The sun is shining today and wedding season is well and truly upon us, so, how do you make your wedding gift stand out from the crowd and a one to remember among the piles of toasters and towel bails?!
If its your wedding what about gifts for your bridesmaids and something unusual for the groomsmen?
Wanting something out of the ordinary? Check out this fabulous and unique store UncommonGoods!
One thing I always look for when giving gifts is something that I know the recipient won’t already have. I fell in love with this Wishing Ball as soon as I saw it, a hand blown ball of glass which contains 52 tiny slips of paper to add your wishes too each week. At the end of the first year of marriage you can read back and see how many of those wishes came true.
Finding something out of the ordinary is such a hard project but there is one gift better than the next via UncommonGoods independent sellers. One thing I have found that would make your offering stand out is a wedding gift that is personalised, something that will mean more to the couple than something they would go out and buy themselves. Personalised gifts mean you have put thought into what you are giving, that in itself means more than anything.
I have spent hours looking through this amazing website. UncommonGoods is based in the USA and is committed to offering you creative and exciting goods, working with suppliers – from artists to small manufacturers – who make their products in a more socially and environmentally responsible manner. It is also good to know that since their founding they have not sold products containing leather, feathers or fur and are committed to selling products that do no harm to people or animals.
UncommonGoods also created the Better to Give Program in 2001, which allows you to select a non-profit organization to receive a $1 donation from us at checkout. They have donated over $1,000,000 since creating this program.
YAY for an Eco and life friendly company who give back – why aren’t more companies following this ethos?!
