UncommonGoods Review & Giveaway!


Are you looking for a unique gift for that one person who is hard to buy for?  If so, look no further!  UncommonGoods is an online marketplace offering creatively designed, high-quality merchandise at affordable prices.

What is so unique about Uncommon Goods?

They present shoppers with an array of special features that make shopping an entertaining, convenient, and uncommon experience. These features include:

Featured Artist: UncommonGoods highlights the stories of their artists and designers throughout their website.

Handmade Goods: Look for the blue hand icon throughout the website to find handmade goods.

Uncommon Knowledge: UncommonGoods posts surprisingly uncommon information and facts related to certain product categories or featured items on their site.

Commitment to the Environment: UncommonGoods prints their catalogs on recycled paper and all their merchandise is produced without harm to animals.

Better to Give Program: They donate a portion of each order to your choice of non-profit organizations.

I had the opportunity to receive three very unique gifts to review

{Wine for Two - $20}
This unique little piece is handmade from a retired French or American Oak wine barrel stave.  It can be a nice centerpiece at a dinner for two or great to display.  The wood is unique looking and I think it would make a nice gift.

{Recycled Wine Bottle Platters - $20}
These platters are handmade from 100% recycled glass and take over 8 hours to create.  They can be used for cheese, candles, candy, fruits, nuts, and more.  I am going to use mine to display candles.  They really have some of the best wine gifts!
{Fondue for Two - $20}
This cute set is great for the three of us to enjoy fondue...I'm thinking chocolate and fruit! 

My Thoughts:  I think UncommonGoods is a great website for that unusual and unique gift!  Whether you are shopping for gifts for wine enthusiasts or unusual gifts for women, they have a lot to offer.  I already have my eye on a couple Christmas gifts for family. 

Shipping was fast and everything was packaged tightly and came in good condition.
