Uncommonly Good Gifting

Remember the days of the catalog? It would come in the post and you'd tear out or dog ear all your favorite things? Now you can just scroll through on your phone or iPad and pin all those same items. I used to get the post, sift through the mail and pile the magazines and catalogs on a side table. But there were always those few that I just had to devour immediately, flipping to see what was new since the last one. UncommonGoods was one of those for me. Always something different, something handmade, something that you couldn't find just anywhere. Before there were local artisans setting up shop on etsy there was UncommonGoods. This was the first place I went to when I needed a special gift. Looking back, I think I gifted myself just as much as I did others, so when the people at UncommonGoods contacted me asking if I'd like to review one of their products I nearly squealed with delight. I have an arsenal of favorites from them and some new things I was dying to get my hands on.

UncommonGoods stemless peacock wine glasses; online and at home
I took them up on their offer and ordered up the stemless peacock wine glasses. At $49.95 for a set of four, they'd make a fantastic housewarming gift but I'm keeping them all for myself. They are quite a bit larger than your typical stemless glass and their subtle weight paired with the etching of peacock plumes make them elegant-yet-fun at the same time.


UncommonGoods is the place to go for unique gifts for men, women and kids. From personalized prints to jewelry and home decor, there is something for everyone on your list. They are committed to offering merchandise from artists to small suppliers that make their products in a more socially and environmentally responsible manner. Most of the products they carry are created in the USA and one-third of their collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials. Through their Better To Give program, they donate $1 from every purchase to charity.

Picking favorites is easy for me and, believe it or not, the picks below have been heavily edited. There are so many things I love that it was hard to narrow them down.

literary coasters / branch skewers / slang flashcards / appetizer platter / confetti wine glasses

  1. Love getting their catalog in the mail! Of course, the "cat" glasses I sent you were from them.
