Mother's Day is coming quickly and we all want to honor our amazing moms! If you are like me it seems harder and harder to come up with unique ideas every year that will show how much you love your mom but ALSO won't break the budget. Who else deserves a show of our support and love?
Each of these gifts will show your mom (or even grandma) that you recognize all that she does to support you, to encourage you, to laugh with you and to cheer you on in life.
Personalized Scripture Tumbler
Does your mom LOVE her morning cup of tea or coffee? Who doesn't? These tumblers come in a variety of colors and can be personalized with her name as well. We all need to be reminded of our faith through the day and this tumbler with the verse from Philippians 4:8 will bring her thoughts back to positive things.
Many of us struggle with negative thoughts. It’s easy to dwell on the negative when life is hard, disappointing, or painful. That’s why it’s so important to follow this verse; it’s here to help us through the tough times and appreciate the great moments. The full verse from The Message says,
“Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.” (Philippians 4:8, MSG).
What a great reminder!
This stainless travel-size tumbler is vacuum-insulated and built to last. Comes with a clear plastic lid and is dishwasher safe.
Personalized Mom/Grammy/Grandma/Mimi/Nana Scripture T-shirt
Proverbs 31 has a wonderful description of a "Godly Woman." I've often been inspired AND challenged while reading this chapter. Beginning in verse 10 it says, "A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies." As you read through the details of the life and experiences of this noble woman, it's verse 28 that always makes me smile, "Her children rise up and call her blessed."
What better way to honor your mom or grandma than with this buttery soft t-shirt? It's made from 100% cotton and with a relaxed fit that is sure to be comfortable. And the best part is it comes in your choice of personalized names (Mom, Grandma, Grammy, Nana, Mimi) and a variety of colors. We offer a full range of sizes from XS - 3XL.
Personalized Grammy/Nana/Oma/Mimi Custom Kitchen Tea Towel
Most moms spend some serious time in the kitchen. I know as I cook dinner I love to have pretty AND functional things around me. It's even better if I know a loved one has given me a personal and thoughtful item to use in the kitchen.
These tea towels are large (28" x 28"), look beautiful displayed in the kitchen and are a practical gift that will be used over and over. When looking for gifts I like to find items that have a real use that I know won't just end up in a drawer collecting dust. They are personalized with a variety of names (Oma, Mimi, Nana, Grammy) and if you make a request in the "Special Instructions" box at checkout, I will add whatever name you choose to either design. Have a wine lover- we've got it, a gardener- yep that too! Scripture towels and monogram family towels are available as well.
Mothers' prayers are powerful. Every child is different, and every mother is different. Yet our God does not change. He offers us comfort, peace, and help in Scripture.
Every mother should pray for her children regardless of their behavior or mannerism. A good child deserves prayer and a “bad” child needs prayer. What other encouragement does a mother need besides this? For we know that, "The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with." (James 5:16 MSG)
Here are a few Scriptures to encourage us to pray:
"Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’" Jeremiah 33:3 (NKJV)
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." Matthew 7:7-8 (NKJV)
I know I need to spend more time in prayer and having a journal would be a daily reminder. These journals make a lovely gift for mom, grandma, your prayer partner, bible study leader, even for a new bride. Encourage the faith life of someone special.
These beautiful floral hardback journals lay flat when opened, have ruled lines and come in two color patterns.
Come Lord Jesus Rustic Whitewashed Wood Sign
Growing up we always said this traditional prayer before every meal,
"Come Lord Jesus be our guest and let these gifts to us be blessed. Amen"
My children now say this with their children and it blesses me to know that our faith has been handed down from generation to generation. When I visit my 86- year-old father, we still always pray this together.
This 5.5" x 15" Rustic Wood framed sign is a perfect addition to your kitchen. It has a toothed hanger on the back but also easily stands up on its own. What a gentle reminder in your home of your faith and the importance of inviting Jesus into our lives at every moment.
Perhaps one of these gift ideas will be just what you need for your mom this year. A faith gift that encourages her, a personalized gift that shows her you appreciate who she is and all she does for you and your family. Blessings and peace to your home as you celebrate your mom!
