    Entrepreneurs Anniversary

    Comments about UncommonGoods What Would You Attempt Paperweight:

    The words were very fitting when trying to find a gift for the entrepreneur business man who has everything. He immediately placed it on his desk as he began pondering his next big venture! I used express shipping and the product was scheduled to deliver on time. UPS however made a mistake when out to deliver but other than that it would have arrived on time. None the less the gift was encouraging and appreciated. I will definitely use this service again when trying to find the perfect gift for that hard to buy for individual. Thank you UG!

    IThis was a gift and the verse itself had meaning so that is why I purchased the item. It is nice, however the scripted font could be a bit larger. Still a very nice item.

      I got this as a 2 year anniversary gift for my S.O. He is a very driven, independent attorney with an enormous amount of passion for his career. Needless to say, this was the PERFECT gift for him and he loves it!! It is simply stated but profound and thought provoking. It is very sleek, of good quality, and one of a kind!

            This was a graduation gift for my nephew and it couldn't have been more perfect. I was looking for something unique and thoughtful and this fit the bill perfectly. I will say even though the dimensions are clear for some reason I thought it would be able to stand up just as easy as it would lay down but as it is clearly made to lay flat. I still love it and would buy another should an occasion arise where this would make a suitable gift. And of course, the shipping was beyond compare to any company I order from!

                I purchased this insightful/inspirational paperweight for my husband many years ago in a local shop. It's traveled to our various homes and offices, weathering them all, providing the same provocative message...not only for him, but for me...for anyone. Now we have a friend who's searching for his calling and we were lucky enough to discover this paperweight still being offered at Uncommon Goods for his birthday. Perfect! He loved it! Our only "con" was the width of the paperweight. It's thinner (half the width) than my husband's...a bit too thin to stand on it's own where it can be easily seen. But it's still a great gift and I'd buy it again! Plus, Uncommon Goods has awesome service!
