if you are a blogger/blog frequenter and you don't live under a rock, i'm guessing you have heard of Uncommon Goods. but if not, you should do yourself a favor and check them out. Uncommon Goods is an online marketplace that's an awesome place to find a gift for anyone you can think of, even those super-hard-to-buy-for people in your life. the items are unique and clever (and often hilarious), with a wide range of price points and lots of variety. know anyone getting ready to graduate? check out some awesome grad gifts here. i also really love these green gifts and these home decor items; you can find them and more on the Uncommon Goods website. here are just a few favorites i came across while browsing their site.
tube wringer | come in, go away doormat | man candles | hand embroidered state pillows | micro green kits
i recently acquired these gorgeous solar-powered string lights from Uncommon Goods, and i am a huge fan. i had never used anything solar-powered before and was unsure of how well they'd work, but after just a couple of hours of being in the sun, they were fully lit. i strung them on a tree in our backyard for a soft, romantic glow. the colors are gorgeous! definitely highly recommended.
i also got these wildflower seed bombs, which are inspired by a really great concept called "guerilla gardening." basically, they're designed to pretty up a run-down urban space. i haven't used them yet, but i plan on throwing a couple on the unused/(ugly) part of our backyard and also finding a couple spots in Detroit that could use some sprucing up. they sprout wildflowers native to the Midwest region (how cool is that?)
i definitely plan on using Uncommon Goods for future gift-buying. hope you find something you like!
