    I am a single female that lives alone with my cats. I blog about my quilting, cats and daily life. Would love to blog about gifts, jewelry or kitchen items.

    Of the above choices, the picture frame fits my life the best. Too bad there wasn’t a screwdriver option, altho those wrenches look like a good idea, given there is enough space around the nut that you need to tighten.

  • Reply Elizabeth February 7, 2011 at 2:57 pm

    Oh, man, I’m totally putting one of the dice cards in my next order. Such a good idea!

    (I’d love to review it, but I don’t really have much of a blog right now… I can tweet about it, if you’d like! :D)

    As an insane fan of all uncommon goods, I’d love to review these new wallet tools! I know my husband would flip for the cufflink tool, as a man who rolls up his sleeves everyday and is always buying cufflinks/ties on his way to meetings!
    I’d love to review any unique new products, especially those things that are “ideal” gifts!

    I’m new to blogging, , but these would make a great travel gift for clients or anyone out and about. Gadgets are a welcome surprise to travellers and a big hit with guides and locals. But they do have to work, I wonder about the cufflinks, they look clunky and I’m having difficulty envisioning the dice. Bring it on!

    Hi, I’m a home decor blogger with a focus on rental-friendly decor and ethically produced and/or handmade goods. I’d be interested in working with your company to review and/or do a giveaway of home decor or accessories.

    I was just researching product reviews and looking for a new subject to try on my blog and got this email. Perfect timing? I am also an artist and loveee Uncommon Goods products and commitment supporting actual artists!
    I would love to review the cufflinks or any of the line for that matter. They all look very cool (one of those things that make you think WHY DIDNT I THINK OF THAT!)

  • Reply Claudia February 7, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    I blog about life with my family (husband, two young children). I have unusual hobbies and a quirky sense of humor; I would love to review any of your items. Your products are great; I have purchased them on several occasions as gifts.

    I work on a number of blogs (personal ones exist at , my twitter account at and a professional (PR & Communications one at and will be launching another consumer-product based blog in the coming fortnight.

    Would love to have this as an initial review item on the launch of the new blog. I’m a Manhattanite (and long-time shopper at UG), love my Fr. Cuff shirts and enjoy the occasional tipple, so there’s definitely an opp to try these out.

    I have another blog at, and have, over the years, written about many things, often prompted by issues, a good book, an experience, and the experiences of others that I can relate to. I enjoy thought-provoking, educated conversation (about anything, even a rock) and am thrilled to pass on information about a great find to my friends (gotta share a good thing!). I am always on the lookout at UncommonGoods for unique gifts that serve a greater purpose than being just another gift.

    Oooh! I’d LOVE to blog about this on I’ve done product reviews before with great success. I actually have a review of one of your products on my Christmas review :

    Thanks for the opportunity! Love your style…

  • Reply Lauren February 7, 2011 at 5:34 pm

    As I sit here at a bar waiting for a friend to arrive, I’m writing this comment. It’s a wonderful time to catch up on emails and such.
    My blog, is all about food, drinks, and shenanigans. I can imagine the wallet dice would be very usefull in the shenanigans part. I’ve been in many a situation that dice have been needed but no one had any so we’ve had to do late night runs to Publix or Walmart.
    Wallet dice would definitely make for a good story.

  • Reply lihi February 7, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    I have to admit – when I first got the email blast with the image I thought “are these wallet hooks? and if not, what are they?!” but then opening this page and understanding this line of products – it’s just brilliant!
    I’d love to feature the cufflinks, the mini photo frame and the dice on my blog, inaccessory –, which is all about unique and cool accessories for men and women.

    Thanks for sharing this opportunity!

  • Reply Rose February 7, 2011 at 5:42 pm

    I’d love to blog about this one! The cufflinks or the wrenches would be great for my husband and I’d love to try the mini photo frame – great for showing off my latest photo of my boys.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Reply Michelle February 7, 2011 at 6:05 pm

    I’d be happy to blog about anything, but even more so, if it were photography related. Perhaps even wedding and/or wedding photography related. BUT I am open to blog about ANYTHING and associate it with one of my images, AND then blog it! That would be quite fun! I especially like any recycled/repurposed products, crafts, and jewelry…. but I really could, and would, review just about anything! I could include photos of the item(s) PLUS, somehow, relate it to one or more of my images, just for a bit of flair! :O)

    I would love to blog about any of your products. Your site is the first place I go for gifts and actually included some of your products in my Christmas gift idea post in December.

    What makes Uncommon Goods so unique is your items are perfect for the person who already has everything. I also love the fact that they are so practical. The Wallet Cufflinks is perfect for my Savionaire readers since the item is for a dapper man, and my audience is Refined Generation Xers On The Go. I review items that simplify life for my on the go readers.

