Novica is in association with National Geographic and they offer a wide variety of beautiful art pieces and home deco. What I love about it is that Novica also provides the story about the artist that created every piece and they do it in a way that you actually feel an attachment to them. It really does. It gave me a whole new feeling to be able to read such things while looking through their site. If I saw the same things (probably not that likely since they are unique pieces of home decor and gifts) in a regular store, I probably would have thought they were pretty but I really don’t think it would be the same as actually reading about the artist, how they make their pieces and read about their culture.
When Novica asked me if I would like to work with them on a review, I immediately came onboard. I was thrilled to have this opportunity! I was given a gift code to use on their site to choose what I wanted to review and I chose a couple items from their Corporate Gifts category. Looking through their website and trying to make my choice was really difficult only because I couldn’t decide! The website is really easy to navigate and find what you are looking for but I got lost in reading about everything when I was trying to make my decision. I felt like a kid in a candy store!
I have always had a soft spot for anything from Mexico because I think the art is absolutely amazing. I finally settled on the Ceramic Aztec Calendar Plaque and a 2 Box Set of Handcrafted Apple Jasmine Candles that are absolutely beautiful!
The artist that created these candles name is Nantana Suwanwet and her nickname is Na. She was born in Siam and started working at a young age to help her parents supporting her two younger sisters’ studies. She started crafting and loves handicraft because she can use her own imagination and has been crafting all sorts of gift sets including the packaging and boxes. I’ll tell you one thing, her boxes and candles are really pretty!
The product was sent to me for free via gift card by the company for my use and review. I was not paid to write my review and my opinions are 100% my own.
