Shopping with UncommonGoods

Today I am writing about UncommonGoods, an online gift shop that I’ve recently discovered.

Living here, the shopping is limited at best. Online shopping is pretty much the only way I can buy gifts for friends and family both here and at home.  Mine and Mark’s wedding anniversary is coming up so I’m looking for something for that!  I loved reading their Uncommon Anniversary Gift Guide for a spin on both the traditional and modern recommended gifts for anniversaries

Shopping at UncommonGoods.com

I always find shopping for men to be particularly hard.  I find that there are so many gimmicky gifts out there for men….what is it with the Moustache thing?  Do you know any men that would actually like a novelty moustache pillow or tie, I don’t!!  Phew, rant over!  Anyway, I don’t know what this says about me, or the men in my life, but I was particularly drawn to the huge array of different home brew kits they have.  Theres all different spirits, beers and wines available and they look SO nice!  There’s lots of foodie things on there too which I always think make a good gift for men!

There is also a lot of really beautiful jewellery on there, the handmade and personalised pieces are especially pretty, these are especially nice for special occasion gifts like milestone birthdays, bridesmaids, or anniversaries.

Why choose to shop at UncommonGoods.com

The reason why I like UncommonGoods is that they promote and support small artisan businesses and people.  They aren’t selling products from big companies mass producing countless numbers of the same gifts.

I love their ‘Better to Give’ Programme.  Every time you shop with UncommonGoods you can select a non-profit organisation to receive a $1 donation from them, they have already donated over 1 million dollars through this programme alone.

For me (selfishly), the best bit about UncommonGoods is that they actually ship worldwide, and I mean really worldwide!  I can’t tell you how few places ship to places like Seychelles, and that is super annoying!  So, extra brownie points for the worldwide shipping!!
