Finish Your Holiday Shopping with an Uncommon Goods Giveaway

I keep seeing people on Facebook bragging about being done with their Christmas shopping. I guess it’s not really bragging when there are fewer than 20 days to go, but still, it feels like bragging when I’ve bought all of three presents. From the same site. For the same person.

We’re not huge on Christmas gifts, but still, it’s clear I need to get going on my list. And one of my favorite go-to places for fun gifts for just about everyone is Uncommon Goods.

This is a site full of unique, handmade and upcycled products, and through the years I’ve bought gifts for everyone from my husband (wooden six pack holder) to my brother (bowl made out of an old record), my sister-in-law (noodle bowls) and my daughter (wooden blocks with baby animals on them) there.

Founded in 1999 in Brooklyn, New York, the company aims to do good by its workers, charities and the planet. Most of the products it sells are made in America; about half are handmade and one-third used a recycled or upcycled component.

A dollar from every purchase goes to support charities like RAINN, American Forests, Women for Women International and City Harvest. It even lets site visitors vote on some of the products that are carried by the company, which is lots of fun.

It’s a great place to find gifts you won’t see everywhere else, and they have some great gift guides for everyone from your mom to people who love things made by hand and that person who has everything. So much great stuff. I’m thinking hard about that bird feeder for my mother-in-law.

I’m giving you a chance to round out your holiday shopping with a $50 gift certificate from Uncommon Goods. All you have to do is enter through the Rafflecopter by the end of the day Friday, Dec. 13. It will choose a winner at random.

I’d love to know what your favorite holiday gift is that you’ve ever received. I think mine was probably my Kitchen-Aid mixer (though I do have to share it with my husband).

Thanks for visiting and good luck!

  2. My all-time favorite was a giant stuffed hippo my sister made me when I was about 6. I slept with that thing on my bed for almost 20 years until it literally disintegrated.

  3. I had been talking to my husband all the time about how I was saving up for a camcorder so I could make YouTube videos, etc. I wasn’t trying to hint or anything 🙂 I was quite surprised when I opened up his Christmas present to find this item I had been longing to own. Now I need to get around to making videos….

  4. When I was about 4, I got a doll that looked like a real new born baby. It was my favorite doll ever.
