It’s Better to Give Because…

We're proud to support our Better to Give partners and the positive impacts they're making on the world all year long, but on December 1, 2015, we were able to step-up our giving game and donate more to help them do good.

From Beer to Booze: Gift Picks for the Home Bartender

Their fridge is fully-stocked with the perfect combination of craft brews and classic beers. Their wine rack is loaded with reds, whites, and maybe even a bit of the bubbly. They know just what it takes to mix the perfect cocktail. That's right, we're talking about the Home Bartender--and we created a collection of gifts that will surely make this adult beverage connoisseur raise their glass.

How do you choose artists to feature on your blog?

We're always looking for artists with interesting stories to tell. We feature artists in several types of maker stories on the blog. Artists new to UncommonGoods are often profiled in our This Just In-spiration series, which is a quick Q&A to introduce our readers and customers to our latest products and the people who make them. We also love profiling artists that go above and beyond when it comes to sustainable business practices in our Uncommon Impact series. When we're lucky enough to work with artists with studios near our location in Brooklyn (or in surrounding areas), we might stop by their workspace for a Studio Tour. Finally, since we know not every artist will fit into one of these categories, we'll also feature maker stories outside of these series. If you're an UncommonGoods maker who'd love to share your inspiration or creative process, who makes something out of unique materials, or who factors social and environmental responsibility into your business practices, we want to share your story. Email blog@uncommongoods.com to tell us more.
