A few years ago I was given four different gifts from Uncommon Goods for my birthday from four different people. A few things about this are remarkable. First, can you remember one gift your got for your birthday three years ago, let alone four? I remember every one: a set of nesting doll measuring cups, a spice kit, a salts from around the world set, and nesting bowls. I’ve used the spices and salts, re-filled the containers, and I still have the bowls and measuring cups, I use them all the time.
That’s the thing with Uncommon Goods, they are gifts people don’t forget. Unique, memorable, thoughtful, the things people keep for years. The people at Uncommon Goods and I have teamed up to give you a $75 dollar gift card, to make you look like a gift giving genius. I’ve picked out a few of my favorites to share, but it’s up to you to find the perfect gift for your person. Or just get something for yourself, you deserve it.
I pretty much want everything in the Bar & Wine section.
Owl Mugs, SO CUTE!
