Novica's New Gift Finder Review & $30 GC Giveaway

Novica is a bustling online marketplace for global artisans to express their talents and offer their  wares for sale through the National Geographic network. Novica features an extensive gallery of limited edition and one-of-a-kind handmade gifts, from exquisite jewelry to handmade apparel to globally-inspired home accents. And all this is available at amazing values, delivered right to your door.

After browsing the Novica for a long time (the selection is incredible!) I decided on this classy Assam Constellation Sling Bag:


This cotton tote features crimson constellations on a midnight background and a sheeshasm wood button to close it, and is inspired by traditional Assamese sarongs. It arrived at my house beautifully wrapped with a personal note and story card from the artisan (Manjuri Hazarika of India) tucked inside. Novica wants you to know who you are buying from so you can create a connection with the artist and discover what inspires them. It's a really unique concept!

I like how comfortable the straps are on my shoulder; they are wide but lightweight. The inside is fully lined with a zipper-top pocket and even has a little compartment which is perfect for your cell phone or keys. I take this bag everywhere with me as a shopping tote. It saves some paper and plastic, and makes a striking statement!

This handmade treasure retails for $24.95! So for less than twenty-five dollars you can support a talented global artisan and snag something gorgeous for yourself or to give as a gift.

Speaking of gifts, Novica has a great Gift Finder on their website which helps you to find something perfect for anyone on your list, even those you would usually consider hard to buy for.

You can also become a “Curator” and display collections of your favorite items on Novica. It's fun to add items to your gallery as well as to browse “Curations” that other Novica customers have put together. Here's one example:

One of my favorite sections at the Novica website is their drinkware collection. Recently, I ordered a set of their blown-glass tumblers for a housewarming gift. No one glass is exactly alike:

Every day, one product at Novica is featured for up to 30% off in their Daily Deal. And you can save $7 on your first purchase with code SAVE7NOVICA at checkout. I hope you enjoy shopping there and supporting global artists as much as I do!


So, now that you've heard all about Novica, how about a giveaway?
