Some people are just difficult to buy presents for, while others are too easy. Trying to think of suitable gifts for some people can be challenging, but if you are looking for a present for a friend or relative who’s a devout Christian, you don’t need to look any further than this list. We’ve chosen the top 5 gifts for Christians that are certain to make a lasting impact.
#1 – Cross Jewelry
Cross necklaces and bracelets are classic and a lot of Christians wear them. Many people have different cross necklaces to suit different occasions or to match certain outfits. But another factor to consider is that people will appreciate and attribute special meaning to an item of jewelry if it was given as a gift of love. This is only natural. Try and think if the person you’re giving the gift to prefers gold, silver, large, small, ornate or simple jewelry to get the most suitable item.
#2 – Prayer Guidebooks
These can make fantastic presents, especially if you know that the receiver is looking to deepen his or her faith and understanding of the Gospel. There’s a prayer book for every niche and every situation, so you’re sure to find something suitable. Guided prayer books are not only helpful but also a fun way of growing one’s faith.
365-day prayer guides are another fantastic present and of course last an entire year. Another good choice is prayer books for specific topics or life events such as college graduation, marriage or the loss of a loved one. These are more personalized presents and can let the receiver know in a powerful and personal way that you are thinking about him or her.
#3 – Faith T-shirts
Faith-based apparel has become increasingly popular in recent years. People love to express their unique interests and passions in creative ways and unique t-shirts are one obvious way to do that. Everyone wears t-shirts and everyone loves fun and interesting t-shirt designs. Christian t-shirts make a fantastic gift (providing you know the receivers size, of course). More generic blessed or faith t-shirts are excellent choices for all occasions, as well as more specific designs, such as “Blessed Mother of Boys”, for example.
#4 – Bumper Stickers
Many people think these are passé, but they can actually be fun and even insightful. Most people understandably don’t like to see preachy or holier-than-thou bumper stickers, but funny and joking bumper stickers can usually elicit a chuckle from passers-by. Think “My Other Car is a Ferrari” kind of thing with a Christian theme.But, a word of warning: make sure the person you intend the gift for actually uses bumper sticks on their vehicles first!
#5 – Fridge Magnets
Most households have all kinds of fridge magnets they’ve collected over the years. There’s practically an unlimited selection to choose from, so you’re certain to find something suitable for everyone. You don’t tend to see Christian-styled fridge magnets in most retail stores, so by searching online you should be able to find something unique and new.
With a little creativity, it’s possible to come up with a fantastic gift for any Christian. Hopefully this list gives you some ideas to find an unforgettable present!
