This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Teresa, the winner of the $100 gift certificate.


NOVICA logo with black background

I’ve partnered with Novica a number of times before to bring you giveaways, so most of you are probably already familiar with this company.

But in case you’re new, here’s the deal.

Novica is a National Geographic company that partners with artisans around the world, giving them a global market for their wares. They also provide no-fee micro loans to the artists, which helps them buy the supplies they need in order to make their art and earn money (You can actually loan money to an artist through Novica as well!)

I love Novica because what they sell is so different than the mass-produced stuff you can buy at most retail stores. It comes from a person, an artist, not from a factory in China. In fact, many times my Novica orders have come with a hand-written thank you note from the artist.

The prices are a little higher than what you’d pay at Kohl’s or Claire’s Boutique, but the quality is so much better. As you know, I love to buy things that last because in the end, they’re actually the more frugal choice.

I’d rather own a few well-made, ethically obtained items than a bajllion poorly made items from a sweatshop.

Plus, not everything at Novica is crazy expensive. Here’s a collection of handmade gifts under $50. And here’s a collection of gifts under $30.

Novica also offers a daily deal, featuring one item at a steep discount. Check it out…you can save up to 50%.

Over a year ago, I ordered this beautiful sterling silver bracelet, and I wear it all the time.

And I also got these earrings, which I wear constantly as well.

I honestly think I’ll wear these for the rest of my life. And I may be able to hand them down too, which makes me happy (Woohoo for heirloom quality purchases!)

I also own an anklet from Novica and a pair of lovely pearl earrings. Lisey has some Novica earrings too, which are great for her sensitive ears.

The workmanship on everything I’ve ordered has been great, and the pieces are both durable and beautiful. Really, I can’t say enough good things about Novica!

Novica doesn’t just sell jewelry, though…you can buy clothing, accessories, and home decor as well.

When you’re doing your holiday shopping this year, do check out what Novica has to offer. Your gift recipient will love the beauty and quality, and you can feel good about supporting an artist.

(speaking of which, Aoy is one of my favorite artists on Novica. Go check out the lovely jewelry she makes!)

_____________________________________________

One lucky reader will be able to go on a $100 shopping spree because Novica is giving a $100 gift certificate to one of you.

To enter, visit Novica’s website, pick something you love, and then come back here and leave a comment telling me what you chose.

This giveaway is open to anyone around the world, since the gift certificate is electronic. So, international readers, enter away!

One entry per person please.

Novica is providing the $100 gift certificate, but I was not paid to write this post or provided any product in conjunction with this review.

The giveaway will close at midnight, EST on Sunday, November 11th.

I would choose the Tropical Elegance bracelet. There are SO MANY BEAUTIFUL bracelets on the NOVICA website that it’s impossible to really pick just one!

2 JenB November 10, 2012 at 7:12 am

I’m always in need of new tops. I really like the Cotton top, ‘Cuzco Navy Empress’. Classy, but casual.

3 Susan November 10, 2012 at 7:39 am

As others have said, it’s difficult to choose, but I think my daughter would love the moonstone earrings ‘shining cloud’. I think they are just lovely!

4 Mary-Ellen November 10, 2012 at 7:41 am

Hello,

I love the blog! I am a new reader of only a few months but I find so many of your ideas neat. I agree, quality far outweights the price if it is something that will stand the test of time.

I would love to have a pair of “flutter” drop earrings from the site. I might just hint this to my husband.

5 Bridget November 10, 2012 at 7:55 am

I love the
Cultured pearl strand necklace, ‘Perfect Peace’

6 Sarah G. J. November 10, 2012 at 7:58 am

7 Megan Bayford November 10, 2012 at 8:01 am
8 Becky Verryt November 10, 2012 at 8:02 am

I would choose a kite or a drum for the family. I agree with everyone else, it’s hard to choose just one thing. Everything is beautiful.

9 Janet November 10, 2012 at 8:02 am

I would choose the Silk batik scarf, ‘Javanese Flower’.

10 theresa November 10, 2012 at 8:03 am

i would pick the piura flora ruana to cover my pregnant belly!

11 WB November 10, 2012 at 8:08 am

I have my eye on those lovely throw blankets…it seems like all you can find anywhere else are soft fabrics and I want something with more substance.

12 Stephanie November 10, 2012 at 8:09 am

I would pick the blue elephant tea set for two.

13 Pam November 10, 2012 at 8:26 am

I love the monthly flower/birthstone jewelry–perfect for gifts (or me!)

17 Crystal November 10, 2012 at 8:30 am

I think I’d get a black pearl necklace (always wanted one!) Sophistication is jumping out at me currently.

