Uncommon Gifts

My friend Ingrid aka The Baghag has great taste - not only in bags but also when it comes to gift-giving. Her presents are always thoughtful, quirky, witty and definitely display worthy!

Take this Calf & Half creamer Ing sent me from Uncommon Goods (which happens to have tons of great gift ideas! It's worth checking out!)

It adds a touch of whimsy to an otherwise random task of drinking coffee! Like getting milk or cream stright from a cow's udder, heehee!

I usually go to Anthropologie and Amazon for hostess and birthday presents, but Uncommon Goods is now on my to go list when it comes to gift giving! I've got Ing to thank for that!

This is another adorable piece from her that our guests make a go for, whether they be 2 or 40! A tic-tac-toe set with playing pieces made out of bags and shoes! Who can't resist shiny bits that you can literally play with? Berry especially loves to crawl her way out of my arms to get a piece in her mouth. I make it a point to keep this away from her though. Too young for purses and heels Berry!

Here's another cute piece that hangs just outside our kitchen. Ingrid knows I enjoy cooking so she thoughtfully got me this one time we were out shopping in Binondo. So cute and so me!

I know sometimes getting a generic gift is such an easy way out, but a thoughtful present can definitely make anyone's day! It's also a good reminder to keep in touch, because you're never out of sight somehow! Thanks for the presents and the inspiration Ing!

Hi, where did you get the super cute kitchen hanging decor? :)

The kitchen hanging decor is from a store in Binondo (Chinatown in Manila)! I just can't seem to remember the name of the store, but it's made in Japan! I'll try to remember and post it here when I do!
