Valentine's gift ideas for the foodie in your life. A way to show someone you love, that you respect them for who they are, and celebrate their passions!
Valentine's gift ideas always involve the mass-produced, normal average chocolates, stuffed animals, roses, etc. This year I am going to do things differently and having come upon a site that offers great gift ideas for any occasion has opened up my gift giving world in a most creative way. Thanks to Uncommon Goods.
I wanted to share a little bit about this company Uncommon Goods. We talk about being Green in our ways but this company strives to do more as they move into the future, from being Sustainable not only in goods but also in the way they treat their employees and customers, with dignity and respect. They are dedicated to offering creative and unique merchandise that is made of recycled materials and made in a socially and environmentally friendly manner. Not hurting people and any animal is of utmost importance, and working with artists and small manufacturers with these beliefs puts out a product that not only says environmentally friendly but exudes that in a very creative way. Uncommon Goods has a catalog, but they try not to print too many and only use FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified forests (which harvest only in sustainable practices) for paper. They also use recycled paper. They are a founding member of B Corporation, an organization built to help their customers understand better how their purchases affect the world socially and environmentally, and to belong your company would have to meet criteria from living wage, impact on the environment, to giving back to the community. The founder Dave Bolotsky is dedicated to building this company with these beliefs at the forefront and I believe he has a recipe for great success, after all, you get what you give. If I would sum up Uncommon Goods in one word I would say Sustainability, and I absolutely appreciate a company that puts this kind of effort, time, and economics, in a very tough, competitive market.

These are but a few items from a plethora of amazing and creative products that are offered and ever increasing at Uncommon Goods. One of the things that really stayed with me was that when you went to each unique item, there was a story of the product, its materials, the artist, and demographics. This made it very personal to me, like being invited in and left me with a harmonious feeling of warmth. This company is closing the boundaries between culture, and global vastness. Bringing us handmade artisan goods that today still stand the test of times.

When I am not cooking, I enjoy playing musical instruments, singing, writing. I have learned over the years to live in gratitude and enjoy the moment.
GiGi Eats says
So basically, I should just gift myself with these things 😉 hahaha! THAT SALT BLOCK THOUGH!!
Hi GiGi, I truly believe in self giving. I think it is the quintessential element to achieving balance. For a lot of us giving is second nature, and receiving always seems strange, but all giving and no receiving, ends up with energy bankruptcy. So get that saltr block. We have one and it is such an amazing way to cook. I love the outdoors and so being asked to fire up the BBQ and heating up the salt block always takes not much thought. Thank you for your comment!
Happy Sunday to you!
Kathy @ Beyond the Chicken Coop says
I think I love them all! But if I had to choose just one, it would be the herb jars!
Hi Kathy, Nicoletta and I are with you on the mason herb jars. They are beautiful to look at and having fresh herbs is wonderful. I love having them hanging in the window and the light shining through reflecting those colors, absolutely beautiful!
Have to update our wish lists. Thanks for the comment!
karrie @ Tasty Ever After says
I love all these gifts and would gladly accept one or all of them! I also love Uncommon Goods and get their catalog in the mail. They have lots of cool stuff 🙂
Hi Karrie, this is a great company, love their principals, and practices. I like that each item has a story and you can meet the maker, it makes it more heart felt and homey, and inviting. It is Chinese New years, we should go shopping for a selfie gift, lol. Have a great week Karrie always a pleasure hearing from you!
Til the next time,
