I have to confess something. . .
. . . I am outrageously excited about this post!
You may remember back in December I shared a holiday gift guide. In the post dedicated to the best gifts for kids, I highlighted an awesome mug that has room in it to hide your cookies. That amazing find was from a company called Uncommon Goods.
I find myself browsing their site constantly. They have great host/hostess and housewarming gifts, as well as beautiful engagement or wedding gifts and of course, great finds for the kiddos. If you ever need to find a gift for me, look no further than this page.
Headquartered in Brooklyn, NY, Uncommon Goods' mission is to feature unique designs and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment and without harm to animals or people. More than half the products sold by Uncommon Goods are made by hand, most are made in the United States and about one-third of their entire collection incorporates recycled or upcycled materials. Pretty cool, right?
My newest obsession is their ceramic tray duo. I first noticed it because of the picture of the grilled cheese and tomato soup. When I clicked a bit deeper into the product description, I found the tray can also be used to stuff your face with a duo of ice cream and cake! Now we're talking.
This slate cheeseboard is gorgeous and ideal for entertaining. This is great to have in your own house for parties or to give as a gift. It comes in both red and black slate.
I flipped when I found this item called neighborwoods. This version illustrates Brooklyn, NY. This would be an incredible gift for friends moving to a new city or neighborhood.
The Uncommon Goods site is full of creative gift ideas, many under $100 dollars. Explore additional pieces here.
If you're like me, your life for the past few years has been all about attending other people's weddings. Part of that ritual is finding one-of-a-kind gifts for the bride and groom. Uncommon Goods has a print you can customize with the bride and groom's last names. I love the intersection idea!
The print can also be ordered in these bright, graphic colors.
While on the subject of love, Uncommon Goods has a great list of Valentine's Day gift ideas, check that out here.
On the kiddo front, I can't get over these presidential blocks. I've been streaming The West Wing on Netflix for weeks, so I've had all things USA on my mind lately. I noticed these right away. Fun and educational!
As you can see, there are so many amazing gift ideas. The possibilities are endless!
Now that you're excited to shop, let me raise that excitement level exponentially. The generous people at Uncommon Goods are furnishing one very lucky Pop.Bop.Shop. reader with a $50 gift card.
