Wanna hear about 1 of the coolest sites around?
That also happens to have some of THE BEST stuff when you're gift shopping for someone?
UncommonGoods is a privately owned retailer, started in 1999 and headquartered in Brooklyn, NY, and they "endeavor to feature unique designs and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the
environment and without harm to animals or people." Half of what they sell is made by hand and most of the products are created here in the USA, and about a third of their collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials.
They have some of the most amazing, unique things. Anytime I'm stumped for gift ideas, Uncommon Goods is my first stop: they even have pages of their site specifically categorized by who you're buying for and/or what the occasion is! Christmas is coming up, so I'd suggest you check out their Christmas gift section here.
Last year, Michael and I got his stepmom and his dad Uncommon Goods' amazing basil growbottle (which I now WANT!) We got them the basil, which is what I'd want too! Essentially it's your own little organic herb garden, sprouting from a re-purposed wine bottle. So, good for your kitchen AND the environment!
Is there a sophisticated whiskey drinker in your life? Surprise them with this amazing whiskey stones gift set. Or maybe you tend to hang around wine drinkers: they have their own category on the site here. Whoever you're shopping for (even you!), I can essentially guarantee you will find some fabulous ideas on their site! And Christmas is approaching, do you still have someone you need to shop for? Are ya stumped and need some new, exciting, gift ideas? Then DEFINITELY check out UncommonGoods!
So....wanna see if you can win a little something to go towards your inevitable UncommonGoods shopping spree?
