Uncommon Goods is THE go-to for unique, beautifully designed gifts – just in time for Valentine’s Day!
Oh do I love Uncommon Goods (remember the post I did on them a while back?). It’s basically my one-stop shop for any gift challenge I have at-hand. They have a vast selection of well-designed, unique gifts in pretty much every category, and I can always count on finding something in my price range and that will be perfect for the recipient.
I was delighted when they asked me to put together a Valentine’s themed gift guide; the hardest part was narrowing it down for this post!
I decided to keep the price point to $50 or less, and organized the gifts into four categories – let’s take a look (all images courtesy of Uncommon Goods)!
Galentines (It’s never a bad idea to show a good friend a little love, right?)
This charming box of tea bags comes from France and contains (5) each of English Breakfast, Earl Grey and White Berry teas. I feel like we all have that friend who loves her tea, and this would be the perfect little gift!
We also all have that friend who is a hardcore chocoholic. This treat comes on a vintage spoon stamped with a sweet message that’s revealed with the chocolate melts. I love that this is an “edible” gift, but that the spoon stays a keepsake.
The gardener in me loves this gift so much – especially since you don’t need a green thumb (or even dirt!). Just water and a sunny spot, and your friend can grow her own pansies, zinnias, chamomile or English daisies. The on-trend mason jar is reusable, and the flowers are all edible. Such a thoughtful gift!
I received these years ago and they remain one of my very favorite gifts! These clever socks solve the biggest problem around winter pedicures – that is, freezing feet as you go from the salon to your car! Just slip these on before you get polished and your feet will stay dry and toasty warm.
Kiddos (Since February means lots of indoor time for many of us, these gifts will keep little hands busy!)
I was a big fort builder growing up so the kid in me loved this idea! This set of six unique characters bites, grabs, clips, and ties blankets and sheets to help kids create their own cozy hideaways. The set comes with eight “creatures”, coloring pages and instructions.
I was also a big origami fan so I had to include this set. I love it because it’s perfect for beginners, using basic folds and resulting in a perfect creature every time. And the set comes with 24 sheets (with two different color options for each creature), so restless hands won’t get idle any time soon!
Who says s’mores are just for summer? This kit takes that classic snack next-level, with marshmallows that you can color with edible paint prior to the toasting and squishing. Marshmallows and chocolate are dairy-free and vegan so everyone can enjoy!
I’m a sucker for anything vintage, and this personalized children’s book – filled with vintage-inspired illustrations – is super charming. Each page contains your child’s name and a cute animal pun (“owl always love you”). A perfect Valentine’s gift for a special little one.
Guys (They’re the hardest to shop for, amiright?)
Cheese is always a good idea. This clever kit comes with everything you need (except the milk!) to make 10 batches of Italian cheese, including mozzarella, ricotta, mascarpone and ricotta salata.
These unique, beautiful glasses speak to my inner bourbon lover and design geek. They’re etched with an intricate city map that curves around the sides, interspersed with street names and coordinates. Love these!
Truffles and Valentine’s Day are a little cliched – unless you’re giving someone THESE truffles (and by “someone” I mean ME). Clair Marin fills Belgian chocolate truffles with raw honey (and honey whiskey) from her own bees. Need I say more?
Such a great selection, right? Uncommon Goods has been kind enough to give me TWO $50 gift certificates to award to two lucky readers! Just comment below, sharing what your “go-to” Valentine’s Day gift is (be sure to include your e-mail address if it’s not already linked to your comment)! The contest will run till 5:00 p.m. EST; the winner will be chosen at random and announced on Wednesday, February 5th. Please note that the gift certificates will only work within the United States.
And Uncommon Goods is not only a company that sells pretty things. They are committed to keeping the independent artist in mind, and only allow unique and quality products in their selection. Each product has a design story and is often made by the designer using sustainable and eco-friendly practices. You can learn more here.
