My mom loves the color purple, so the Amethyst Dangle Earrings would make a gorgeous Mother’s Day gift for her.

My Fair Trade Artisan Unique Gifts by NOVICA Review

As you can probably tell, I had a great time browsing the NOVICA website and have several items on my birthday and Mother’s Day wish list. Lucky for me, I was able to select something from the NOVICA website to review for this post.  Since we just remodeled our kitchen, I selected something extra special from their unique home decor gifts line, the Bali Forest 4 set of Ceramic cups and saucers. Just look at the beautiful detail on the handle. The carved garland of leaves were inspired by the cool rain forests of Bali. It is just stunning.

I was equally surprised at not only the beauty of the cups but with the added extras that came with my gift.

My NOVICA gift set came with a hand-written note from the Bali Artisan. I was so impressed and kept the card. I’ve shown it already to several people because it is so cool.

The Bali Forest ceramic cups and saucers makes coffee and tea time more special. My husband and I have enjoyed the cups daily. I can honestly say that I’ve never “enjoyed” a coffee cup until now. I know that it would be even more so if I had received them as a gift. Giving a gift from NOVICA is at a higher level of “specialness” since the items are so unique and you know that you are helping an artisan across the planet.

Beautiful, right? It is the perfect size for espresso, lungo, or tea. We receive the below Nespresso Espresso Maker as a gift while attending the Stouffer’s Fan event. We’ve been using large coffee mugs since we didn’t have small espresso size cups. It looks like they were made for each other!

In addition to the handwritten postcard from Bali, the NOVICA gift came with a lovely gift card stating, “For the days when you don’t have enough caffeine.”  Plus, it came with an equally lovely card that talked about the business of the artisan who made my ceramic cups and saucers. I’ll keeping those cards as mementos as well.

All in all, my experience with National Geographic’s NOVICA was quite lovely from beginning to end. I highly recommend their products and service for your own shopping and gift giving needs.
