And honestly, I was extremely surprised at just how wonderfully it was made. The phone and dock have a nice texture and fits nicely in your hand. It works with pretty much any kind of phone & when I called my mom on it to see how it sounded, she said it sounded WAY better then the really expensive version my dad got on Amazon a while ago. So that's awesome, because this is quite reasonably priced.
One of the nifty things about the phone itself is that the cord comes unattached from the dock-itself and plugs directly into your phone. Which, if you're like me, is quite nice as sometimes I pace when I'm on the phone. Now, I know some of you might be like "Uh, Zie... why do you even need a phone... for your phone?"
I'm a product of my generation. I like how the traditional phone fits on my shoulder and ear, honestly. It is easier, and I don't have to worry about my phone dropping all of the time (which, I'm ashamed to admit how much of a problem that really is for me.)
But anyway, my only downside to this product is the fact that the cords come out the bottom half, and could easily be in the way. That black wire is how you plug in your phone for audio & not shown here is the white iPhone charger that would come down the bottom and go under the device to be plugged into the back of my computer. Neither of which are a big deal, really. Just if I had to give it a downside, that would be it.
Otherwise, I love it. I'm so glad I got it & I would easily and excitedly recommend this product to anyone looking for a good gift for the holidays!
Now, what I'm really excited about is all of the really awesome things that UncommonGoods does. Half of what they sell is handmade and one third of their entire collection features recycled or upcycled goods. They are really focused on a wide range of issues, including wage levels, environmental impact, and giving back to the community, which to me, is really important. I love supporting brands that support us back!
And as an independently-owned business, they can easily support causes that impact the world in a positive way. So with every purchase you make, UncommonGoods donates $1 to the non-proﬁt of your choice. BOOM. Awesome products, awesome company. I'm so stoked to have been invited to play with them for a bit.
Ok, ok, you get it! I'm a bit smitten :) But anyway, check out UncommonGoods for some all around wonderful holiday gifts, some specialized and personalized goodies, or some really uncommon & wacky gifts like this pick punch! Plus you can check out their own studio tour. It's pretty awesome :} I wish I could hangout with these guys, they seem so fun!
But now that we have officially reached the longest-studio-tour post ever... ;) I'm curious what's in your studio/office? What do you keep close by? What do you use the most? & What's your favorite uncommon gift idea this year? xo
