holiday2013bannerThere is always that one person on your list that is difficult to shop for and you spend hours at the mall searching for that perfect one-of-a-kind gift.  It’s times like these, that I turn to Novica.


Novica has a large selection of gifts including jewelry, clothing, home decor, paintings and more. At Novica, you can connect with the artisans from around the globe to find unique items at a great values.  Each item is handcrafted to showcase the artists talent and creativity.  Novica doesn’t charge artisans any fees to sell so the gifts you purchase truly help the artisan support their families and their love of crafting.

Novica has recently introduced their new Premium Gift Wrap, making holiday gift giving even better!  This isn’t you ordinary wrapping paper and bow gift wrap but the kind that stands out with it’s handmade elements, carefully crafter ribbons and beautiful brass plates.  Premium Gift Wrap is available on all products from Bali, Thailand and India with plans to expand to other regions in the near future.

I recently had the opportunity to expereicen the Premium Jewelry Gift Wrap from Novica.  I ordered a gorgeous wood and buffalo bone bracelet and selected the Premium Gift Wrap at check out.  When my package arrived, it did not disappoint.  The Premium Gift Wrap exceeded all my expectations!  Check it out!

IMG_9060My package was wrapped in natural paper enclosed in a gorgeous black fabric with gold accents.

IMG_9062Tied around the fabric was a stunning gold ribbon with a perfect bow.

IMG_9063At top the bow was a golden plate inscribed the the Novica Logo.  It didn’t stop there.  In the box, my bracelet was inside a beautiful gift bag and included a matching card with the details of the jewelry.

IMG_9070Finally, after unwrapping my gift, I came to my bracelet.  This is the third bracelet I have ordered from Novica (I also have pillows from there) and it certainly did not disappoint. 


The Rose Harmony bracelet is a wide bangle with a harmony of pink and rose hues.  Carved from sheesham wood, the bracelet is inlaid with neatly cut and dyed buffalo bone, creating a fabulous effect.  Isn’t it gorgeous?

IMG_9071The rose colored bone is seamless and looks exquisite in contrast to the sheesham wood.

IMG_9073I was worried that it wouldn’t fit my wrist but with an eight inch inner circle, it glided over my wrist effortlessly.

IMG_9075Between the Premium Gift Wrap and the Rose Harmony Bracelet, I was over the moon with my gift. The artist did an amazing job and created a quality work of art.

This would make a wonderful present for any woman on your list.  And the best part?  The entire order; bracelet, gift wrap and shipping was under $25!!!
