May is a month of celebrations in our household. From now till the end of the month we have birthdays for three kids, my mother-in-law’s birthday, and our anniversary. It’s also a busy month with end-of-school activities and graduations. All of this can make it challenging to find time for gift shopping.
When Uncommon Goods approached me about helping them highlight some of their products, I thought I’d take a look and try them. This if a different type of post than my usual recipe or nutrition post, but don’t worry, there are plenty of gift ideas available at Uncommon Goods for the foodie in everyone.
Some of my favorite finds were the Hot and Cold Soapstone Serving Platter, Kabob Grilling Baskets, and the Sari Bag. The Hot and Cold Soapstone Serving Platter caught my eye because, as a dietitian, I hate to see cold food get warm or hot food get cold while they’re being served. It’s a safety thing as well as a culinary issue. This soapstone platter can be put in the freezer or oven prior to serving. When the food is ready, just serve it on the prepared platter. I’m excited to see if it really does help keep cold food cold or hot food hot.
One of my frustrations when grilling kebabs is when I try to flip the kebabs and the food rotates on the skewer, making it difficult to cook the food evenly. These Kebab Grilling Baskets should help take care of that problem. My husband thinks these will be great for grilling this summer. If your husband likes to grill, Uncommon Goods has many other gift ideas too.
The Sari bag that I found is creative and beautiful, made from recycled saris. The colors are gorgeous, and what girl wouldn’t like a new bag now and then?
What I like most about Uncommon Goods is that they seek to do business in a sustainable way. They work with many artists and small businesses, and a number of their products contain recycled materials, like the Sari bag. Each product page also has a bit of information about the artist or manufacturer of the product. In addition, they donate $1 of each order to a non-profit group, selected by you, the consumer, at check out. Click here for more gift ideas at Uncommon Goods.
