Some Uncommon Goods*
Christmas might be over but there’s always some occasion that you need to buy presents for (in fact, my boyfriend, his dad and his mum ALL have birthdays in January!). Recently I’ve found it more and more difficult to come up with ideas of what to get people, especially as people usually just treat themselves now, rather than waiting until their birthday/Christmas/anniversary, etc. It’s also more and more difficult to choose something different – you want a gift that really stands out so that you’ll be remembered as an excellent present-buyer!
Uncommon Goods is an online company that specialises in unusual, quirky giftware, accessories and home decor.
Speaking of personalisation – how cute are these mugs? I love buying couple things and that’s definitely one to put on the list for a future anniversary as they would be perfect for drinking our morning coffee out of (don’t worry, my boyf almost never reads my blog – or goes on the internet! – so this shouldn’t give him any clues as to his future presents!). In fact, Uncommon Goods has a whole host of wonderful gifts that are perfect for your anniversary.
And, if you haven’t got a birthday or other occasion coming up? Then why not treat yourself!
One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to sort the house out and make it more homely and there are some great products for the home on the Uncommon Goods website. One of my favourites is the Fire Escape Shelf which is perfect for space saving in city apartments and gives a whole “New York loft” kind of vibe to your home.
It’s not just the gifts that are cool, the whole’s company’s ethos is pretty darn awesome. If you’re into your sustainability then this is the company for you – they are committed to working with their suppliers to make their products more environmentally friendly and socially responsible and they even collect $1 donations for non-profit organisations at the check out. So when you buy a gift from Uncommon Good, you’re not just giving, you’re giving back too.
