Giveaway: Celebrate Father's Day With Uncommon Goods!

6/03/2013


Happy new week sweet readers! I feel slightly more organized and less frazzled this week, thank goodness. Though note the use of the word: slightly. Anyway, it feels like it's going to be a good day, even if it is a Monday.

Did you guys know that Father's Day is coming up? Didn't we just have Mother's Day? Or Easter for that matter? At any rate, if you're like me, you may not have marked your calendar or even processed the idea of a gift yet for Dad (or your husband, if he's a Dad). Here is where we are throwing you a bone (or in this case, a really awesome giveaway). We've teamed up with the fantastic site Uncommon Goods to offer one of you a $50 credit to the shop where you can pick out a fabulous gift for Dear Old Dad that he will surely love!

Here's how to enter:
Leave a comment below telling us a favorite item from Uncommon Goods. Viola! Easy as pie!

I've outlined some of my personal favorites after the jump if you'd like to see.


1. Does a man want to smell peonies wafting through his house everyday? Maybe, but maybe not.
    Give your Dad the smell of a campfire, coffee or even a pizza with a Man Candle or Man Can.
    Rad.
2. Puzzles! Get this awesome Great Minds Puzzle (perfect for those history buffs)!
3. Not gonna lie, I totally want one of these for our place. Love city skylines!
4. This way his wallet will never break!
5. A Growler. Because what guy doesn't want one of these for his favorite brew?
6. Give him a chance to spruce up his iPhone with an awesome new bicycle case. Love the wood.
7. Love these city map glasses for after-dinner drinks. Which cities would you choose?
8. Perfect for the explorer: A Scratch Map, so that he can keep track of all of his world travels.
9. A bottle opener made from game day bats. As a big SF Giants fan, I even want one! :)
10. Seriously. Because everyone needs a laugh!

Good luck friends, a winner will be announced this Friday morning!
