Creative Gifting With Uncommon Goods


With the holiday season officially just around the corner, I can't help thinking about the great gift hunt of 2015. You know, the search for the perfect gift for everyone on your list (and a thing or two for you too - shopping is hard work, you deserve it!) 

Shortly before we took off for Japan, Uncommon Goods contacted me, asking if I wanted to do a little gift shopping for myself.

Having heard about the Brooklyn-based online shop many times over the years, but never having shopped there, I was pretty delighted to discover that not only did they ship to Canada (and heaps of other international destinations), but also carried a great selection of handmade goods from makers alongside other creative gift options and DIY kits. Plus a third of their offerings incorporate upcycled or recycled materials and $1 from your purchase will be donated to your choice of one of their not-for-profit partners. Read more about that program here.

Unique gifts, feel-good business practices, delivery to my door AND no need to slog through page after page of dismal Etsy listings (or the mall) to find a gem. You know what I mean! Love it when someone else has already narrowed down the options! 

I easily spent hours browsing and dreaming... paper teddies and carving kits, pretty jewels and catapults, wine glasses and claymation... I could go on all day! 

What's nice about Uncommon Goods, is that there's really something for everyone - even those notoriously difficult to buy for people in your life. If you don't get too sucked into shopping for yourself, that is! 


Find lovely gift options for women by clicking here. I really love the Solar Photography kit, Parchment Blossom Earrings (you'll never guess they're made of veggies!) and Calligraphy Starter set.


You can shop for all sorts of unique gifts for men by clicking here (they're always the hardest to buy for, aren't they?) I think the DIY Smartphone Projector, Sake Making Kit or an interesting watch would make wonderful gifts for your favourite men.


There are even personalized gifts which are perfect for celebrating big (or little) milestones. Or, you know, just for cuddling! See them all here.

Go on, browse a little, you know you want to!

Uncommon Goods let me do a little shopping in exchange for this post however all opinions are my own.
