A little over a month ago, Novica approached me about doing a review and giveaway of a few of the products on their website. For those of you not familiar with NOVICA, it's a place where artisans from all over the world sell their work in conjunction with National Geographic.
With Fathers Day coming up, I thought, this will be perfect! I can do it right before to highlight some great gift ideas for dads. What I forgot, was that everything had to ship from the country where it is made, and I didn't quite get it in time. Because Novica is still a great place to shop for Dads, here is my Fathers Day post a week late.
The males in my family are all quite different. Because of this, I love that you can shop on Novica.com for Gifts by Personality.
I found these for my animal loving dad -
And these for my executive type husband -
Something I love about the site is they now have a curate feature. You can essentially curate the items on the site and create your own design boards on their curation site. Think pinterest but for a specific site.
When you order something from Novica, it comes wrapped up in a cute little package with a postcard from the general area where the item was made. After a lot of deliberation and a little curating, I decided to go with something a little different . . .
This is what our package looked like.
When we opened it up, we found this
The Rustic Witch Iron Statue made from recycled auto parts.
I know it doesn't fit with the items I mentioned earlier, but I have a 4 year old daughter that is obsessed with witches. And I knew that when she saw this, something magical would happen.
I was right.
The statue is made from recycled auto parts, and is melded together perfectly to create a hook nose witch. We have it up all of the time as a decoration on our bookcase, but it would also make a fun Halloween centerpiece.
To Buy - The Rustic Witch was created by Armando Ramirez (Mexico) and currently retails for $29.95 on Novica.com
To Win - Novica is giving one of you a $50 gift card to try out their site.
