Still Looking for A Special Gift for Mom? NOVICA Has What You Need!! {Review & Giveaway}

3:37 PM

I cannot believe that Mother's Day has come and gone already...I had a fantastic day with my family and hope that your Mother's Day was full of beautiful memories as well. My husband bought me a dozen roses and my daughter picked out a balloon...she was SO excited to give me the balloon too, it was just too cute. She is so precious and it was her that made me a mother for the very first time so it was even more special to receive a gift that she picked out herself. Being a mom is definitely a special career for any woman to hold and one that I cherish. So, it is no wonder Mother's Day is so special...we recognize and express our love for our mothers.
This post was supposed to go up last week but unfortunately, my husband had some surgery that set me back a bit for blogging so I am putting it up today as my "day after Mother's Day" post. I guarantee that it is still a special post that you will love! Just because Mother's Day was yesterday, doesn't mean that we can't celebrate mom every day! If you didn't have a chance to pick something up for your mom yet, don't despair...Novica is a wonderful company that features hand made gifts from artisans around the world! The have some gorgeous unique gifts for mom that will still stun her and make her feel very loved. In case you are not familiar with Novica, here is a bit more about them...

NOVICA. The World is Your Market.

I have worked with Novica on many occasions and each item I have received has been simply gorgeous. The quality is wonderful and the craftsmanship is stunningly beautiful. Some items I have given away as gifts and each time, the recipients are so happy with their gifts. So, if you are still hunting for the perfect Mother's Day gift, look no further...Novica is going to get just the right gift in your hands.
So, today's Novica review comes from some artisans named Javier and Efren. These glassblowers hail from Mexico and have been preserving Mexico's blown glass artistry since 1990 and their work is simply stunning. For this review, I chose to receive the "Spring" Water Glasses. I am kind of partial to beautiful glasses and these immediately caught my eye.
I think my favorite part of these water glasses is the cobalt blue accents on the rims and stems. Isn't is beautiful? It adds so much color in just the right places and truly, any beverage would look great in these glasses.
Tall, thin stems are elegant but certainly are not the requirement for beautiful glasses. The stems and bases on these water glasses are short but still lovely. They are also made with blue glass so that is another way that the color just pops out of these.


These shapely water glasses are handcrafted by Javier and Efrén. Each glass is individually handcrafted to bring you the magic of quality Mexican art blowing. These beautiful water glasses will complement any table setting or stand alone with their classic blue rim and base. Because each piece is handmade, shape and size can vary slightly and tiny bubbles may appear within the glass. This exemplifies the hand-blown technique, making every piece a unique example of blown glass craftsmanship.

I did notice some bubbles and imperfections in the glass itself but knowing that it was a part of the uniqueness gave each glass it's own character and I loved it!
Also included in my order was a small card containing information about the artist and a description of the product. This is always a really nice, classy touch that Novica adds when packaging and sending out their products. Each item is given it's own card and you, or the recipient, can read and fully appreciate the story behind the artwork.

This set of 6 "Spring" Water Glasses retails for $45.49 and is available for purchase directly from Novica's website. Also, you will find that Novica carries hundreds of other wonderful gifts for mom and you can check more of those items out when you visit Novica. Please be sure to check out Novica on Facebook, follow their boards on Pinterest and keep up with all of their latest tweets on Twitter! Always something fun going on so don't miss out...visit them today!

So, in my opinion...Novica has some wonderful gift ideas for mom. Make every day Mother's Day and celebrate your mom by giving her a gift she will remember and cherish forever. I am LOVING the water glass set that I received and think that it will be quite an amazing and elegant addition to my dinner table. I would definitely recommend Novica to anyone who is looking for a special gift...whether it be for mom or anyone else!
