Novica – Gift Guide Pick – Giveaway

var fbShare = {size: ‘small’,}

I have shared about Novica before on my blog, and just in time for holiday gift giving I’m going to share about them again!  This is a great online store to find everything from accessories to walking sticks!

This is why purchasing a gift from Novica this season is a win/win – many of the artists that provide Novica with the products on their site, receive microfinance loans, where Novica partners with everyday people (like you and me!) to allow them to grow their businesses.

Novica let me do a little holiday shopping of my own on their site this season, and I picked up these beautiful placemats for my dining room table.  I love that they came in a set of six, which is just how many places I have room for at my table.


I had a tough time choosing though because I was tempted to pick up a scarf for myself, I have a friend that lives in Bolivia and she tells me the alpaca wool scarves are so great, and then I started looking through the mens scarves for a gift for my husband.  But my more practical side won out and I got the placemats.

I’m thinking ahead to gifts after Christmas too.  My Dad has a birthday mid-January and I think the mens sterling silver cufflinks would make a great gift for the guy that has everything!  My dad loves to travel, enjoys other cultures and has a small woodworking business of his own, so I think knowing that his cufflinks gift also helped a businessman would make the gift even more appreciated.

Novica has also introduced another way to shop: at home, through NOVICA Live, similar to a “shopping party”, that you can host in your home with your friends and family.  You can also become a consultant in this unique direct sales business.  You can make money and at the same time support artisans worldwide.  They’re expanding across the United States right now and signing up new consultants every week.

The starter kits are $199 and have over $400 worth of samples and $150 in business materials.  They have a lot of promotions going on for their early consultants, including anyone that becomes a Director this year will go to Bali next year!!  You can learn more about Novica Live on their site.

One reader will win a $50 Novica Gift Code.  To enter the giveaway check out Novica and leave a comment telling me about something you saw that you would like for you or someone you love.
