As my followers know I am constantly on the lookout for unusual gifts and items for both H and our house and I have hit the jackpot after being introduced to the Uncommon Goods Website.
Uncommon Goods is an independently-owned business with headquarters based in Brooklyn NYC and was founded in 1999. Uncommon Goods feature unique jewelry, designer décor, tabletop items and handcrafted gifts created in harmony without harm to animals or people. Supporting and providing a platform for artists and designers with over half of the products sold being made by hand, one-third of the entire collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials.
As an independent business Uncommon Goods have the freedom to support causes they believe in and to help impact the world in a positive way. Since starting the Better to Give programme 12 years ago, Uncommon Goods have donated over $1million to charities around the world.
There is an amazing plethora of wonderful and quirky items that you simply do not find on the high street upon browsing the website.
As usual I was excited to see what sort of products would be available for children and was delighted to be able to receive the following wonderful and very different items.
Mobi is a bit like scrabble with numbers, H has really enjoyed the opportunity of working out his sums (he loves maths!). It really does challenge children and adults to work out how to use all the pieces and the handy little whale pouch makes it ideal to take out with you to keep little ones busy if you are out and about.
How gorgeous is this pencil or pen holder, to be honest I would say that this could be used for both children and adults it is so cute, lovely and solid ceramic hedgehog it certainly makes things easier for locating pencils quickly.
Now this is my absolute favourite piece and so incredibly practical!
A collapsible bucket and spade! This is the most perfect idea ever, you can flatten it and carry it in a rucksack, seriously I cannot be more impressed with the concept and the product!
The great thing about the website is that it is so easy to browse different sections as you can choose from groups such as gifts for him, art, jewellery, homeware, children’s and women’s items.
Another item I received was a logic puzzle game called Brain String, it is quite addictive and my 81 year dad has spent ages trying to work it out along with H having a play so another item which is really unusual and great for all the family.
My father and my husband are also quite difficult to buy gifts for and without doubt I recommend visiting Uncommon Goods if you are trying to find that something special for someone special.
Finally for the ladies following my blog I can recommend the most amazing handbag which really is very unusual and I have not seen anywhere before in the UK.
This handbag is so soft and has the added bonus of a clutch bag inside it, gorgeous colours and so unusual another great product available from Uncommon Goods.
It is rare to find a place to buy gifts or items that are not the same as everything else on offer and that little bit different but I do highly recommend checking out the Uncommon goods site, I am sure you will find that something special.
