I am feeling pretty lucky today because I get to share a really fun and creative site with you...Uncommon Goods. Have you heard of Uncommon Goods? It is a site I could spend hours one (really...hours!) browsing all the great items for everyone on your shopping list. If you are looking for thoughtful and truly unique gifts, you should head directly to Uncommon Goods. Whether it be for baby showers, bridal shower, anniversaries, birthdays or wedding gifts, Uncommon Goods has you covered To be honest though, when I am looking I spend only a quarter of the time looking at things for others. The other times I am looking for me. I know, I know...shameful but once you start browsing the site you will see why!
I was lucky enough to have the chance to choose two items to review here on Reviewed by Mom and it took me a staggering amount of time for my to choose because I pretty much wanted everything on the website. Let's just say my shopping cart there is full! In any case I finally chose this....
Family Vase: Family is the heart of any home, and this sweet vase symbolizes the love and loyalty shared between parents and children, brothers and sisters. Hand painted by artist Beth Mueller, this charming ceramic milk bottle vase is accented with a simple home and heart and the word "family" for an effect that is touching and timeless. Handmade in Vermont.
Recycled Wine Bottle Platter: Made from 100 percent recycled glass, these wine bottle-shaped platters will provide a lovely backdrop to the cheese, crackers, fruits or vegetables you serve at your next wine tasting party. Each piece undergoes an 8-hour process to emerge as a one-of-a-kind platter. These striking platters also shed new light on candles, give spoons a rest and make for an interesting butter dish. Choose from chardonnay or bordeaux. Spreader included. Made in India and China.
First, let's talk about the family vase. It is adorable. It is not a huge piece but it is large enough for a small bouquet or a large flower. It is simple and perfect for a nightstand, dresser or side table. I love it because it is just plain sweet and it would make a lovely gift for anyone on your list. I can think of at least half a dozen people I would like to give this to but I will have to order them because I can't part with this one...it is too darling!
Now for the platter. I chose the brown color and it will look great in our new kitchen. It is the perfect size for small snacks like cheese and crackers. It is also a great larger spoon rest. It is definitely one of a kind and the fact that it is recycled from real wine bottles makes me love it even more. This would make a super shower or house warming gift.
I am serious when I say that when you visit Uncommon Goods you will be blown away by the huge selection for everyone on your list. I could post about 100 pictures here but I will narrow it down to two and let you browse on your own! Here are the next two Uncommon Goods pieces I will be gifting myself...
