If you don’t have much cash to drop this holiday season, you can still manage to get gifts that are cool, fun and economical.

When UncommonGoods asked if I would be interested in curating a gift guide, I jumped at the chance.  As a B Corporation, UncommonGoods uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. They provide a great platform for artists and designers and about one-third of their entire collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials. UncommonGoods offers unique, cool gifts for everyone, including babies and pets.

Here are ten gift ideas under $25.

I Cry Periodically Babysuit

1. I Cry Periodically Babysuit $20. I wish they offered this in adult size as a sweatshirt. I would totally wear this. The elemental certainty of the periodic table brings a playful touch to this nerdy babysuit. The designer used atomic symbols for iodine, chromium, and yttrium to spell out little ones’ go-to mode of communication. Also available in “I Nap Periodically“.


Disappearing Civil Liberties Mug

2. Disappearing Civil Liberty Rights Mug  $13.95. I know my 14-year-old would appreciate this mug. He’s very politically minded and would love to sip with a statement. For those who can appreciate this… Great unique gift!


Dog Bowl Water Bottle

3. Dog Bowl Water Bottle $15. Trying to water dogs on hikes can be messy and inconvenient. This makes it easier. No more bringing a bowl, or pouring water into your hands or trying to pour water into the dog’s mouth. Designed just for dogs, this water bottle keeps your canine companion well hydrated on the go. With just a squeeze of the bottle, the attached dish fills with water for dogs to drink.  BPA free.


Microwave Popcorn Popper

4. Microwave Popcorn Popper $14.99.  Who doesn’t like popcorn? Made from temperature safe borosilicate glass, the main container can be filled with whole kernel corn and then microwaved without the use of oil. The silicone lid doubles as a kernel measurer and butter melter.


Balloon Dog Nightlight

5. Balloon Dog Nighlight $25. How cute is this nightlight? Give his hind paw a gentle squeeze to activate an internal LED that emits an ambient glow for 30 minutes at a time, making this illuminated watchdog a bright choice for a loyal nightlight.


City Map Glass

6. City Map Glass $14.  In my opinion, most men are hard to shop for. These glasses feature an intricate city map that sprawls along the curves of the vessel. They are great for entertaining and will certainly invite conversation. Click here for more gift ideas for men.


Phone Storage Workout Bottle

7. Phone Storage Workout Bottle $14.99. This clever bottle holds your smartphone, credit cards, and cash between two water compartments. The twist-off bottom incorporates a port for headphones so you can keep listening while your phone is stowed.


Toaster Grilled Cheese Bags

8. Toaster Grilled Cheese Bags $9.99. These pouches let you pop a cheese sandwich into the toaster for perfect grilling—no pre-heating the pan, waiting to flip the sandwich, or laborious clean up afterward. Perfect for college kids or anyone who doesn’t want to use a frying pan.


Superfood Teething Toy

9. Superfood Teething Toys $17. What baby wouldn’t want to chew on these soft versions of broccoli, kale, and avocado? Each veggie-shaped toy is easy to grip and made from 100% natural latex, perfect for soothing the ache of teething.


State Dish Towel

10. State Dish Towel $20. Fun way to remember special places. These dish towels are pretty enough to frame.  Each towel is silk screened and then framed with a hand embroidered border on a 100% cotton dish towel.
