Great gift ideas from Uncommon Goods!

Gift Goodies from Uncommon Goods!

*This is a sponsored post for which I received compensation, but (as always) opinions are my own!

I have been a big fan of Uncommon Goods for several years now...I love the fact that the company carries goods that are frequently handcrafted, environmentally responsible, and just so darn cool! (I mean, they have a whole selection of gifts for geeks...which are in abundance here at Brandywine. You should check them out!)

But what's near and dear to my heart is the fact that they are also a charitable organization...and as someone who threw away a career to help those less fortunate....well, you can read more about that here.

Uncommon Goods has so many great products--something for everyone, really! Here are a few of my favorites:

*These state and regional dish towels are so much fun! I'd like one for every place I've ever lived.
*This cinema light box would be so cool to have for a wedding or to keep for messages like "happy birthday" or "congratulations." 
*Uncommon Goods has many choices for scarves. As a former English teacher, the literary scarves are a perfect choice!
*Electric light blocks would be so much fun to play with! If I had a small child...maybe my thirty-year-old?
*I KNOW my thirty-year-old would love this pistachio peeps sure do love pistachios!
*And my baby girl (now 26!) would have loved this fairy kit. She was always into arts & crafts projects.
*As someone who spent her formative years on the Great Lakes, I would love this topography map for my new lake house. Which I am still waiting for. DL, where is my lake house?
*I absolutely love this slouchy hat! It can get cold here in NC (contrary to popular belief) and a hat can be your greatest ally. This one is so stylish!
*Here's something from Uncommon Goods I already have...the recycled glass tree globes. I have gratitude and one other (I think motherhood) and I love that they are made in Canada!!

So if you're still looking for Christmas gift ideas, you can start by checking out their website for gifts for everyone...including the women in your life, your mom, or, if you're like me, those lovable geeks.

Happy shopping!

I like buying thoughtful gifts rather than buying just to buy. So, I just ordered a California dish towel and a UC Berkeley towel. I haven't decided who will get which - our son & his wife are Cal graduates as is our daughter's boyfriend. And we all live in California.

Thanks for the link.

Happy Christmas - you'll be on break soon!

Good Sunday Morning Kirby. I love uncommon goods. I have gotten several gifts for peeps this year from them. I love the uniqueness and that some things are gifts that give back. Have a great rest of the weekend and great start to the new week.

I agree, it's a fun shopping experience there. I might need to get those light up giant legos.

This reminds me that I meant to order my mother a gardening seat thing I saw in the catalog...whoops!

I used to order from them often at Christmas, stocked people up on funny t shirts.
