I cannot be the only one who has those people in my life that are tricky to buy for? The ones who seemingly have everything and need nothing? So difficult to think up gift ideas for them, but perhaps help is at hand with UncommonGoods.
UncommonGoods offers a range of unusual gifts, half of which are made by hand, and you can be sure that they are doing so mindful of the individuals and world around them, including donating $1 to charity with every purchase made. At the core of the company is a great respect for the integrity of the creative individual and the belief that it is their responsibility to use their business to impact the world in a positive way. They have also introduced the Uncommon Collection in 2015, an exclusive assortment of products that meet their highest standards for uncommon design, sustainability, and doing good. They are based in the US, and they do ship to the UK.
I particularly liked browsing the gardening gifts section, click here for the full range, with items like these catching my eye…
DIY Gnome Terrarium Kit, Dawn Redwood Bonsai Forest, Growing Wishes Seed Kit, Spiky Owl Balancer Stake, Wooden Butterfly House
So quirky and individual! That gnome is so sweet.
They also have an extensive art range over there, some really unusual vases, candles and lighting, and some brilliant storage and organisation products…
Miniature Staircase Shelf, Kinetic Gear Key Holder, Handmade Nesting Baskets – Set of 3, Paper Clip Memo Board
You can take a look here at their entire Home and Garden collection.
There are plenty of gift ideas in just that one collection, and UncommonGoods also sell jewellery, beauty products, children’s toys, personalised items, books, accessories and more. I did also spot that they have a stationery department so I’m off to browse that one now….
