Novica Gift Finder Review and $40 Gift Code #Giveaway




We live a blessed life.  We have two healthy happy children and are able to pay our bills and save.  In this economy we are a rarity.  While we still tighten our belts throughout the year I do like to splurge a little at Christmas.  Especially for my husband, because he works so hard but he is a tough-to-shop-for husband.  It gets harder and harder each Birthday, Fathers Day and Christmas.

While the logical answer would be to go for gadgets, my splurge budget doesn't always allow.  I like to look for unique gifts for him because it shows I have put a lot of thought into my gift buying.  Novica is a site that I often turn to.  Novica's Mission page states "Novica is Different".  This is certainly true.  While looking elsewhere online there are so many stores that offer the same thing.  Novica is unique that it offers artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity, so the gifts that you choose from Novica for you and your loved ones will truly set your gift apart from others.

Novica now offers a Gift Finder which allows you to narrow your search from their vast inventory.  Of course I went straight to "Gifts for Him" option.  Then I narrowed it down to the "Gifts by price" option because price can often be a deal breaker for me.  My husband loves opening gifts so I opted for the "Gifts under $50" which allows me to buy a few items.

 The chess set for $47.95 caught my eye instantly.  Since our kids are now getting into board games this chess set would be a great family game that we can teach the kids and also play against each other after the kids have gone to bed. I noted an artisan story card will be included with the purchase.  Its great to know that this item is not another "Made in China" product that infuriates me to no end but made by an artisan from Rajasthan.  I even learnt something new just from checking this product out.  I googled Rajasthan and found out that it is the largest state of the Republic of India by area. It is located in the northwest of India.

My little brother is autistic, and he's the hardest to buy for because he likes all sorts of quirky things so we always get him discovery things, like this year it's a telescope, last year he was into states and capitals, and he's also into sitting on google maps for HOURS. Hopefully he'll like stargazing :)

I think this is a great idea: http://www.heifer.org/ Heifer International allows you to buy (all or part of) an animal - cow, sheep, goat, etc. - that is sorely needed by various communities around the world.

We've done this and send cards out to friends and family telling them we've made the donation intheir names.

My son-in-law was disappointed that he missed getting a jar of old marbles at an auction so I found some and put them in a jar and gave them to him for Christmas.

Unique gifts... hmmm... sometimes that's hard to do when I used to do leatherwork and tooling, I used to make custom wallets for everyone...

Alison Jones said:

As a joke, my husband and I made a 'nudie christmas card' for my parents by using props (snowboard, scarf, etc) to hide our naughty bits. We took the photo outside in a snowbank in January, too, so it was really really cold.
