We’ve loved UncommonGoods for a long time. Probably as long as they’ve been established (in 1999). UncommonGoods.com is a unique online store that offers truly unique gift ideas that range from beautiful to fun, quirky and light-hearted. Never a boring gift idea in their catalog pages… We also love that UncommonGoods is an independent business that supports independent artists and creators. Plus, many of their gift items are made from recycled or up-cycled materials.
