Get Mom More Than A Mug For Mother’s Day.
Unique Glass Wear For Under $50
Mother’s Day is upon us. But what are you going to get mom for Mother’s Day. She got a scarf last year, you gave her necklace for her birthday and your kids have outgrown making mom needs to drink. Well, every person needs to drink. WHAT they drink is up to them!
Drink Up Mom
Perhaps it is water. Or maybe they are a soda drinker. Or perhaps mom is a mojito drinker. Personally I am a sangria type of gal. UnCommon Goods sent me this pop top 6 pack for this post. With a price point of just $40 this is well within my budget.
They are designed by Barry Rosenthal and I fell in LOVE with them. Beyond a typical drinking glass the designer took cues from a pop top can for the form and decorated the outside with shadows of different types of pop tops. The 6 bright and brilliant colors are going to make my summer drinking more playful with a touch of whimsy. Learn more about the design process for these glasses in this post. Double bonus for me in that they are dishwasher safe! I love things that go in the dishwasher!
Made In The USA
If you are looking for a Made in the USA gift for mom this one fits the bill. The glasses made in Toledo, Ohio, decorated in Baltimore, Maryland. Considering I grew up outside of Baltimore and my husband currently works in Baltimore I will file this product under the ‘made locally’ category.
Speaking of made in the USA and supporting local read a little bit more about what UnCommon Goods stands for:
Founded in 1999 and headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, UncommonGoods is an privately-owned retailer that endeavors to feature unique designs and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment and without harm to animals or people. We run all our operations out of the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal, including our warehouse where the lowest-paid seasonal worker starts at 50% above the minimum wage. We make it our mission to support and provide a platform for artists and designers; in fact, half of what we sell is made by hand. Most of the products we carry are created right here in the USA, and about one-third of our entire collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials. At the core of our company is a great respect for the integrity of the creative individual and the belief that it is our responsibility to use our business to impact the world in a positive way.
