Valentine Gift Guide

I’ve been struggling with finding the perfect gift for Dave this year. (Between Christmas and his December birthday, I’ve exhausted all of my ideas!) Here are a few options to get you started if you’re still on the hunt for the perfect present (or just looking to treat yourself).

For Her

Giveaway: $40 to NOVICA

NOVICA is a leading fair trade website, showcasing the work of artisans across the world. Of course this gives you the opportunity to find hundreds of unique items in one place, but NOVICA’s mission is really about supporting global artisans in a very personal way. (As you shop the site, you’ll even see biographies about each person.)

The challenge with supporting so many artisans is that the NOVICA site is expansive! I shopped with them last year and it took me hours to scour the site and settle on an item. That sentiment was shared by other customers and NOVICA responded with its new Gift Finder. Now, those hard-to-find gifts are easier to discover. You can narrow down those choices by gender, price point or even interest. (Cocktail gifts? Yes, please!)

Check out the new Gift Finder, then come back and let me know what you like on the site. One reader will win a $40 gift certificate!

*I just ordered these. I’ll let you know my thoughts when they arrive.

Make sure Alilang is on your radar the next time you need an affordable statement bauble.

But don’t let that intimidate you, you’ll soon discover items like this Dannijo-inspired collar and one of the most varied collections of brooches I’ve seen outside of eBay. One lucky lady will win the darling floral necklace seen above. Good luck!
