Lovely gift ideas from Uncommon Goods

At this time of the year (3 months to Christmas, guys!) I am always looking for great gift ideas. With a slew of autumn and winter birthdays in our family, plus the Christmas season, I'm always on the lookout for interesting, fun gift ideas.  I was asked by Uncommon Goods if I'd like to select a couple of gifts from their range to review and after looking at their range and reading a little more about them I was delighted to say 'yes, please'.

I selected two items - a Venn diagram serving dish (the combination of geeky and culinary hit so many of my buttons!) and a home plate welcome mat.  The dish is so lovely I think I'll keep it for myself - it'll be great for entertaining; the home plate mat I have an inkling will be happily received by a baseball obsessive I happen to know...


Parcels are always very well received in our household.


The dish is great - really solid and expensive feeling, and I love the Venn diagram feel.  I think for a dip with crisps and crudités, or three kinds of veggies at a Sunday lunch it would be great!


Fry approves too!


The homeplate mat is fantastic - really thick and well made, and would be the perfect welcome to a baseball fanatic's home.  It's also fully cat approved (v important!).



Thank you to Uncommon Goods for providing two items for review - I was very impressed with the quality of the items, and the ease with which I could have them delivered to the UK from the US.  I think their goals, to provide great, interesting gifts alongside their mission to support and provide a platform for artists and designers, are worthwhile and a great reason to consider them when making a purchase.  I also love their blog - full of fun facts, interesting insights and glimpses of the goings on at the company.







Disclaimer: As mentioned, I was gifted these items for review.  All opinions are my own (with a little help from the kitty cats).

Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
