Areaware Reviews


Areaware has so many fun items available, and they do sales occasionally so look out for those. Highly recommend anything from their collab with Dusen Dusen and the Goober candles.

We need more brands like Areaware, and we need them now. Areaware products are the cool single aunt. They don't take themselves too seriously, and they're just hands down fun. We got the new serving utensils and have been using them religiously. When they're shaped like flowers, it's hard not to feel the faith!


Need a restock!

Have owned areaware products for over 10 years, and they consistently receive the most compliments when guests come over :) an ethical company that supports good design, I couldn’t ask for anything more.

I love the Areaware puzzles. They are adorable, fun puzzles that are high quality. I have tons of the little puzzle thing puzzles which are all under 100 pieces and are great to do in about 20-30 minutes while drinking my morning coffee.

Mostly know of Areaware because of their puzzles which are fun and/or aesthetically pleasing and worked well as pandemic gifts.

Areaware's got a quirky but thoughtful variety of home decor pieces and just random tchotchkes that make a statement. I have their bookends and conquered their black & white gradient puzzle much to my delight! Their goober candles have been all the rage lately, but I've gifted their pillar candles and coasters to friends.
