Mother’s Day Gifts {UncommonGoods} + $50 GC Giveaway

UncommonGoods is often a store I visit for unique gifts.  It is a place filled with, well, uncommon goods, finds that are contemporary yet out of the ordinary.

In anticipation for Mother’s Day, I was sent a package of perfect mom gifts.  Nothing says home relaxation better than a nice cup of tea, aromatherapy and quiet time to reflect.  When thinking about purchasing gifts for the mom in your life, first check out UncommonGoods’ guide for Mother’s Day gifts 2012.  There you will find a group of tilting teacupgreat gifts ranging from jewelry to kitchen items to bonsai trees.  So whether you are looking for gifts for your mother or the mother of your children, you will be able to find it!  Search around UncommonGoods for top gift ideas for wife and mom.

I am a huge tea lover so when I saw the Tilting Teacup I was really excited.  The product was a 2011 Red Dot Design honorable mention so I knew it had to be great.  Preferring to steep loose leaves, I resort to different infusers that are always separate.  The Tilting Teacup is a multi-tasking product that allows you to steep your tea and drink from the same cup.

Keeping with my motto of simple design is the best design,  this teacup is easy to use while functioning on a high level.  The bottom of the cup is angled, giving it two resting sides.  Insert the tea leaves into the designated area, fill the cup with hot water, tilt the cup and infuse.  Once it has reached your desired level, tilt the cup the other way and enjoy.  No muss, no fuss, only deliciously fresh tea.  The screen is removable for easy cleaning and the cup is dishwasher safe.

While I am now relaxing with my Tilting Teacup filled with freshly brewed Jasmine Downy Pearl tea, I slip on my new aromatherapy slippers, also found at UncommonGoods.  The Rosette Herbal Resting Slippers are exactly what they sound like.  They are quite fragrant as they are packed with lavender, rosemary, chamomile, peppermint and lemongrass.  Heat these slippers up in the microwave and they become even more fragrant and soothing.  They can also be placed in the refrigerator if you are in the need of some cooling action.

The slippers are not made for walking, just resting, which is all you’ll want to do in these.  The super soft exterior works well for relaxing after work or before bed (or if you’re lucky, all day).  I found a couple minutes in the microwave kept my feet warm for over an hour, very relaxing.

Check our UncommonGoods for more fun items that make for really excellent gifts.  If you are feeling stumped,  paper gifts are always a surefire way to go.  Personalized journals, framed prints, and other items of the like are easy yet thoughtful–and will be well received.