18 Lisa @ Cents To Save November 10, 2012 at 8:31 am
19 aruna November 10, 2012 at 8:40 am

I really like the pearl and blue topaz dangle earrings. They have beautiful stuff. Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

20 Sue-Ellen November 10, 2012 at 8:40 am

So many good options! I really love this cocktail ring, though: http://www.novica.com/itemdetail/index.cfm?pid=182743

23 Eliza November 10, 2012 at 8:45 am

This is a hard choice! I’ll say the Sterling silver dangle earrings, ‘Fire Dancer’ but the Sterling silver flower earrings, ‘Dandelions’ are a close second!

24 Kate Deals November 10, 2012 at 8:46 am

I love the Sterling Silver Cuff bracelet.

25 Meredith Phillips November 10, 2012 at 8:50 am

Wow, I love this website!! It’s so hard to choose just one or two things because everything is gorgeous! I think I would have to go with the sterling silver Chinese rabbit necklace. I love bunnies :)

27 Summer November 10, 2012 at 8:54 am

28 Kate November 10, 2012 at 8:58 am

I’ve always wanted one of these woven cotton hammocks, and this one is a great colour.

http://hammock.novica.com/rope/cotton-hammock-riviera-sapphire-double/187861/

But the jewellery is nice too, I especially like the silver pieces.

29 Linda H. November 10, 2012 at 9:03 am

30 WilliamB November 10, 2012 at 9:08 am

A nice game set – maybe backgammon.

31 Adrienne November 10, 2012 at 9:13 am

Hi there, and thanks for introducing my to Novica, it will be great for holiday gifts! I loved some of the serving wear, especially the Celadon Serving Platter. This would look great in my mom’s kitchen.

32 Starr @ The Kiefer Cottage November 10, 2012 at 9:15 am

Everything on the website is beautiful! But I have to admit, I think I’m in love with that silver bracelet you’re wearing above!

36 Joanna November 10, 2012 at 9:20 am

There is so much to choose from, a great place for gifts, too! I really liked the “Elephant Journeys” necklace, it’s simple and one of a kind. Would love having that or choosing something else, you can’t really go wrong here!

37 Nestra November 10, 2012 at 9:22 am

I would buy the helix earrings to replace a pair my mom had that she lost one of the two.

38 Ruth November 10, 2012 at 9:28 am
39 Jennifer November 10, 2012 at 9:28 am

Love, love, LOVE the sterling silver love knot ring! I had one as a teenager, and seeing it brought back so many memories! I’d love to get one for my daughter!

40 Meeka November 10, 2012 at 9:31 am

I love the “Mirror, ‘Birdsong at Night” and would love to win the $100 to purchase it!

41 Mary Ann November 10, 2012 at 9:31 am

I love the silver ribbon twist choker.

42 Wilma November 10, 2012 at 9:31 am

I would poss choose a skirt, but even at this point i didn’t totally decide. Most of all i would want to bless one of my family members with a gift of their choice. That would be so much fun!
Thanks!

43 Laura D. November 10, 2012 at 9:33 am

I love the agate wrap bracelet ‘forest flower’. So beautiful, simple and natural looking!

44 Denise November 10, 2012 at 9:35 am

I’ve been looking for something like the Guatemalan Blue Cotton Table Runner. It would bring a nice pop of color to my table.

45 Skirnir Hamilton November 10, 2012 at 9:36 am

Before I made a final decision, I would have to talk to the rest of the family and see where we are moving to. But I like the area rugs, the chess sets and the sweaters. Just wonder if I won’t wear sweaters much in TN.

46 Rebecca K November 10, 2012 at 9:36 am

Just one item…well…I don’t know if I can pick just one. I really like a lot of the jewelry on this site. I am also into furniture, which I baulk at purchasing online, but there are some lovely things. I haven’t even looked through everything yet though!

47 Jenny C November 10, 2012 at 9:40 am

I would choose something unique. When I see it will be “YES”!

48 jen November 10, 2012 at 9:40 am

The celadon vases are beautiful. I love the “Autumn in my heart” one!

49 Annette W November 10, 2012 at 9:42 am

I would love to get the dangle earring “Ping River Flows. and look for earring for my granddaughter who also has sensitive ears.

50 Joan November 10, 2012 at 9:44 am

I love the Moonbeam earrings and the silver you chose, I think the silver earrings are beautiful

51 Cheryl S. November 10, 2012 at 9:46 am

My sister would love the silk batik shawl “Brave Java”…

52 Denise November 10, 2012 at 9:48 am

Very hard to pick just one item for a wish list, I would choose the sterling silver bangle bracelet gold torch since it would signify the bright light still shining even though my family faced tough life challenges this year.Thank you!

53 Joyce November 10, 2012 at 9:50 am

Alright! I chose a women’s dress called “Casual Chocolate” by Tomomi. I like this giveaway!

54 KTinWV November 10, 2012 at 9:51 am

I really like the “Timeless Dancer” gold-plated, natural orchid earrings by Danai. They are beautiful, as is Danai’s other jewelry!

