I don’t know about you guys, but winter really starts to drag for me this time of year. Constant winter wind and impending ice/snow storms has me dreaming of green grass, blooming trees, and above-freezing weather.
What perks me up? Well, alcohol. Kidding. But peppering in a few new goodies here and there definitely helps brighten up those dreary winter days. I’ve been browsing the UncommonGoods site recently, an online marketplace showcasing the interesting + unique works of both emerging and veteran designers. I have discovered quite a few pieces for my wish list– like this functional + modern wine flight set and this dainty rough cut ruby ring. I love that UncommonGoods not only provides a spotlight for smaller artists, but they work hard to be a sustainable company with a small environmental footprint (for example, their packaging is environmentally friendly and they do not carry items that involve hurting animals; ie, no fur, feathers, leather, or pearls).
I’ve curated a few of my favorite items below; click to shop ’em directly. Bonus: these are fun + off-beat gifts that the boyfriend/girlfriend will love, just in time for Valentine’s!

You can go personalized at UncommonGoods, also. (I’m a fan of this print and these cute throws.) While you can find a ton of girly stuff, there is legit wares the dudes in your life will love– from whiskey stones to a super manly grooming set, there is plenty to choose from for your boyfriend, dad, or husband. Happy shopping!
How are you guys spending Valentine’s? I’m seeing Deadpool with the boyfriend and The Walking Dead is back on Sunday– double action bonus. I know that doesn’t sound like the most traditionally romantic V-Day, but I’m more than excited about these activities.
