Each spring, I hear from women’s ministry leaders looking for inspiration and ideas on what to hand out at church on Mother’s Day.
Like many, the churches we’ve attended distribute something to every woman on Mother’s Day.
Being sensitive to the women in the sanctuary that may have miscarried, lost a child, or be estranged from a child has always been important to our teams. We also know that women who may not be biological mothers have mothered many of us spiritually.
Deciding what to distribute can be challenging.
If the item is emblazed with the word “mother,” then those who aren’t mothers or those who desperately long to be mothers can be triggered.
I remember well the first year I was tasked with handing out something for Mother’s Day at our church. I opted to side with tradition, and we handed out carnations to every woman in attendance.
However, in the years that followed, our team decided to take a more intentional approach as we distributed items that pointed our women to Christ. We didn’t have a large budget, so we spent much of the year with our eyes open, looking for sale and clearance items.
Whether you search all year or you are a last-minute shopper, I’m here to lend a helping hand.
Many years ago, I discovered CTA, Inc. The prices are so reasonable that I was worried about the quality of the items I was ordering. I didn’t want our women to feel like their gift was cheap. Thankfully my concerns were unfounded! Over the years, I have ordered many items from CTA, Inc., and each time I have been very pleased with the quality. The colors are bright, the items are well-made, and the content has been biblically accurate.
I recently had the opportunity to review a few items in the women’s ministry line for CTA, Inc. for Mother’s Day.
These Mother’s Day gifts are beautiful, budget-friendly, and practical – your women will really use them!
Each of these items is part of a more extensive line of products – so if you like the colors or design, but are looking for something else, be sure you check the CTA, Inc. website to see if there’s an item that’s more to your liking.
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas (for everyone)
Note: At the time of this posting all of the following items were priced at $1.99 or less. Many were on sale.
I love the bold colors featured on the Strong and Courageous line. Pretty pens are my jam! The bookmark features Joshua 1:9 ESV, “The LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” What a wonderful reminder for every woman in our church!
This flipbook has a built-in stand making it perfect to set on a desk, counter, or vanity. Your women will find comfort and encouragement (whispers of God’s love) in the scriptures, prayers, and words on each page. The purple and green color scheme is both feminine and strong.
If you’re looking to encourage your women to meet with God daily – you’ll want to order this gift!
Your women will love the soft pink petals on the book’s cover and the thickness of the full-color pages inside. The theme verse is 2 Corinthians 13:11, “The God of love and peace will be with you.” This 64-page softcover book includes 5 weeks of daily devotions – each one includes a Scripture passage, a quick-to-read yet meaningful devotion, and a prayer starter.
4. Abundant Grace Keepsake Box with 32 Scripture Prayer Cards
I admit the design on this box (and the entire Abundant Grace line) is what caught my attention. The watercolor florals on the box are beautiful!
The cards have a scripture on one side and inspirational thoughts or prayers on the other side. Your women will enjoy flipping through the cards and the reminders of God’s abundant grace. They are also perfect for enclosing in a notecard!
5. Whispers of God’s Love Amenity Bag and Card
If you’re looking for something practical to gift to your women – this is it!
This amenity bag is 8-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ and perfect for travel or storing cosmetics or personal items in a desk drawer, tote bag, large pocketbook, or even your car. It comes with a zippered top. Though the cloth bag is printed, it looks at first glance as if it were embroidered with Isaiah 43:1, “I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.”
Be sure to visit the CTA, Inc. website to view additional items and styles, including key fobs, mugs, notebooks, candles, compacts, and more. You’re sure to find something that works with your Mother’s Day budget.
As you consider this year’s Mother’s Day gifts, give a gift that encourages every woman to remember God’s love.
