We’ll just go ahead and get the disclaimer out of the way first: I received these products from Uncommon Goods to review, however, all opinions are strictly my own. I’m going to gush a little here, and it’s for real.
If you’ve been around here for a while, you might be familiar with my annual birthday post. It’s similar to my Friday Favorites, but isn’t restricted to only crafty or tasty things. Over the years, there are a couple of retailers who’ve come up repeatedly, only because I really like their stuff. One of those is Uncommon Goods. They noticed, and invited me to review one of their products. After some extensive browsing, I made a selection that I couldn’t be happier with.
I’ve talked a lot about my daughter’s wedding lately, but this Sunday I’ll be celebrating 23 years of marriage to that sweet guy that pops up here once in a while and leaves comments that make me say “Aww, that’s sweet!” When I was searching for just the right product to review, Uncommon Goods’ collection of anniversary gifts, found here, was a natural fit. I landed on this set of personalized glasses, in part because we keep joking about the “after party” we’re going to have after the kids leave for their honeymoon. They’re also a great replacement for the toasting glasses from our wedding that were broken years ago.
These glasses arrived much quicker than I expected for a personalized item. They were also very well packaged.
That little paper on top was actually an explanation of who the crafter is, where she’s from and a bit about her process. I love that! I didn’t know much about Uncommon Goods as a company until they contacted me, but I like what I’ve learned. They are big supporters of artists and designers, with half the products they sell made by hand. They also donate $1 of each purchase to a non-profit of the customer’s choice, to the tune of $700,000 so far. That’s a company I can get behind.
I had high expectations for these glasses, and they did not disappoint. They’re much sturdier and heavier than I thought they’d be, and the artwork is beautiful. I especially loved that they could be personalized with our initials and wedding date.
The pilsner glass has a nice, heavy bottom and holds about 20 ounces of beer.
The wine glass has some extra frosting on the bottom in addition to the design, which is a nice touch.
Uncommon Goods has a huge selection of gifts that can be personalized, as shown here, which I spent hours looking through. I feel like I made a great choice with these though. I could definitely see giving them as a wedding or shower gift. Don’t they just look romantic?
These will be displayed in the window for the next month until my husband and I can share a “We Survived Our Daughter’s Wedding” drink together. Thank you Uncommon Goods!
