NOVICA: Great Unique Gifts! Review {Giveaway Closed}

NOVICA logo I have recently learned about the NOVICA website, and I am totally in love with it!  NOVICA is a shopping website that is in association with National Geographic.  However, instead of shopping for basic goods that you find at Target or Amazon, you shop for hand crafted items from artists and artisans around the world!  These items are amazing!  It is just like visiting a country and going through their markets, but at the convenience of your computer.  The best part of it is that you can actually learn about the artist who is making your items!
NOVICA has Tons of Unique Gifts!  Jewelry, like Sterling Silver Jewelry, Earrings, and Necklaces
This would be a great place to look for Valentines day Gifts for Her.
I love the options that they have – I fell in love with this hand blown cobalt pitcher – and so this is what I ordered.  It is very simple and quick to order – and even better, they are linked with amazon.com, so if you already have all of your information in their system, you just link up to amazon and your order will be processed!
Novica Cobalt Glass Pitcher The hardest thing is that I want to get the glasses for this pitcher SO bad, but they are currently not in stock.  I was assured that the glasses for this pitcher are a huge seller and will be back soon, so just to keep checking back.  We are moving into a new house in a week, so all the items in this website are so temping to me.  I’m sure we’ll be ordering more soon – they have mirrors and rugs and all sorts of other great household items that are amazing and at very reasonable prices for such beautiful pieces!
