*This is a sponsored post. My Opinions are my own.
Have you heard about UncommonGoods? I didn’t until they recently contacted me about a sponsored post. I almost turned them down until I took a look at their site. It is so FUN! There is much cool stuff a Foodie or Wine Lover would go crazy over. Ten seconds on the UncommonGoods site and I knew I was in trouble. I found hundreds of things I wanted to buy….
The best thing about UncommonGoods is the core values of their business. They take care of their employees by providing fair wage and health insurance to all of their full time employees. They offer a wide variety of products that are environmentally responsible by featuring items that have organic or recycled components or that are handmade. They are also a founding member of the B Corporation. The B Corporation is “an organization created to help customers understand the social and environmental impact of their purchases. The B seal means that a company has met the standards outlined in a comprehensive screening questionnaire, which evaluates a company on issues ranging from providing a living wage, to lessening their impact on the environment, to giving back to the community.”
After learning about the company and viewing their incredible product line, I agreed to do this sponsored post. I really like their product line and their core values.
10 Uncommon Gifts For the Food and Wine Lover
It was so fun picking out awesome gifts for the Food and Wine lover such as myself. Perhaps my husband or friends will read this post and send me a surprise. I would be so thrilled! Hint… Hint…
For the person that loves things homemade, I found these cool DIY kits.
Italian Cheesemaking Kit: I love restaurants that serve their own homemade cheese. I have always wanted to make my own. This kit contains everything you need to make 10 ITALIAN CHEESES! Just add milk. I definitely am going to order this kit myself. I can’t wait to get my hands on this!
Pinot Grigio Wine Making Kit: This is the perfect gift for the wine lover. This kit includes all the equipment and ingredients one needs to make one gallon of crisp, dry Italian Pinot Grigio with delicious fruit flavors and a delicate floral fragrance.
For more DIY Kits, look in the anniversary gift collection.
There are some great foodie gifts in their Birthday Collection for Her. Below are some of my picks.
The Flavors of America Salt Collection: High end, gourmet salt is a Foodie’s dream spice. Salt is the signature finish to most dishes and gourmet salt turns that signature finish into something extra special. This Flavors of America Salt Collection offers an assortment of 11 gourmet salts that includes a California salt infused in Sonoma County and Vintage Merlot, a New Mexican variety heated from smoked chipotle, and a Utah “sweet salt” (also called “Utah Red”) harvested from an underground prehistoric salt deposit deep inside a mountain.
The Mariner Cheese Board: This fun nautical cheese board spins like a lazy suzan holding four hidden steel cheese tools–a fork, chisel knife, blunt-tipped knife, and pointed-tip knife in the wheel’s magnetic slots.
Do you know someone that loves Sake? How cool would it be for them to make their own? This Sake Making Kit contains everything you need (except 1 lb. white raisons and 2.5 lbs. of sugar) to brew a gallon of homemade sake.
In the Birthday Collection for Him, I found these yummy finds:
Beer Jelly Set of 4: These handmade, small batch preserves are made with local craft beers from Vermont. While great on toast, they are a lovely addition to cheese platters and make an excellent glaze for meats.
Smoked Vermont Maple Syrup: This barrel aged, Smoked Vermont Maple Syrup is delicious on biscuits and pancakes. It is also amazing drizzled over root vegetables or mixed in with your favorite cocktail.
Sushi Making Kit: I actually have something similar to this and I love it. I learned how to make sushi from it and have been very adventurous with it in the kitchen. I highly recommend this Sushi Making kit as a birthday or hostess gift. It is so fun!
They have a really great unique gift section for the wine lovers! Here are two I chose.
Wine & Beverage Dispensing Tote: Ok… I need at least 20 of these. I have so many girlfriends that would go CRAZY over this. If you want to make a woman smile, nothing is better than a new purse and a bottle of wine… Guess what? This is both! Or will be both once you add her favorite wine to the tote.
On-the-Go Wine Cooler: This On-the-Go Wine Cooler keeps wine chilled for up to 12 hours on the go. This is perfect for traveling or picnics!
Those are my 10 picks… but I really could pick out so much more. There are Fruit Infusing Ice Balls, Magnetic Bottle Opener, Stackable Ice Pop Molds, and a DIY Hot Sauce Kit… I mean really? Can Santa come early? I could go on and on… UncommonGoods is the perfect site to find the perfect gift for that hard to find something for person. You are welcome! xoxo!
