Thanks to Uncommon Goods for sponsoring this post and giveaway!
Here’s your chance to win a $50 gift certificate at Uncommon Goods for unique holiday gifts and stocking stuffers like these. Uncommon Goods is a Brooklyn-based retailer with a mission to support and provide a platform for artists and designers. Most of the products Uncommon Goods carries are created in the USA, and about one-third of its collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials, like this wallet made from recycled bike tubes:
Half of what Uncommon Goods sells is made by hand, and when I looked today that translated into 288 items. I like that Uncommon Goods carries a mix of handmade and manufactured items, all hand-selected for their cleverness and utility, like these Gummy Bear Lights in red, green, purple, pink and blue (which Elise is getting for Christmas, shh, don’t tell!)
With the holidays quickly approaching, Uncommon Goods is an especially great store for unique gifts and stocking stuffers. I am loving these teeny Peruvian Knit Gloves Ornaments to warm up your Christmas tree:
And the Kinetic Sand! This stuff is wild and I can’t wait for Elise to unwrap it on Christmas morning. The sand kind of sticks to itself thanks to a secret binding agent – check out this video to see it in action.
In my opinion, Uncommon Goods was the original DIY store. The company started in 1999, way before Etsy or Renegade, and I remember feeling inspired by the artists and designers inside the catalog.
What will you choose to give (or ahem, to keep) this holiday season with this $50 gift certificate to Uncommon Goods? See their Christmas Gift Ideas List.