55 Kelsey November 10, 2012 at 10:00 am

I would probably choose one of the beautiful chess sets. My husbands loves chess and really wants me to learn. It would make a great Christmas gift!

56 Kat November 10, 2012 at 10:01 am

A hammock. I got a little coffee table book about them and I’ve been wanting one ever since. Whenever a friend of mine has his up I go visit just the sit and lay in it.

57 Laura November 10, 2012 at 10:02 am

I love the sterling silver band ring ‘together’

58 laura November 10, 2012 at 10:03 am

Faithfully read your blog and love your ideas and tips. Enjoyed knocking about the Novica site — I’m sure I’ll go back for more! I’d chose the 100% alpaca cardigan, ‘Nazca Winter’.

59 Meredith November 10, 2012 at 10:04 am

You’re right; Aoy’s jewelry is stunning! I particularly love her earrings: “Joyous Dancer”, “Early Rain”, and “Pirouette”. “Pirouette” is probably my favorite. Would love to win this!

60 Sarah November 10, 2012 at 10:06 am

It’s so hard to pick, but I always like things from their holiday collection (I’m currently perusing the Nativity scenes).

61 Jill November 10, 2012 at 10:08 am

Seriously, what’s not to love over there? I am particularily drawn to the red silk scarf called Tamarind in Red. Gorgeous.

62 Ada November 10, 2012 at 10:09 am

I would choose the “Cotton Candy” silver drop earrings. They are gorgeous and would go with so many casual and dressy outfits I have.

63 Jill November 10, 2012 at 10:13 am

Love the precious she elephant sterling silver cuff bracelet! Great site, I will be doing some shopping.

64 Lauren November 10, 2012 at 10:15 am

I’d like the wooden nativity scene, Petite Christmas. It’s so beautiful.

65 Kim C November 10, 2012 at 10:15 am

I LOVE the Dragon Eye ring! It’s gorgeous! I think the hardest thing about
NOVICA could be narrowing the choices down. They have some really pretty stuff. I also saw a sculpture I would love to have, a couple of jewelry boxes and a belt made from pop tops! Hmmm, might have to do some Christmas shopping there. I would love to win the gift certificate!

66 Pamela smith November 10, 2012 at 10:18 am

Love the table linens! I like to have a beautiful table!

67 The Greatful Mom November 10, 2012 at 10:18 am

What a great website! I LOVE the wood djembe drum with the symbol that means “fear none but God”–I would LOVE a chance to order that!

68 Noreen November 10, 2012 at 10:20 am

I really liked the Jade heart bracelet, ‘Soul Mate’ made in Central America.

69 Donnita November 10, 2012 at 10:26 am

Marcasite and garnet pendant necklace, ‘Perfect Owl’
Novica has beautiful items and I love their mission concept! Owls are my “thing” and garnet is special to me because it is my son’s birthstone. :-)

70 Jasmyn November 10, 2012 at 10:29 am

I think some of the handbags are really cute.
Or I’m always a sucker for stationary!

71 Beth M. November 10, 2012 at 10:31 am

I love the jewelry made by the artist Aoy, especially the “on the ball” and helix earrings.

72 Amanda November 10, 2012 at 10:33 am

so much to choose from! my taste is pretty similar to yours, silver with simple and elegant lines. I’d love some new earrings!

73 Rachel B November 10, 2012 at 10:36 am

I like their scarfs and bags and I’d get some Christmas gifts too! What a nice giveaway!

74 Dianna November 10, 2012 at 10:36 am

I love the ‘Rose Floral’ Cotton Blouse.

75 kristina November 10, 2012 at 10:37 am

I love the “distraction” silver stud earrings. They’re like a prettier version of a pair I had (and wore every day!) that got lost/destroyed. If I wasn’t so eager to have a pair that could serve the same purpose as those (elegant, simple, versatile everyday + special occasion earrings), I’d have been tempted, too, by many of the sterling cuff bracelets.

76 Roxy Pittman November 10, 2012 at 10:44 am

I chose the stealing silver ‘infinity’ earrings by Victor Williams. They are so simple but beautiful. I love jewelry that is not too big and flashy but is beautifully simple none the less.

77 Kristen November 10, 2012 at 10:44 am

I love everything! I saw a pearl pendant necklace called “white coral” that I love!

78 Rachel November 10, 2012 at 10:45 am

I need a pair of good silver earrings – I love yours, Kristen.

79 Tiffany November 10, 2012 at 10:47 am

I would choose the alpaca cinnamon cap because it looks incredibly warm, and I collect hats. Where I live, we’ve already had snow and temperatures in the low 20s. That hat would keep me warm.

80 Amy November 10, 2012 at 10:55 am

There are so many things I like!

81 Melissa November 10, 2012 at 10:59 am

I like the Garnet dangle earrings Glowing Exotic. Thanks for the great giveaway!