    I have recently started a fashion blog and stumbled upon your site while looking at some fashion magazine. I find many of the products (especially the jewelry and home items) to look amazing and quite often tweet them or facebook them. I have yet to order something but hope to do so in the future. I would love the chance to blog about your products. I have turned many people on to your website already and feel I could do do so much more if given the chance to try a product.

  • Reply Gloria February 7, 2011 at 7:19 pm

    Feel free to send me any products to review that are parent-friendly, kid-friendly, eco-friendly or eco-frugal friendly. I will post it at Gloria’s Place ( I’ve been a fan of Uncommon Goods for years and would love to review your products.

    I don’t blog currently (no time with a FT job), but at each major holiday I do ‘gift suggestions’ for all my FB friends. I’m well up over 200+ and have suggested items from Uncommon Goods many times! And, like others — I have written reviews for items purchased.
    Keep up the great finds — I love you guys!

    Even dogs love Uncommon Goods! My site,, covers shopping, grocery and drugstore deals, freebies and giveaways–oddly enough, no dog coverage though, sorry. My large-headed dog is just my inspiration. I’m a working mom, journalist and blogger who loves writing about products with a cheeky style. Groupon and Woot writers are my rock stars. What I love about Uncommon Goods is its unique products, which are aplenty with unique ways to describe them. I’d adore a chance to review Uncommon Goods products.

    I just started my blog at the new year. I blog about daily things. I also am reviewing different things that I come across. I am a photographer and love photographing different items as well. I post recipes and food pictures too. Your site is my absolute favorite that I go to for gifts, I recommend it to anyone, I would love to review anything! I love the whole wrench and picture frame idea that you have going on now, I can’t see that I would get any use of the cufflinks as I don’t wear them, but that is still a fun idea!

  • Reply Erin February 8, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    Right now I’m writing a blog highlighting things I’m making and selling, DIY projects, home remodeling happenings, and I already feature hot lists and reviews of things I find and want.

    I know quite a few gamblers who would love to have dice on hand without having to carry real dice in their pockets. I know plenty of photographers who’d love to use the photo frames and I’m thinking that wrench would be good for fellow DIYers in a pinch. Great for gifts, the perfect price.

  • Reply Andrea February 8, 2011 at 11:26 pm

    I’m a young, female artist, with a propensity toward problem solving and a consequential penchant for reverse engineering. I never leave home without a Swiss Army knife…a pink one, at that….which I keep in my purse….

    These wallet tools are seemingly genius; functional art at its best. While I might lean more toward the wrenches (for both repairs and stenciling), the dice would be great for any gambler-on-the-go looking to make a few new friends (and dollars) in an impromptu game during long trips or in back alleys–or for kids during long car rides, to save parents from the “are we there yets” (or for parents, in the “take a shot” version, after the car ride, of course). The photo frame could easily make any picture, ticket stub or flower an instant, portable keepsake. And the cufflinks could be a hipster’s dream solution to formal wear, while preventing businessmen from that “am I forgetting something?” feeling on the red-eye or in the cab between meetings.

    The non-conformist in me won’t allow myself to have a blog, but my “screw it” attitude prevails during downtime and tolerates Facebook when necessary. If it’s writing samples you’re looking for, I can send you email conversations I’ve had with my best friend/”pen” pal, who’s been begging me to start a blog for years because of these “letters.” She’s worth her weight in gold, and hers is the only opinion I trust (and, therefore, so should you). I have a multitude of opinions and can’t help but be honest. If you need a review, on anything, I’d love to give you one (and I’ll post it wherever you want, since I’m enthralled with what you guys offer).


  • Reply Frances February 9, 2011 at 12:13 am

    the wallet tools look fun. I’m a mom-of-four and would probably find another use than intended, as most things found in my purse. in the future, I would like to review household stuff or anything portable.

  • Reply Fifi February 9, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    I’m all about obscure methods, products and ideas. People often suck into the comfort of conformity – but everyone wants to be special. My message to readers tends to center toward food: the best wineries to hit during domestic travel, cooking new foods, trying hidden restaurants. I would love to blog about new kitchen products to use when trying out a new recipe – or some entertaining gear when hosting a cocktail party.

    i’m an artist and blog about my adventure into living the creative life while raising three boys. as such, i review just about anything and everything i think needs a little recognition and i love all things quirky and interesting. i have previously reviewed baby gear, diaper bags, stationary, beauty products, business cards and art supplies, so my readers never know what to expect 😉

    i love uncommon goods and would be happy to review and blog about anything you’d think would be a good fit and these wallet tools are a great start! i can see myself making good use of the wrench often.
