My Military Spouse Gift Guide With UncommonGoods
During my years as a military spouse, I have learned that sometimes a nice gift, either from a friend or family member or something I bought for myself can make my day. Whether the gift is something to help me feel better or something for my home, adding something new that really speaks to me is nice.
As military spouses, we can go through a lot of stressful situations. Our husbands can be deployed, we can be stressed about a pcs or we can be having difficulties with our children. A great gift can help with that, Whether we are buying the gift for a friend going through a difficult time or for ourselves.
Here are some great gift ideas for military spouses from UncommonGoods. You can see a lot of their home and garden products here. This company was founded in 1999 and has its headquarters in Brooklyn, New York. UncommonGoods features unique jewelry, designer décor, tabletop items, and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment without harm to animals or people.
I also love that the UncommonGoods CEO Dave Bolotsky is passionate about the role of business in implementing a fair minimum wage. They run all of their operations out of the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal and the lowest-paid seasonal worker starts at 50% above the minimum wage.
