My Favorite Finds From UncommonGoods

26th October 2017

This is a sponsored post.  All opinions are my own.

Regular readers will know that I like quirky shops that ship to the UK.  (New readers, that’s a thing.)

UncommonGoods is a Brooklyn-based company that offers unique gifts, jewelery, home decor and more.  I love that they work directly with artists and small manufacturers and the stuff they sell is handmade, recycled, organic and cruelty-free.  Literally everything is quirky and beautiful.

While researching another post, I found UncommonGoods, decided that I wanted to buy ALL THE THINGS from them, bookmarked the site and got on with the parts of my day that don’t involve looking at groovy stuff.

Imagine my surprise (really) when I got an email from UncommonGoods, asking me to feature my favorite finds from their site.  Cool beans.

Now.  I’ve never done a sponsored post before, but like that time I bungee-jumped there’s a first time for everything.

And I was planning to include them in an upcoming ‘stuff I like’ post anyway.

They have lots of gifts that you can personalize, for instance, the anniversary of Coffee Date Day is next week and Neil and I would love our own names and city on this Skyline of Love.


And I love this Mother and Daughter letter book set:


And Isla chose this necklace for me:


Because she is.

These gloves are perfect.  Just in time for NaNoWriMo-ing in the frosty north:


They go perfectly with this scarf:


I’ve even highlighted some more interesting wife presents I wouldn’t mind getting.    I’ve promised Neil I’ll act surprised.

Neil found these penguin slippers in their great selection of Christmas stocking fillers, but they don’t have his size:


I think it’s safe to say all future holidays and just because days are sorted.

What’s your favorite find?

    I started getting their catalogs a few years ago and always find something unique I want. I bought a cool laser cut porcelain night life for my son last year that I love. They will be included in one or more of my gift guides, I’m sure!
