Novica and I are going to help you with your Christmas shopping!

in Giveaways

Congrats to Kathy, commenter #36…you’re the winner of the $50 Novica gift code! Have fun shopping!

Woo! I’m SO excited about this.

You may remember that I gave away a Novica gift certificate this past summer. Well, I’m happy to say that I’m here to do it again.

Novica is a National Geographic company that partners with artisans around the world, helping them to make a living and bringing fair-trade goods to you and me. I’m a fan of being frugal, as you know, but I also dearly love to spend my money in ways that help support causes I believe in, and paying people fair wages is definitely a cause I can get behind.

In addition to selling beautiful jewelry, Novica also sells accessories (women’s accessories and men’s too!)

Check out the scarves…love this gray one!

I really enjoyed the jewelry I got from Novica in August, so I used my gift certificate this time to order some more. I got a little something for Lisey, which I won’t show you just yet (she reads my blog sometimes!), and I also ordered a pair of earrings for myself. Aren’t they lovely?

If you’re looking for a really versatile earring, I highly recommend the Helix pair I chose this past summer.

I wear them alllll the time! They’re $24.99 and since they’re sterling silver, they’ll look good for years to come (unlike those cheap ones from other stores, which stay silver-looking for only a short period of time.)

I’ve pretty much been wearing them nonstop since August.

Check out all the great stuff Novica offers…I bet you’ll be able to find something for someone on your list!

Oh, and through the end of today, Novica.com is offering free shipping, and that’ll help your Christmas budget to go just a little farther.

300x250 NOVICA free shipping NOVICA

Plus, you can use the code SAVE5TODAY for $5 off any order, SAVE10TODAY for $10/$50 and SAVE20TODAY for $20/$100.

Even better, I’ve got a $50 gift code to give away to one of you!

To enter, visit Novica, and leave me a comment telling me what you’d like to buy with the $50.

I’ll randomly choose a winner in 48 hours so that the winner can hurry and get on with their holiday shopping! Don’t put off entering or you’ll miss out.

No purchase necessary. One entry per person. Winner will be chosen at random.

Disclosure: Novica provided me with a $50 gift code. I received no other compensation and all opinions are my own.

I would get a pair of earrings for my daughter. I like several different pair, so I’d have to spend some more time looking to decide what I thought she’d like best. It would be difficult to choose, I think, because they have so many great ones!

Reply

49 WilliamB December 7, 2011 at 8:59 am

So many possibilities. But the one that springs to mind, to be honest, is to free up $50 to buy cooked turkey or ham, so I could add a couple of “orphan” troops to my holiday dinner.

I would buy anything from the West Africa collection for my sister. She and her husband are currently in language school and leave for West Africa next spring. They’ll be gone another two years before they come home, but I know she’d love to decorate their new place with something like this. Then again, she could get it there a lot cheaper and no shipping! :)

There are few things better in the summer than cuddling in the hammock with some of my kids and lots of our books. Thanks again!

I definitely am looking at getting a clock, regardless of whether I win this or not! (If I did win, I’d give the gift certificate to my mom, so SHE can buy a clock!).

The spare bedroom is turning into a feminine, french-style room, with artistic details here and there. THIS clock would look fabulous: http://www.novica.com/itemdetail/index.cfm?pid=112736

i’ve been looking for some pearl earrings for a while now and I think these Pearl dangle earrings fit the bill just fine.

I browsed through a lot of pearl earrings, but I think what sold me most was the designer and the story behind them: “My wife helps me a lot… when I think of something beautiful, I think about her. She means everything to me” As if those words wouldn’t melt your heart, the designer,
whose name hints at a muslim faith states these earrings were inspired by a buddhist temple. With that kind of open and beautiful mentality, no wonder his creations are so lovely!

I love perusing their website; they have such wonderful things! I enjoy reading a bit about the artist or artisan on each item’s page. If I won the gift certificate I would buy: http://www.novica.com/itemdetail/index.cfm?pid=154724 for my husband. He and I love to play chess for a date night, and currently we go to a local sandwich shop and use their set (and order dinner, of course) because we don’t have our own set. I’d love to have a handcrafted one that we can use and teach our kids on. :-)

I could say I would buy something for myself, but in reality I will end up buying gifts for my family. Purses, scarves, and belts, oh my!!!! The choices are fantastic. Thanks for the giveaway.

If I could win the gift card code I would definitely get the pair of “firemen” statues for my mother. My mother is a firefighter and the bravest woman I know. She has been a firefighter for almost twenty years working at one of the largest fire stations in the United States. She works twice as hard as any man in her field proving a woman can do anything a man can do. I can’t afford to get her the gifts she deserves most years because frugality is as much of a choice as a necessary way of life for me. Most of the time my stepdaughter and younger siblings take precedent with the holiday budgeting and my parents’ presents end up being a nice home made card. I know she would love these pieces, they are a beautiful pair.

292 comments!!! I wonder if you’ll even have a chance to read mine. Thank you for the giveaway! I have hope that I’ll win. I looked at the Novica website for a little while and I really like one of the pair of earings that you got “Pearl dangle earrings” they look so different, feminine, and pretty! I live in an RV, so I can’t own much since the space here is very reduced, BUT I can always find room for a pair of earings. Anyway, right now I only have two pairs. ha! So, these pearl dangle earrings will be worn very very often. Then I can walk out of my RV and look all pretty and feminine. Thanks for the opporunity to win!

First of all, I LOVE the Helix earings and my ears are VERY sensitive (the holes start burning if I wear cheap earrings with no clear coat covering the metal) So i would FOR SURE get a pair of those. With the other half of the card I would buy my mom the Lapis lazuli beaded bracelet in Sea Song. It is totally her style and she would love it.
