Uncommon features and presentation
UncommonGoods presents shoppers with an array of special features that make shopping at UncommonGoods an entertaining, convenient, and uncommon experience. These features include:

With the Holidays upon us, everyone is searching for those great, and unique gifts.
If you are looking for something a little different from the same old, then check out Uncommongoods.com.
They have a wide variety of gifts from dishware, to books, jewelery and even gifts for those wine lovers on your list!!!
I got the pleasure of reviewing The Fondue Set for Two, Wine For Two Wine Rack, and their Wine Bottle Cheese Platter.
We are a huge cheese eating family, and having the fondue set is great.
I melted the cheese in the microwave first. I was nervous that a tea light could not melt the cheese. After awhile of sitting there, the candle did keep the cheese nice and warm. It is made out of ceramic, which I think helps retain the heat.
The Wine glass holder is a really neat simple design as well. It is very easy to use, looks cute on my counter, and it holds two glasses and a bottle.
I really liked the cheese platter!!! It is shaped like a flattened bottle, and after using it, I hung it on the wall. It looks great!!
So for those hard to buy for, have everything, or you just have no clue what to get people on your list, check out Un Common Goods. You just might get all your shopping done in one place!!!
