UncommonGoods Offers An Uncommonly Good Selection For Everyone On Your Shopping List

Chocolate Soap bars from UncommonGoods

Whether you are shopping for the holidays, birthdays, host and hostess gifts, or that person on your list that has everything, you can find interesting and creative twists on items that turn the regular into UncommonGoods! Rarely have I perused a catalogue or website that offered as complete a selection of unique and fun versions of useful, well-made items.

In the past, when I've written gift selections for Here We Are, products from this B Corporation have often made the list. You can take a look at this year's holiday gifts by clicking this link. It's important to know where you are spending your money… B Corps are companies that meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency; including beating standard wage practices, conscientious environmental applications, and giving back to the community by donating to various charities. Pretty darn good, and uncommon! (Okay, I had to go there, but you get the point.)

Shopping for the men in your life? Click here to see multitude of options that accommodate your need to find niche gifts for that picky golfer, the world traveler, a music nut, and just about any other area of interest you can think of. Plus, the prices are very affordable in ALL categories, a large portion of the products are made in the USA, and many are handmade by skilled artisans… Bonus: You don't have to worry if you pick the wrong gift because there is a very generous return policy, i.e. forever!

Now for the ladies… I selected the following three items because they could be a great collective gift, or work as individual gifts; to see the rest of the women's gift selection click here.

Box of chocolate soapThe picture at the top shows the set of 4 scrumptious chocolate soap bars that smell good enough to eat! This is a perfect gift for that chocoholic or someone who can't have sweets but would love a chocolate treat.

The handmade soap comes packaged in a lovely gift box, and each scented bar has its own list of 98% natural ingredients. This soap feels great on the skin, exudes a lovely scent in the shower (I tested the chocolate "Raspberry Drizzle"), and left my skin smooth and silky. IDEA: Buy the box and split up the set to use as gift toppers or in goodie bags. For more on these soaps and the artisan, click here.

If you know someone who works on a computer, this is the gift for them… The Comfort Heart Comfort Heart Hot Cold Pack 
Hot Cold Pack is exactly what achy shoulders need. Pretty fabric filled with 100% all natural ingredients - sized just right to keep in a desk drawer - smells amazing and really works to heat any tense area. (I only tested it hot, using 1.25 minutes in the microwave, and it worked for 45 minutes; it felt fabulous on my neck and shoulders.) Check out this gift that says "love" at a very reasonable price; and while it might not seem like an exciting gift, after one use, the recipient will love you back for this!


Prism candle holder on UncommonGoodsEveryone knows a candle lover, but I'll bet they don't have a Prism Light Candle Holder in their collection. This doesn't look like much out of the package (a simple clear cylinder) but once a lighted candle is placed inside (tea lights only), the prism effect displays a beautiful array of dancing light that is quite mesmerizing. See more here, including a video, on this different accent piece that would beautifully light up any table scape or buffet. 

These are a few gift suggestions that I thought would give you a good idea on common items turned uncommonly good for all your gift giving needs now and in the future. The selection at UncommonGoods of unique, fun, useful, thoughtful, and personalized gifts will help you finish that shopping list in no time!
