...because home doesn't happen overnight.

*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.*

Congrats to Josha. A turquoise tea kettle is at the top of her Christmas wish list. How fun!

I’ve made it my personal goal to have my Christmas shopping done by December 1st. {If you’re already finished, I envy you.} So I have gifts on the brain today which happens to fall right in line with this week’s giveaway.

uncommon goods

UncommonGoods is my go-to for unique gifts. I always manage to find something I’ve never seen before. From jewelry to home decor to toys & games, the inventory is all-encompassing yet curious, special and sometimes personal. I especially like that the company supports eco-friendly and local artists. Many items are handmade from reclaimed or recycled materials. Above are my top picks for Christmas 2013 but if you’re in need of more ideas for the ladies, check this out.

One lucky House*Tweaking reader is about to win the equivalent of a Christmas elf. Pointy shoes not included. See entry details below.

PRIZE: $100 gift card to UncommonGoods

RULES: You must be at least 18 years old. This giveaway is open to international readers! But, please, no P.O. boxes. One entry per email address.

TO ENTER: Leave a comment on this post proclaiming “GIMME THE GOODS!”

DEADLINE: Enter before 9:00 p.m. EST on Sunday, November 3rd. One random winner will be announced Monday, November 4th.

WHILE YOU’RE AT IT: Since we’re talking Christmas gifts…what’s at the top of your want list this year? I’m assuming you’ve been good.

i will probably ask for some hardwood floors (lol!). Whenever I see something I might like, but wouldnt buy for myself) throughout the year I always text my dad about it. He keeps a running list on his phone so he can stay on budget and make sure he doesnt miss anything! Last year I got new pillows and new towels :)

My husband says that I come up with something new each month, even though I can’t remember what I’ve said before. I can remember what I really want, a new Simply Calphalon sauté pan. I guess you want things like that when you get older.

My Christmas wish would be a Christmas miracle. I want our house to sell so my 3-year-old son and I can be reunited with daddy, who has been working in another city since FEBRUARY.

The top of my wish list? All I REALLY want is a night in with the hubs. No phone calls, no loud and obnoxious techno music from the neighbors below, no. I just want a calm evening with a new movie, snuggles, and some hot chocolate. If someone wants to cook for me, that would also be much appreciated.

I’ve wanted a new dslr for a while now and have been drooling over Canon’s new 70D and dropping hints like crazy to my husband!

GIMME THE GOODS! I’m with Kim on that one…I’ve got those super practical mama gifts on my list: a new toaster, stuff like that. If I could get a gift card to get accessories, I’d be one happy lady. Oh! Or a few months to Ancestry.com; I’m dying to delve into our family histories.

gimme the goods! Although it seems to early to be thinking about Christmas still (what about thanksgiving!) I am hoping to get a fire pit for an anniversary present, and if not then I will probably add it to the christmas list.

reply )

28.October.2013

“GIMME THE GOODS!” I’m the same way, but I shoot for all gifts to be purchase by Thanksgiving, so I can enjoy the decorating and wrapping of each gift during the month of December.

GIMME THE GOODS! Um, window treatments! We got a quote for Hunter Douglas roller shades for our living and dining room – $2000! I was hoping to sew some drapes for our living room bay window, but due to space restrictions, they won’t work. We’ve been living with the ancient basic roller shades (ala Home Depot) for the past year – I think it’s time to bite the (very pricey) bullet.
