Anniversary Gifts

This post is sponsored by Uncommon Goods. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

A couple of weeks ago Jeff and I remembered it was our dating anniversary, and now we're somehow only two months away from our first wedding anniversary! (Psst want to see the million wedding photos I posted? You can see them all again here). I understandably have anniversary presents on the brain. Of course, we decided our roof deck will be our present to each other (err, it may also have been our Christmas present to each other...) but that doesn't mean I can't get him something small, right? Don't worry, I'll tell him I'm getting him something small and not buy a present for him and expect that he'll think to get me a present and then be all mad when he doesn't ;)

I feel like at this point in our relationship I've gone through all of the regular gifts for a man, like a watch, computer bag, clothes, a dopp kit, drinking accessories, grill accessories... I was looking for something different, and that's when Uncommon Goods stepped in. Uncommon Goods offers fun and different items you won't find anywhere else, like jewelry, designer decor, tabletop items, and unique gifts. Gifts for men are always super hard so it's great to have Uncommon Goods as a resource when my brain goes totally blank. They also offer a whole range of personalized gifts (find them here) that are so much more than a monogram, like art, kitchen items, this super adorable wedding bowl. On top of that they also care about giving back - through their Better to Give program Uncommon Goods donates $1 to the non-profit of your choice. Since they started the Better to Give program 12 years ago, Uncommon Goods has donated over $1Million to charities around the world!

So anyways, on to what I picked out for Jeff! I know that the first anniversary is supposed to be paper (ahem, only because I read Gone Girl, which is a particularly weird reason) but wood is like, pre-paper, amiright? These Chicago "Neighborwoods" coasters and wall decor are so adorable I'm definitely saying that yes, they count ;) I mean the little Lake Michigan one? Dying. And, you know, Jeff loves them, which is really the most important thing. The coasters and wall decor also come in sets for a bunch of other cities in the U.S. and Europe (the European coasters are here) so you can find a set that's special for you. If I picked a second set I would definitely go for Rome - it's where we went on our honeymoon!
