Mother's Day with Uncommon Goods + $50 Giveaway!


Happy Wednesday, everyone! 

Phew… time is flying by this spring, and I realized that Mother’s Day is coming up very shortly!  I always knew my mom was awesome.  But in my adulthood, I’ve started to truly realize just how amazing she really is, and how wonderful, and even necessary to have this special day to honor her.   (This page has some great ideas ;)

Recently I’ve been talking with the lovely people at Uncommon Goods, and stealing looks at their website for Mother’s Day gift inspiration.  If you’re unfamiliar with this company- not only do they offer unique and handcrafted products, but their entire manifesto is one of facilitating positive change in the world.  They are all about supporting artists, and the general well-being of people, animals, and the environment.

Did you know they hold a series of panels in Brooklyn to help small businesses?  Topics include things like how to network, implementing green practices, and using social media tools to grow your business.   I actually went to one last month, and it was awesome!!  They also do things like design challenges to help people get their work out there, and support a non-profit with every purchase. 


Either way, their site is chock-full of stunning offerings for Mother’s Day.  It’s a really amazing place to find a unique gift for her special day!  Here are some things that I’d like to buy for my mom J



ug salt

This salt test-tube set is pretty cool!!  There are several varieties of salt from all over the world, and they all have different uses. 

ug tea


My mom also loves tea- just like I do!  These are also in test tubes, and are a ton of different varieties.

ug birds


I adore this necklace.  You can even choose the number of “chicks!”

ug gratitude

This statement is so true, and something my mom would be totally into.

ug bag


I don’t know why I think my mom would like this bag.  I think she has a similar one.  The print just reminds me of an adventurous soul… it makes me happy and makes me think of her J




So time for the next part…

WIN A $50 CREDIT TO UNCOMMON GOODS!!

As part of this wonderful collaboration, Uncommon Goods is giving away a $50 credit to their store!!  So you could also get something super unique for your mother on her special day.  

I’m so excited to be able to offer someone this wonderful prize!  Good luck!!!

  2. What refreshingly new ideas for mother's day gifts! I especially love the salt and tea testers. Wish I could attend one of those meetings about networking your work (could so use the help!) - maybe you could post your notes? Pretty please? ;)

  4. I l-o-v-e Uncommon Goods! I haven't had a chance to purchase anything from them yet, but I browse their store all the time. My dad is a salt fanatic (like me) and I've thought about getting him that salt kit! I also love the tea one. That purse is PERFECT for an adventurer! What fab finds!

    I love giving people gifts!
