Gifts are not worth much when they are impersonal. That’s why I love it when I find a great new website that stocks unique and original items that I’ve never seen anywhere else. Based in the U.S, Uncommon Goods has an eclectic range of homeware and garden decor and because they go out of their way to support small businesses, you can almost guarantee your friends won’t have the same item in their home. Ever buy a nice print cushion cover only to then see it everywhere? You won’t find that with decor from Uncommon Goods because they source from local artists and independent creators.
The best thing about Uncommon Goods is that they know as a business they can have a positive impact on the environment and their community. You may have read my other post where I mentioned being concerned about questionable working practises. Being a certified B corp means Uncommon Goods are conscious of fair working practises, which means my Hippy side can shop with glee! More than that, through their own flagship ‘better to give’ programme Uncommon Goods has donated more than $1 million to charity. They do this by donating $1 with every order made through their website and you get to choose which charity you would like your dollar to go to. Totally lush hey! Now I can shop completely guilt free! So let’s get to it!
I’ve had a good nosey through all their homeware and here are some I particularly liked. Let me know if you can imagine any of these on show in your home. P.s. if you want something truly unique and oh-so-exclusive you can choose from their ‘Uncommon collection’ which is a collection of pieces that meet the highest standards for uncommon design, sustainability, and doing good.
Footprints Rug I love this because it reminds me of the footprints in the sand poem and I love the seaside so it would bring a bit of the beach feel to my home. This is £23.26
Key ring holders. These are silly and fun. Practical and really unique to say the least! These are £14.12.
Wishing Wall. Made in Florida this item is exclusively made for Uncommon Goods so you really won’t find anything like it anywhere else. This is a perfect gift for weddings or baby showers, write a wish for the family on the brightly coloured paper and post it into the wall. It can be hung in the home as a decorative reminder afterwards. I instantly thought it would be good as a prayer wall for kids church. This is £41.54 and can be personalised.
Bee nightlight. Recycled, hand-made and cute. What’s not to love? £31.57
Light box. If you don’t own a light box, are you even a vlogger? From £12.46
Literary candles. Scents of the page. Transport yourself to Sherlock Holmes’ study or Alice’s tea party with these literary scented candles. What a brilliant idea! £13.29
Hand embroidered city pillow. So unique, you can choose a city or a country. They have London, Scotland, Ireland, England ones but no Wales boo hiss! I would buy the Hollywood one anyway! £139.58
Personalised family member signpost. A great feature for the garden, keep all your far away family members in one place on this original sculpture piece. Great talking point at BBQs and get-togethers. From £103.85
Uncommon Goods headquarters are right in the centre of Brooklyn. When you place your order and check out on the website you will have a guaranteed order total so no need to worry about customs fees or taxes added on after.
I hope you found something you like! I have put all these things on my ‘future presents wishlist’. Let me know in the comments below if you love any of the pieces I have chosen.