82 Eva November 10, 2012 at 11:01 am

Wow! What a great website! I love all of their Christmas tree ornaments – so much more unique than what you see in the big box stores. And I love that they’re handmade! I think my favorite is the set of 4 blue ceramic parakeet ornaments.

83 Stephanie November 10, 2012 at 11:01 am

I would get the Starlight Snowflake anklet!

84 Arianna W. November 10, 2012 at 11:03 am

85 Molly F. C. November 10, 2012 at 11:03 am

Marcasite and garnet Little Owl necklace. Darling!

86 Anne Weber-Falk November 10, 2012 at 11:04 am

I like the necklaces, especially a few of the crosses. I also like the earrings. I would get something for my daughters. There are so many nice things.

87 JoeAnn November 10, 2012 at 11:05 am

I love the scarves on there so fingers crossed – would love some help with that purchase!

88 Cheri November 10, 2012 at 11:05 am

I think I’d choose the Teal Garden Wool Flap Handbag, but I’m not sure, since there are so many wonderful things in the Novica collection!

89 Tina November 10, 2012 at 11:06 am

Leather and jade heart necklace, ‘Heavenly Love’

90 Felicia November 10, 2012 at 11:06 am

I think I would get the Alpaca blend sweat,black Charisma. I have been eyeing it for some time. I would probably get a great necklace or earrings to go with it also.

91 mo November 10, 2012 at 11:13 am

I saw a pair of beautiful owl earrings.

92 Hanna November 10, 2012 at 11:15 am
93 VaNessa November 10, 2012 at 11:17 am

I love the Iolite and Topaz Solitaire ring on Novica. We are looking for a Promise ring for our daughter.

94 Katy November 10, 2012 at 11:18 am

I LOVE the silk shawls by Yuni Kristina. Got two for dear friends last year (because of finding Novica through you, FG, which shows their giveaways work to bring new customers) and this year would get one for myself.

95 Kira November 10, 2012 at 11:21 am

I’d probably choose the Filigree Butterfly earrings, so pretty.

96 Mary November 10, 2012 at 11:26 am

So much to choose from. Thanks for recommending this site, I wouldn’t have known about it except for you.

97 Ann S. November 10, 2012 at 11:27 am

The jewelry pieces would make nice Christmas gifts for all the ladies in my family. I bought my sister some earrings for her birthday earlier this year, and she loved them!

98 sos November 10, 2012 at 11:29 am

I would choose Mahogany decorative chair, ‘Denkyem Boh’ coz I am looking to buy one

Hard to choose my favorite, but I think I would buy the gold accent dangle earrings, “Lion Hero”.

101 Tara November 10, 2012 at 11:39 am

I absolutely love the onyx link bracelet”Jaipur Heritage’ by Bhavesh! There were so many wonderful things to choose from… now I am looking forward to doing some holiday shopping there!

102 Amy Dunn November 10, 2012 at 11:43 am

Tough to choose. But I admire the coconut shell drop earrings. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

103 Diane Needham November 10, 2012 at 11:45 am

I chose a citrine solitaire ring for my granddaughter who is turning 16. We’ve talked about abstinence as she has a steady boyfriend and she has agreed to make it a promise ring.

104 Hydra November 10, 2012 at 11:46 am

I like the lamps, the lanterns in particular. Here’s one I might choose: http://lamps-and-lighting.novica.com/lanterns/cotton-lantern-crimson-mandala-beehive/188750/

105 Jen November 10, 2012 at 11:46 am

There are lots of earringstolove–the lapis and pearl drop ones for example. And the Indian paisley ones would be a perfect holiday gift for my niece!

106 Tina November 10, 2012 at 11:52 am

I LOVE the nativities–especially the Wood Retablo in blue and Retablo ‘Jesus Spoke of Peace’ –very different take on a traditional ones we have!

107 Ridge Girl November 10, 2012 at 11:52 am

I love the leather pendant necklace, ‘Brown Quechua Minimalist’!

108 teresa November 10, 2012 at 11:54 am

109 Terri November 10, 2012 at 11:57 am

Lone the silver bangles. Ubud moon – just sounds elegant. Really lots of lovely things.

110 Nan November 10, 2012 at 11:59 am

I’m a simple girl and my work requires a certain style of earring. So I would choose the sterling silver Bali Blossoms. They are absolutely gorgeous!

111 Mom of 4 November 10, 2012 at 12:12 pm

What a wonderful organization! I wasn’t familiar with then, and throroughly enjoyed browsing through their selection. I really like the “Truth” bracelet, and I know my daughters would find many special items they would love. So much nicer than what they sell at the mall! Thanks for sharing.

112 Marcy November 10, 2012 at 12:13 pm

I’ve recently started wearing silver again, and I need some new silver earrings.

113 Cheryl November 10, 2012 at 12:14 pm

I love the citrus coloros in the Carnelian chandelier earrings, ‘Drizzle’!

