Gift Ideas Gallore!
So I recently came across a site called Uncommon Goods, which has some really unique gift ideas, but if you're not in the market for a gift, they have home decor/fashion/culinary items and more for yourself. Why not?
As the Summer turns to Fall, holiday shopping season is not that far away. It's never too early to start thinking of ideas for the people on your shopping list. And if you don't celebrate Christmas, then consider this a great place to find an assortment of anniversary gifts and personalized gifts. Below is a little information about this company.
"Founded in 1999 and
headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, UncommonGoods is a privately-owned retailer that endeavors to feature unique jewelry, designer décor, tabletop items, and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment without harm to animals or people. We run all our operations out of the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal, where the lowest-paid seasonal worker starts at 50% above the minimum wage. We make it our mission to support and provide a platform for artists and designers; in fact, half of what we sell is made by hand. Most of the jewelry products, home décor and table top items we carry are created right here in the USA, and about one-third of our entire collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials. At the core of our company is a great respect for the integrity of the creative individual and the belief that it is our responsibility to use our business to impact the world in a positive way."
I was particularly interested in the gifts for book lovers, like the "Novel Teas," which combines two loves of mine: books and tea! Each tea bag has a quote from a famous novel. It can't get any better than that. They also have a wide assortment of bookends from cats to elephants, to demolition equipment, to bicycles, so you can find one that suits your likes and personal style. They have so many fun and unique gift ideas, I'd definitely check it out when making your holiday shopping lists!
And what makes this company even greater is their customer service, and that they give back to the community! First, UncommonGoods has been awarded for outstanding customer service every year since 2007. In 2015, they
achieved the BizRate Platinum Circle of Excellence award, their highest achievement level yet. Second, as an independently-owned business, they have the freedom to support causes they believe in and to impact the world in a positive way. With every purchase you make, they donate $1 to the non-profit of your choice. Since they started the Better to Give program 12 years ago, they’ve donated over $1Million to charities around the world!
