Uncommon Gift Ideas | Inexpensive Budget Friendly

Gifts can be hard to buy. I love finding ones that no one else would be giving. Uncommon is my thing, or at least I try for it to be me. Here are my favorite Uncommon gifts!


1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 

Iconic Coffee Cup: 

I had to have this cup! I mean, iconic New York coffee cart for this girl who has never gone to New York but wants to was a MUST. Be on the lookout for a chic blog post featuring it soon!

Come in Go Away Door Mat:

When you want to be polite but are so over your visitors 😉 Just kidding!!! Great for a friend that has the best sense of humor.

Homesick Candle:

When we lived in California, I was so homesick for Oregon. This candle is chic, minimalistic, and catches you in your heartstrings.

Love Necklace:

What’s not to love about a love necklace 😉 I am obsessed with simplistic necklaces, especially ones with sweet sentiments like this.

Makeup Remover Cloth:

Function meets chic! I love my makeup remover cloths. It’s something that not everyone knows about so it makes for an uncommon gift that is pretty and useful.

My Hair Stuff Bag:

From a bag lady, you can never have too many little organizer bags. Let me tell you. This is perfect for travel, gym bag, or tote for work!

Sushi Making Kit:

I am actually going to buy this one. The price is ON POINT, especially to learn a new skill and have a fun date night or girls night!

Chai Tea Concentrate:

I love my chai tea and have been looking for a new concentrate since taking dairy out of my diet. This is such a great idea to put with a cute mug…I listed some more cute ones below. Perfect for giving to a new mama as a baby welcoming gift or a just because gift.

Instant Coffee Cubes:

Instant and Coffee….you are my two favorite words because that means instant energy. I have learned to have instant coffee in my handbag at all times cause you never know when someplace won’t have coffee and that will be the time you need a cup! These look like the perfect treat to give someone as a functional and cute gift!

Wood Coat Hook:

This coat hook could easily be used for towels, dog leashes, scarves, jewelry, etc. The price is so good and the versatility cannot be beaten.

Glass Vase:

You can never have too many vases in my book. This one provides a great look that is uncommon in most vases. Perfect for spray roses from your garden!

The Neighbors….Doormat: 

This made me laugh out loud! When Jason and I buy a house, I think this will be on our doorstep.

Cactus Cork:

Cute and functional. Plus, if you have no to do lists (never happens for me!) then it still functions as a cute decor piece!

State Slate Cheese Plate:

Cheese and wine nights are some of our favorites. This is perfect as a house warming gift, wedding gift, or as a birthday gift with cheese and meat!

Merlot Infused Coffee:

This just sounds amazing! A deep rich coffee with an undertone of Merlot 🙂 Perfect for your friends that love coffee and wine. Why not combine them?!

Donut Warming Mug:

Everyone needs this. I mean, how did I not come up with this. Life is so much better with coffee and a warm donut. For all your sweet tooth friends!

Infused Water Bottle:

These are my favorite water bottles! For any friend or family member looking for a better way to enjoy their water. I love to infuse strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, and lime!

Ice Cream Socks:

Socks are the best. Especially these because I can’t have dairy so they are ice cream I can have! Do you have any dairy allergy friends? These are perfect for them 🙂

Party Sprinkles:

These were just so cute! For the person that has everything and says to not buy them a gift. Sprinkles make you smile and everyone deserves to smile.

Mason Jar Measuring Cups:

I have loved these for years! Convenient because they stack on your kitchen counter but also cute as decor!

Make Your Own Flower Crown Kit:

Hello, this is amazing! For anyone that loves flowers and crafts. Being given a kit that has everything in it and develop a new skill is the best gift!

Composition Notebook Pouch:

Cute for back to school, teachers, or graduates. I love chic pieces like this that are still functional. I would even use it to carry lipstick and such in it for my handbag!

Vodka Tonic Glasses:

Perfect bar cart addition! I love these!!! They are chic and useful. I would even drink my orange juice in them, love! Function and chic for the gal that has everything.

Tea Bag Holding Mug:

This is genius! My tea bag always falls! Get them a good book, a box of tea, and this mug. Hello, perfect gift!
