“Where have you traveled?”
I love hearing about where other people have experienced. Were they able to get to all the touristy spots? Did they enjoy the food? Tell me everything…
I haven’t been many too many places, but a few places stick out in my mind. When UncommonGreen reached out to me about a blog post, I jumped at getting a pint glass with a city of my choice etched on it. Cool, huh?
UncommonGreen is a lifestyle brand founded in Boston, Massachusetts. They create custom maps on glassware (like coffee mugs, pint, wine and whiskey glasses), states printed on slate boards (think displaying cheese and fruit), prep boards for dicing and slicing, and decor (candles and bar towels).
Behind the Brand
UncommonGreen began in 2009 when designer Brian Johnson wanted to make everyday products that featured artistry paired with functionality, practicality, sustainability, and style. When his three college friends, Dave Reddy, Neil Angis, and Colin Woodworth came onboard, they decided to focus their vision on an innovative design. Creating exceptional goods with a conscience, UncommonGreen uses materials and packaging from the US, and employs Earth-friendly practices to create their unique form of art.
I ordered a pint glass with a map of New York City etched on it. I love traveling into the city to see a Broadway show, eat at a fancy restaurant, go to an exhibit at a museum, or go shopping. The city that never sleeps is a fun and exciting place. When I sit on my couch in the middle of my suburban NJ home, I get a wave of nostalgia from my teenage years into my twenties each sip I take out of UncommonGreen pint glass. I have many great memories in NYC and look forward to my next adventure in the Big Apple!
UncommonGreen makes a perfect gift for the person who has everything. If you have a family member or friend who has completed a marathon, why not get them a wine or pint class with the marathon route etched on it? What a great, celebratory gift!
Who on your Christmas list enjoys visiting mountains and canyons? Check out the topography rocks glasses where they could enjoy their favorite whiskey near the campfire and reminiscence about their vacation. One of these days I will visit the Grand Canyon!
Know a mathematician? UncommonGreen has a Math and Science glassware for Pi-fanatics, geneticists, chemists, and engineers. History buff? Read all the classics? Check out the History and Literature collection where you could get rocks glasses and candles with your favorite sayings.
Relive the cool summer breeze from your Nantucket honeymoon or the magic of Martinique in the moonlight. Every time you pick up a glass from UncommonGreen’s Island Collection you’ll be transported to a place you won’t want to leave.
You can travel the world, but there really is no place like home. The Hometown Collection enables customers to order custom glasses from ANY city, town or locale in the US! I would love to get another pint glass of Morristown, NJ etched on it; that is where my husband and I met back in December 2010.