115 Jackie November 10, 2012 at 12:22 pm

Everything is beautiful! I would pick the Natural leaf gold-plated earrings, ‘Forest Duet’. They are really unique!

116 Jen November 10, 2012 at 12:37 pm

I would love the Blue Moon, Pearl Dangle Earrings. They are SO pretty, simple and are exactly the kind of jewelry I love – they’d be lovely for dressy outfits, and pretty with jeans and a sweater, something I’d get a lot of wear out of.

117 Nicole November 10, 2012 at 12:44 pm

I love the leather passport holder, ‘Membumi Traveler’. They call it a passport holder, but I just want to use it as a clutch with great boots!

118 elizabeth November 10, 2012 at 12:44 pm

I normally never enter contests because I’m very picky about my stuff but these last couple days there are contests right and left for AWESOME things I would love to have and be proud to give – and basically everything on Novica qualifies! However, mancala would be what I would want for myself – it is my favorite game!

119 Gillian November 10, 2012 at 12:49 pm

It would have to be jewellery! If a pendant the blue topaz “˜Star of Truth’. If earrings: so many to choose from, the “˜Perfection’ Pearl Button earrings are lovely, as are the “˜Rainbow Teardrops’ Moonstone dangle earrings. The topaz floral earrings “˜Bali Belle’ are also very pretty…

120 Pam H November 10, 2012 at 12:50 pm

I would pick the Murano handblown paperweight, ‘Ruby Elephant.’

121 Chelle W. November 10, 2012 at 12:51 pm

I would choose the Marcasite & Garnet “Little Owl” necklace as a present for my daughter whose 15th birthday is in just a few short weeks :).

122 Leslie November 10, 2012 at 12:53 pm

I love jewelry but always feel bad buying it for myself. If I won the $100 I would get these.

125 Dinah November 10, 2012 at 1:09 pm

I like the Sea Current earrings. They are really pretty and I could wear them with many things.

126 Maureen November 10, 2012 at 1:10 pm

I like some of the table lamps cause that’s what I need. I particularly like the Light of Dreams table lamp.

127 Mary K. November 10, 2012 at 1:16 pm

I’d choose some of the beautiful blown glassware–love it!

128 Kara D November 10, 2012 at 1:18 pm

I love the Gossamer Violet Scarf.

129 KatE November 10, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Wow – I’ve never seen such high quality *and* affordable rugs like these, not even when I was actually in India! I would totally get the Wool rug, Floral Minuet!

130 Natalie November 10, 2012 at 1:21 pm

I love all the knit tops they have. Also, I love that you’re featuring a non-sweatshop shopping option. I have been researching how to buy clothing NOT made in sweatshops, so this is really exciting for me.

131 Mrs. R. November 10, 2012 at 1:37 pm

There are SO many gorgeous piecies….hmmm…I really like the
Sterling silver dangle earrings, ‘Twirling Ribbons’

Thank you for the entry. :-)

132 Sandy in NJ November 10, 2012 at 1:40 pm

I really like the Gond painting “Sacred Cows”.

I just checked out the website and there are so many beautiful things that it is very difficult to pick just one item. I really like the idea that each item is hand made and the money raised by selling the items goes to the artisan. Each piece is unique and beautiful. If I won the gift certificate I would be sure to purchase a few special pieces and share where I purchased each item from. It is me and my twin’s birthday this week and I would share the gift certificate with her.

134 Lindsay November 10, 2012 at 1:55 pm

I love the Blue Ocean Dream pendant. My mother and I share our jewelry and this would be perfect for both of us.

135 Shaylin Morgan November 10, 2012 at 2:02 pm

I love the raindrop tear dangle earrings – we live in the rainy NW – so these seem fitting ;)

136 Libby November 10, 2012 at 2:05 pm

I love the “radiant paisley” wool scarf. The colors are gorgeous and it would keep me warm while being stylish!

137 Lauren November 10, 2012 at 2:05 pm

I’d like the “Cobra Guardian” earrings!

138 Terry November 10, 2012 at 2:26 pm

I love the earrings you show above the bracelet, but I did not see them under Aoy’s section at NOVICA. Thanks for such a great place to shop and more. I’d love to win. There was an ankle bracelet, and a scarf, and, and, no way can I choose one thing. I’m going back right now!

139 K D Y November 10, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Definitely the Moon Dancer anklet! I like to purchase pieces that work together and with many outfits and this seems like a good fit. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

144 Christina Flinn November 10, 2012 at 3:09 pm

Hi. I would choose the solitare pearl ring ‘moondrop’. Classic and beautiful! I would get two so that I could pass them on to my two daughters when they are older. Living in Australia it is so exciting to have a give away I can enter, thank you! I really enjoy reading your Blog.

150 Sloan November 10, 2012 at 3:19 pm

155 Amy November 10, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Oh my goodness, they have so many beautiful things…it’s hard to choose but the bracelet “Charisma” would be my pick, although it is more than the $100 win!
Thanks for the great giveaway!

