With Valentine's Day just a little over a week away, I have found some unique gifts that will be cherished for years to come! Here are just a few extraordinary items I think would make wonderful gifts for that someone special in your life.

After receiving a promotion and a raise at work, I decided I was going to treat myself this time around. I've been looking for a few new tops since quite a few of the ones I have are either older and worn out or just don't fit me any more. It's very difficult for me to shop for clothing because I am very picky. I have a style all my own and look for tops and bottoms that are unique, something I won't see anyone else wearing. That is one thing I love about Novica. Their items are so unique I rarely, if ever, find someone wearing the same top as me. I came across this gorgeous Jersey top entitled 'Teal Lotus Butterfly' and instantly fell in love. Not only is it beautiful but it is extremely comfortable. I received this top in a beautiful, handcrafted bag and put it on immediately. It has quickly become one of my very favorites. The simple, yet unique design is eye catching and I have received a ton of compliments on it.

Not only is this shirt incredibly comfortable but it's absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend Novica for anyone looking for a unique, handcrafted gift for that special someone this Valentine's Day!
