A lot of my friends lately have been telling me that they're "out of ideas" when it comes to buying gifts for their significant others and/or family members.

Not that I'm hating on Crate and Barrel, but Uncommon Goods is relatively affordable and they have everything from home & garden to dining to kids and they even have wedding gifts that you can personalize (those can get pricey though).
