Fabulous Finds. . . Uncommon Goods Review and Giveaway!

I absolutely LOVE finding unique, fun items for my home, my kids, or to use as gifts. And for a long time now, one of my favorite places to find awesome, funky, hard-to-find stuff like this has been Uncommon Goods. "Find anything but ordinary". Completely cool gifts, seriously, just browsing this store is so much fun! It can be really difficult to find gift ideas for men that they'll actually like, but this shop has a whole bunch!

Naturally, since I love the shop I was thrilled to be able to review some of their products. This could be a VERY long post if I talked about all the awesome things found on their website, they have such an amazing variety of products. So I'll just focus on the things I was able to review. I was 100% impressed by everything I received!

I've had my eye on these since I first saw them in a magazine. . . Paper pots! Such a stylish and mod-looking way to house your tissues, SO much better than the ordinary little cardboard box. These babies are made of plastic (they seriously look like glass, but my kids can't break it, hooray!), and come in a bunch of fun, glossy colors as well as white and matte black. I put mine in my front entryway bathroom and it completely updated that little room! I love it!

Okay, I didn't review this one, but I thought it was just too cool. . . the Salsabol, with unique grooved sides to help you control how much salsa or guac you want on your chips. I want one of these! Just an example of a cool and useful product you'll find in this shop!

Besides items for your kitchen and home, Uncommon Goods has a really adorable kids and babies section. I picked out Lucy's Socks by Trumpette for my baby Brooke and they are the cutest baby socks I've seen yet! I want to get these as a baby gift for every baby girl I know, they are sooooo precious! And they stay on her feet, so they get extra bonus points!

I can think of a lot of girls who'd die to have these in their kitchen. . . Russian Doll Measuring Cups! Yep, measuring cups that nest inside each other and are actually cute enough to sit out on your counter or shelf. At only $13 and oh so adorable, these would make a perfect gift!

And I've got some great news. . . Uncommon Goods has offered to give one of my readers a Paper Pot, in any color of your choice!!! You will love it just as much as I do!

  47. A few things that I liked are:
    The Copper Wine Journal, The Shower Squid, and the Index Cutting Boards.

    I do have the measuring cup nesting dolls and they're really cute. Since they're decorative too, I can just leave them out and just reach for them whenever I need them and not dig around in drawers.

    Thank you,
