Whoa Baby.

For reals.  UncommonGoods.com is the best shopping site ever.  If you’ve gotten a gift from us over the past couple of years (when we’re not being pinko commies and doling out Kiva gift certificates) – especially a baby gift – it’s probably from there.  I mean where else can you get everything from a pack of peepee teepees to a onesie declaring your baby’s illiteracy?  If you have a baby girl, expect to receive a smartly wrapped bright blue box with a happy green ribbon – and, inside, a pink snapsuit that proclaims “No one puts baby in the corner.”  Perfect.


It’s nice to find a place where you can buy cool not-sugar-sweet clothes and toys and fun stuff.  Here’s just some of the baby stuff they have available.  But check out the other kids’ stuff – and definitely the regular people stuff, too.  Lots of great home decor, art, jewelry, and other treats.

Seriously – I’m turning you on to a gem of a site.  You can thank me later.

Clay made this great site, PlusOneMe.com, that’s all about being nice. How many times a day do you do something or make something for no other reason than you want to do something nice for someone?


Anyway, +1me is easy: you enter your friend’s email address [that’s how you find people – and validate the fact that you know them] – and then you pick all of the awesome qualities you see in your friend and send them.  You even have a chance to give reasons why you’ve +1ed your friend. For example, I +1ed Adam for Humor – ’cause he’s quite a humorician. Piece of cake, right? Go give it a try! And register so Clay gets more users!
