***Gift Idea*** Novica Review and Giveaway

 


Novica is a company that is dear to my heart. I have written several product reviews in the past and have remained a customer of theirs through the years. They call themselves the Impact marketplace because purchasing from them has a direct impact on the global artisans that create the array of products they have for sale. These artisans share their time, creativity and skills to create art pieces, and Novica offers the platform to sale them. To date Novica customers have helped send over 100 million dollars to artisans around the world! When you purchase from Novica you are not only receiving a one of a kind masterpiece, but you are helping empower people to share their crafts,  make money, and  improve their lives and the communities they live in.  

Since I first learned about Novica several years ago, they have expanded their marketplace with over 70,000 products. They carry everything from jewelry, clothing, housewares, clean beauty products, and they have kept up with the changing times and our now carrying a selection of unique face masks. Sewists from many regions including Thailand, India and Central America are putting needle to thread and creating fashionable face masks to do their part in keeping the world healthy. 


I was given anther opportunity to chose and review one of the many products available on Novica. Let me tell you, this was not an easy task. They have so many lovely things,  but I finally settled on this beautiful pitcher by artisans Javier and Efren in Mexico. 


Since the 1990's Javier Gutierrez and Efren Canteras have worked together on preserving Mexico's blown glass industry. I love the bubbling and variances of color shown in their creation. The pitcher has an ice chamber which is what really drew me to it. It is so unique and a the aquamarine color suits my kitchen perfectly. This pitcher will be great for keeping everything from sangria, margaritas, or lemonade cool, but not watered down. I love that Novica always includes a special thank you note with purchase. My postcard included a handwritten thank you in Spanish for supporting Mexico's artisans.  They also have this pitcher in this gorgeous lemon green color that would make a wonderful gift this holiday. 


The people over at Novica have also been generous enough to allow me to offer one Girly Girl reader the chance to win a $50 gift code to use on their site. This giveaway is open to US residents. Be sure your email is public so I can contact you if you win. This giveaway will end on November 27. Enter below and good luck!

Mama Palooza- Novica Review and Giveaway

CLOSED

From their website:

In the spirit of the Internet, let us bring you together.
NOVICA. The World is Your Market.

Novica offers some wonderful selections from artists in different regions of the world.  You can find a large variety of  handmade jewelry. From beautiful turquoise necklaces created in Mexico to amber studded earrings artfully made in India. They have some really gorgeous pieces that would make great Mother's Day gifts.  They also have some beautiful home decor. Things like photo frames, vases, and other unique gifts and collectible pieces to fit any one's style or personality.  

Since Novica allowed me the opportunity to review one of their products I decided to do a search for elephants on their site. My mother collects elephants and I was hoping to find her something that she would love. Guess what I did! After looking through all the creations I found this Ceramic Teapot, Elephant Green Tea.
With all the elephant figurines and trinkets my mom has I knew this one would be a unique piece to her collection. This lovely piece of art was handcrafted by artist Putu Oka Mahendra in Bali. It is dishwasher safe, microwave safe and lead and toxin free, but I really think my mom is just going to display it somewhere for all to see.

I was very impressed at how quickly I received this item from Novica, it was packaged with great care. When I received my package it was dented ( most likely done while in the shipping process ) and I feared the worse. I was pleasantly surprised to find my tea pot was completely protected and safe. I also received an artisan story card with a beautiful picture of Bali on it and thoughtfully signed.

All in all I think Novica is a great place to purchase something different. If you are interested in getting something for mom but still not sure what check out the suggestions for Gifts for Mom at Novica.

Mothers Day is just a few days away but there is still time to order a great gift for that special mother in your life. Novica has a large selection of Handmade Mothers Day gifts that are unique and beautifully crafted by artists all over the world. Everything from jewelery, one of a kind paintings, lovely vases to present your mom with their favorite flowers, and gorgeous hand woven scarves and shawls. I have worked with Novica on two separate occasions to share their artisan crafts with you and I always enjoy looking through all the items available. I have found so many things I love either for myself or for someone else. This time with Mothers Day coming up I decided to search for something for my mom. Lately she has been buying scarves and shawls for herself, it's her new thing. She has a few but none like the ones you can buy at Novica. These are hand woven with amazing detail and made from the finest materials. I decided to purchase this Cotton and Silk Shawl, "Indore Autumn" weaved in India.


I know she will love the color and style of this shawl.

Still looking for the perfect gift? Check out Novica, you are sure to find something that mom will adore. If you purchase by May 7, 2013 and use Premium Shipping the item is guaranteed to arrive by Mothers Day!

Novica is also allowing me to host a giveaway for one Girly Girl reader. One of you will win a $40 gift certificate to use towards anything you heart desires. This giveaway will end in 2 weeks but that's okay because Fathers Day is just around the corner and Novica also carries gifts for dad too!

Novica's Gift Finder & Giveaway

CLOSED
Winner# 28 bayctygrl
 
 

It's been awhile but I previously posted a review on Novica and their abundance of products. Novica carries truly unique items that are crafted by artisans all over the globe. Everything from jewelery to home decor. I really enjoy browsing all the art and reading about the artist behind the work. From the Andes, to West Africa, to Thailand it's like traveling the world and visiting local markets from the comfort of your home.

With Christmas just a couple weeks away why not look through Novica's extensive inventory to find the perfect gift for your friend or relative. With their new Gift Finder it is that much easier to find something that they are sure to love.  For instance looking for something for an animal lover? Let Novica narrow down there Gifts for Animal Lovers. I really like this Onyx Statuette Midnight Owl.


How about finding something special for the chef in your life? I really like this set of Cypress Wood Chopping Boards.

 
In addition to being able to search by personality, you can also narrow down your search by recipient, category, interest, price, and region. So go feast your eyes on all the lovely creations Novica has to offer.
