The Mum In Me Wish List!

Although based in the USA, UncommonGoods do ship a high number of products to the UK so us Brits don't have to miss out on such amazing and unique products! I love a company that supports charities and what I love about UncommonGoods is the fact that they donate a portion of each order to your choice of non-profit organizations: American Forests, Women for Women International, City Harvest, and the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN).

UncommonGoods is a privately-owned retailer that endeavors to feature unique designs and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment and without harm to animals or people, founded in 1999 and headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, they run all their operations out of the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal, including their warehouse where the lowest-paid seasonal worker starts at 50% above the minimum wage.

They make it their mission to support and provide a platform for artists and designers; in fact, half of what they sell is made by hand. Most of the products they carry are created in the USA, and about one-third of their entire collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials. At the core of their company is a great respect for the integrity of the creative individual and the belief that it is their responsibility to use their business to impact the world in a positive way.

With all that in mind, I thought I would show you a few of my favourite pieces from their website, although I'm sure if I was a millionaire I'd buy at least one of everything! The items are just beautiful!

Custom beach heart necklace, A handmade exclusive; made from sterling silver, resin and sand. Honor the shores that hold a special place in your heart with Holly Daniels Christensen's evocative pendant.

This bronze, sculpted figurine bracelet celebrates your unbreakable familial bond by linking your choice of up to three children, each piece is individually forged, soldered, cast and cold-connected by metalsmiths John and Linda Whitney in Florida. Bracelets are available with your choice of 1, 2 or 3 children in any combination of boys and girls.

This Mother & Daughter Letter Book Set contains a nostalgic set of 40 cards that are meant to be sent, shared and treasured until the very last envelope is sealed. Once completed, cards find their way back into the secret pockets of the book. Rich with sentiment, each personalized book is meaningful way to honor your bond, and be passed down from generation to generation as an heirloom from the heart.

Each of the soaps in this set are made from pure, pronounceable ingredients that soothe and satisfy your skin, a blend of olive, coconut, palm kernel, cocoa butter, shea butter, sunflower and refined sweet almond oils, along with everyone's favorite treat: chocolate. Cocoa powder and fragrance oils are added to create four mouthwatering formulas: Amber Chocolate, Chocolate Bar, Fudge Brownie and Raspberry Drizzle.
The soaps come in a presentation box perfect for gifting (or for hoarding all for yourself). Handmade in Monroe, Georgia.
