Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts of Faith

Hello everyone!  Today’s gift guide is a little different, and special because it draws on my own traditions and beliefs.  Christmas is celebrated in lots of different ways, but for many people, my family included, part of the holiday is a celebration of our Christian faith recognizing the birth of Jesus.

If you have friends and family who celebrate Christmas from a religious viewpoint, or if you want something special for yourself to recognize your spiritual walk this season, one of these items may be the perfect choice!  Read on for some great faith-based gift ideas!

Many of these items are from a company called Dayspring that offers beautiful cards and gifts.  I’ve recently become an affiliate with them because I think they have so many lovely items to share!

Crazy Cool Threads – “You Say I Am” Tee

Crazy Cool Threads is a company that makes amazing faith-based t-shirts and other items… they’re cute, modern, and feature beautiful sentiments.  With this particular tee, do the words sound a bit familiar?  They’re very similar to (and perhaps based on) the lyrics for Lauren Daigle’s lovely Christian/Pop crossover hit, “You Say.”  It’d make a great gift for someone who loves that song or needs some encouragement… perhaps paired with Lauren’s newest album on CD or vinyl?

Pair with Lauren Daigle’s newest:      Amazon      Barnes & Noble

Dayspring – Inspirational Stoneware Mugs

We pretty much all know someone who lives for their tea or coffee, right?  A beautiful new set of mugs is always a thoughtful gift for them.  This set has four different lovely pastel styles proclaiming Strength, Trust, Hope, & Faith.  (Rather have all of one color/style?  Those gift sets are on the website too!)  Tuck in their favorite coffee or a gift set of gourmet tea bags to finish off the perfect package!

Jesus Calling for Christmas by Sarah Young

Millions of people have loved Sarah Young’s “Jesus Calling” series of devotionals.  Her newest is perfect for this time of year!  It’s a beautiful, undated devotional to savor through the Advent and Christmas season.   I have this one, and you guys, the pages are just stunning.  If you’re giving a gift early on in the season (maybe a gift exchange with a friend?), this would be an ideal choice to give the recipient time to enjoy it.

Nail Cross Pewter Necklace

All of these, you may be thinking, are great, but… what about the guys on my list?  This cross is both substantial and stylish enough that it would look great on men of all ages.

Joy to the World Wall Art

I’m always on the lookout for new Christmas decor, and this simple but lovely piece would blend into nearly any decor.  Order this, and then just make sure you get a big enough box or gift bag… it’s nearly 18 inches across!

Okay, well… I could go on for a while here, but these ideas should serve as great inspiration to choose the perfect gift.

Still need other ideas?  Check out my gift guides focusing on Beautiful Books or on all things Harry Potter!  And, I’m planning one more gift guide launching in a few days.

Best of luck to all you holiday shoppers out there… remember when the going gets tough at the mall, the tough get… well, home, to curl up on the sofa with a good book!  Happy reading!  (And shopping.)

 

 

December on my blog will bring lots of fun content… I’m participating in #Blogmas which is a big deal in the blogging world, as well as Bookending Winter through Bookend Events.  Look for gift guides, Christmas book recommendations, holiday favorites, and more!

  1. oooo I love that t-shirt! Me and my family are Christian/Jewish (a nice mixed bag we are lol) so we do celebrate christmas recognizing it as the celebration of the birth of Christ, so these gifts are super cool and I may just use a couple of these this season!
