Let’s face it – I think us ladies are kind of over a box of heart shaped chocolates right? Right! We want something that lasts past February 14th and reminds us of how much we are loved. So it might be worth leaving open a tab on the gifts for women page on the ol’ laptop for your partner to discover! Same could well be said for our male readers too – as there’s some awesome gifts for men on the site too!
What we particularly love about Uncommon Goods gifts is that there gifts also give back. Not only do they provide us with a fantastic range of products, but also a platform for emerging artists and designers to sell their goods, many of which are made by hand and use recycled/upcycled materials. Plus they pay their staff 50% more than the minimum wage and donate to various global charities. So you can really spread the love this year when you purchase your gift this Valentines day!
