Uncommongoods: Gifts with A Difference


When it comes to buying gifts for people I like to try and find something a bit different and 
unique. I recently came across US company Uncommon Goods.

Uncommongoods was founded in 1999 and is headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, UncommonGoods is a privately-owned retailer that has strong ethos of sustainability. 
They offer a wide range of environmentally friendly, handmade, recycled and organic products.  
Most of the jewelry products, home décor and table top items that they stock are created in the USA. 

When it comes to gifts I like things that brighten the home I really love the 
look of these bookends as the range are so unique that they will be a great talking point 
in your home. 



There is also wide selection of wall art that can be the focus of any room in your home. 
You can have a look at their selection here


If bookends and wall art aren't your thing than why not visit Uncommongoods to find more home/garden decorative pieces.



Another range of unusual pieces you can find are their selection of furniture which you can find here. The tables and chairs are definitely ones that I have never come across before.
I love the quirky shapes and designs. 


 When you click onto the uncommongoods website, just select the ship to option to be UK and currency to be GBP and pricing converts from USD.
I would just point out though that the items are shipped directly from USA and therefore shipping costs can be a little more than you would normally expect.
