When it comes time to begin sorting out my holiday shopping lists, I tend to inevitably become overwhelmed with the little or lackluster ideas that come to mind when I ponder on gift giving. Luckily for me (and I'm sure many other uninspired givers), I thought of the awesome website that is UncommonGoods, a quality quirky online shop that sells the coolest collection of one-of-a-kind inventory. To top it off, their integrity as a company is based off of new-age sustainable practices such as featuring small business and locally-grown artists, promoting the most environmentally and socially conscious products they find, and many more honorable fair trade features that I love and support with all my heart.

I love to scroll through both of their specially curated gift ideas for men and women, and this year I found so many awesome treasures to add to my own wishlist too. At the top of my list has to be the Diana Instant Camera, the Deep Sea sand art piece (I haven't seen one of those contraptions since I was a kid!), and the Natural Beauty Skincare deck.

I personally believe that one of the best parts of their business is how affordable a majority of the gifts are. There is truly somewhere there for everyone, and so you can check off your to-buy list in no time without feeling any dread or stress. Check out their humongous selection of holiday gifts here and get a head start before the seasonal rush.

Happy shopping!

Achieve your goals in silence.

Stay busy watering your own grass, and planting your garden with seeds that are soulfully enriching.

Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose, or paint can manage to escape the madness, melancholia, the panic and fear which is inherent in a human situation.
— Graham Greene

I keep thinking about that tribe of baboons where all the alpha males died from eating poison garbage and then the baby boy monkeys were taken care of by the lady monkeys and never got socialized to be aggressive so they all just live peacefully and groom each other instead of fighting and killing each other and its been generations of that, it only took one wipe out of the aggressive males to change the whole social order of the species, I am crying they must be so much happier.

Being honest may not get you a lot of friends but it'll always get you the right ones.
— John Lennon

You ruin your life by tolerating it. At the end of the day you should be excited to be alive. When you settle for anything less than what you innately desire, you destroy the possibility that lives inside of you, and in that way you cheat both yourself and the world of your potential. The next Michelangelo could be sitting behind a Macbook right now writing an invoice for paperclips, because it pays the bills, or because it is comfortable, or because he can tolerate it. Do not let this happen to you. Do not ruin your life this way. Life and work, and life and love, are not irrespective of each other. They are intrinsically linked. We have to strive to do extraordinary work, we have to strive to find extraordinary love. Only then will we tap into an extraordinarily blissful life.