156 Kim November 10, 2012 at 3:47 pm

I think the “Gaya Garden” handbag is fun! Thanks!

157 Floortje November 10, 2012 at 3:54 pm

I’ve seen a beautiful alpaca-shawl which can be worn several ways and will be very useful this winter. Unfortunetly, it didn’t fit my budget, so I would love to win this great prize,

158 Corinne Nabors November 10, 2012 at 4:10 pm

Wow! I am so excited you shared this website. The beautiful art, jewelry, and beautiful handmade textiles have me memorized by the rich colors and unique artistry. I am so sorrowfully inartistic and have had to remind myself repeatedly while clicking on page after page not to covet such talent. I cannot pick one favorite piece. Some top favorites are: 1. Artist Nikom’s Saa paper notebooks, ‘Following Autumn’ (set of 3) 2. Artist Tumthong’s Saa wrapping paper, ‘Blossoming Garden’ 3. Artist Desak Nyoman Parwati’s Women’s batik robe, ‘Kissed by Crimson’ 4. Artist Wayan Asmana’s Amethyst pendant necklace, ‘Queen of Bali’ 5. Maya Artists of the Yucatan’s Cotton hammock swing chair, ‘Pate’ (large deluxe).

159 AnnMarie November 10, 2012 at 4:17 pm

167 Natalie November 10, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Hi Kristen,
After reading your post last Fall about NOVICA, I ended up ordering a set of earings and a necklace that were birthday gifts from my husband and son. I think the Pearl anklet, ‘Snow Dancer’ is beautiful and would probably choose that to add to my NOVICA collection this year! :)

168 Amy November 10, 2012 at 4:56 pm

I love the earrings that you wear all the time, but I think I’d go for the “Moonlight Magic” necklace. It’s so pretty, but also simple enough that I could probably wear it everyday.

169 Lindsay November 10, 2012 at 4:56 pm

It’s just so hard to choose just one. Loving the elegance bracelet and the silver earrings. :)

173 Jennifer November 10, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Well it isn”t close to $100 but I would for sure get the Beaded cotton batik shoulder bag, ‘Worawari Bouquet’ and then have fun shopping to use the rest of the credit.

Thanks!!

174 Debbie November 10, 2012 at 5:04 pm

192 susan Lewis November 10, 2012 at 6:40 pm

193 Chris November 10, 2012 at 6:42 pm

What a great giveaway! I am ordering a gift for all of my children from the site especially since my oldest 2 are adopted. With Gabriella’s family being from Mexico, she is getting a mexican purse. Dante is getting something from Africa (since his birthmom is from there) and for Isaac I will find a special toy for him.

210 kristin @ going country November 10, 2012 at 8:01 pm

Ooo, bracelets. I don’t have any nice bracelets. I dig the one you have, but also the “Precious She-Elephant” cuff. And not just because of the name. :-)

230 BethJoy November 10, 2012 at 9:32 pm

First, I would choose the colorful table game, Marble and onyx Chinese checkers, ‘Colorful Contrast’ by the Sierra Family in Mexico.

It’s a beautifully crafted stone game set that I believe our family would gather around and enjoy hundreds of times, creating warm family memories.

http://www.novica.com/itemdetail/index.cfm?pid=50568

Richly veined marble, deep rose marble and sleek black onyx, plus three varied tones of natural stone…quality stone sculpting by the Sierra family would be beautiful and inviting in our home! “Grandma” was the expert Chinese Checkers player in our family, and she loved to engage her grandchildren in various table games, but most especially Chinese Checkers…this game would fondly remind us of her sweet hospitality and her love for spending happy days with her family.

231 Judy November 10, 2012 at 9:46 pm

Many beautiful choices, but I would choice the Gothic lace cross necklace since all my necklaces were taken when our house was broken into this summer.

232 Bambi Mayer November 10, 2012 at 9:52 pm

242 Deb November 10, 2012 at 10:50 pm

253 Sarah November 11, 2012 at 12:13 am

There are so many items that I would love to have myself or give to others. The one that drew me in was the set of glass vases called “Amethyst Hurricane”. There are a few people I can think of that would love to receive that set!

254 csugasuga November 11, 2012 at 12:31 am

Hello Frugal Girl! I love so many items on the Novica page, but the Radiant Nature Fibert baskey caught my eye at 49.95!

255 Amy November 11, 2012 at 12:38 am

I love the Mahogany bird ‘Peace’ wall art.

256 Sarah November 11, 2012 at 12:49 am

The floral reign earrings are lovely.

257 Kristyna November 11, 2012 at 1:06 am

I would definitely pick the “lingering turtle” teapot… and blue infinity scarf!

Love quality items that support the artists. (and not our disposable culture)

Kristyna :)

I usually decorate with things from my travels, so I eagerly looked through the wall art beautiful choices. Then I found the drinkware! Gorgeous dotted blue martini glasses need to be mine.

266 Bobbie November 11, 2012 at 4:08 am

I would choose the ‘Golden Camel’ poncho by Alfredo Falcon. It looks so soft and cozy and it’s on sale! I watched the video that explained his products and I knew I wanted one of his items when he said that when he was little, he told his father that he wanted a sweater. His father said make one yourself. He did. It took him two days and he said he has been knitting ever since. Such passion is a joy to see!

267 Susan November 11, 2012 at 5:52 am

I would have to say my favorite is the circle of love or the sister to sister. Beautiful items!

268 margie s November 11, 2012 at 6:46 am

I love the batik scarves

278 Chrissy November 11, 2012 at 8:59 am

The sterling silver bracelet titled ‘Spellbound’ I love good quality silver jewelry that you can wear with any outfit. However if I won I would probably end up using the gift card towards Christmas presents for others.

279 Holly November 11, 2012 at 9:09 am

What a beautiful site! I would LOVE the Modern Contrasts leather handbag!

281 Laurie November 11, 2012 at 9:38 am

My daughter would really enjoy the Chalcedony& silver wrap bracelet “Universal Harmony”

282 Amanda November 11, 2012 at 10:15 am

What a great giveaway! I love the “Blue topaz dangle earrings, ‘Sublime’” – so pretty!

283 Rachael November 11, 2012 at 11:11 am

Another great giveaway for a great cause! I am finding it impossible to choose between the Saa paper parasol in “Raining Elephants” and the palm-and-bone-link bracelet, which reminds me of a bracelet my husband gave me when we were dating that has been lost for years.

284 jacqui November 11, 2012 at 11:14 am

I went to the Novica site looking for gifts for my daughters. Then I started noticing things I love! But I finally landed on something for my step-mom. She and my dad loved traveling to Mexico when they were younger and The Aztec Star necklace from Mexico would be a sweet reminder of those trips!

285 StephaniePH November 11, 2012 at 11:17 am

Love all the variety! I’d choose the pearl floral bracelet called Snow Blossom for myself and then use the balance on Christmas gifts. Thanks for the opportunity.

286 Angela November 11, 2012 at 11:22 am

The dandelion earrings from Aoy. Beautiful.
Thank you for the giveaway opportunity.

287 Kimberly November 11, 2012 at 11:55 am

I’m in love with the cocktail ring “In Silence”……so different!!!!

288 Paige November 11, 2012 at 12:12 pm

I love the Sterling Silver “Love Knot” bracelet and the “Thai Bamboo” band ring. Right now my daughters are learning the hard way that if you don’t take care of things they can be taken away, so I’m going to be a little selfish…if I won I’d purchase something FOR ME!!!

289 Amanda November 11, 2012 at 12:14 pm

I’d love the teal Alpaca sweater – just in time for winter!

290 Elona November 11, 2012 at 12:18 pm

I would love to buy the Natural rose flower earrings, ‘Scarlet Romance’ , they’re beautiful. :)

291 Sherry November 11, 2012 at 12:24 pm

I love Novica and these earrings are great: Prasiolite dangle earrings, ‘Light of Love.’ Thanks for the opportunity!

292 Bess November 11, 2012 at 1:24 pm

I would choose the Sterling silver anklet, ‘In Diamonds’ because the design is simple, yet it has a big impact! Kind of like me :)

293 Lesley Phillips November 11, 2012 at 1:37 pm

I would love the Whirlpool beaded rattan basket. Thank You for the chance

294 Alissa A November 11, 2012 at 2:20 pm

The frangipani bracelet :-)

296 Jamie Stone November 11, 2012 at 2:38 pm

What a great website! My favorite item that I have found so far is the sterling silver heart ring called “much love”. I think this is a great website for Christmas shopping – thank you for telling us about it!!

297 Stacy November 11, 2012 at 2:49 pm

I love the wool finger puppets!! Would be so sweet for my 2-year old!!

298 Donna November 11, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Inspired by your lovely earrings, I would choose a similar pair of sterling silver dangle earrings – “Songkran Joy”. Even the name is beautiful!

299 Faith November 11, 2012 at 3:08 pm

I would love any of the wool shoulder bags. Beautiful stuff!

300 natalie g November 11, 2012 at 3:14 pm

Love the frangipani flower bracelet!

301 ledith November 11, 2012 at 3:15 pm

Virgin Mary with the Boy. I am a sucker for things that look like religious icons. Some of the stuff on here is gorgeous.

302 Kait November 11, 2012 at 3:17 pm

I’d love the ‘wind chime’ earrings. Not sure how much I’d get to wear those in the next year or so with a six month old who likes to grab at everything!

303 Ted S. November 11, 2012 at 3:17 pm

There are many great earrings on here. WOuld love the sterling silver hanging ones, for my wife’s Christmas gift.

