The struggle is real when trying to keep track of what day of the week it is these days, let alone what month. Did you know that we are already near the end of April? This means Mother’s Day is just around the corner; more specifically, a little over two weeks out!! To help with finding that special gift, the Arbor Team delved into our inventory to create a gift guide just for Mom that we hope will inspire you. You’ll also find recommendations to a few small businesses who not only have great products we love but are fellow Christian retailers as well.
If she loves to read...
From Grits to Grace Devotional from the Farmhouse Porch - If your mom is loving the farmhouse trend, then this devotional will be right up her alley! It's filled with scriptures, stories, timely tips, and practical advice (just like grandma used to give). It's a fun read filled with God's truth.
Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus 365-Day Devotional - Quiet time for mommas is a must, but sometimes finding the time is hard - we understand. This beautiful, floral devotional offers encouraging meditations to help you spend a few moments turning your eyes on Jesus before your hectic day begins. After short devotions and scripture for each day of the year, there are journaling lines and ample space to record your thoughts, hopes, and prayers.
Purchase with a Purpose
Thistle Farms Hand Lotion - You can never go wrong with quality skin care, and we absolutely love the Thistle Farms Hand Lotion (which comes in three different scents). What we love even more about this product is that the company is a globally minded social enterprise led by women survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction. Not only are you purchasing a great product, but you're supporting a good cause!
MudLove Bracelet - Another company with a mission that we love is MudLove! Their jewelry (especially these adorable clay bracelets) helps to provide one week of clean water in the Central African Republic. We love that their bracelets are adjustable, and their simple designs match any outfit.
Cultivate What Matters Powersheets - We love supporting small businesses, and Lara Casey's business, Cultivate What Matters, is a favorite! They carry products that not only help women grow in their faith, but they help women cultivate what matters in life (hence their name). Their Powersheets are an amazing tool to help you accomplish your big and small goals through small, attainable steps.
Raise a Hallelujah T-Shirt - Clothing that's cute and has a great message is a double-win in the fashion department! This shop carries fun, Christian t-shirts that make a great gift for moms everywhere.
Antique Candle Co. - We love this Christian small business and their candles! Each candle is made with wax from natural, domestically grown soy beans, hand-picked fine fragrance oils, and a natural cotton wick for a clean, long-lasting, and even burn. They have so many yummy scents to choose from, and they have seasonal favorites as well!
Alright friends, we hope that we have provided you with some inspiration!!
Of course the truest gifts come from Heaven and the Arbor Team would like to lift up all Moms in prayer for God's special blessings this Mother's Day!
