It’s time to start looking for the perfect gift for the special moms in your life. One place that has some really great unique gifts is UncommonGoods. They not only have unique gifts but they also are a very ethical and environmentally friendly company.

They are headquartered in Brooklyn, New York in the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal. All operations, including their warehouse, are housed there and their lowest-paid seasonal workers start at 50% above the minimum wage!

They are dedicated to providing beautiful products that work in harmony with the planet and don’t bring harm to people or animals. Most of their products are made in the USA and about one-third are recycled and/or use upcycled materials.

When you buy a gift from UncommonGoods you are also helping donate to some great non-profits. They donate $1 with every purchase to a charity of your choice from the following; RAINN, American Forests, Women for Women International, or City Harvest.

UncommonGoods has gifts for everyone, including some great ideas for Mother’s Day gifts. I’ve picked out some of my favorites to share with you.
