Mother's Day Gift Ideas - Support Small Business | Veronica Jeans

Perfect Mother's Day gifts

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and play a crucial role in shaping the social fabric of our society. As Shopify store owners, we understand the challenges that small business owners face and the importance of supporting them, especially during difficult times.

This Mother's Day, we have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact by supporting small businesses and choosing to buy gifts from local and independent retailers. Not only does this help keep these businesses afloat, but it also contributes to the growth and vitality of our communities.

So, let's take a moment to appreciate the hard work and dedication of small business owners, and show our support by choosing to buy gifts for the special women in our lives from local and independent retailers. 

So, let's celebrate Mother's Day by giving back to the small businesses that make our online community.

Marula oil made for women by women - Veronica Jeans Shopify Queen and Bestselling Author

Made for women by women

Its fast-absorbing formula provides deep hydration and protects against environmental stressors, while supporting healthy collagen production to help prevent signs of aging and improve skin elasticity.

With its luxurious texture and nourishing properties, Kalahari Gold Marula Oil is the perfect addition to any skincare routine. So why not give the gift of pure and radiant beauty this Mother's Day?

Your mother will love the way this oil makes her skin look and feel, and she'll appreciate the thought and care you put into choosing such a special gift.

A little bit about Kalahari Gold

We believe that TRADE and NOT AID is the only way to eradicate poverty in Africa.

Excellence, professionalism, and our passion for people continually inspire us to be the best at what we do.

Veronica Jeans is a native Namibian living in the USA. She was approached by her fellow Namibians, Mossie Oosthuizen and Matt Ludick, who own and operate African Natural Oils, to distribute Marula oil internationally. 

Knowing that the best way to succeed in the skincare business is to have products scientifically proven, her partnership with ZB, a molecular biologist, was a fabulous idea.

After ZB tested the Marula oil samples from African Natural Oils, he called it the Gold Standard of Marula oil as  they knew they were getting an A grade products.


Before you fully commit to a product, make sure to do your research. Don't just fall in love with the idea of it - take the time to thoroughly evaluate its potential. After all, you want to be sure that what you're getting into has a chance of succeeding. Remember, blindly jumping into a product without proper research is just a shot in the dark. So, be smart and do your due diligence to give your business the best chance for success.

Where Romance meets Recipes

Romance with Terra Kelly - from Veronica Jeans Shopify Queen and Bestselling author

Where Romance Meets Recipes

A romance novel is a great gift for Mother's Day, offering a chance for mothers to escape into a world of love, passion, and adventure. With its heartwarming stories and captivating characters, a romance novel provides the perfect escape from the stress and demands of everyday life.

Who is Terra Kelly?

Long before the dream that sparked her writing journey, she created recipes from scratch. She runs a food blog, worked as a pastry chef for a short period, and has a bachelor's in nutritional science.

She believes in being authentically you and living through your passions.

For Terra, she shares her passions through words and recipes. You'll find so many food conversations in all her books. 

Terra went from being told she was not a good writer to creating recipes, writing romance, and now has 30+ books published. There's always a reason not to write the book, but warning, your story ideas will still be determined to be told.

She's thankful every day for the dream that sparked her career, and she's incredibly grateful for her husband, who said the five words, "I want to know more."

A litte bit about The Missing Piece Puzzle

I was a teacher who used puzzles in the classroom and a widowed Mom to the most incredible amazing son who has autism.  My son was having difficulties with focusing and I thought that a photo puzzle of himself would help.  I immediately flashed back to my experience and decided against it.  The idea began to bug me so I opened my own company to correct all of the pitfalls of the industry.  Our puzzles are made thick and with high-quality materials.  After all, they were made for my son and he sets the bar pretty high!  The idea was born out of love and continues to grow...  


Don't give up at the first hurdle. Keep going and believe in yourself.

Beautiful Calming Scented Candles

Soy Candles by Industrial Farm Co. by Veronica Jeans Shopify Queen and Bestselling Author

Beautiful Calming Scented Candles 

Soy candles are the perfect addition to any home decor. Made from all-natural soy wax, these candles provide a clean and eco-friendly way to bring a warm and inviting atmosphere to any room. Unlike traditional candles made from paraffin wax, soy candles are non-toxic and produce less soot, making them a safer choice for you and your home.

Our soy candles come in a variety of scents, each designed to evoke different moods and emotions. From the fresh and invigorating aroma of citrus to the comforting scent of vanilla, there's a soy candle for every occasion. Each candle is hand-poured into an elegant glass jar, making it a stylish and functional piece of home decor.

A little bit about Industrial Farm Co.

We are a husband and wife team, Tyler and Kristy, and the keystone of our store is our handmade steel brackets in every size and use imaginable. It’s hard to believe that we now offer over 150 products – not only our best-selling brackets but other home décor products such as hooks, towel bars, blanket ladders, coat racks, and a curated home decor line to compliment the products we make.


You have to be willing to adjust your strategy and business plan in the direction your business pushes you.  Being consistent with looking at what is working and what isn’t.  Never stop learning or striving to be better. You will never “be done” improving your business such as websites, seo, blogs, social media.  It is a lot to manage daily.  Find people that have strengths and expertise in the areas you need help in.  Not knowing everything isn’t a bad thing. Find people that can help you in those areas, some of my best brainstorming sessions/ideas come from working with others!

Original Shona Stone Sculptures

Shona sculptures for Mother's Day gift - by Veronica Jeans Shopify Queen and bestselling Author

Original Shona Stone Sculptures

The Moyo Collection of Shona sculptures are a modern contemporary art with an African flair.

The name Moyo Collection really shows the best of Shona sculptors and why they sculpt - "Mojo (African American culture) (or moyo), an early 20th-century African-American term meaning a magic charm or talisman. " ~ Wikipeadia

The translations "moyo" in Swahili means "heart" - the heart of the artist and the heart of Africa!

We support our Shona sculpture artist in Zimbabwe.

By purchasing Moyo art, you are helping to provide jobs for Shona artists and support impoverished families in Zimbabwe.

We can ship from Houston Texas.

A little bit about Artistic Africa Gallery

A song by Neil Diamond comes to mind "America", and really that's what it's all about the American dream. And in our case, helping the Zimbabwean artists, these artists have God-given talents. 

These world masters, and as such, we need to promote their art to the world to show what creativity exists within these artists.

Give them the gift of choice with a Itsy Bitsy Boutique gift card. At Itsy Bitsy, we believe that "they are only little once" and we strive to dress little ones in the cutest and most stylish clothes.

A little bit about The Itsy Bitsy Boutique

Itsy Bitsy’s motto is "they are only little once" so adorn them in cute clothes and dress them well! Our focus is to make everyone feel special when they walk in the door.

Our lines come in and fly out the door pretty quickly so we launched our online store to give everyone an idea of our passion for helping moms and gift givers find something unique.

Susan moved back to Houston from California which left her wondering what to do next- so Itsy Bitsy was founded shortly after in 2009 with a quick trip to market and a word of mouth location. After two years Susan outgrew her initial location and landed on Westheimer road in Houston, where Itsy Bitsy keeps expanding and growing.
