Novica: Artisan Holiday Gifts + Reader Giveaway

Sample Disclosure


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!

Reader Giveaway: One lucky Jinxy Beauty reader will win a $35 Novica gift code. To enter, just complete the entry form below by 11:59pm ET on 12/12/16. Good luck!

Sitara Handcrafted Jewelry – Enter to Win a $100 Gift Card

disclosure samplesslide_05

When you look for jewelry for yourself or for a gift, do you crave something unique?  Something different than the mass-produced items we’re used to seeing in most stores?  If so, let me introduce you to Sitara Collections – an online destination for home decor, travel needs, fine jewelry, fantastic gift selections and personal luxuries you won’t find anywhere else.

The company initially focused exclusively on the exceptional work of Indian artisans, whose exotic inspirations and traditional craftsmanship still remain at the heart of Sitara Collections. In recent years, offerings have expanded to include extraordinary examples of South American artistry and a line from one of France’s most exciting jewelry designers.

Screen Shot 2014-03-09 at 10.20.59 PM

All of the products are crafted by talented artisans, most of whom are keeping centuries-old techniques and designs alive while creating modern treasures. And because every piece is handmade, your purchase is the very definition of exclusive.

They are proud to offer top-quality materials and equally proud to support fair labor practices—particularly for Indian and South American artists—to ensure that they’re able to devote themselves to their craft while earning a fair wage.

In addition to fine jewelry, Sitara Collections also features extraordinary décor items, elegant Pashmina and other delightful surprises sure to transport you to a whole new world of possibilities. Sitara is about feeling confident, chic and absolutely fabulous. Even our name—the Indian word for “star”—speaks to our mission.


I recently received this Cascading Aqua Rings Necklace from Sitara. Per the web site description, “The depth and unique beauty of falling water is reflected in this gorgeous cascading ring necklace. A triple stand of aqua rings in varying shades creates an elegant, attention-grabbing piece that dresses up blue jeans and adds a hip element to dressier attire.” I agree that the necklace is gorgeous. I also like that it is very lightweight! The necklace came very nicely packaged in both a drawstring jewelry bag and a tied gift box – letting you give it as a very nice gift. (But I kept it for myself!!)

Browse the Sitara Collections online, and let our exceptional creations make you feel like a star every day.
