Unique Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Valentine’s Day is coming up in about a month, so I figured I’d share some unique Valentine’s Day gift ideas from a company I discovered recently: Uncommon GoodsThis is a sponsored post, but as always, all thoughts + opinions are mine + mine alone!

You know I’m all about green living, so I love that they strive to be good to the environment + their community–a lot of their products are made from upcycled products or help to promote sustainable living!

They work with artists to use sustainable/recyclable material whenever possible, and are also partnered with Better To Give, a program that allows customers to choose a partner for them to donate to with every order. I love that they support so many different artists/designers (there’s even a scholarship opportunity for undergrad art/design majors)!

I’ve always loved the thought of giving experiences instead of things. At Uncommon Goods, you get the best of both worlds–there are so many different options! It’s that time spent together making memories that really make the best gifts to me, so I wanted to highlight several different gift ideas that’ll give you the chance to do just that (along with some other cool finds)!

DIY Kits

Try making something new together! with the various food/drink-making kits! They have kits to make your own cheese (or dairy-free cheese), brew your own kombucha or beer, make your own hot sauce or wine! My personal favorite is the bubble tea kit, complete with metal straws so you don’t waste on plastic!

Cooking

If your loved one adores all things food and cooking-related, it’d be hard to pass up the kitchen gadgets (I can’t ever say no to kitchen items, even though I really probably should–I need a kitchen with ample counter space someday)! Being the music nerd that I am, I adore the music note measuring spoon set! 😛

Travel

Planning a trip together? Get a scratch-off map to remember all the places you’ve gone to with each other and never lose sight of all your chargers with this travel cord roll!

Outdoor Life

Love spending time outdoors? These adorable collapsible solar puff lights are going to be a gamechanger for your next backpacking/camping trip, and make “leaving no trace” easier with a pocket utensil set!

Exercise

One thing I’ve always thought would be cool in a significant other = built-in workout buddy! You can get a yoga mat (made from recycled wetsuits!) or bike lights if you like biking together!

If you’re looking to get a unique piece to inspire/cheer on that special someone, the selection of handmade and/or inspirational jewelry at Uncommon Goods is pretty hard to beat! <3 I love the Tiny Seeds necklace, the sterling Silver Wings bangle, and the Time To Be A Unicorn necklace! 😛

    One year I got my wife a special rainbow anniversary sundial (a cool clock that uses the sun to tell time) that sits on the windowsill indoors and makes rainbows in the room when the sun shines. I was able to have the guy who made it for us add a special date line that the time shadow follows on our special day each year, and she loved it! I don’t remember what it’s called, but you can find it online with a search. Very appropriate!

    1. Farrah

      I don’t have a significant other, but that’s such a great idea and a really sweet gift! :]

      Forreals! This could be absolutely terrible for my wallet, haha. I started browsing through to just pick out a couple things I liked but that ballooned into a billion things and now I’m trying to whittle it down. :[

    I adore uncommon goods. They have such unique and cool things and I always love looking through their website.

    The best gift I’ve ever received were probably tickets to Hamilton, so not really anything you can buy from a store, but I love giving and receiving fun gifts!

    1. Farrah

      Agreed! I love that they’re always adding new things too! :]

      That’s awesomeeee! I’ve been wanting to watch that, but haven’t had a chance to yet. Hopefully sometime this year… *-*
