We’re coming up to the time of year when I spend a lot of time (and money!) searching for birthday gifts for family members – we have so many birthdays in September and October! I always struggle to think of things to buy, especially for the parents and grandparents, so when Uncommon Goods got in touch I was excited to have a look through their website.
The site is full of creative and quirky gift ideas for men, women, and kids of all ages. Not only are the gifts unique, Uncommon Goods are committed to sourcing handmade, recycled and organic products that do no harm to people or animals. Since founding the company they haven’t sold products containing leather, feathers or fur. I love that all of the gifts are handmade, and the product details tell you about the creator.
You can search the website by various categories including men, women, kids, home and art. There are also some great gifts for bridesmaids, lovely presents for baby showers, and some unique gifts for anniversaries.
Here are some of my favourite gifts I found…
Make a Wish Chocolate Bars
A cookie covered in layers of chocolate with a candle on top?! Yes please! This is a great idea to put in the post if you’re not seeing your loved one on their special day.
Dawn Redwood Bonsai Forest
A great gift idea for a green-fingered relative, this bonsai forest would be a great addition to an office space. For every bonsai forest bought $5 will be donated to American Forests.
Grandparent Grandchild Activity Set
Such a good idea for a present for grandparents from the kids. Each gets a colour coded deck that they have to match up to complete fun and adventurous activities together. A lovely way to have fun and create memories.
Birthstone Definition Necklace
These handmade birthstone necklaces are beautiful and explain the meaning of each stone. A perfect, thoughtful gift for a mum or grandmother.
Driftwood iPhone Charging Dock
These smartphone docks are handcrafted from driftwood gathered from the beaches of Maine, making each one completely unique. Great for a tech-loving relative.
There’s definitely lots of inspiration here for birthday and Christmas presents for those hard to buy for relatives. You can also feel good in the knowledge that anything you buy is environmentally friendly.
