There are two things that stress me out about the holidays, giving gifts and getting gifts.  (Ok there are like a million things but let’s focus on gifts for now, ok?)    Since the act of giving and getting gifts stress me out, I am grateful for anything that makes the process a little easier, Gift Uncommon makes it a lot easier so I am super grateful.
Shopping for everyone on your nice list can get overwhelming.  There’s your family, friends, kids’ teachers and coaches, co-workers, boss, and then always some random person who you never would have thought would give you a Christmas gift.  Gift Uncommon is the perfect choice for taking a little of the gift giving heat off.  Anyone who lives or works in Southie is the perfect person to give a Gift Uncommon gift card to since they can use it at multiple local businesses to buy anything from a cup of coffee to a new dress to a fitness class to dinner and drinks.  Nothing stresses me out than some random surprising me or my son with a gift (it happens EVERY year) so I grabbed a few just to have on hand in case I need them, seriously the best idea I’ve ever had.

Now you might be thinking “yeah I get being stressed out about giving gifts, but who in their right mind gets stressed out about getting gifts?”  Well, first of all just let me feel my feelings, ok?  Second of all it’s not so much physically getting the gifts, its answering the question “what do you want for Christmas?”  I hate asking for a specific item, and I really hate leaving it to chance and getting something fugly.  Now when people ask me what I want I just say a Gift Uncommon gift card instead of having to get into specifics like my size (none of your business), my second choice (in case those earrings from Wears + Wares I want are sold out), or even letting the person know how I’m going to use it (maybe I really need my chin waxed at the Beauty Bar).

Supporting local businesses is important, and Gift Uncommon is making it super easy.  You can take care of everyone on your list and support multiple local businesses all in one shot.  You can purchase your gift cards HERE and we’d love to see how you spend them after Christmas!

Give the gift of Southie!  Stop by their pop-up shops at Indulge Day Spa on December 23rd from 4pm-8pm and December 24th from 10am-4pm
