Fantastic Father’s Day Finds: Novica Gifts

imageHave you been to Novica?

Novica is different.

At the heart of Novica’s mission is to create a bridge between you and the many talented artisans across the globe.  As one of the  leading fair trade artisan websites, Novica partners with National Geographic to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market.  NOVICA unites you with more than 2,000 extraordinary master artists around the world.

When I received the opportunity to work with Novica on a review for my Fantastic Father’s Day Finds guide, I literally spent hours browsing their site.  With over 30,000 unique gifts, including home decor items, silver jewelry, and corporate gifts, there is something on Novica for everyone shopper and in nearly any budget.

I drooled over admired the jewelry for quite some time.

This leather wristband bracelet, called ‘Metropolis,’ nearly shouted down the house,

while this Obsidian beaded bracelet, called ‘Night of Passion,’ called out softly to me.

My trance was broken when I heard my husband call from the other room, Honey…

Oh.  I’m supposed to be shopping for him, I thought.  So, I moved on.  But not before I added that leather bracelet to my wish list!

I thought I may have more luck shopping for a Father’s Day gift in Home Decor, as Brian is not much of a jewelry kind of guy.

Ah, the choices there…

I was drawn to the ‘Solar Wind’ Iron wall adornment…

But knowing my husband, and his practical nature, I thought to shop more.

About the product…

I finally settled on this parachute cabinet, ‘Ruby Camper,’ since we are hoping to start camping soon.

So, I placed my order.

What I thought…

In short order the package arrived, beautifully wrapped (I almost hated to unwrap it) and included artisan story card, that told more about Charly, my Novica artist. .

The Ruby Camper zips closed into a compact little package. Unfolded, it is quite impressive.  Made of the same sturdy fabric used for parachutes, it has four shelves, six exterior pockets, and a stainless steel hanger.  It is well made, the seams are all even, and the zipper functions properly.  This parachute cabinet is going to come in real handy when we start camping.

What I would change…

The Ruby Camper is very nice.  The only thing I would change would be to offer it in more color options.  Perhaps in Emerald (green) or Sapphire (blue) and Onyx (black).

How I rate it…


Lady V dZine rates the Ruby Camper and Novica a happy five out of five hearts.

Where you can buy it…

Shop Novica today for many fine gifts.  Some items can still be delivered in time for Father’s Day!

Be blessed,


Lady V dZine
