I was not compensated for this post. I received products from Uncommon Goods in exchange for this review; all opinions are entirely my own.
As many of you already know, Bryan and I are once again in the thick of house hunting. The saving grace on days of low inventory and constant Trulia refreshing, is imagining a new life behind new walls. And being able to decorate those walls in new rooms with all kinds of fun things! Because really, when you think about it, the biggest perk of moving is reinventing your living space and creating gallery walls, right?
Anyway, this of course, made me think about the kinds of gifts I’d really WANT this Valentine’s Day. Practical. Good for a home. Unique. Cute. Filled with llamas. You know, the things all girls dream of.
Do you know about my love of Uncommon Goods? This company offers a wide assortment of handmade, recycled, and organic products. They believe in sustainable business practices. They give back. Promote a healthy work environment. They even have an expert gift finder (meet Sunny the elephant!), to help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
They also boast a wide variety of home décor—everything from doormats and incredible hanging shelves to gorgeous vases and customizable blankets, pillows, and art. Of COURSE I got the llama mat, because look at this thing.
I also got this zipper pouch to match.
And CANDLES! The Rescued Wine Pet Candle is lovingly made in small batches in California, by a husband and wife team who’ve dedicated their lives to animal rescue. Always a cause I can get behind. The Mad Tea Party candle smells divine. Check out all of their unique candles!
Have a coffee lover in your life? There’s a gift for that! Like this Bourbon-infused coffee.
It’s hard to pick a favorite from the box of goodies I was sent, but I’m very excited about moving so that I can hang these gorgeous and minimalist shelves. I didn’t have the chance to photograph them, because I’m actually going to keep them in the box until they are ready to make their debut, but aren’t they adorable?
If you’re still stuck on what to get your significant other this year, check out the assortment of Valentine’s Day gifts—perfect for anyone on your list.
