I have a new obsession and its called NOVICA - in association with National Geographic and to put it simply, it is like putting a small piece of National Geographic in your hands. Their philosophy is to create a bridge between us and the many artisans from around the globe. NOVICA wants us know who we're buying from, feel attachment to the product and to the hands that created it.
I didn't quite get the experience until I started window shopping on the site. Each piece has detailed information - size, weight, material and my favorite --- a picture of the artisan, a small bio and story behind the piece. It took me a week to finally decide on the pieces I wanted. After all there are over 30,000 handcrafted works of art. While I was narrowing down my choices I curated a collection of my favorites. You can curate your own collection board and enter to win a trip to Machu Picchu!
I am a huge fan of little details and the FREE gift wrapping on my Valentine's Day gift to Chris (and one I chose for both of us) was exquisite. The pieces were securely wrapped with bubble wrap and cardboard. I was beyond impressed. Even more impressive? They each came with a postcard!
I can't say enough about NOVICA, all around impeccable and this is where you need to spend your money to impress someone with a unique gift. If you aren't sold yet, I don't know what to tell you --- Here are my pictures to seal the deal.
