Gifting 101: Plan way ahead of time and stress less. Whether it’s that wonderful time of the year or just a special occasion for that special someone, gifting should be an enjoyable and memorable experience. I love gift items with more than just the aesthetic. I go for personality and a really good backstory, too. So the person receiving my gift knows that care and thought went into it. The value becomes so much more, and granted; you’ll make someone very, very happy.

Now imagine a company that does exactly that when it comes to products they sell? Well, imagine no more, because one does exist. Uncommon Goods.
With a mission to support and provide a platform for artists and designers – Uncommon Goods, a privately-owned retailer in Brooklyn, New York – is bringing us handmade products and gift-worthy items that were created in harmony with the environment without harm to animals or people.

The majority of items are made in the USA and one-third of the collection comprised of recycled or upcycled materials. This is not just online shopping. It is shopping with good intentions and making a difference. And through Uncommon Goods, you get a chance to be a part of that.
Now on to picking my favorite items, which after browsing the website, I could tell I have many! But for now, I’m going to share this list I put together (from a very long list I started with)!
- Birth Month Flower Necklace
