One of the things we’ve done a LOT of during the past 9 years we’ve been running nwaMotherlode.com is give fun stuff away to local moms. It’s the best part of our job — the thrill of contacting a fellow mama to say, “Guess what? You won!” (In our opinion, mamas tend to put themselves last on the list so it’s great when we get to do something that makes them feel awesome.)
This particular giveaway from JuBe is extra special because, not only does a local mama win any of the JuBe boxes she likes, she also gets to send a gift to someone she loves. Why? “Just Because.” That’s how the JuBe company gets it’s name — from a mashup of the words “just because.” (Pronunciation tip? JuBe rhymes with “ruby.”)
The company was founded earlier this year by two busy moms. (One of them, Jennifer Adair, is a Northwest Arkansas local who also writes a monthly blog for nwaMotherlode. We think she’s one of the funniest writers we’ve ever met. She’s also an accomplished website and app builder, marketing guru, homeschooler, author and entrepreneur.) Jen and her business partner, a fellow mama also named Jennifer, set out to create a gift-giving experience that would be easy for busy women without sacrificing any of the “wow” factor for people who receive the gifts.
Each JuBe box features a collection of specially curated gift items with a theme. You can choose either a pre-made box (by going to GiveJube.com or on Amazon), or you can choose the elements you want by building build your own custom box on the JuBe website. Just pick elements that fit your taste and budget.
(If you’re in a real rush for a gift, you can order a pre-made JuBe box from Amazon, and, if you’re an Amazon Prime member, it’ll arrive in 2 days!) Local orders in Northwest Arkansas can also be picked up at the Handmade Market, which is next to Ozark Natural Foods in Fayetteville.
For example, if you’re going to someone else’s home for Thanksgiving and would like to send a “thank you” or a hostess gift ahead of your arrival, this Thanksgiving/Fall-themed JuBe box would be perfect. Isn’t it pretty?
In addition to the JuBe boxes, the company also recently introduced JuBe printables. We pulled a few of our favorites together in the box below. Soooo cute!
To see the newest JuBe products, follow the company on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. And remember that JuBe boxes aren’t just for grown-ups. This “Kid’s Chef” box has become one of JuBe’s best sellers.
The winner of this week’s JuBe giveaway will get to choose any box she likes on the JuBe website to keep for herself, AND she can choose a box to be sent as a gift to a friend or relative. It’s perfect! A little something for you and a little something for someone you care about.
