Our 2015 List Of Uncommon Gifts

Bulldog’s annual Uncommon Gift List has become an integral slice of our holiday pie because we believe in putting the soul back into the magical exchange of goods.

Repudiate gift exchanges and obligatory gifting and rekindle your spirit of giving.

To help you do this, we’ve gathered gift ideas for every uncommon person in your life. And if you don’t find something on our list that suits, we hope that we’ve revived your holiday spirit and evoked the fun of exploration for uncommon giving.

PLANT NERD Wyatt Little designed this tongue-in-cheek plant holder. Who doesn’t want a ceramic shoe accompanied by a sweet succulent?

THE CUDDLER When mainstream pillows from Bed Bath & Beyond just won’t cut it, try adding a hipster pillow to the room’s decor. Dressed in a Mumford & Sons styled flannel shirt and a pair of trendy white shades, it’s as cool as the other side of the pillow. 

THE CYNICAL*Jam-packed and oozing with passion, this colossal print should inspire even negative Nancy to backflips and chasing butterflies. This design was a collaboration between GFDA and Ricardo Gonzalez. The 3-color print is silkscreened by Visual Mechanics on a whopping 4ft x 6ft sheet of 140 lb. Hot Press Water Color Paper 100% Premium Cotton Rag. Hell yeah! *Sense of humor required. 

THE BLACK SHEEPThere’s one in every crowd. And what says I’m different more than a triangular notebook designed by Tan Mavitan

THE COLOR CONNOISSEURExpress your gratitude in color with this chromatic puzzle by designer Bryce Wilner. A gift with an edge, this ombre spectrum encourages play and togetherness. 

THE INDECISIVE REBELFor the badass on your gifting list–that person who craves making a statement yet has a slight commitment phobia–yeah that one. We found the perfect gift that keeps giving, a six-month subscription to Tattly

THE TRAVELING TYPE NERDOverload that special someone with this comprehensive collection of stationery objects. It’ll keep their thoughts and messages moving at an incredible value. 

THE DESSERT BEER LOVERStone Brewing Co.’s limited brew by their AHA Rally & Homebrew Competition Champion, Juli Goldenberg. Monkey Paw is a 24-pack of Carrot Golden Ale–a delicious version of a classic Belgian-style Ale. As the name implies, this beer is richly aromatic and envelopes the palate with carrot-cake spices and subtle malt sweetness followed by a medium-dry finish. Bottoms up. 

THE PERSON THAT HAS EVERYTHINGAnd if not they buy it themselves. Buy them a gift they don’t really need, but something they will use daily. A 10-foot charging cable with a beautifully designed weighted knot that can be anchored to any flat surface, so it’s there when it’s needed.
