Celebrating DAD with Novica! $50 Gift Card Giveaway, ends 7/17/15





Novica.com is a global market place in associated with National Geographic. It's endeavor is to Empower. Connect. Preserve.

I have been a loyal member (customer) for several years now. I always find the perfect gift for family and friends there.  I have spent many a happy hour browsing their many unique offerings.

Father's Day was a week ago and Mike was gifted with two wonderful gifts from Novica:
a great T-Shirt and an amazing carved wooden puzzle.



You can see the colourful Novica logo on the front of this Mission Novica T-Shirt.   On the back, it says, "Empower Connect Preserve".   This is a size LARGE -- the shirts do run a bit small.

Idriss Lawani in Bali designs this cool cotton t-shirt for our Novica Collections.  The T-Shirt came in a very pretty, decorative cotton (reusable) bag.



He also received something he's been wanting for ages:  The stunning Labyrinth Game, hand-carved from Sheesham wood. 






This is a masterful dexterity game of patience and skill.  That's why happy husband plays with it and not me!

Even though Father's Day is over, the man in your life deserves a gift to let him know how you feel about him.

So, the ever-generous folks at Novica have offered one of my readers the chance to win a $50 Gift Code!

Fantastic!

Just follow the entry instructions below for your chance to enter to win!

Open to USA, 16+, No PO Boxes, please. All entries are verified. Giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m. on July 17, 2015.
