NOVICA Review and $50.00 GIft Card Giveaway - Ends 06-04-13

Print Friendly and PDF

A product sample was received for review. I was not paid in any form of cash for this posting. The opinions expressed are my own and were NOT influenced in any way. 


Do you love shopping for something unique?  Have you ever heard of NOVICA?  Well, if you haven't, let me tell you about NOVICA!  They features more than 30,000 limited edition and one-of-a-kind handmade works of art daily, ranging from artisan-crafted jewelry to handmade apparel to world-style home decor.  They have partnered with more than 2,000 extraordinary master artists around the world!  That alone, tells you the products at NOVICA are very unique, that's perfect for finding something for yourself or finding that special gift!

For this review I received a $50.00 Gift Code, so I decided to order the set of 6 Conical Drinking Glasses!  In my last review for NOVICA, I received the Pina Colada Glasses, that match the Conical Drinking Glasses.  The Conical Drinking Glasses are very well made and very sturdy.  They are quite a large glass, which is perfect for lemonade, juice, water, mixed drinks and beer, so they are perfect for entertaining!  They are handmade glasses by Javier and Efrén, featuring a delightful conical design.  The old-fashioned appearance of the glass is magnificently combined with a delicate lime-green rim.  Since each piece is handmade, shape and size can vary slightly and tiny bubbles may appear within the glass.  This exemplifies the hand-blown technique, making every piece a unique example of blown glass craftsmanship.

With summer right around the corner, there will be many fun social events and celebrations!  NOVICA has perfect handcrafted gifts for graduation, Father's Day, Weddings, House Warmings, Birthdays and any other gift giving event!  Unique gifts are so much more fun to give, than the traditional boring gifts.  Take a look at the NOVICA website and see for yourself!


Twelve years ago, NOVICA started their online, fair-trade marketplace based in Los Angeles, with offices in eight developing nations.  So, far NOVICA has succeeded in helping change the lives of more than 75,000 people in developing nations, including artisans and their dependents, uniquely helping each artisan earn personal recognition and real-world prices for their work.

Novica offers such an extensive gallery of unique gifts that they're certain it will enthrall and delight.  They have put together a versatile collection of hand-crafted treasures from artists around the world.  Don't know what to give that special someone?  NOVICA original and unique gift ideas will make it easier to decide!

If the occasion is a wedding or house warming party, you will find a veritable plethora of treasures in their home decor section.  Hand-blown glass vases and glassware; traditional ceramic tableware from around the world; artful sculptures, classic and modern, are but a few original fair trade gift suggestions.  If gifts for him are on your mind, go no further than the chess sets.  They range from traditional wood hand-carved styles, to contemporary urban crafted of recycled metals.  You'll also find cufflinks, rings and leather bracelets in their one-of-a-kind men's jewelry.

Show the women in your life, that she’s a treasure with a precious gift.  NOVICA’s boutique of jewelry gifts for women features cocktail rings, drop earrings, pearls and more—the types of gifts that will make her feel like a queen.  Each jewelry gift for her is unique and comes with an artisan story card, matching a history to its personality.  Jewelry expert Komang Widiana has earned several awards for his craft, one presented by the Governor of Bali, and two from the Industry Council of Bali.  A jewelry gift from Buana is made with a “specific procedure,” as he creates a different approach for each new motif.  These jewelry gifts for her are individually crafted with care, especially for the woman in your life!

Gifts for Dad

NOVICA's unique gifts for dad features the work and style of some of the most talented artisans worldwide, many with free gift wrapping.  One will find that they can’t wait to see their father surprised by these unique gifts, such as the sterling silver cufflinks by Shubhra Singh or the Indian wood chess set, ready for him to teach his ‘Winning Strategy.’  To encapsulate Dad’s strength, behold the roaring carved lions and dragons from Bali by Made Mudana and Ketut Suastawa.  The hand-carved king of the jungle mirrors the prodigiousness that is the lion, a symbol in ancient Egypt of protection and in India an emblem of nobility and determination, a fitting gift for dad.  Love is nurturing with a gift that gets him bundled him up in a knitted 100% earth toned alpaca men’s scarf by Raquel and Gregor designed with all the warmth of a cup of ‘Hot Chocolate.’

In their personal stories Novica artisans tell of the time they learnt their art from their fathers, who in turn learnt from their own fathers.  Today they share their works as original gifts for dads and grandads.  Their contributions to Novica's Gifts for Dad Gallery include paintings and sculptures; ceramic tequila sets and glass decanters; apparel and handmade jewelry for men.  No doubt fathers everywhere will appreciate the heartfelt value inherent in every gift.

Here are just a couple ideas for Father's Day Gifts
Throughout the ages one of Dad's assigned roles seems to have been the teaching of sports and games.  Chess and backgammon sets carved of wood or marble inlaid with gemstones are a thoughtful gift for dad to teach the next generation – their grandkids!  Indeed a wonderful way to preserve the family tradition.
