We’re officially in the midst of the holiday gifting season and if you’re anything like me, you’re spending your nights scouring your favorite sites, on the hunt for something truly special to gift the people in your life. One of my favorite spots to peruse? Uncommon Goods. Expertly living up to its name, if you want to find something unique and bound to astound any giftee, this is the place to look. The person I find the hardest to shop for is my mother. When peppering her with questions about what I can get her, I either get one of two answers: “I already have everything I need!” or the dreaded, “I really don’t know.” Needless to say, many of my gifts for her have come from Uncommon Goods. Last week, while browsing the site, I came across one of the most interesting finds I’ve seen in a minute (and something I know she’ll adore): an Indoor S’mores Fire Pit.

This chic little kit comes with everything you need to (safely) enjoy s’mores anytime, anywhere. Complete with a stylish handmade base, stainless-steel skewers with a glass to store them, a roasting pit, and a snuffer for when you’re ready to put out the flame, the only thing left to do is pick up your favorite chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows, and get down to business. Setup is easy: To use, just place it on your table, fill the pit with food-grade chafing fluid for fuel, and get to roasting. That’s it. The flame burns for 35-45 minutes, which is just enough time to enjoy a serving or two of that ooey, gooey chocolatey goodness. Yum!

The reviews have me confident this gift is going to be a resounding success. One shopper shared, “We ordered this as a family Christmas gift and it did not disappoint! We have used it several times already with great results. Although we were a little nervous about the open flame in our kitchen, we haven’t had any problems with it at all. It makes delicious s’mores!” Another went on to write, “This was a great product to help us get back into the S’mores game after moving from a very cold state to a warm one. It’s sturdy and small, we use it right in the living room or on the kitchen table. We love it so much!” And don’t worry — apartment-dwellers are digging this, too: “Seriously an awesome product, especially if you don’t have the ability to roast marshmallows over an outdoor fire (ie: you live in an apartment)!”

The Indoor S’mores Fire Pit costs $175, making it a definite splurge, but a fun one at that. So, whether you’re shopping for the s’mores lover in your life or are simply looking for something to wow the perennially hard-to-shop-for, you can’t go wrong with this delectable pick. Now, someone pass me the marshmallows!
