With the holidays approaching I have been scouring the Internet for gift ideas. As my girls get older and approaching the teenage years, it means I have to get more creative with my gift giving. One daughter in particular, wants everything to be recycled or handmade. The other daughter just prefers unique things, and not to be seen wearing the same earrings or clothes as her friends. It’s quite the list I need to come up with and how do I find a place where I can shop for both of them? Thankfully I found Novica, an online resource that focuses not only on fair trade, but on handcrafted, unique items from all over the world. Best of all it has things that both of my daughters would love!
The first pair of earrings that caught my eye on the Novica site were these amazing hand crafted green beaded earrings. Not only are the “Dzidzo” earrings handcrafted, and fair trade, they are GREEN, my daughter’s favorite color.
From the Novica website I was able to find gifts not only for both of my daughters, but for some hard to buy for friends as well. We all know that as we age, our urge to simplify becomes stronger. I try to respect that, and make careful, selective decisions when I buy gifts. I try to find things my friends will use often, and not just set on a shelf to collect dust. That means I focus a bit more on Jewelry and clothing.
Although my intent was to holiday shop, I saw this amazing scarf and decided it would be great for a friend’s birthday. She needs something to brighten her day, plus the colors will go great with her dark hair.
Whoever you need to buy for on your holiday list, you’ll be sure to find something they’ll love at Novica!
