We prefer to do a lot of our shopping online. We like the convenience and variety of what we can buy and then have it delivered right to our front door. And we love Uncommon Goods. Plain and simple. Uncommon Goods specializes in unique and creative designs. They also specialize in recycled and upcycled products. Two of my very favorites are the ‘recycled windowpane bowl’ and the ‘upcycled wool trapper hat.’ In fact, I’m over the top in love with the trapper hat!! Uncommon Goods is also educational. Just check out the Uncommon Knowledge page.
The Uncommon Goods “Mission Statement” (here) focuses on the planet, having a positive impact and handmade, recycled and organic products. They make huge strides for the planet by making their catalogs from FSC certified forests, and give back through the B Corporation, of which they are founding members. We believe the idea behind Uncommon Goods is what our planet needs.
I love giving and receiving holiday gifts! Especially gifts like the flying animal ornament. I have a weakness for the quote, “When Pigs Fly.” And this flying pig is simply magical! The tiny lights on our Christmas tree reflect off the lightweight aluminum to create delightful prisms. This sweet little pig hanging from it’s own organza ribbon makes my heart sing. The flying pig, handmade in India, is this year’s traditional addition to our Christmas tree.
Uncommon Goods has awesome and unique gifts for the men in your life on this page! We’re giving our bachelor son this awesome Shower Squid for Christmas. It is so him! The squid is currently available in red, black and blue. It hangs from the shower head and holds a variety of shower products.
The nine latex rubber squid tentacles are different sizes to hold everything you may need in the shower. You can even adjust the hanging bottles upside down so you conquer every last drop! Made in China, the shower squid keeps your bath/shower organized and most importantly: fun!
Do you have an avid traveler on your gift list? Check out the gifts here. Traveling the world is one of our favorite things to do. I could shop Uncommon Goods all day long, filling my shopping cart with the likes of the travel stub diary, the scratch travel journal, the all the taxis in New York print, the vintage postmark necklace, and the travel wish box. I’m a wee bit crazy about that delightful little box!
One of the best things about being a fan of Uncommon Goods is the opportunity to be the first to see fresh creativity each time a new product arrives. You have the opportunity to vote for your favorite and help decide what products will become Uncommon Goods. How cool is that?
