Disclosure: I was given 50 dollars to spend at Uncommon Goods. All opinions are my own.
I first discovered Uncommon Goods about a year ago, and I have loved that site ever since. Think homemade goods, custom gifts that are very unique and personable.
Since I live far away from friends and family with lots of family back in Minnesota, a place like Uncommon Goods is a great place to buy gifts especially when I’m looking for gifts under 50 dollars. Check out a few examples here.
So, I chose two items from Uncommon Gifts:
The first item was a Heart Vase. Now when I was shopping I thought the vase was a lot bigger than it was so when it showed up my doorstep I was a bit disappointed, but the artist that created this creation completely turned it around with their personal enclosed message telling me about the vase.
“When you’re in love, you wear your heart on your sleeve and feel it catch in your throat, but you always know it rests safe in the hands of your special someone.
These openhearted vases visually capture that enchantment of romance. A thrilling swirl of colored glass reaches up to a heart-shaped mouth, which is perfect for holding your favorite, fragrant flowers. Each handmade vase will have unique variations in its shape and coloring, and can be given as a tender gift, or kept as a romantic way to hold the flowers you’ve received. Made in Rhode Island.”
An artist from Rhode Island, once I knew how much heart was put into this vase I fell in love with it all over again.
The second item I got was this “Face” mug. I was looking for a gift to give my man. After looking around the site for awhile and looking through these ideas I finally decided on the face mug. He drinks coffee a lot, and thought he’d find the sense of humor in this mug.
Uncommon Goods is great for special occasion gifts whether for Graduation, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or Birthdays, these make for great gifts for the ones you love.
