Mama’s Gift Guide & $300 Value Giveaway!

Embracing the seasons of motherhood often means blessing others who have spiritually and physically mothered and mentored me, rather than focusing on my own season. I love surprising these dear ladies with a special gift and note just to show my appreciation. What better occasion than in the coming month, with Mother’s Day approaching?

I have also wanted to bless you, dear reader. I have appreciated your support and community over the years. So, I have collected together some of my favorite mama/family-owned businesses to provide you with a suggested gift-giving guide with discounts, and an awesome giveaway!

Each business represented here in our gift guide are items that I have used around our home, and given as gifts myself. When you purchase from these small companies, you will bless not only your recipient, but also the families of each business.

The winner of this giveaway will win the giveaway prize offered by each sponsor in the gift guide, totaling approximately a $300 value! Two “runner-up” winners will each receive a year-long membership to Plan to Eat!

If you would like to print out this gift guide for your reference, use the Print Friendly link at the bottom of this post. (If you are reading this in your email, you will need to click through to the blog post.) It will give you the option of not printing photos, if you prefer. (Then, I suppose Mama could leave it strategically sitting around the house as a gift-giving hint, too, right? ahem.)

There is something here for everyone, whether she prefers a cup of coffee or tea, a bit of pampering, getting organized, cooking, preparing for baby, or making her own DIY products! These are wonderful, usable items, instead of “cluttery” stuff and knick-knacks.

Take a moment to browse through the sponsors’ websites, and share about this giveaway with your friends! They’d love your support.
