UncommonGoods Review and Giveaway

**I was not paid for this review.  All opinions are my own**

I was contacted by UncommonGoods and asked to choose something from their Gifts For Women section here to review.  The choice was tough.  There were things I had never seen before!  I narrowed it down to a few  items and finally chose the Glass Birthstone Necklace.  My birthday is in July, so that's the one I chose.  It came in a cute little box and inside the necklace was in a smaller ziplock pouch with the clasp part closed outside of the box.  GENIOUS!!  That made the necklace not tangle while being shipped to me!  I like my necklace, it's something that I probably will not find anywhere else, therefore it's unique which I think is great.
         

They have SO MANY different items to choose from on their site.  They have them broken down into different categories which help you find what you are looking for faster.  They have a section for Gifts for Wife which has a lot of different items like necklaces, socks, books and jewelry holders which you can check out here.  Along with that they have a section which is a little different as it's called Gifts for Girlfriend.  You can see the stuff they have there by clicking here.  Now there is overlap on these items, which is to be expected, but there are some other fun things on that list as well.

One of the things that I think is pretty darn cool about Uncommon Goods is the fact that they donate $1 of every purchase to your choice of one of the not-for-profit organizations that they are partnered with.  They've been doing this for 15 years and have donated over $1 million dollars to these charities around the world!  That's pretty awesome!  A lot of companies ask YOU if YOU want to donate extra money toward organizations, but this company just does it out of their profit.  Awesome.  Here are the Not-For-Profits that they donate to: RAINN, American Forests, Women for Women International and Reach Out & Read.

Even though there are beyond plenty of items to choose from on their site, they also have a section labeled "Uncommon Knowledge", which fits in well with their name.  There you will find a lot of information that you never knew.....and never realized you never knew.  I like that kind of stuff.

I know that I will be browsing through their site as Christmas approaches.  Some people on my list are hard to buy for because basically........they already have everything.....so I thought!  This site gives me a brand new wide variety of items to choose for the people who have everything.  I'm excited!!  OK, just thinking about Christmas approaching faster then I am ready for makes me think of cold weather, beanies, hot toddies, gloves and scarves!  Which reminds me.......UncommonGoods has a page for scarves too!!  Oh happy day......time to go check them out as well.  In need of a new winter scarf?  Look no further then here!

All in all, I really like their site and the items they have to offer.  I look forward to browsing their site and receiving their catalog in the mail (that I just signed up for!).  Let me know what you find and love!





Now onto the fun part!  Who wants to win a $25 gift certificate for UncommonGoods??  How cool is that?  They are offering one lucky reader a jump start on their first order!  Best of luck to you all!!  This drawing will be open for 1 week, so get your entries in!!
