August 14, 2017

Give us a two! Give us a zero! What’s that? Two-zero, otherwise known as 20! Congrats on making it through two decades of partnership, complete with highs and lows. How, according to tradition, should we celebrate your 20th anniversary? With gifts made from china, of course. We scoured the depths of UncommonGoods for our finest porcelain offerings, coming up with ten favorites that cover a good chunk of ground, from geometric serving sets to Zen-inspired decor. Read on for our top picks, plus one item featuring this year’s modern material, platinum.

Take Out Bowls | UncommonGoods

It wouldn’t be a UG gift guide without a borderline unnecessary pun, now would it? Behold this pair of porcelain take out bowls, which qualify as a year 20 gift on two fronts: First, well, they’re made out of porcelain; and second, they sure do remind us of China (or Chinese take out, anyway).
