Summer is almost here, and we all know that means lots of birthdays and other holidays. How do you handle them? I handle them by planning ahead and knowing my favorite places to shop.
Please note: This is a sponsored post. That means I was compensated for my time but all opinions are 100% mine. I wouldn’t share with you information about companies or products I don’t absolutely love!
One of my favorite places to shop is uncommongoods. Why? There are so many reasons, but I just want to share a couple with you. First, I love their commitment to sustainability. It means more than just being green to them. They believe in treating their employees well. This means they offer their full-time and most part-time employees a health insurance benefit. I know I would have loved to work for a company like that. I remember doing part-time work and being terrified of getting sick because it would cost me a small fortune. Second, I love that giving back is so important to them. You can select a non-profit at checkout and they will donate $1! This is a great feature for someone who not only believes in sustainability and economic support but also giving back to the community. I know $1 doesn’t sound like a lot, but it all adds up if you give a little with every purchase. Plus, you get a product you love and can stand behind.
What will I be buying for family and friends this summer? I’ll be buying stuff from uncommongoods clearly! I’m going to share with you some of my favorites.
My friends are book lovers so it only makes sense that they might LOVE the from the page candle set or to write their own life story. They’re also very grateful to have a friend like me so why not give them a way to show how grateful they are to all their friends. A year of gratitude helps us to all live happier lives. I also want them to be happy so a growing wishes seed kit allows them to grow their own destiny. Hmm, I wonder if I won’t just buy them all for myself! Kidding!

Family Birthdays (For Her):
My family likes wine. What can I say? Seriously, though. We’re all about the good stuff. I’m obsessed with these self-chilling wine glasses because it really solves the problem for people who don’t like warm wine! Plus, it should be at cellar temperature and not room temperature anyway. I digress. I also know some penguin lovers who need to relax for a hot minute. Plus, who doesn’t love pretty jewelry? These are perfect gifts for all my summer family birthdays for these reasons alone!

Family Birthdays (For Him):
Yet again my family loves the alcohol. It sounds terrible, but we’re really not like that. I swear. I think mostly it sounds ridiculous in a way to waste good scotch on infusing toothpicks, but I love it. I’d totally buy them. Yard dice are always fun for games. Collar stays never go out of style and who doesn’t lose their keys. These are all great and mostly practical gifts for him and they’re all literally about to be in my cart.
