Uncommon Goods for Mother’s Day

I just got the latest Uncommon Goods catalog in the mail, and – as always – there are some perfectly delightful gift ideas for Mother’s Day that I couldn’t help but share.

A few of my favorites:

Glass Memory Locket
This glass pendant is ready for you to fill. You can show faces on both sides of the frame. Or you can let your creativity go crazy, with a tiny collage of photos, keepsakes, and objects. You can change the goodies inside as often as you like. Try love notes, quotes, prayers, drawings, sand sea shells, wildflowers, whatever you want. The closure is magnetic.

Custom-Made Family & Friends Platter
This platter builds an already-beautiful earthenware ceramic into a touching centerpiece. Choose up to 20 names to display (or 20 words of your choice). The center name in the middle can be up to 10 characters. Your piece will be handmade and handpainted by Sheree Burlington in New Hampshire. (As you can imagine, this one takes some extra time. Allow 3 to 4 weeks for delivery, so this one won’t be ready in time for this Mother’s Day). Still we think it’s gorgeous.

Okay, one more:


Renewal Tree Globes
Six inches in diameter, these gorgeous globes are hand-blown in Canada from glass artist Stephen Kitras. You’ll delight at the inner trunk and branches and the vibrant colors in the tree’s canopy will catch light and cast color into the room.
