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.
