Valentine’s Day gifts from Uncommon Goods


I don’t really do gift guides terribly often, I just don’t think they are that fun to create and I prefer other work, however I do like reading gift guides. I often feel like after ten years I’m beginning to wonder what the hell to buy Adam for certain occasions – he collects fuckball, oops FOOTball, memorabilia but it’s often very pricey and not easy to get hold of at all. He says the same about me – I have a tendancy to ask for the same things, or refuse to ask for anything…

So ideas for Valentine’s day gifts?

I’ve only included things that I would like myself or that I would buy for Adam, and all of them can be found at one of my obsessions, Uncommon Goods (Top left, clockwise):

  1. Heart Vases – I bought a mini version of this for my mum for Christmas and she adores it.
  2. Date night bucket list – so fun and a great way to think of fun things to do when it’s getting tough to think of new things!
  3. Love is Art – basically a massive kit to allow you to paint yourselves and get it onnnn. I honestly think this would be hilarious fun and something that I would love… now to try and schedule in sexy time where the kids won’t walk in on us getting our Andy Warhol on…
  4. Stadium seat cufflinks – Adam would kill for a pair of cufflinks made out of a Boothferry Park seat. Literally.
  5. Personalised LP – Adam gave me our wedding song on a CD for Xmas and I loved it, this is the same thing just bigger and personalised for that extra special touch.
  6. Anniversary Journal – I’d LOVE this, I’m a documenter and this is essentially a way to document your anniversaries. So cool.
  7. Horse shoe heart trivet – this is right up my street, and also a very similar look to the door hook we have in the bedroom.
  8. Bee Love necklace – I adore this, isn’t it so pretty?

    I really love the Date Night bucket list and the Anniversary Journal, this would be fantastic for Valentine’s Day as to me they are romantic gifts. Those vases are very pretty as well x

    I love those ‘love is art’ products – never tried them but I think they’re very interesting and different to do as a couple or alone LOL just swoosh around and see what body art you make xo

    • Harriet January 19, 2017 / 10:21 pm

      Haha I love the idea of going solo – just swoosh is FAB!
