Hipcycle.Com...Giveaway & Exclusive Discount!

I am forever on the hunt for creative gifts.  I like to be able to give people something they do not already have a stack of at home.  When you pair that creative, thoughtful factor with something eco-friendly I am all in!  When I saw what the company Hipcycle was doing to upcycle I knew I had a new "go-to" site for creative gifting.   Have you heard of them?  Here is a bit about Hipcycle and what they are doing....

Our goal here at Hipcycle is to offer upcycled products that are as attractive, durable, and otherwise as desirable as traditional equivalent products (if not more so). We also strive to offer products that are priced about the same as regular high-quality products. We don’t feel that just because something is a “green” product that is means you have to make a choice between helping the environment and getting what you want.
While we are a for-profit company, we do feel very strongly about creating a social enterprise that harnesses the power of business to help make a better world. If we can help divert waste from landfills or be a source of inspiration for fun and creative ways to re-use that old thing-a-ma-jig that has been sitting in your attic for years, well then, that is a win all around.

Pretty cool, right?  Check out some of their favorite products for Mother's Day....





Each one of these lovely blossoms is made from a glass bottle that has been cut and scored like petals, melted in a kiln, then fitted with a cork and an old coat hanger so that it may be placed in the ground. Designed for garden display or artfully arranged in an upcycled vase.






Handmade in Vietnam, these glass and paper vases come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Created using a variety of upcycled papers, no two are alike.





If you’re old enough to share a drink with mom, you’re old enough to appreciate the bottle. Each vase is made from a reclaimed Grey Goose bottle which has been cut and sanded by hand. Also available in Ketel One, Jack Daniels, Don Julio, and your drink of choice.





Mom always wrapped your P,B,& J in aluminum foil. Offset her foil addiction with this shiny silver vase.



Made of four upcycled glass bottle tops mounted on a glass pane, these glass vases are sealed to prevent leakage.

In addition to these upcycled takes on floral presentations, Hipcycle offers a wide range of upcycled picture frames, perfect for framing family photos for mom.

How clever is this??  I love just about everything on the website and not only do I want to gift it, I want it for me!  Check out the www.hipcycle.com for a full range of fun upcycled products!

Hipcycle.com is awesome. I can't get over all the stuff they have made all out of recycled items. It's just amazing. I found several cool items but one of my favorites was the Traffic Light Bird Feeder/ Bird Bath because I love watching the birds and this would be a great piece for our backyard. Thanks for sharing such a fantastic site review and giveaway with all of us~!
