Graduation Gift Ideas
Uncommon Goods has you covered for all of your gift giving needs for graduation! Their line of gifts includes everything from necklaces to books to plaques and paperweights. I fell in love with so many things on their site but one item really stood out to me. I love the Recycled Glass Tree Globes from their Graduation Gift Ideas. They’re available in 5 different styles including Prosperity, Gratitude, Encouragement, Luck and Knowledge. I chose the knowledge one and am so excited to share it with you.
Encourage, thank or inspire those dearest to you with elegant 100% recycled glass globes, featuring an interior glass trunk that branches out to support vibrant splashes of color. Handmade in Canada by artist Stephen Kitras. Here are descriptions of the 5 globes available.
- Tree of Prosperity: Just as a tree is prosperous when it is full of leaves, bearing fruit or providing a shelter, we too can find prosperity in many different ways. The Tree of Prosperity reminds us that by finding our true happiness or helping others we may grow and prosper.
- Tree of Gratitude: Every day we are surrounded by many gifts. By taking the time to celebrate these gifts we are able to feel gratitude for the people or circumstances that allow us to have what we do. Gratitude can come in many forms and just like the roots of a tree, it can be deep and everlasting. By showing gratitude to those around us we acknowledge their efforts to make our lives and the lives around them meaningful.
- Tree of Encouragement: Just as a mighty tree was once a small sapling, our goals, dreams or hopes were once small. As we work hard and we surround ourselves with people who support us, we are able to achieve those dreams or conquer barriers we once thought impossible. The Tree of Encouragement reminds us that while the path may be long, we are not alone, and with the support of others, anything is possible.
- Tree of Knowledge: Like knowledge, trees branch out as they grow. This globe serves as a reminder to keep looking for new pathways and connections as we mature, build on the knowledge we accumulate, and cultivate wisdom.Tree of Luck: Trees provide shade, sustenance, and inspiration–lucky for us! This globe stands for the fortunate surprises that come along when we need them the most.
About The Globes
Uncommon Knowledge: To make these pretty globes, artist Stephen Kitras first has to receive a shipment of broken glass from a supplier in Seattle that makes windows for cars, homes and offices. They send their broken shards to Kitras, who then melts them down in a furnace for 12 hours before creating his signature pieces.
