Tubby’s Taste Cookie Boxes for Mom’s Sweet Day
Treat your mom to one of Tubby’s Taste Mother’s Day Cookie Boxes! This online vegan cookie company boasts bold flavors and stories inspired by their Jamaican-American roots.
Tubby’s Mother’s Day boxes are filled with delicious, boldly flavored, homemade, and not to mention, vegan cookies.
We asked CEO and founder Danielle Tubbs for recommendations to help you pick the best flavors that your mom will love and enjoy! She tells us,
“Our Mother’s Day Cookie Box contains a variety of specialty flavors. Oh. Wow. Yum! (Dark Chocolate Chip Sea Salt), The Ascension (Mocha Oat Chocolate Chip), Taste of Paradise (Coconut Oatmeal Cinnamon), The Speakeasy (Oatmeal Rum Raisin), Home Sweet Home (Mango, Coconut, and Lime) and our newest flavor, Caribbean Punch (Grapefruit, Pineapple, Hibiscus, and Lemon).
Choose between the Chocolate Lover’s, Everything But Chocolate, or The Complete Collection depending on mom’s palate.”
The cookies are made with organic, nut- and soy-free ingredients, making them the perfect sweet surprise to the moms who love to indulge their sweet tooth the healthy way.
Owner Danielle came from a long line of Jamaican cake ladies. To that, she fondly shares, “It’s safe to say that baking is in my blood.”
She grew up in Miami surrounded by an eclectic mix of fruits, foods, and flavors. Her unique experiences and family traditions served as inspirations for the bold flavors of her cookies. But those did not come to her overnight.
Danielle spent years testing recipes and bringing baked goods to parties until one of her vegan friends said, “I wish you’d make something that we both could enjoy”. A simple wish, a fond request, that became a pivotal moment in her business’ story.
“To my surprise, I loved creating desserts that were delicious, passed my taste test, and fit the criteria of being vegan. And so with my last name being Tubbs and my college nickname being “Tubby”, Tubby’s taste was born!”

Olea Lettering Mother’s Day Cards for Your Heartfelt Message
They say actions speak louder than words, but why not give mom both? This Mother’s Day, celebrate moms with something as classy and timeless as her—a Mother’s Day greeting card!
Designed with mothers in mind, Olea Lettering’s owner and creator, Christine, offers a classic present that your mom will keep and cherish for a long time. She shares,
“Mother’s Day cards are special. They let you share why you’re thankful for your mom. The card that I have designed this year for Mother’s Day offers a more “grown up” look to it. Not just cartoon flowers, but a botanical design that shows off the intricate details.”
The card features beautiful spring flowers, elegant writing, and space for you to pen a heartfelt message for the best mom on her special day.
In 2014, Christine’s husband encouraged her to take up a new hobby. Soon after, she picked up her first calligraphy tools and found herself learning a new skill and discovering a newfound passion.
Christine named her brand Olea, the Latin word for olive, and describes it as a small business with a big heart for creating one-of-a-kind pieces. She shares on her website,
“Working on art certainly brings me peace and it’s my desire that when you purchase one of my pieces for your home or to gift someone, that it brings you the same peace. “
Gift mom a heartfelt message to honor and celebrate her. As Christine would say, “Get ahead of the game and grab a Mother’s Day card while they are still in stock. You’ll get bonus points for shopping small, too!”
We’re simply pleased to have helped Christine bring her Mother’s Day greeting card design to life!
“These are my first professionally printed cards! I loved the process of designing and then figuring out how to print them and where to print them.”
Maxxitreats for the Furmoms Who Adore Their Pets
Mother’s Day is a celebration of motherhood; the moms, grandmas, and mother figures who nurtured us in all or certain aspects of our lives.
But, wait… How about the furmoms? Settle down, we did not forget about them. In fact, here’s Maxxitreats to delight the “hoomans” with your thoughtful present, not for them but for their furkids!
If there’s one thing we know about furmoms (or pet moms if you’re not familiar with the term), it’s that they love to spoil their pets! Not just with hugs and kisses, but also with toys, gear, and of course, healthy treats!
This Mother’s Day, surprise them with something special for their furbabies. Maxxitreats owner Marilyn Figueroa, was happy to share some recommendations:
“We recommend Salmon Pea, it has Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon, Organic Farm Fresh Peas and Organic Whole Wheat Flour. It has become #1 so far because it is for both our feline friends as well as our canine companions.”
Based in North Carolina, Maxxitreats prides themselves in using 100% organic and natural products, with no preservatives. “All of our ingredients are grown by American farmers and ethically sourced,” Marilyn adds.
Marilyn worked in the corporate world before stepping out of her comfort zone to start Maxxitreats, which was inspired and named after her dog Maxx, a cockapoo.
Maxx loves company. He enjoys playing with his toys and is always excited to welcome visitors but doesn’t like it when they leave. In 2016, Marilyn found a whole new appreciation for her adorable dog:
“I was faced with a serious illness not knowing what tomorrow would bring. Not having Maxx by my side was difficult. When I finally came home from battling APL Leukemia (blood cancer), his excitement was all I needed to push through my days ahead.”
Maxx has always been caring and loving but even more so when Marilyn needed him the most. These days, he sticks by her side, ever-present in every activity.
“Even when I am getting clothes out of the dryer. LOL”
From a furmom to other furmoms, no doubt Maxxitreats’ handmade and baked-to-order dog and cat treats will delight them! Especially since they are all Maxx taste tested and approved.
“Our experience with PrintRunner has been amazing. When I called PrintRunner with my questions they were happy to answer them. After creating my labels and business cards, I chose the quantity, style, uploaded my information which was easy to do. Within a short period of time my products arrived. I was so excited with the outcome. Would definitely recommend PrintRunner.”
