  • Meaningful Gifts Can Come in Really Small Packages

     stocking stuffer ideas

    I've come to realize that people either dread the idea of purchasing stocking stuffers, or look forward to it. Personally, I adore the idea of finding small treasures that will light up faces on Christmas morning. Growing up, Santa always filled my stocking with the smallest (but most thoughtful)  gifts.  But the truth is, most stocking stuffers are not thoughtful at all.

    How many of us give or receive stocking stuffers that appear to be from the grocery store impulse buy section? Does chapstick, beef jerky, and gum sound like your typical stocking stuffers?  We can do better. Just because a gift is small doesn't mean it has to be from the gas station or impersonal. This year consider filling their stockings with meaningful gifts they will be as thrilled to receive as the gifts they unwrap from under the tree. Giving a meaningful gift of any size will put a smile on their face (and yours as well).

  • Men Tell All: How to Pick Good Gifts for Guys

    good gifts for guys: bottle opening sunglasses

    Brewsees bottle opening sunglasses are one of the "coolest" Grommets around.

    -------------------------------

    Let’s face it. Even if you think you know how to shop for men, what they want to receive is probably not what you think.  Men can be surprisingly particular, unpredictable and downright difficult to shop for when it comes to gift giving.

    But don’t throw in the towel and pick up a gift card just yet, we're here to help. This week we decided to do some investigating and go straight to the source.  We asked some of our favorite Grommet guys for tips we can use when shopping for them.  Get your pen and paper ready because you may need to take notes.

    Question 1: Do you like to be surprised when given a gift or do you always want to know what you’re about to open?

    Majority Says:  No surprises. However our Business Analyst, Ian, did say he likes surprises once in a while. “I like being surprised, but only if it’s a really good gift. I typically buy myself items that I want. I don't wait around for someone to buy them for me.”

    Take Away: When in doubt, don’t surprise. He’ll be just as appreciative even if he knows what's inside the box.

  • What dads really want

    With Father's Day fast approaching, we took to Twitter to see what some of our favorite dads really enjoy doing. In 140 characters or less, they described their ideal Father's Day.

    --

    dad blogs  - @BenSpark @BenSpark: My Ideal Dad's Day. Breakfast. Drive to the Cape. Family Kayak Trip. Picnic Clambake on the Beach. Movie w/lots of popcorn.

    @backpackingdad - dad blogs  @BackpackingDad: It begins with sleeping in, and ends with a visit to a giant statue of me raised in my honour by a grateful nation. The middle is hazy.

    --

    @CuteMonsterDad: Sleep in. Awaken to pancakes. Stroll in the park. Catch a movie. Poolside barbecue. Kids asleep early. Quality time with my wife.

    @dadofdivas: My ideal day as a dad would be taking the kids our Geocaching just the three of us and exploring the world around us, finding treasurer & fun.

    Any surprises here? I'll be honest I expected at least one mention of golf! What do you have planned for Father's Day?

  • Hand stitching an American pastime

    If you've seen our Daily Grommet video featuring Leather Head Sports, you'll remeber Paul Cunningham. Paul  grew up a baseball lover in the ultimate baseball city, Cooperstown , N.Y, and even worked summers at the Baseball Hall of Fame. After leaving Cooperstown, he took a job as photo editor for Major League Baseball — a career he left behind to make hand-sewn baseballs and footballs that are as all-American as you can get.

    Our friends at Etsy recently made a video with Paul too -- and we'd like to share it with you. This 2 minutes video features Paul in the process of  making a football and  is also a homage to a classic American pastime. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

    One More Yard from Etsy on Vimeo.

  • Giving Dad an experience to remember

    My parents are like many, hard to buy for. They have what they need and they don't ask for much. I knew that the Cloud 9 Living gift would be perfect for my Dad -- and it turned out to be a big hit! He decided to drive an Indy race car as his event. I spoke to him on the phone after and he was quite impressed by their training and operation there at this FL track and he had a blast. He thought it was an amazing experience and was telling me he would want to do a plane ride. I love that he wants to do another one!

  • 5 Unique Gift Ideas - Weekly Grommet Wrap Up

    If you are looking for  unique gift ideas, this week's Grommet line up won't disappoint. From a smashing cake to jewelry that "pops out" -- the line up this week is full of creativity.

    unique gift idea - pinata cake Serenade Chocolatier. It's a piñata, it's a cake – it's a chocolate piñata cake from Serenade Chocolatier.

    SkinnyShirt

    SkinnyShirt. If you love the classic look of a collared shirt under a sweater but you’re not a fan of feeling uncomfortably bulky, you’re going to be thrilled with Julie Kalimian’s creation, dubbed the SkinnyShirt. This ingenious shirt has a stretchy, knit body paired with a woven cotton collar. From the neckline up, the shirt appears to be a classic button-front collared shirt. But below the neckline, it’s all about comfort. Imagine your favorite stretchy, comfy camisole -- that’s how the SkinnyShirt feels. In fact, that’s just how Julie came up with the first prototype for the SkinnyShirt. She asked her local tailor to merge one of her collared shirts and a camisole. (Starting at $68.00) Buy SkinnyShirt here.

    Keys to My Castle. Michele Lilley loved to discover antique keys when she’d go treasure hunting with her grandmother at estate sales and auctions. She used to wonder why modern keys are so plain compared to yesterday’s beautifully ornate keys. Now, instead of wondering, Michele is creating tricked-out keys with designs that range from vintage classics such as fleur-de-lis and crowns to contemporary icons such as baseballs and flip flops. Add personality to your own key chain or give as a unique gift idea -- think housewarming gift! (Starting at $24.95) Buy Keys to My Castle here.

    Spirithoods. Feeling fierce? Frisky? Fraternal? SpiritHoods has the perfect headgear to express your wild side. Each hood is made of faux fur, and you can choose your species: grey wolf, snow leopard, fire wolf, black wolf, grizzly bear or the nighthawk. Buy Spirit Hoods furry animal hats for adults here.Who’s wearing these, you might wonder? Jules spotted animal hoods being worn all over the streets of New York. She posted photos on Facebook and immediately struck a chord with the Daily Grommet community. More than 100 comments later, we started digging into the trend and found SpiritHoods. (Starting at $129) Buy Spirithoods here.

    Pop-Out Jewelry.
    Melissa Borrell merges industrial techniques and organic designs to create remarkable metal jewelry that starts out flat and only reveals its final form when you pop out the shape. It’s fun, contemporary and, since it’s made by lasers, it’s literally cutting edge! (Starting at $28.00) Buy Pop-Out Jewelry here.

  • Spirithoods: Our tribe has spoken

    Today's Grommet, SpiritHoods, began with this curious photo we posted on our Facebook wall ...

    Jules snapped the photo while she was walking the streets of NY during a recent business trip. The animal hat caught her eye and its wearer happily agreed to being in the spotlight.

    So along with the photo, here's what she asked our Facebook community:

    Would you wear this? I saw so many versions of this "giant animal head" hat all over New York this week. Both on men and women. >Jules

    Within instants, we'd received over 100 responses (you can read them all here on our Facebook page). It was obvious we'd hit a nerve. Our Discovery Team began to dig deeper into this idea, vowing to give the people what they wanted: animal-inspired hats.

    SpiritHoods is perhaps the most "socially sourced" Grommet to date (how's that for Citizen Commerce in action?). And that makes today a particularly special day for me as the Community Manager here at Daily Grommet. So speak up folks ... we hear you!

    Now,  let's keep doing it. Have another Grommet idea? Submit it to our Citizens' Gallery or tell us about it on Facebook or Twitter.
