11 Great Gift Ideas for Christians

Updated on December 1, 2016

It's that time of the year again to give gifts to those who mean so much to us. Whether you know a Christian brother or Christian sister in the Lord or are related to them, or you are thinking about giving a gift for all those who served in your church, here are some wonderful gift ideas for Christmas, birthdays and any other occasion.

Christian Books and Journals

For the individuals who love to read, receiving a new book is another new experience. There are so many selections to choose from at the Christian bookstore. If you know what type of books and authors the person’s interest is in, that is a good place to start. Here are some authors to choose from

  • Max Lucado, Dr. Henry Cloud, John Townsend, Kevin Leman, Gary Chapman, Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, etc.
  • For those who love fiction, Beverly Lewis wide selection is a great choice. Other fiction authors are Karen Kingsbury, Francine Rivers novels and Janette Oke.

A Devotional Book by other Inspiring Christian authors is another great choice. Journals are also great as gifts to write your thoughts and prayers, reflect on life’s daily journey.

Christian Music

Giving a CD of a favorite music artist or band is a wonderful gift idea. It brings encouragement through song to the christian believer and helps him/her to focus on the Lord. Does the person love Worship cds, contemporary christian music, rock, hip hop, rap? Some music choices range from:

Worship Music Artist are:

  • Chris Tomlin, Paul Baloche
  • Hillsong, Darlene Zschech,
  • Bethel Music, Jesus Culture, Kim Walker Smith
  • Kari Jobe, Misty Edwards
  • Matt Redman,
  • Israel Houghton

Contemporary music choices:

  • Casting Crowns,Mercy Me, Brandon Heath
  • Francesca Battistelli, Third Day, Meredith Andrews
  • Matthew West, For King and Country
  • Mandisa, Natalie Grant, Michael W. Smith

HIp Hop choices

  • TobyMac,
  • Lecrea,Trip Lee,
  • Kirk Franklin etc.

Rock christian artists:

  • Hawk Nelson,Skillet, Audio Adrenaline

Another Music Choice is giving tickets to a Christian concert featuring their favorite music artist.

Christian Movies

If your christian friend loves movies, giving them a Christian movie is great choice. There are numerous movies with Christian values and standards being enforced. If you choose a movie, make sure it is not something they already owned. Do they like romance, suspense, drama, comedy? Is he/she single, dating, married? Is he/she a teen/young adult/older adult? These are all things to take into consideration. Here are some movie suggestions:

The Kings Faith, Love comes softly,Turn Around Jake, Finding Normal, The Ultimate Gift, Christmas Grace, The Christmas Hope, Revelation Road (Suspense)


More Gift Ideas

Bible

Choose a Bible that is appropriate for the individual. I recommend the Dakes Bible, The King James Version, Amplified Version.

If the individual is always on the go, a commuter, travelling business person or just a busy person who wants more of the Word of God, giving the bible on regular CDs, or MP3 players that come loaded with audio Bibles are a great idea for a gift.

Mugs, Mug Set

For the holidays, Christian Christmas mugs with a godly message and bible verses is a wonderful gift. You can get them in various sizes from small, medium, to large and various colors for all those coffee, tea and hot chocolate drinkers.

Gift Certificates/Gift Cards

Gift certificates are great options for personalizing your gifts. Give a gift card at Christian bookstore such as Lifeway, Family Christian Bookstore or online christian bookstore like Christianbook.com, Cokesbury.

Other gift cards include at a favorite restaurant like IHOP, Ruby Tuesday, Applebees, Mexican restaurants, Olive Garden etc.

You can also give a gift card at a favorite store they shop at, such as Macys, Old Navy, JC Penny, Sephora, Ulta Beauty and many other stores.

Paintings, Plaques, Posters

Plaques, wall art, posters, paintings with Bible verses or inspirational godly words are wonderful to display in the home and different rooms in the house. These always make great gifts.

Personalized Frame Art

This would include getting the person's name, the meaning of their name and a scripture verse all included in one type of paper done professionally and then frame it. Some Christian Bookstores do this. These make great, personal gifts.

Clothes with a Biblical Message

Christians love finding a way to share their faith and the goodness of God. What better way than giving a sweatshirt, T-shirt, scarf, tie, cap, with a biblical message.

Christian Jewelry

There are so wide range of christian jewelry to choose from that will be ideal for men and women. There are Bracelets, Necklaces with bible verses, Cross Pendants, earrings and Rings

Miscellaneous Ideas:

Still not sure what to get? Here are few other ideas: Shofar, Afghan blanket with Scriptures, Ornaments, Tote Bags, Calendars, Pen sets, Gift Basket, Planners, Box with miniature scripture verses and if you can suggest other gifts for Christians, let me know.
