Unique Mother's Day Gifts from NOVICA {$50 Gift Certificate Giveaway!}

NOVICA logo
When it comes time to purchase just the right gift for Mom for Mother's Day, I often struggle coming up with quite the right thing. After a while, the items in the store all start to look a little bit the same to me, so how do I find something that is unique and special enough that it shows my mom how much I care?

Therefore, when I am introduced to a website that connects me with thousands of master artists from around the world and gives me the ability to select from more than 30,000 handmade works of art, then I can relax knowing that I'll be able to find just the right piece from NOVICA.

NOVICA gifts

One of the leading fair trade artisan websites, NOVICA.com works with National Geographic to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market.

By offering thousands of limited edition and one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry, clothing, unique gifts, and home decor, you'll not only find items that are each stunning in their own way, but you'll be helping others by making your purchase.

NOVICA has already succeeded in helping change the lives of tens of thousands of people in developing nations, a number that I find both inspiring and extremely impressive. So while you may just think that the handbags or sculptures are lovely, NOVICA has provided a way for the artisans who created them to earn personal recognition and receive real-world prices for their work.

Now that just makes all of their great pieces even a little more beautiful, doesn't it?

And when it comes to all of their unique gifts for Mom, NOVICA truly makes it easy to honor her with a keepsake gift that she will always treasure.

unique gifts for mom

Whether your shopping list says Jewelry gifts for Mom, Sculpture gifts for Mom or you simply just want to put a smile on her face, NOVICA makes it easy to narrow your search to make it quick and easy to find an item that will work just right with your mom's personality.

I purchased these beautiful Blown Glass Tumblers for myself and couldn't be happier with how gorgeous they are in person!

handblown glasses

When it comes to shopping for a unique gift that is unusual, real-world as well as beautiful to behold, NOVICA has a huge selection that is sure to provide plenty of options. But, of course, the fact that by shopping there you can help make a difference in improving lives and preserving traditional crafts worldwide just means that you (or your recipient) can be even a little more satisfied with your purchase.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to browse all of the handcrafted works of art to choose their favorite or pick up a wonderful belated gift for Mom, because...

One lucky person will win a $50 gift certificate* to NOVICA!

NOVICA giveaway
*Gift certificate is in the form of an online gift code and will be valid until 6/24/13.


A big thank you to NOVICA for providing a gift certificate for me as well as for one lucky giveaway winner. The opinions shared are my own and honest and if you really need to see more, click here to see how I roll.

In recent years I've been buying my now 90 year old Mom exquisitely meaningful and graceful Sculptures from Novica for most special occasions (most recently Mother's Day!) But there were at least a dozen more / other "statuettes" (with in my price range!) that I would still love to give her while I can.

One is a lovely wood sculpture by Nyoman Karsa (Bali/Java) called "A Mother's Love."

Also I saw a metal sculpture that I would LOVE to give to my Honey/Hubby for Father's Day: he is an avid bicyclist and I think he would really enjoy having
