UncommonGoods is good

Thursday, May 22, 2014

I'm thinking kicking off a long Memorial Day weekend with a giveaway is a great idea. Don't you?

Keep reading, it's a good one.

When I started my job at Hyland, creator of OnBase this past December I quickly realized that I needed some desk flair to fit in with my colleagues who had years to collect various trinkets. But I didn't want just anything, I wanted something living, like a plant.

Enter Brooklyn, NY based UncommonGoods, where the number of remarkably unique gift items are countless. It's their mission to support and provide a platform for artists and designers and you can tell they are succeeding by their eclectic collection of inventory.

I quickly landed on the sedum terrarium bottle and the marimo moss ball light bulb terrarium because want doesn't scream "Hey, I'm friendly and know a lot about communications!" Like a terrarium on your desk?



I've been growing my terrariums for some time now and I LOVE them. They are super easy to maintain thanks to my trusty water spray-bottle and add a little green to my workspace.

As someone who just got married I'm thinking an UncommonGoods wedding gift or anniversary gift would be awesome. An old colleague of mine actually used to rock this "f bomb" paperweight on her desk and I'm thinking with my mouth it may have to be my next purchase.

Lucky for you, thanks to my friends from UncommonGoods who showed me some love, I get to turn around and give some gift love back to you.

  18. ooooh it's so hard to decide what to spend $50 on, but it would have to be one of the nature things. either the hot air balloon hummingbird feeder, or the aquarifarm, where you can have a fish, and plants on top!! I followed them on FB, but i don't tweet, it's too smart for me! lol your terrariums are awesome btw!!
