12 Father’s Day Gifts for the Practical Pop

So your dad’s the kind of guy who doesn’t love it when you spend money on lavish Father’s Day surprises for him. He really believes it’s the thought that counts and would be perfectly happy with the gift of a pair of tube socks or a value pack of batteries—ya know, something he can really use. While we understand Dad’s devotion to utilitarian gifts, we think there are plenty of creative ways to compromise. This collection of thoughtful-yet-useful gifts will help you find something that makes you feel great about gifting while, more importantly, giving Pops a practical gift he’ll want to try out right away.


Find a Fountain Water Bottle | UncommonGoods

So maybe a water bottle that looks nice isn’t on the top of your practical dad’s gift list. But one that’s made of super durable borosilicate glass, easily attaches to his bike or bag, and comes with an app that tells him the closest places to refill it for free probably is. The nice-looking part is just a bonus.

13 Stellar Finds for Space Lovers

April 20, 2018

Carl Sagan once said, “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” We know that he was talking about the mind-blowing, cosmic kind of “something,” but we figure that same statement can apply to incredibly cool stuff here on Earth too. In the spirit of discovery–even if it’s simply the discovery of your favorite new space-themed goodies–we rounded up a selection of products that celebrate the moon, stars, planets, and beyond.

1. A necklace depicting our solar system. (Oh, hey Pluto!)

Solar System Bubble Bib Necklace | UncommonGoods

Most true space geeks are OK with the whole Pluto getting downgraded thing. After all, it’s science! Still, our solar system isn’t complete without everyone’s favorite dwarf planet, so this lovely bib necklace features the sun, the eight big ones, and lil’ Pluto.

Inside the Artist’s Studio with Jewelry Designer Sue Beatrice

Have you ever looked inside of a modern watch? Despite being able to do much more than tell time, today’s “timepieces” look surprisingly simple when you crack them open. But, as artist and jewelry designer Sue Beatrice showed us, that wasn’t always the case. In fact, for centuries clocks and watches were loaded with teeny-tiny parts: wheels, pinions, bearings, and nearly microscopic screws. To say Sue is enamored with timepieces is an understatement. Her collection of antique clocks, watches, and their components is massive. When asked how many pieces she thinks she has, she can only reply, “Way too many to count.” So what does she do with all of those gorgeous gears? She turns them into remarkable little sculptures. Some of those sculptures even end up as eclectic-yet-elegant jewelry designs.

Sue’s jewelry isn’t all made from itty-bitty parts, but it is all lovingly designed with great attention to detail. Her Love “Nose” Necklace is so cute it’s pretty much impossible not to smile when you see it. Her Origami Menagerie Necklaces look almost like they could be made from actual paper. (Shiny paper; they’re sterling silver!) And her Stargazer Necklace captures a map of the constellations.  Of course, we carry a few of her delightful designs made from clock parts, too.
