Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Valentine’s Day is coming up quickly, and if you are anything like me, finding gifts for your significant other is a challenge! My husband is so hard to shop for! So I was very excited when the company, Uncommon Goods, asked if I would like to review some products. I checked out the site and immediately agreed – this was exactly the kind of thing I had been looking for! A company that features unique designs and handcrafted gifts. And not just for my husband, but for my in-laws, mom, dad, the list goes on.
This fabulous, socially aware and privately-owned retailer is based out of Brooklyn, just a few miles from where I live! Their lowest paid seasonal worker starts at 50% above the minimum wage, and half of what they sell is made by hand. Most products are created here in the USA and 1/3 are made from recycled or upcycled materials. So cool!
The hubby and I are both big wine drinkers so I picked out some wine items to give Michael for Valentine’s Day. I mean, it doesn’t hurt if I get to use them too, right? I decided to go with the a wine preserver bottle and some wine pearls. Click here for some more great Valentine’s Day ideas for husbands, and here for ideas for wives.
Now let’s be honest, when we open a bottle of wine we don’t often end up with leftovers, but some weeknights I open a bottle and have a glass or two when Michael is out or doesn’t want any. Hence this great bottle that helps keep it fresh up to a week after opening. I didn’t get to try it with red yet, but definitely excited about that as red tends to go bad so quickly. Plus you get the added benefit of decanting it.
My crazy, fun Italian in-laws love their wine as well (it’s one of the reasons we get along so well). They also like really cold white wine. This usually involves adding ice cubes to make it cold enough. Well these wonderful little wine pearls solve the problem, keeping your white cold without watering it down. Just store them in the freezer and add to your wine as needed. My mother-in-law and father-in-law are definitely getting a few packages of these babies for some upcoming birthdays!
So glad I got the opportunity to try this company out! You can find personalized gifts here, and gifts for all the women in your life here as well. Be sure to give them a shot the next time you are wondering what to get someone and let me know what you think!
