I admit it. I am not a good gift-giver. It’s not that I lack in appreciation or generosity but, rather, I just have no idea what people would like. Sure, there are the normal things like cards, gift certificates, flowers, etc. but whenever I try to stray from those I usually get it wrong. My mom, on the other hand, gets the best gift for each person every time. I don’t know how she does it but I hope to be like her when I grow up! In the meantime, I’m glad I found Uncommon Goods!
It’s always important to try before you buy so I did a trial run of ordering something for myself first. I decided to get the Jewel Tone Sari Scarf which had an interesting video linked to it, telling the story of how these scarves were carefully and individually made by hand. I was impressed by the fast shipping and softness of the scarf.
I’m not that great about accessorizing my outfits but I quite liked how this simple, yet richly-colored scarf, could dress up a plain black shirt. Plus, it’s long and thin enough to tie in several different ways. It is not, however, good as a wrap. The ends are sewn just enough to prevent raveling and does not take away from the beautiful collection of fabrics. It also versatile enough to wear with a skirt or with jeans.
The items found here are, well, uncommon. That means you can find a unique gift for everyone you have in mind. They’ve got a great selection for him, her, the kids, and for the home. Check out their selection of japanese gifts,magnetic silly putty, and creative paper gifts. So next time you need to get a present and can’t ask my mom for suggestions, try this store for some fascinating ideas!
I absolutely LOVE it! The colors are just fantastic!
It’s so pretty. I just need some ideas on way to wear it now 😛
Oh my, that scarf is stunning! I love the vivid colors and crinkly texture!
Thanks! To top it off, it’s unbelievable soft too!
Love the scarf. Beautiful colors!! It looks great on you TerriAnn. I will have to take a look at this place. Thanks for sharing!!!
You’re welcome. I heard that you watched the ‘making of’ video too 😛
Beautiful scarf! Love seeing you wear it different ways. Very fun!
What can I say, you inspired me 🙂
Yes, I did watch the “making of “video. It was very interesting. Hardworking women & men making these scarves by hand. Glad to have you back! You will have to tell me how your trip went. Got in a lot of excises with doggy. I miss walking with her. : (
I heard – poor Speckles is missing her mile to 2-mile walks with her auntie 😛 Today we left her for twenty minutes NOT in her crate. When we came home she decided the scarf look good – good enough to eat. So she chewed a couple of holes in it. Then she made those puppy eyes and we had to hug her after her scolding.
OH NO!!! Your beautiful scarf? I know what you mean about puppy eyes. Its hard to stay angry with eyes and a face like Speckles. LOL!!! 😉
