When you think about Valentines Day you are often faced with the usual pink or fluffy tack that lines many high street stores and you think ‘this is all just over commercialised rubbish isn’t it?’ WELL.. although I firmly believe in trying to live by your means and attempt a frugal lifestyle, i also believe in love. I believe that couples, especially those with children, do not spend enough quality time with each other expressing their emotions, or even having the time to express them. Valentines Day for me, is a gentle nudge to get back to basics and spend some time with your partner, just rekindling that spark that gets oh so very lost in our daily humdrum lives; and Uncommon Goods can help you do just that… with no tack in sight!
I have recently posted my own Valentines Gift Guide but when I found the Gift Guide collated by Uncommon Goods I was blown away at not just the romance and warmth but the originality and uniqueness of the products. Uncommon Goods pride themselves on having an exclusive assortment of products that meet the highest standards for uncommon design, sustainability, and doing good. Their ‘Uncommon Collection’ is where you will find these items on their site.
If you are like me and love anything with a little quirk and creativity then it is THE perfect place to find the perfect Gift this Valentines!
If you are feeling like really spoiling your special lady this Valentines then these handcrafted treats will definitely be a hit. There is a sumptuous collection of jewellery and beautiful handmade splendour to wow any lovely lady.
… and because every woman deserves to be told she is beautiful…
I am particularly fond of the magical ‘Frog Prince’ sculpture that made me smile instantly when it caught my eye; if you are into Fairy Tales then this is utter perfection.
In my own Gift Guide you can see a few ideas on how to create handmade edible gifts this year fro your Valentine, Uncommon Goods has some great ideas on this too including making your own Truffles and Fortune Cookies.
I am particularly attracted to these as they are things that can be done as a couple which is perfect if you are staying in for the night; why not have date night at home and make it extra special… and delicious!?
The Printable Fortune Cookie inserts are actually FREE to download on the Uncommon Goods site and I am really impressed that they have spectacular ideas like this for those of use that are trying to cut down costs but still keep the magic alive.
Also if you are thinking of popping that ultimate question then what better a way to do it than after a delectable hand cooked meal inside a handmade fortune cookie; with candlelight and wine obviously… we’ve got to set the mood here people!
If you are familiar with me as a person or follow me on Instagram you will know that I have a particular penchant for, yes all things quirky, but also a gift that can be personalised! Uncommon Goods has some great customisable gifts for all tastes and I have picked out my favourites for you…
I have featured Uncommon Goods before and they never cease to amaze me with the breadth and uniqueness of products they offer. I am also always impressed with their giving agenda; with every purchase made they donate $1 to an organisation of your choice. They call their campaign ‘Better To Give’ because… yes… it really IS better to give!
So… not only can you give the gift of true magical romance and beauty you can also make a difference.
They also have great, short notice shipping options for those of us that leave everything to the last minute (… totally not guilty… ahem…)
What are your plans this Valentines Day? Let us know if you like this awesome find of a site and if your other half adores the products as much as we do!
