Give Global Gifts (AND Do Some Good!) with NOVICA This Holiday Season {+ a GIVEAWAY!}

Note: I received a gift card to facilitate this review, and one to give away (yay!). All opinions are honest and are my own.

Have you started shopping for the holidays yet? I’m trying to get a little bit of a head start in the coming weeks so that I’m not trying to squeeze it all in mid-December. A stress-free Christmas sounds like the perfect way to end 2020, doesn’t it?

Be sure and read all the way to the end of my post, where I’ll be telling you how you can win a $50 gift card to get a head start on your shopping!

Some people on my list are hard to shop for – I think we all have people like that on our lists, don’t we? For those people I like to hunt down items I know they’ll really love – unique things they couldn’t easily find themselves in local stores.

NOVICA is a company that makes it easy to find special things from all around the world. They connect you with artisans who make beautiful pieces – AND you are able to have a positive impact on their lives with your purchases. I first worked with NOVICA nine years ago, and I still adore the leather bracelet and bag I got back then.

This year NOVICA has all sorts of amazing gift options for people on your list. They even have a wide variety of face masks (who knew at the start of 2020 that these would become a hot accessory item?) – these are just two of the many choices they offer:

I decided I wanted to check out their jewelry, because I’ve actually been on the hunt for a new pair of stud earrings. I have three piercings in each earlobe, and I like to wear studs for my day-to-day look. I have been wanting some modern earrings, and I really had a hard time choosing between all the options on NOVICA’s site. I finally settled on these round sterling stud earrings, and I can’t wait to wear them.

They’re perfect. Simple and modern, something I can wear every day that will go with anything.

Beyond them being just what I was looking for, though, I love that I know these were crafted by a great artisan in Thailand, Wadarat Supasirisuk. I’m not one to go out globe-trotting at this stage in my life, so I’m really happy to be able to include these from around the globe into my jewelry.

I also found two beautiful bracelets from an artist in India, Neetu Barathi. I can see me wearing these daily – they’re dainty and feminine, and I love the smoky tone of the beads on each one. The first is a smoky quartz link bracelet, and the second is a labradorite and silver pendant bracelet.

NOVICA has much more than jewelry, though – they have sculptures, furniture, and all sorts of home decor, plus clothing, paintings, and even clean skin care products. Find special gifts this holiday season for anyone on your list – items from all around the globe that you can purchase from your living room.

Now, on to another thing I’m super excited about! I get to give away a $50 gift card to one of you so you can have your own fun shopping spree on NOVICA! I’m keeping it SUPER easy to enter – find details below:
