Buying Unique Christmas Presents From Overseas

Christmas presents from overseas

With Christmas fast approaching (77 days to be precise!), you may well have already received a Christmas Wish List or at least ideas of what presents people would like to be gifted this year… or you may well be panicking over what to buy that special someone that no-one else has thought of.

If you do not have the time to physically go out and visit numerous shops in the hope of finding the perfect gift, then the Internet is the best place for you to shop! The world is your oyster… quite literally, as there are many online stores that do ship to the UK and worldwide, so it is well worth looking further afield than you normally would.




Looking for something out of the ordinary? Then why not check out online gift store Uncommon Goods based in America! The company run their very ethical store out of a very cool historic Brooklyn Army Terminal, where the lowest paid seasonal worker starts at 50% above the minimum wage. Their blog makes for a lovely read and you can find out more about the designers and artists behind the unique gifts on offer here.

The Uncommon Goods range of gifts covers items such as handmade bijou jewellery, gorgeous must have items for the home and unique gifts ideas for men, women and children.

Gifts from overseas



Unicorn gifts are so in right now and I expect that many people will be unwrapping related gifts for Christmas, even Mini Me has her eye on a huge unicorn soft toy. Even I don’t have to miss out on the action as I am quite liking the look of this Elwood the Rainbow Unicorn mug, priced at £29.05. Alongside information such as the mug being sculpted by hand out of stoneware, you even get an insight into the creator of the item which is a lovely additional touch!

I could quite happily wile away the hours, spending a fortune in my wishlist and I am sure if you check out the site then you will agree.

So, whether you are looking for a unique and handcrafted gift for the gentleman in your life or a treat to you from you this Christmas, time spent on the Uncommon Goods site will help you find the perfect present!

A collaborative post.

I think that’s so good that they pay so well. Craftspeople should be valued – it can take many hours to create something gorgeous, a £5 imitation made by a machine is never so special.

Absolutely – I love ethical companies like this and the items are all so amazing, they have clearly all been lovingly made. That unicorn mug though, that would make for an awesome mug of coffee 😉 x
