Top 5 Gifts at Uncommon Goods for People Who Like to Throw Parties

 Chatting with a friend the other day about places we like to shop she mentioned Uncommon Goods,  as one of the places she visits regularly when looking for the perfect gift.  To be honest I hadn't visited Uncommon Goods site in awhile and WOW! I can see why it's a go to site for gifts.   I really like that they work with artists and small manufacturers.  Several of my friends are artists so I know the value of supporting their trades.

Here's my Top 5 Gifts for people who like to throw parties.  Whether you're the one throwing the parties or you need a hostess gift for someone in your life, like me ;), who likes throwing parties, these gifts can't miss.

1. Macaron Kit 
The DIY kit section here  is every hobby enthusiasts dream.  From cheese making, to sushi making to brewing kits and more.  I'd never run out of party ideas shopping this section.  Every weekend, ok, every other weekend, don't want to burn my friends out, I could host a DIY party.  Since I love to bake I'd start with the macaron kit, My friend and I tried making macarons once before but we didn't have this great kit to make it easier.  I think I need to host another macaron making party.

2. Cheese Boards
Fall is here and that means cheese and wine parties.  What a great way to spend time catching up your girl-friends.  There are some beautiful cheese boards to be found.  Not only are these great for gifts for yourself but they are perfect for hostess gifts.  Cheese boards are one of those things that people who throw parties always have on their wish list but just never seem to buy.

 3. Lightbox
I love light boxes for parties and when the party is over you can use them as decor. They are SO hot right now.   Fun for teens, friends and hostess gifts.

 4.  Smartphone Instant Photolab
Tech gadgets are almost always associated with men, and while there's a great men's gift section, here  I say women love tech toys too.  How fun is this Smartphone Instant Photolab for parties. Set up a fun backdrop, snap some silly pics and boom! you can send your friends home with a party souvenir. I have a feeling your friends will want to snap more pics at your party just so they can use this fun tech toy.

5. Can't forget the kiddo's
While I don't have kids, many of my friends do and they can't always leave them at home to attend my parties.  Here's where the kids gift section comes in handy. Loads of fun gifts for all ages can be found here.  I love these animal temporary tattoos. They're so bright and colourful and if you have several kids over they can make up little stories with them and entertain themselves for hours so mom can enjoy time with the adults.
