UncomonGoods is my go-to for unique and uncommon gifts.
I’ve been a huge fan of theirs for more than 10 years – and the recipients of any gifts I buy through them are always delighted. All of the items they sell are handmade, and they are dedicated to featuring products that contain recycled components and have not sold products containing leather, feathers or fur. Besides being a founding member of B Corporation (click to see how cool this organization is!), UncommonGoods even lets you choose a nonprofit at checkout for them to donate $1 to with every order. They have a great selection of personalized gifts as well (see here) or gifts for all of those baby showers you’ll be attending this season (here). And who wouldn’t be thrilled to receive any one of these keepsakes for celebrating a milestone or anniversary?
FTC Disclosure: I was provided with a complimentary bouquet of my choice from ProFlowers.com. The below opinions are my own. I have not been otherwise compensated for this post. My full Disclosure Policy is here.
Though Mother’s Day is about a month away still, now’s the time to plan ahead.
To that end, ProFlowers has you covered with a variety of beautiful bouquets for every pricepoint.
I love that you can choose the type of vase you get the flowers in – which means you can customize it for your recipient.
(I mean, how cool is this pretty teal-dipped vase above??) Many other online florists only offer the vase as part of the arrangement, and you’re stuck with what they’ve chosen. Major point in ProFlowers’ favor!
You can specify delivery date at no charge (not a range-the exact day itself, which is awesome!) to make sure your recipient will be available on the date of delivery. When the flowers arrive, they’re boxed up in their nifty box with the card/greeting inside. The larger flower heads are even carefully wrapped to ensure perfection upon arrival! There are not 1 but TWO packets of flower life extend powder in the box, as well as detailed instructions for caring for your bouquet. (Other online stores don’t include instructions – kind of a no-brainer, no?)
Once in water, the flowers have a 7-day freshness guarantee, and the two packets of powder allow you to really extend their life. Mine are still alive at 15 days out!
The big V-day happens to be Saturday this year, and it’s now a countdown to what to get, what to make, how to profess your undying love to the one true person in your life. Here are a couple ideas from my archives if you need something to make last-minute:
