Spring! Time for spring cleaning in every sense of the word. What has been consuming or cluttering your life and thoughts during the past year? Have you found time to pray as often as you’d like? Read the Bible? Do daily devotions? Perhaps deciding that you can consume fewer “things” and give more of yourself and your time to God will be a calming and cleansing act. The Printery House offers a wide selection of magnetic tablets to help you get organized and list the chores you need to get done. Once the chores are on paper, tackle a few at a time, but then forget about them. Clear your mind and get outside each day to enjoy God’s beautiful creation…the budding trees, the blooming flowers, the sparkling stars. And when you’re outside, be silent…be still and listen for God’s voice. It will be the most renewing part of your day.

There are plenty of opportunities to give gifts to the people who are special in our lives. Choosing just the right gift comes easily to some people – for others, it feels a bit more of a challenge. However, giving inspirational gifts to those you care about can make the job of choosing a gift so much simpler. Inspirational gifts express your feelings in ways that suit any occasion or no occasion at all.
Gifts for the Outdoor Lover
If you have a gardener in your life, there are lots of gifts that speak to their earthly as well as their heavenly passion. Maybe they’d enjoy a statue of St Francis to stand amongst the flowers. Garden stones asking God’s blessing on home and visitors are often welcome gifts for those who dig in the soil. Decorative garden bells add visual whimsy and a pleasant sound to any outdoor space. The words and themes of such gifts say that God is worshipped in the world He has made.
Gifts for Inside the Home
For those who prefer to be indoors, there are more inspirational gifts from which to choose. Three dimensional tabletop plaques have become very popular. These plaques look great resting on a mantle, on a bookshelf, or a dresser. Messages are short and to the point such as PRAY or LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
Wall art inspires with words. Plaques for the wall carry such messages as Do Small Things with Great Love, the words of Mother Teresa. Other times plaques beautifully present the words of the Bible itself. As For Me and My House, We Will Serve the Lord from the book of Joshua is a well-loved verse used to adorn many Christian homes.
Other inspirational gifts include sun-catchers, decorative throw pillows, coffee mugs and more. Figurines like the Willow Tree angel collection or the Jim Shore collection make ideal special occasion gifts and often become collectibles. Whether you are looking for a back-to-school present for your child’s teacher, a birthday gift or something just to say “I’m glad we’re friends” inspirational gifts make it easy to find the right gift for the right person.
Gifts for the Reader
Devotional books, missionary biographies and books on Christian living also make terrific gifts for the people you love. Paired with a scripture-decorated bookmark, books can provide hours of contemplation and several opportunities for meaningful discussion over a warm cup of cappuccino.

While it’s true that children never tire of chocolate and sweet confections why not make this year’s Easter basket a bit more meaningful? There are any number of inspirational gifts parents can tuck inside the brightly colored Easter grass to reinforce the true message of the holiday. And children aren’t the only ones you can bless with an Easter basket, adults also will be blessed by a basket full of special Easter gifts. Here is a list of gifts that you can give to share the message of Easter to get you started.
Little girls will enjoy finding a new cross necklace or bracelet in theirbasket. It might be fun to put her jewelry in a plastic Easter egg – sort of a prize in a prize. Boys might enjoy pocket prayer medallions. Dad, too, might like receiving a more masculine stainless cross necklace. The cross and the empty tomb are at the center of our Easter
celebration and our faith. We wear these symbols in honor of our Lord.
Religious books make terrific inspirational gifts. Choose from children’s bibles, activity books for Lent or Easter (use the Lent books next season) or children’s bible story books depending upon the ages of your children. These books will help your child remember that Easter morning is about more than chocolate bunnies. And they will be the vehicle for many blessed hours together sharing God’s true words.
So much of Easter focuses on children and the joyful hunt for eggs on Sunday morning. But the truth is that Easter is a celebration we share with one another as believers. Isn’t there someone special in your life with which you’ve shared spiritual things? An older Christian who has guided you with godly counsel or a younger believer whom you’ve had the privilege to encourage in the faith? Make this Easter special for them with the gift of religious artwork. Reproductions of icons, stained glass depictions of the Last Supper or a Resurrection Triptych all make terrific inspirational gifts this Easter season.
For those special ones who live far away, consider tucking a religious bookmark inside an Easter card. Look for bookmarks with uplifting messages like No problem is too big for God or Each moment is a new beginning. There also lovely bookmarks bearing the words of scripture itself. Your loved one will be delighted to be remembered and will feel that way every time they open the pages of a book!
At The Printery House you’ll find religious books and jewelry, faith-encouraging artwork and a wide array of bookmarks and Easter greeting cards. We want to help you find the inspirational gifts that will help you share the real meaning of Easter this year.Share This:
