Unearthing unique ideas to share with the travel-loving men in your life
Finding that perfect gift for hubby can be hard. I think I’ve exhausted every type of cufflink set and novelty golf gear I can find for Mr Globetrotter.
Heaven forbid I don’t want to be in trouble for buying the “wrong” electronics item again…. (though, to be fair, anything can beat the doorbell he bought me for my last birthday. Yes, I’m serious. We did need one).
An added challenge for us living in the UAE is pretty much all unique gifts need to be mail-ordered in too…. This means we only have a matter of weeks to get our Christmas shopping finished this year. Gulp!
Introducing Uncommon Goods?
Here to the rescue, I’ve discovered the treasure trove Uncommon Goods. Not only do they have a huge range of unique products for the travel and gadget lover (suits my Mr. Globetrotter down to the tee), but I also love the company’s philosophy where everything is about sustainability.
No, this isn’t just about “being green” – though eco-friendly and recycled products are important; the small businesses and artists they work with are encouraged to make their products in a socially and environmentally friendly manner, and there are certain products that they won’t sell on their platform.
Sustainability and fair treatment also carry over into their workplace. Oh, and did I mention at check out there’s also an option to donate to a not-for-profit cause – all a part of the giving spirit at this time of year, right?
