Uncommon Goods | The Home of Unique and Ethically Sourced Gifts

So who are Uncommon Goods? Uncommon Goods were founded in 1999 and headquartered in Brooklyn, New York. They are a privately owned retailer who supply unique gifts which have been sourced ethically in harmony with the environment, making sure not to harm animals or humans. I absolutely love this ethos and giving these values as a gift to someone I love, just makes that gift that little bit more special. Upon browsing the website, you can find out the story behind each and every item and also the person/people who designed and created it. Half of the items sold on Uncommon Goods are made by hand and the website is an excellent platform for these talented creators. One third of the entire collection of items on the website are also made from recycled and upcycled materials too. These stats just keep getting better!

Here’s my pick of gifts I think would make lovely gifts for a special lady in your life – it was hard to pick just a few!

I’m writing about these necklaces because 1. they are gorgeous and 2. I’m hoping someone will buy me one! These Mama Bear necklaces were designed by Britta Ambauen based on her own mother’s protective nature over her children. Britta sees the mama bear as a symbol for love and protection due to the fierce shielding of their cubs. The necklaces are made from sterling silver and bronze and are handmade from recycled materials. They are also exclusive to Uncommon Goods. Find out more here.

Hydration Tracking Water Bottle – £8.25

I love anything that involves fitness and health combined with technology. This bottle makes drinking more water a much more exciting task and I just love how beautiful it is in its simplicity. The dots on the lid tally how many bottles of water you have consumed in a day. This quick and simple technology eliminates the need for complicated apps and trackers. The bottle was designed by Richard and Anthony Joseph. Find out more here.

Unicorn & Rainbow Mismatched Earrings – £16.50

Unicorn Earrings

What would this blog be without the mention of unicorns somewhere? I adore these earrings designed by Christine Schmidt. Gilded in 22 karat gold and set on hypoallergenic posts, these mismatched earrings make excellent gifts for anyone who has caught the unicorn bug or a gift to yourself. The earrings also come in the cutest packaging – a glass vial. To find out more, click here.

These wine scented lip tints were created by Michelle Bucaro. The lip shimmers don’t just smell like wine, they also contain beneficial ingredients found in the beverage’s red grapes – the skin, seeds, and pulp offer natural benefits: Resveratrol from the skin of red grapes, grape pulp, and grape seed oil all contain antioxidants and the oil is rich in fatty acids and vitamins, to help keep your lips smooth and soft.

Anything to do with space is simply cool in my books. Everything to do with the universe just fascinates me and I love anything space fashion related at the moment. This scarf really jumped out at me from the Uncommon Goods website as Autumn is on its way and I just love the contrast of the planet’s colours on the black wool. What a gorgeous item! This scarf was designed by Ali Bennaim and Ximena Chouza from New York and is made from 100% wool. To find out more, click here.
