Hello all! I’m pleased to be collaborating today with UncommonGoods on this week’s Home and Style Finds post. Founded in 1999 and headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, UncommonGoods is a privately-owned retailer with a focus on its social impact at work and in the world, featuring sustainable and handmade jewellery, homewares and unique gifts made by independent makers, for men, women and the home.
I get so much enjoyment looking for gifts for people so I spent one happy evening selecting some of my favourite items from the site whilst watching a film I’ve already forgotten (A boy meets girl film/bore). Here’s hoping this collection of home and style wares are a tad more memorable!
From left to right:
Do Good Cotton Hammock | This cozy hammock-for-two helps to support the people who make it—members of a small village of endangered Mlabri people in northern Thailand. Ever dreamt of having your hammock to hang in? I know I have.
Beehive | Designed in the UK by beekeeper and conservationist Norman Sellers, a beehive would make a great gift for the organised gardener in your life; you know, the one who’s planting bee-friendly bulbs in September for spring. I will be a Barbara Good type one day. One day.
Cinema Box | I’ve wanted a cinema box for so long now for our bedroom projector film nights. I especially like the shape of this one though, it would make a great addition to our bookshelf and is a quirky and fun gift for all ages.
Tote bag | A/W is here and this water-resistant tote bag is a must have for the seasons ahead. Made with water- and puncture-proof Cordura® fabric, sealed internal seams, and water-resistant sealing zippers it will be a great choice for Yorkshire dwellers.
Finally, this simple and delicate Morse Code Necklace created by Erin Bartels would make a stylish personalised gift for someone very special, without being too ‘I LOVE YOU ADRIAN’. I like subtle gifts like this. Not sure where I got Adrian from? Ahem.
