Uncommon gifts from Uncommon Goods

Welcome to the biggest shopping day of the year. Also known as the day I shop at small businesses and online, but typically don't step foot in a big retailer. This year will be no different.

I'm not the greatest gift giver, but I am a great admirer of unique items, and they can be found by the boatload at Uncommon Goods. I've shopped there in the past, and they were kind enough to send me a gift card to purchase some items and post about them here.

One of the things I like best about this company is their commitment to featuring items made from recycled components like these luggage tags made out of recycled bike parts. I paired it with minimalist bike lights for a solid Christmas gift under $30. Gifts for men tend to be hard for me to come up with, so this was a home run.
They have great stuff  for women too - like this super cute tea mug that holds the tea bag on the side and candles that smell like Jane Eyre. Lots of unique stuff.
Lots of unisex gifts, too of course. Like are you looking for a gift for a dog lover? I bought this for myself, which fits well with the one for you one for me style I typically shop in for Christmas. Everyone loves their dogs, and only disgusting people do not pick up after them but no one likes carrying smelly poop bags around. Turdlebag to the rescue. It not only holds the bags for easy disbursement, it also carries them after you tie them up, and it clips to the leash. Win win all around. Perfect for a dog owner.
If you're looking for a unique gift, something thoughtful and fitting, check out Uncommon Goods. They're also a B Corp, which is always a bonus in my buying.

Happy shopping!


  1. I love LOVE Uncommon Goods and featured some of those items in my "Unique Gift Guide" post. It's definitely a perfect place for men gifts for sure!

  2. every time I see the word bookman it reminds me of this ridiculous statue on the Texas Tech campus and the editorial I wrote blasting financial aid... hilariously titled, "Did Bookmam Get his Money on Time?" Thanks for the laugh.

  3. Uncommon Good has such great stuff. My parents get their catalog and I always love looking through it.

  4. I think it's so funny that you posted this on Friday. While my mom and I were out & about shopping I was flipping through her stack of catalogs and came across one for Uncommon Goods! I'm waiting until tomorrow, but I TOTALLY plan on ordering quite a few goodies from there for Xmas presents!

  5. When I posted something about the men in my life being difficult to buy for, a couple of bloggers recommended Uncommon Goods. I found a gift for my dad made out of recycled bike chains too!

  6. Penny chewed up KC's goggles and he wanted to go to the pool on Friday so he thought it would be a great idea to go to Dicks beforehand.. which is connected to a mall.. the only mall that has Victoria Secret, Bath & Body Works, Old Navy etc. It was insane and I never wish to do it again.
    that Turdlebag is brilliant and i am totally buying that.
