What better way to celebrate April as Arab American Heritage Month than wearing a T-shirt that shows off your Arab pride and sense of humor?
We love to wear T-shirts in our family because we are very active and they are easy to clean. We use them to travel in, garden in, camp in, sleep in and go swimming in sometimes too! We also use them to craft with when we get a chance.
In honor of this month, I put togehter a list of Arab themed T-shirts to gift anyone in the family. To make them easy to find, I’ve put them in categories for babies, men and women. I also added T-shirts for those that love Arab food and their country, in all sizes and colors.
I hope you are able to find something to make you, and your loved one, smile in any of these 50 choices.
