More Gift Ideas
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.
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
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.
