For those who aren’t aware, the pineapple is the unofficial mascot of the TTC (Trying to Conceive) community. Why, you may ask? Shouldn’t it be an egg?
Well, studies have shown that eating the core of a pineapple may encourage implantation into the uterus. Pineapples are loaded with an enzyme called bromelain — an enzyme that acts as a pain reliever, blood thinner and anti-coagulant, and anti-inflammatory agent. It may help with encouraging embryos to “stick” and also reduce the chance of miscarriage. Summary: Bromelain is nature’s aspirin. Pretty cool, huh? Read more about the benefits of pineapple here.
So, in preparation for my birthday in a couple weeks, I began compiling a wish list for my family and saw a pineapple theme developing. And since my TTC sisters love pineapples as much as I do, I decided to put a list together with the most adorable and unique pineapple products! Enjoy!
This 12 self-monthly (dateless) calendar has space for personal information, birthdays, 65 sketch pages, and 64 lined notes pages. This would be great for keeping track of all of our doctors’ visits and pill/injection schedules. Or, use it for sermon notes, devotionals, journaling, etc.! Comes in white, teal, and peach.
These teeny tiny pineapple earrings make me jump for joy — especially because they are lead/nickel free, and do not tarnish or rust!
Be still my pineapple heart! This guy is reversible and is available in two sizes!
I love this unique and welcoming home accent. The classic gold thread embroidery with the warmth of burlap is stunning! Bonus: It comes in 5 sizes!
Just in time for summer! Props to Lucky Brand for also having a plus size line for this tank.
I love the Life is good brand — it reminds me of Door County, WI where Matt and I vacation. Nearly every boutique on the peninsula has this brand. (And for those who are in the TTC Community, it’s a helpful reminder to have the words “Life is good” on the shirt itself, right?)
Which one should I get — the pink or green one? Girl, I’m getting both!
These spunky socks are ideal for keeping toes warm in those stirrups at our weekly ultrasounds and check-ups.
This personalized stationery set of 10 features your name and a gold foil pineapple — and will definitely leave an impression! Choose from a large variety of colors to make it your own.
How fun would this washi tape be for sealing envelopes to your TTC sisters? Ahh! I love. (The tape with the white background is adorable, too.)
Lovely Décor hand-makes these in 20 different sizes to suit your space! This would be a sweet reminder to have on your desk at home or at work, or framed in your bathroom to see while you’re getting ready. A.dor.a.ble.
This one made me squeal! How scrumptious is this? There’s also a stainless steel strainer.
Make sure you bring this when you “go away on a vacation, just relax, and get pregnant.” (Sarcastic sigh)
Ordering this ASAP since my former umbrella (RIP old friend) turned inside out and couldn’t resuscitate after a blustery Chicago day.
I met Aly Hines through Instagram and felt immediately connected to her. I always get pumped to connect with a sister in Christ who also brings Gospel-centered hope and encouragement to the world. Aly is a talented artist from California, and she designs these adorable pineapple-themed plaques! She can also create customized signs for you! Shop her Etsy store, and visit Her Sword for insights on how to be victorious through Christ!
Growing up, my Dad collected coffee mugs from everywhere. (It drove my Mom nuts). I’m not sure what happened when I turned 30 last year, but I suddenly became obsessed with coffee mugs! When I told my Mom of my new obsession, her first reaction was: “Uh oh.” Whether you drink coffee or not (but how can you not?!), this pineapple mug will brighten your mood! And, in true mug-addict form, I can’t imagine only listing or desiring one. This one is equally adorable as the mug below!
How precious is this jolly greeting card? Perfect for my TTC friends who want to send their love and hugs to a fellow sister during this challenging season. Turtle’s Soup can print a sentiment on the inside of the card for you, or you can simply order it blank on the inside!
Christmas will be here before we know it, and how sweet would it be to display these ornaments as a testimony of your faith and desire to walk daily in Christ? The pineapple has “Faithfulness” printed on it — and what a great representation of a TTC journey to have written on the pineapple! The other two fruits include “Kindness” on a cherry, and “Goodness” on an apple. Perfect for your home, or perfect as a gift!
My home may look like a Hawaiian luau after I order all these items, but I suppose there could be worse situations. Happy shopping, friends!
