Half of what they sell is made by hand, most right here in the U.S. And about a third of the items they sell are made from recycled or upcycled materials. Many items come with some info about the artist and the product, and how it got to you.

Gifts for People Who Like to Eat

Cheese “&” Cracker Board

There are so many gorgeous cutting boards available on the uncommongoods site, I had a hard time choosing a favorite. But since I always serve cheese and crackers at parties, I fell in love with this Ampersand board, with a channel for the crackers. Get it? Cheese “&” Crackers??

Pistachio Server

If there’s one food that I hate to put out at parties, it’s pistachios. Why? Because it has a part attached to it that’s not eaten. When you put pistachios out at a party, the question becomes, what do the guests do with the shells? Well, this serving dish have solved the problem.