304 Lindsey November 11, 2012 at 3:19 pm

Silver stud earrings, distraction. I love silver jewelry, give me that over gold any day. Thanks for hosting this give away!

305 Karen November 11, 2012 at 3:24 pm

I pick the Brass jewelry box “Revelation”

306 chrissy November 11, 2012 at 3:25 pm

Oh man, my daughter would flip over those dragonflies. So pretty!

307 Laurie November 11, 2012 at 3:28 pm

HI- I would totally love to win the gift certificate at Novica so I could buy my mom a well made pair of silver hoop earrings for Christmas. I really liked the “blossoming style” made in Thailand. They just look like my mom’s style! Thanks and may God bless your day!

308 Rosie November 11, 2012 at 3:40 pm

I love the Leaf of Life cuff bracelent!

309 Beth November 11, 2012 at 3:47 pm
310 Laura Z November 11, 2012 at 3:48 pm

Oohh! What a great giveaway! I love all of the talavera style ceramics made by the Castillo family. I also like the “friendship” turquoise earrings by Alok Jain, but I suspect that if I won I’d use it to buy gifts for my daughters. My seven year old would love the soapstone chess set! I really like almost everything in the Novica catalog. Thanks for giving us a chance to win.

311 Amy Hedberg November 11, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Something about the Brass and wood tic-tac-toe game really caught my eye. I think I would choose that as something beautiful to display in my home that our whole family can play with!

312 Michelle November 11, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Wow! I’m loving the Novica bracelets, especially the “Love Knot.” Definitely going to peruse the website further for gift ideas. Thanks for the introduction :)

313 Amy Hedberg November 11, 2012 at 4:09 pm

The Brass and Wood tic-tac-toe ‘Challenge’ really caught my eye. I think I would choose it because it would be beautiful to display in our home, and the whole family could use it!

314 lori November 11, 2012 at 4:29 pm

I love fine jewelry as well, classic ideas that you can pass along. I would choose the pearl jewelry set called Lunar Magic. Beautiful work!

315 Marla November 11, 2012 at 4:33 pm

It’s too hard to decide what I would get. I would spend a few hours debating and deciding. But I love to support fair trade and small businesses. I’d probably lean towards a nativity.

316 Martha November 11, 2012 at 4:36 pm

Those Starry Sky earrings from Aoy’s collection are lovely!

317 Corey Ann November 11, 2012 at 4:45 pm

328 Mary November 11, 2012 at 7:29 pm

I would love to have the Enchantment bracelet!

329 Andy Tindall November 11, 2012 at 7:35 pm

Sterling silver pendant necklace, ‘Elephant Friendship’

330 Kelly November 11, 2012 at 8:01 pm

Dear Frugalgirl: I just went online and ordered a beautiful and unusual scarf as a Christmas present for my boss—she is very generous employer and it is always a challenge to find a gift that she will really appreciate (although she always tells me not to get her anything – she loves to give but has a harder time receiving!) Thank you so much for passing along this great website — I’m sure I’ll be ordering more from it in the future!

331 Lisa November 11, 2012 at 8:12 pm

I like the recycled bicycle tire shoulder bag “Eco blue chic”

I love the Sterling silver dangle earrings, ‘Early Rain’. There are so many beautiful pieces though – it was hard to choose!!!

337 Anissa November 11, 2012 at 8:42 pm

So hard to choose. The dragonfly stuff is so nice. I also like the tear drop earrings. I love the nice rugs too. Great site and very reasonable prices too. Wish me luck!

338 Jen November 11, 2012 at 8:47 pm

Love so much of the stuff! One thing I like a lot is: Sterling silver pendant, ‘Africa Sankofa’. so lovely!

339 Karina November 11, 2012 at 8:49 pm

I would get the Peridot Helix earrings for my daughter. Peridot is her birthstone.

345 Kat November 11, 2012 at 10:27 pm

I chose the “Joyous Love” sterling silver heart necklace. It’s feels subtle and unique all at the same time. :) You weren’t kidding when you said they had a great variety. I think I’m going to keep them in mind more often when it comes to giving gifts to the special people in my life.

346 Christy S November 11, 2012 at 10:27 pm

Wow. Great stuff. I particularly love the “Horn beaded necklace, ‘Vivid Sunset”

348 Kelly November 12, 2012 at 12:03 am

I checked out Aoy’s beautiful jewelry and love her “Empathy” earrings. Of course, just about anything she makes would make me happy. :-)

349 Kathy M November 12, 2012 at 7:46 am

Darn, I think I may have missed the deadline. However, I just love the Iron wall candleholder-Cross of Guadalupe. My daughter collects crosses and every year I try to find her something unique. This cross is just beautiful. http://www.novica.com/itemdetail/index.cfm?pid=187029

Thanks, as always for the give-a-way

350 Laura November 12, 2012 at 8:00 am
