We absolutely love living so close to the beach. While we also live close to the city of Newcastle upon Tyne, we stroll along the coastal path or even on the sands whenever we want. The house we stayed in while we were in Brittany did interior coastal style so well, and for those people who also love the beach, even those who might not get to spend time there as often as we can, I found some wonderful gifts on the website UncommonGoods.com.
UncommonGoods make it their mission to support and provide a platform for artists and designers; in fact, half of what they sell is made by hand. About one-third of the entire collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials. I love that they support the integrity of the creative individual and the belief that it is their responsibility to use the business to impact the world in a positive way.
I’ve selected some of their fantastic products that would be perfect gifts for people who love the beach.

Why choose to shop at UncommonGoods.com
The reason why I like UncommonGoods is that they promote and support small artisan businesses and people. They aren’t selling products from big companies mass producing countless numbers of the same gifts.
I love their ‘Better to Give’ Programme. Every time you shop with UncommonGoods you can select a non-profit organisation to receive a $1 donation from them, they have already donated over 1 million dollars through this programme alone.
