Sometimes I get stuck in a gift-buying rut and my gifts end up always being the a lot of the same without a ton of personality behind them.   This year we are searching for a few things more unique.  One website that website that is the best for unique gifts is Novica.  Novica is in association with National Geographic, a name we all know for teaching us about marvelous places and people.  At Novica you can buy all kinds of things made from people all around the world.

I love that for gifts, their products are things I could never find in a local store.  If anything our family will think we traveled the world to get them something, though they know we never go farther than our mini-van can take us.  I also love that when we buy items, they are really helping artists all over the world.  They don’t charge artists for posting items on their website and the artists remain fully independent.

I found this pair of handmade earrings for just $15.29 and I loved the story of the woman who made them.   think that knowing the story behind the person who made the gift is so much more personal than buying something you think they’ll buy from a store (even though I’ll be happy with that, too).

Actually while wrting this I found something my husband would love, and had to stop and buy it right then.  I would post a picture… but then he would know what he was getting for Christmas.  So if I had more to spend here is something else he would get:

When I’m on Novica’s site, I’m always drawn to their hammocks.  They always look so comfortable and local to fun areas of the world!  Keep an eye out too, they have a great daily deal every day.  Just be ready, because most days they sell out.
