The smell of pumpkin spice has always been my signal that the holidays are coming around the corner. I love the excitement of back to school shopping, finding the most awesome family costume theme, turkey and gravy, and Christmas cookies.
Most importantly, the holidays are all about family, being thankful and the joy of giving to others.
As I create my Christmas list this year (a little older and wiser), I’ve found that I love buying products that also do double in return. For example, I love my Toms. For every pair that you purchase, the company also gives one in return to another child! How cool is that. Check out my review here.
Most recently, I’ve also added Novica to my list of stores to purchase from this year as well! Many artisans from around the world (many living in rural communities) don’t have the means to sell their work on the international market. Novica gives them a free platform to do this, and reach customers on a global scale. They empower artisans from around the world to build a sustainable business from their craft. Check out Novica mission statement here. I think online stores like this are categorized as “social media for social good” – and I’m happy to be a part of that movement!
So as you shop this holiday season, check out their gift guide here.
This wouldn’t be an awesome post with out a (drum roll please) a giveaway! One lucky winner will win a $50 gift card, which in turn will help out an Artisan around the world.
