NOVICA REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

I am so excited I found this site.  They are not like other sites and they carry the items that you probably aren't going to find on any other sites!  They provide you with unique, hard-to-find items at great values!  They give artists and artisans around the world a place to sell their amazing products.  It took me quite a while to decide what I wanted to review, but with the upcoming holidays I decided to get something for my grandma.
My grandma is so hard to buy for, she is the sweetest most wonderful woman, and really has been more like a mother to me than a grandma, she has been there and helped me at times when I needed it most.  She is elegant, classy, and looks about 30 years younger than she really is (she doesn't even know this blog exists so I am not just saying this to make her feel good because she will never see it)!  So you can imagine how hard it would be to find anything that could match her class or beauty - Especially in my price range!

This is the necklace that I found her on Novica.   They have such beautiful Handmade Jewelry.  I just received it a couple days ago and it looks even better in person.  This necklace is handmade in Thailand and came with an Artisan Story Card and came in the beautiful gift box pictured below.  In the gift box there is almost like a little pillow that the necklace sits on.  Every aspect of this necklace clear to the box it is packaged in shows how much work and care went into this piece, I am sure my grandma will love it! 

Novica also sent me updates when the product was shipped, when it entered the U.S. and the U.S. Tracking Number, etc.  I love when companies keep you updated with where your product is and when you should get it!

Not only my product was wonderful but my whole shopping experience at Novica.com was amazing.  I would recommend using Novica.com to find any unique gifts you may want to purchase this holiday season (or to even grab yourself a little something!)

You may want to check out their Unique Gifts, Unique Corporate Gifts, and Gifts for her sections also!  Check out their Hammocks too - ahhh, relaxation in a hammock sounds so nice!


TO BUY:  To make a purchase through Novica or just to view their amazing selection head over to their website at Novica.com

TO WIN:  One lucky DirtyTruthReviews reader will win a $30 Gift Certificate Code to use at Novica.com!
