Oh my god guys!!! Today, I was browsing the whole morning with my sister the windows, looking for a gift for our anniversary with my boyfriend and we didn’t find anything cool!! You know, my boyfriend and I we are like for eight years together so you can imagine that we have given everything to each other as a gift, from clothes to perfumes, cameras, blah blah and this time I just wanted to buy something for him that it would be more uncommon, something that matches to his interests, or something related to his hobbies. So, I just came home, sat on the chair and opened my laptop. I came up with an idea, to find an online store that sells cool things on the internet so maybe I could find something special for him.
The first step was to write down on a paper the interests of my boyfriend: music, interior design and fashion (men accessories).
So, now I know what I am looking for :D
The second step, was to find a cool page, that offers unique pieces in prices that I could afford. A friend of mine told be about uncommongoods.com, that it is not just an online store. Initially, On uncommongoods, you can find a variety of products and you can also search by category, as for example, gifts for the valentine’s day, jewelry or even anniversary gifts, like I am searching right now :) The most interesting and significant part of this online store though, is that all products are made in a socially and enviromentally responsible manner, they contain recycled components and the company has not sold any products containing leather, feathers or fur, as their goal is to sell no product that harms humans or animals. I got really excited when I read this info, cause I love eco-friendly products and when companies show social and environmental responsibility, to my mind they deserve a chance. The most important though, is that the company supports artists to small manufacturers, to make their products in a more socially and environmentally responsible manner and they treat each individual inside and outside of the company with dignity and respect, by offering health insurance to all their full-time (and most part-time) employees and providing a living wage. For all these reasons, as I am very selective when I am presenting and online store on my blog, I chose this one in order to find a cool gift for my bf.
Second step accomplished, we have the site :))
The third step was to browse for gifts by intertest and I came across these cool gifts for him!
- OptionThe first option is this cool watch. I fell in love with this amazing piece, cause my bf love watches and I didn’t find a special one in the market, but this watch is really unique cause it is made from natural maples, from recycled sources and the maker plants a new tree for every watch produced. How cool is that? I just loved it :D
- Option The second option is this skateboard stool. I chose this one, cause my bf used to do skateboarding until an accident he had, so this one is a cool gift for him as he is obsessed skateboards but also it would fit perfectly at his home. The creator ollects shattered skateboards from skateshops and skateparks in the US and Canada and turns both deck and truck into a hybrid, high-quality piece of furniture.
Last but not least is this amazing piece of art. The artist represents prominent cities from coast to coast by drawing an object that he felt typified a city or state and pulled his attention in each place. I loved this one cause he loves music and this is a piece of art with an amazing background and a great decoration piece for his bedroom!
And now, I need your help, which one of these should I choose for him?
Can’t wait to hear your opinions!
’til next timee..
