I have long been a fan of NOVICA and was very happy when they wrote to me this year and offered me a gift certificate so I could order something to review. Of course I said yes and promised my unbiased thoughts. I perused the New Arrivals but I had an idea of what I was going to choose. I didn’t want to rush because there are so many lovely items to be found on the site.
I gave some thought to the gifts for him because I always like to find fun and unique presents for the hubby. Given that he now has three motorcycles in the motorcycle palace – and one of them even runs! – this motorcycle sculpture would have been cute. But I didn’t end up picking that.
I looked through all of the beautiful jewelry because I love the artisan pieces and I was intrigued by several anklets – I adore moonstones – but I can’t trust those goats to not nibble it right off of my body! Those silly critters just love to eat. But I returned to my original thought…
…beautiful glasses hand blown in Mexico. I had a set in a different design that I’d gotten years ago from NOVICA and I just love them. They are a perfect size and weight for everyday use. They go into the dishwasher and come out without scratches. We had managed to break half of the other set and I’d been longing to get some more.
I chose a slightly different design this time. The shape is slightly tapered and the colorful band at the top is a happy touch. Another really wonderful thing about these glasses – they don’t sweat in the summer. That is a big benefit if you ask me. I’m thrilled with them!
