Uncommon Goods = Uncommon Awesome

This is sponsored content.

I’ve known about Uncommon Goods for quite some time, but was reintroduced to the store recently. I love the company as sustainability and positive impact both in and outside their company are part of their mission. We have a number of gift giving events coming up in the not-too-distant future, so I asked on Twitter what others would spend their money on at the site as well as rounding up a few of my favorites.

Garlic Storage House

Garlic House at Uncommon Goods

Uh, how adorable is this Garlic Storage House? Tanie pointed it out. It would look so cute on our kitchen counter!

Ellwood the Rainbow Unicorn Mug

Uncommon Goods Ellwood the Unicorn Coffee Mug

I mean, unicorns are a thing for us as LuLaRoe consultants anyway, so when Burgh Baby pointed this Ellwood the unicorn coffee mug out, Denise immediately had to have it. (There are other matching pieces which may make their way into our homes, too! I mean, ahem, hello. Great birthday gift, no?)

Taco Serving Kit & Storage Box

Uncommon Goods Taco Serving Kit and Storage Box

We have Taco Tuesday almost every Tuesday. And sometimes Thursday. And Friday. We really like tacos. And washing giant bowls when we put just a little bit of sliced tomato or onion or what have you feels like a waste of dish washer space. So I think this Taco Serving Kit & Storage Box is quite handy. Plus tacos.

Taco Booties

Uncommon Goods Taco Booties

And speaking of Taco Tuesday, if we had a wee-one among us, that child would wear Taco Booties to the table. I only wish they made them in my size. And they’re just one of the amazing baby gifts Uncommon Goods has to offer. I also adore the tortilla baby, which is very on theme with this whole taco thing.

Intersection of Love Art Print

Uncommon Goods Intersection of Love Art Print

I actually saw this at a hostess’ house earlier this month but I didn’t know it was from Uncommon Goods. This Intersection of Love Art Print makes my heart all swoony. I’m not sure it would look as cool with my maiden name, but I think this would make a lovely personalized wedding gift. I mean, look how cute.


I’ll be keeping Uncommon Goods on my shopping list when it comes to finding great gifts for those people I love.
