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).
