We have a pretty awesome gig going. We get to review all types of fun toys and gadgets all year long. We do realize that for people who have real jobs… and real lives… they can’t spend everyday playing. Of course, the one time that everyone gets to be a kid and play is the holidays. If you are going to get some gifts, you might as well go with something fun, different, what some might call…uncommon.
Uncommon Goods, Because Uncommon Fun Is The Best Fun
Where do you find fun and uncommon gifts? At UncommonGoods. UcommonGoods is an awesome online store with the tag line “Creative Living. Mindful Giving.” Sounds good, so we decided to test it out. We had the fine folks at UncommonGoods send us over two toys that could make great gifts for kids and adults of all ages.

With UncommonGoods, The Giving Goes Well Beyond The Gift
There is no question that you can get some really neat gifts from UncommonGoods, but the appeal of UncommonGoods goes well beyond the physical products. Here is some information about the company –
“We make it our mission to support and provide a platform for artists and designers; in fact, half of what we sell is made by hand. Most of the products we carry are created right here in the USA, and about one-third of our entire collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials. “
UncommonGoods had a great program called Better To Give. For each product sold, they donate $1 to the charity of the buyer’s choosing. $1 may not sound like much, but they have now donated over $700,000 through the Better to Give program.
Simply put, if you are looking for a great place to buy uncommon and interesting gifts this year, from a socially responsible company, UncommonGoods.Com should be your first stop.
