Every Christmas, I’m always on the lookout for incredible and unusual gifts for my loved ones. I search the internet, scour the high street and I’ll be honest, I’m often left uninspired. Never one to resort to something generic or a gift voucher, this year I took my search further – and was delighted to come across UncommonGoods.

UncommonGoods not only have some amazing, innovative gift options suitable for even the hardest to buy for person, but they are approaching business in a different way. They put sustainability and the environment at the heart of their business, which as a life long charity sector worker is so important to me. They sell handmade, recycled and organic products and have policies for their staff including health insurance and fair wages.

They even created the Better to Give Programme, which allows the purchaser to select a non-profit organisation to receive a $1 donation from us at checkout!

I’ve spent some time on the UncommonGoods website, and I’ve already managed to find loads of gifts that will be making an appearance under the tree this year. I’ve bookmarked some incredible necklaces, scarves and homeware gifts that I’m going to be buying for my best friends and my extremely picky husband is going to get an amazing cheeseboard from their extensive Christmas gift collection.

I’m also a massive fan of something personalised for my family so I’ll be selecting an amazing customised picture for my Mum to open on Christmas day. And I’ll definitely be telling everyone about how ethical their gifts are this year!

I’m always stuck for innovative, thoughtful gift ideas, and being able to combine an awesome gift with my own personal values is pretty awesome. I’d love to know what you think about the UncommonGoods collection and their sustainable business ethos!
