Review and Giveaway- $50 gift certificate to UNICEF Market

*Disclosure: I received a gift certificate to purchase products to review for myself, and was provided with a second one for giveaway. All opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

I admit it freely, I like to shop. But I REALLY like to shop when my purchases aren't just fun, but have the ability to help other people at the same time. Enter UNICEF Market. UNICEF Market is a great place to shop for beautiful, unique items from artisans around the world.  But proceeds don't just go to support the artisans, they also go to UNICEF to provide for needs such as immunizations.

The UNICEF Market is set up in a way that makes it really easy for you to browse products. You can search by price, gender, occasion or even a region where the product is made. You can also look at categories including home decor, jewelry, accessories, collections and greeting cards. Since my house is pretty full of decor, I decided to spend my time browsing in the "Gifts for Mom" section. There are some stunningly beautiful items for sale at UNICEF Market.  Most are one-of-a-kind and the selection is always changing.

I ended up using my $50 gift certificate to purchase two items, a pair of silver fox earrings and a pendant with my birthstone and flower on it. Both came packaged in a pretty pouch, with a card. I love them both so much- they are so lovely and well made.




Mother's Day is just around the corner- UNICEF Market has a special category with gift ideas for that holiday. Drop by and shop for a special gift for your mom! Do you need a gift for an upcoming party or dinner invitation- UNICEF Market has that covered too, with lots of housewarming gift ideas

And I have great news- I have a $50 gift certificate to giveaway to one lucky reader! Enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.
