Novica Makes Holiday Shopping So Much Easier with Their New Gift Finder (Review and Giveaway)

Welcome to!

I have been a fan of Novica since I stumbled upon it last Christmas and shared a review and giveaway.  If you are not familiar with this online store, here is more about Novica:

", part of the National Geographic family, was founded ten years ago with the mission of aiding artisans & preserving ancient craft traditions. Novica has quickly become one of the largest handmade gift and home d├ęcor websites in the world, selling the works of more than 3,000 artisans through its office in Asia, Africa and Latin America (nearly 30,000 limited edition and one-of-a-kind gifts and home decor items, including fine handmade jewelry, clothing, gifts, home decor, and original paintings). Novica is the recipient of prestigious cultural and business awards, most recently the America Economia Excellence Award for Cultural Preservation and the Schwab Foundation Award for Social Entrepreneurship."

I was excited to hear that Novica now offers a new Gift Finder, just in time for the holidays. With their new gift finder, they will make shopping for those on your holiday gift so much easier.  Last Christmas I purchased a few handmade items including a messenger bag and necklace and gave them to those hard to find/I have everything people on my list and they loved them.  And, this Christmas, I plan to do the same.

Last night, after the girls and my hubby went to bed, I headed over to Novica to try out their new Gift Finder.  Wow, they take the guesswork out of what to get a hard to shop for person, and make shopping a piece of cake.They break down their artisan product offering so specifically it takes the guesswork out of shopping.  From Gifts for Dad, Gifts for Mom, Hostess Gifts, Cooking Gifts and Gifts for Animal Lovers to name a few, Novica's new Gift Finder will make shopping for that person on your list a cinch.

Here are just a few items that popped up when I tried using the Novica Gift Finder, when looking those few hard to shop for people on my list:

Gifts for Him:

Gifts for Mom:

Cooking Gifts:

Romantic Gifts:

Now, to only decide which of these unique artisan gifts to buy. :-)

If you haven't had a chance to check out Novica, make sure you do, before you go crazy trying to find that special gift for those on your shopping list.  You are bound to find something for both men and women, that will fit their style and likes.
