NOVICA $50 Gift Card Giveaway

NOVICA is the kind of company I like to support.  NOVICA, in association with National Geographic, helps small business artisan reach more customers through an international website.  In addition, when you buy from NOVICA, you help support these  individuals by helping them earn a living wage and support their families.

NOVICA also offers loans for the artisans at 0% interest so they can get their businesses off the ground.  In fact, you can go to the website and see exactly how these artisans plan to use their loans.

I don’t know about you, but more and more I seek to support small businesses instead of large corporations seeking to reduce the quality of products while charging more. NOVICA is the perfect alternative because they offer quality items that support individual business owners.

Last year I bought my mom a pair of earrings from NOVICA, and she loved them and wears them often.

This year, I bought Bookworm this Handmade Wood Solitaire Game with Glass Marbles that I’m sure he will love!

I also bought this beautiful cross for our home.

In each NOVICA product that I’ve bought, the quality has been top-notch, and the item is always packed carefully and wrapped beautifully.  The products I’ve ordered generally arrive in a few weeks.

Best of all, if you’re on a tight budget, you can search for items based on price range.  Truly, there are items that fit all price ranges.  For instance, if you were in the market for a cross necklace, they range in price from as low as $17.99 to as high as $349.

The Giveaway

NOVICA is giving one lucky Mom’s Plans’ reader a $50 NOVICA gift certificate.

To enter, simply visit NOVICA’s website and come back here and comment on what item you’d like to buy with your gift certificate.

This giveaway, which is open to entrants worldwide ages 18+, will end on December 20th.

The winner will be chosen via randomizer.org.

I received one gift certificate for review purposes.  No other compensation was given.  All opinions are my own.
