Gifts of Grace
Everyone knows the real reason for the season, but that doesn’t mean you need to avoid giving your loved ones gifts. In fact, now is the perfect time to bestow presents that celebrate the faith of your friends and family. If you’re stuck for ideas, however, this spiritual gift guide will show you what to get.
The Lord’s word
Everyone needs a biblical reminder every once in awhile – sometimes even when the bible is in their hand. The For I Know The Plans Bible cover is beautifully inscribed with the words from Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Adorned with purple paisley patterns and featuring a handy carrying handle and zipper, this cover keeps any bible beautiful and protected.
“The word of the Lord should be welcomed into the home.”
That said, the word of the Lord doesn’t just belong in a book; it should be welcomed into the home. What could be more comforting than a Lord’s Prayer Tapestry Throw? A grown woman’s security blanket, this warm, woven piece printed with elegant script and lovely dogwood flowers will make your friends feel safe and loved every time they relax on the couch.
A spiritual home
Convey the blessings of the Holy Spirit with inspirational gifts for the home. The Thank God mug is a great gift for women of faith who know the power of the Lord, reading “I’m not where I need to be, but thank God I’m not where I used to be.” What a lovely mantra to focus on with every morning cup of coffee!
If you’re more the type to give decorations, try the Angel Egg, which houses a spun glass angelic figurine with 22-carat gold trim. Or, try the She Who Kneels sculpture, featuring an elegantly posed figure with a beautiful message etched in stone. The Angel Wings Photo Frame is a lovely way to memorialize the passing of a loved one. It holds a 6-by-4 inch portrait and stands with an easel back.
If your loved ones prefer gifts with a little more subtlety, go for the 3-piece Faith, Hope, Believe LED candle set. Powered by AAA batteries, they’ll bathe any room in a warm glow and a comforting vanilla scent. Or, try the Metallic Keepsake Dish, perfect for storing jewelry and other small, beloved items. Choose between silver for a friend or gold for a sister.
The holiday season will fly by if you’re not careful, so place your order before it’s too late! If you absolutely cannot decide what to get, buy a personalized gift certificate so your loved ones can choose for themselves.
