Spring Into Birthdays

Do you have a memory of an especially sweet birthday? Besides giving birth to my first baby on my 25th birthday, I'd have to say my 40th birthday would be my second favorite. My sweet husband pulled off the ultimate surprise birthday party for me. The “TreeHouse” (children’s worship room at our church) wasfilled with all our friends waiting to surprise me. Then he had a “Joy Trivia Contest” followed by “Guess What Age” as he showed pictures of me throughout the years with all my different hairstyles and colors. (I consider you a good friend to let you see these old pics!)

To surprise me is a hard thing to do, and he hit this one out of the park! He said there was no way he could ever top that again!

Here at the store we love spring birthdays. Perhaps we’re partial since my birthday is tomorrow and Rachel’s is in May! Spring brings so many gift occasions, Mother’s Day, graduations, showers, house warmings, and of course, birthdays! Finding the perfect gift shouldn’t be stressful, it should be a part of the celebration.

Do you have a special person to shop for this spring? Here are some of our favorite gifts to get your creative juices flowing.

For the decorator:

She probably has her space perfectly decorated but there is always room for another little happy. We recommend a beautiful tray, a vase filled with our real touch tulips, or a book full of new ideas and inspiration.

For the entertainer:

She loves to entertain, so make it easy for her. We recommend a guest towel & soap set, a set of melamine plates, or a Happy Everything plate to change with every occasion.

For the cook:

She’s known for sharing delicious meals and feeding others well is her love language. We recommend a Coton Colors baking dish, one of our cookbooks filled with new recipes for her to try, a delicious Salt Sisters seasoning mix, or a new set of dishtowels and pot holders. 

For the reader:

She loves a good book and maybe even hosts a book club or two. We recommend one of our newest books – Lemons on Friday, a lightweight throw for curling up on cool spring nights, or a sweet mug paired with one of our gourmet teas and honey.

For the fashion lover:

She always has on the cutest outfits and perfect accessories to match. We recommend a coordinating jewelry set, a monogrammed travel bag, or a super soft Mud Pie cardigan.


For the busy:

She is always on the go – doing for others, succeeding in her career, and involved in so many great things. We recommend a travel mug, a coloring book to calm her mind, or a set of shower bursts to pamper her everyday.

For you:

While we’re at it, you deserve a little something too. After all, a little treat is good for all of us. When you’re shopping for that special gift, brighten your own day with something you love! We’ll even wrap it for you!

So come in, enjoy your shopping trip and let us help you celebrate your loved one.

Until next time, 

Joy and Rachel
