If you’re anything like me, the idea of buying a gift for that special someone or occasion in your life from a conveyor belt of mass produced items leaves your heart crumbling on the floor. In my book, nothing could say hey I love you…or you’re great! any less.
So when I discovered the lovely gift site UncommonGoods which seeks to tell the story behind every product they sell made lovingly by emerging designers or hand crafted by true artisans I just knew I had to shout it loud on the blog. Today, I’m going to give you a glimpse at just some of the gift delights you can snuffle out over there….be ready to say oooooooh, ahhhhhh, and never buy a mass produced gift ever again….
For the mack daddy
Yes, before we know it Father’s Day will be upon us and we will all be scratching around in despair finding gifts supposedly from our children, and then what the hell are we going to buy for our own father’s? Gah! Uncommon Goods have a fab collection of Father’s Day gifts and honestly I found it so hard to choose just one to show you here but I’m going to stick my head in the sand with this uber thoughtful and adorable What I Love About My Dad Book By Me.
It’s your birthdayyyyyyyy!
Birthdays – there’s no escaping them….just when you think you’re finished on the never ending cycle for the year then ta-dah! up pops another one. The pressure these days to find something totally unique for a birthday gift has never been greater so hurrah for Uncommon Goods who have taken the sweat out of this epic endeavour. I’m thinking a Birthstone Wishing Ball Capture where you can capture a single wish, accomplishment, or meditation every week throughout the year inside this beautiful work of art should see me right for another year of birthdays!
Something for the wine lover (read: me)

Let’s get personal baby
Sad fact: I have spent a disproportionate part of my life seeking out a doormat befitting of the quirkiness of the rest of my home. So when I saw this awesome personalised Amp Doormat I almost whooped for joy. Quite possibly the coolest personalised gift ever for the home love? Me thinks so. So if anyone would like to gift it to me, then yeah….you know where I am!
