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

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

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.

A Threadless Shirt for Firefighters & Families

When I first learned about Threadless, their classic shirt “The Day the Fire Brigade Went On Strike” was already sold out. The next time they reprinted it, we had just made a large purchase and I didn’t have a lot of extra money to throw around. I signed up to receive word the next time it was reprinted so that I would be the first in line for the most adorable print on a shirt made for firefighters, the people that love them and the children that want to be them.

That day was today.

I tell you this now because I have purchased all of the sizes that we need. For awhile. So, we’re good. You can now purchase the shirt.

The Shirt of All Shirts

Some tips about purchasing from Threadless. This particular shirt is printed on a Threadless brand t-shirt for adults and hoodies. I find that Threadless shirts, while they don’t shrink, fit true-to-size if not a little small. I order myself a large to accompany my chest. (What?) FireDad still wears a medium. The children sizes are currently sold out on Threadless t-shirts (except in size 8 ) but are also available on an American Apparel shirt. American Apparel, after some research, is known to shrink one full size after washing and drying. You may want to size up. Consider this your warning. If you do size up and it doesn’t fit them yet, at least they’ll grow into it as opposed to washing it and having it be too small. Right?

Honestly? I’d go buy this right now if you’re interested. Why? This shirt sells out fast. As I said, the second time it was reprinted, I couldn’t purchase that week and they were gone before my next payday. In fact, the creator of this shirt said that they were sold so quickly that he didn’t even get to buy one himself. That’s crazy. Buy one now.

And, yes, I plan on having a full FireFamily photo in our matching shirts. All of us. I’m that cheesy.

[I received nothing to make this post. In fact, I spent far, far too much to be able to write this post first in order to make sure I got all sizes in my cart and purchased before alerting the public. I wrote this post simply because I want my readers, who include firefighters and their families, to know of a great shirt that will likely only be available for a short time. I always Blog with Integrity. And man, I love t-shirts. And firefighters. And elephants.]
