As we finally land in the prospering spring season where flowers bloom and days get warmer, there’s hope in the air- not only for new life and exciting educational achievements but for wedding plans that are often set for the summer months ahead.
Oh, how I love weddings! Is there any event more beautiful? I think of all the weddings I have attended through the years, all the weddings I was honored to be in as bridesmaid, and the many weddings I was asked to write a personalized song to perform- and my eyes water at the thought of those memories. Each one so magical, so profound. Every ceremony was unique in the couple’s expression of love.
Witnessing the mark of such an extraordinary commitment leaves me breathless.
Do you know someone who is currently creating their wedding plans? Maybe YOU are?
If so, I have the site for YOU!
I was thrilled to be introduced to this incredible company, uncommongoods.com, offering beautiful handmade products, focused on supporting talented new designers and their unique creations. I love their mission and philosophy:
“We know that there’s a story behind every product. It’s that of an emerging designer just introducing her work to the world; artisans working collaboratively in a low-income country, or a seasoned artist crafting each of his pieces by hand. With your help, we’re building a community of passionate people who love our products and connect with the stories behind them. We’re growing not only our artist family but also a strong following of customers who celebrate artists and delight in surrounding themselves with creative design.”
What’s not to love about a business that helps talented creative artists sell their unique products all around the world?
Uncommongoods not only sells handmade, recycled, organic products, but it also offers you an option to donate one dollar off each purchase, to any non-profit organization you choose. They have donated over $1,000,000 since they created the “Better To Give Program”. It’s obvious to me, that their business is founded on the values and integrity I admire and support. I’m betting you will agree.
If you are in the throes of wedding plans or know someone who is, there are some perfect gifts the Bride can buy for her Bridesmaids. I personally love this necklace.
“Good friends are like stars-you don’t always see them, but you know they are always there.”
Isn’t that beautiful?
And if I were to do it all again, I would buy my bridesmaids these sweet earrings to wear on the big day…
If you are looking for a wedding gift for a soon-to-be couple, I just love the creative customized products they have for the future Mr. and Mrs.! I think a wedding gift should be unique, and uncommongoods is the perfect place to find them. For example, just look at these custom-made champagne flutes. Aren’t they precious?
Going to a Bridal Shower and need a gift? I think these would be a wonderful bridal shower present for the Mr. and Mrs. I adore these.
And for those of you celebrating Wedding Anniversaries, there are so many wedding anniversary gifts to choose from too! I never know what to get my husband, so I’m thrilled to find these…
And my favorite? (Wink Wink)
I was so impressed with the products at uncommongoods, and knowing my purchases will support independent artists, makes it even more worthwhile to me. I’m guessing you would agree. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate a new couple, than to buy them something so different from the main stream commercial market. Out of all the gifts we received for our wedding day almost 17 years ago, it’s the presents that are unique and personal that I cherish most to this day.
So if you or someone you know has upcoming wedding plans, I really believe you can find the perfect gifts at uncommongoods.com. If you aren’t in need of wedding gifts, there are so many other beautiful items available on this site too. I’m looking at some special
Mother’s Day gifts for both my mom and mother-in-law. I’m thinking these creative originals are a wonderful gift for many celebrations of loved ones all year round. Go check out all the products they offer and you’ll see why I’m sharing this extraordinary online store with you today.
This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are surely my own! I’m honored to support a business that believes in the value of independent artists and offers sustainable goods. We need more of them in this world!
