An Uncommon Mother’s Day

Did you know that Mother’s Day is right around the corner? It snuck up on me, too! It is Sunday, May 10 this year. Besides my own lovely mother, I have my sister and grandmother to celebrate, not to mention all my friends who are amazing mothers as well. So when Uncommon Goods asked me if I’d like to look through their choices for Mother’s Day gifts, I jumped at the chance! Uncommon Goods is known for featuring artists and handmade goods, and for their commitment to the environment. According to their website, their products are made without harming animals, and they have a number of items made from recycled materials. You can look through some of their Mother’s Day Gifts here. And here’s a few items I wanted to highlight — all of which would make great gifts! IMG_2357This beautiful Slate Cheese Board comes in red or black ($29) and makes such a pretty platter for a fruit and cheese plate! It comes with soapstone chalk, which wipes off easily. According to the website: “Created by Brooklynites (and self-described foodies) Sean Tice and Kristy Hadeka, they source their gorgeous pieces of natural slate from Kristy’s third-generation family quarry in upstate New York.” So cool! IMG_2362The board comes with a natural burlap bag to store it in, plus cork pads so the slate won’t scratch furniture. I happen to love anything that’s personalized, as most women who live in the South do, so when I saw these State Dish Towels ($20), I immediately wanted one for Alabama (my bestie Dominika gave me a New Jersey one last year as a housewarming gift!). IMG_2353I love the detail of all the different regions, the Yellowhammer bird — they even have Vulcan on the towel! IMG_2360Uncommon Goods also sells awesome Country Dish Towels for a handful of countries, too. Finally, if you see me out and about, you will likely see me with this new water bottle! I know most of us are trying to drink more water, and this handy fruit infuser takes that up a notch. It would definitely be easy for moms on the go! IMG_2363I filled my bottle up with strawberries, but I can’t wait to try oranges, limes, lemons … the Flavor Infuser Water Bottle ($15) even comes with a booklet with ideas for combos to try out! IMG_2370While you can’t put this water bottle in the freezer, it is dishwasher safe — sweet! Make sure you check out Uncommon Goods for other ideas for Mother’s Day! They have beautiful jewelry, soaps, glassware, candles and more. Disclaimer: These items were gifted to me from Uncommon Goods, however, all opinions are my own.

    I love the cheese board! Might have to get one of those!! 🙂 By the way, the NJ kitchen towel was a house warming gift for you and Jermaine, together with the movie ticket dish, although I did give it to you the day before your wedding, since that was the first time I saw your beautiful new home, and I know you were super tired that day and probably had a million things on your mind so I can see how it got confused and mixed in with the wedding gift hahaha 🙂 In any case I’m so happy you love it and now have a matching Alabama one too!

      Oh, you’re right, Dominika! I was definitely so wrapped up in “wedding-ness” that I forgot you meant it as a housewarming! I love it and the movie ticket plate — so us! The NJ towel has brought me smiles from home many times during this past year. And I’m so glad you like the cheese board, too. Get one for you, and for your mom! Love you!
