle sure to give you flashbacks to seventh grade Earth Sciences class. Each piece was cut to resemble a geode's actual crystalline structure.

    Three geode puzzles; one in pink, one in blue, one in multi
    Uncommon Goods

    Each puzzle is 160-180 pieces, so they might not take long to finish, but would totally be worth framing because they're truly gorgeous!

    Promising review: "I love the jagged shape of each piece and the vivid colors! The larger shaped pieces added interest and anchors to solving the puzzles. Interesting to note the picture on my box of the pink puzzle was reversed so the location of the larger pieces was different - made me 'think outside the box!'" —Gram

    Price: $65

    25. A cheesemaking kit that will have you saying buon appetito and kissing the chef...especially if *you're* the chef!

    The Italian Cheese Kit sits on a countertop behind a plate with a caprese salad

    Price: $29
