20 Gift Ideas for the Wife of a Minister

Updated on July 18, 2017

A Minister's wife needs to feel loved and appreciated for the work she does in the church and as a support to her husband, the minister or Pastor. Here are some gift ideas for her birthday, Christmas, clergy appreciation day, mother's day or any other special occasion.


This is a wonderful way to honor her and show her that you appreciate her, by giving her a surprise birthday party, Christmas party just for her, or when appreciation day comes along. You can recruit church members to help organize this party, the food preparations, where it should be held and so forth.

2. Gift Certificate to a Spa- this is a wonderful way for her to relax and be pampered to relieve stress.

3. Starbucks Gift Card or a Gift Basket with Coffee and Tea items.

4. Gather a group of women together and take her shopping at a mall Or give a mall gift certificate where she can go shopping with her family another time.

5. Gift Sets

This can be a bath gift set, facial, from Mary Kay, Bath and Body Works, Clinique, Estee Laudeer, etc. or a Perfume Gift Set- if you know her favorite type of fragrance.

6. Small Kitchen Appliance- these include Keurig, Magic Bullet, Coffee Press, grill, Blenders, Coffemaker, etc.

7. Gift Card to a Restaurant- This can be at a steakhouse or a restaurant of favorite type of food she likes, whether it is Italian, Indian, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, Southern Style, or anything else.

8. Paid Tickets to a Women's Conference OR Paid Leader's Conference or Spiritual Retreat

In the busyness of being a minister's wife, sometimes a time of refreshing with other likeminded women or even in a retreat place, where there is peace, just to relax and take time off is what she needs.

9. Paid Tickets to see a Favorite Music Artist

Get to know your Pastor's wife. I am sure there is a favorite band, singer, type of music that she favors. Ask her, find out from the Pastor, family member or close friend and then purchase the tickets.

10. Worship CD or Music CD of her favorite artist or type of music- if her favorite type is southern gospel, worship, pop, christian contemporary, jazz, black gospel, etc.

11. Jewelry- a pair of earrings, necklace, bracelet, pendant or an engraved piece of jewelry are all great gifts.

12. Scrapbook or Memory Book- This can include members and families children, photos of important events in the church and so forth.

13. Gift Card to a Bookstore in her town or a Christian Bookstore Gift Card- or an online store like Christianbook Distributors, Amazon, Family Christian Book Store, Lifeway Bookstore, etc.

14. Books by an author she enjoys reading- like Joyce Meyer, Beth Moore, John Bevere, Lisa Bevere, Stormie Ormatian, Elizabeth George, Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Anne Graham Lotz, Lysa TerKeurst or a fiction novel author.

15. iPad, iPod Touch, Kindle or any tablet- purchase this if it is in your budget and if she does not have one or if she would really like to have one.

16. Framed Inspirational Art or Message, Painting- always lovely for women to have.

17. Women's Journal & Devotional- this is something absolutely great for her to have to gain inspirational messages, encouraging words and insights.

18. Handmade Quilt or Afgan blanket

19. Money- a check made out to her.

20. Volunteer to babysit her kids- this can be once a month or weekly.

21. Baked Goods- Pie/cookies- apple pie, peach cobbler, raspberry pie, blueberry pie, or chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, etc.
