The bible tells us that it is better to give than to receive. Giving gifts brings joy, it is a source of immense delight. Whatever the occasion, giving another person a tangible sign of your affection brings pleasure to the giver as well as the receiver. And, with a little creativity, it can be a whole lot of fun too. It’s all a matter of present-ation.

Let’s say you have decided to give a piece of Catholic religious jewelry in honor of a birthday, anniversary or confirmation. Here are a few ways to make your gift-giving even better. The mode of delivery is what makes the fun and can be tied to the kind of gift you are giving.

1. A Subtle Delivery
Subtlety can be fun. If you want your gift giving to be more private, then leave your beautifully wrapped Catholic religious jewelry on a bed pillow, breakfast plate or in the vitamin cabinet. You could put it on the driver’s seat in her car or leave it on the keyboard at her work computer. The surprise of finding a gift doubles the fun.

2. A Surprise Method Delivery
Any gift occasion is made more special when the one handing over the present is out-of-the-ordinary. Since you probably don’t have a castle page with a velvet pillow standing by, you’ll need to come up with your own special delivery method. Tie your gift around the neck of the family pooch. Have one of the children carry it in on a pillow, in a basket with a bow or atop a decorated cake.

3. A Treasure Hunt Delivery
Think of Russian nesting dolls and you’ll get the idea behind treasure hunt package delivery. It’s the wrapped box inside a wrapped box inside another wrapped box idea. The large wrapped box will throw your recipient way off-track until they get to the small jewelry-sized box deep within.

4. A Hide and Seek Delivery
Double the fun by turning your gift-giving into a game. The scavenger hunt approach is a time-tested way to make the joy last. Inside a nice card, give instructions that lead your recipient to the next clue. You can use riddles or make it plain – it’s all up to you. The final destination can be a party location or it could be somewhere for just the two of you. It depends on what event you are celebrating. Sometimes picture-taking is part of collecting clues, which makes a great memory page for the event.

If you have an upcoming event which requires a gift, think about giving Catholic religious jewelry. It’s a gift that says you love the whole person – body, soul and spirit. And when you come up with a creative delivery plan, your gift becomes that much more wonderful. At the Printery House, we have a selection of religious jewelry. We invite you to take a look. The unique presentation is up to you.

Catholic Religious Jewelry: Beautiful and Encouraging

Jewelry is an easy way to add a special touch to an outfit, but it is also a way to express a little bit of who you are. Whether you choose chunky jewelry or delicate and understated pieces, jewelry reflects something about the wearer. Catholic religious jewelry can also be a reminder to yourself and others that you are a person of faith.

Wearing a piece of jewelry connected to your faith can be a constant reminder that you are more than just another person walking through life. You are a child of the Most High God. Like a signet ring on a king, a piece of Catholic religious jewelry can help you remember that you belong to the One who has all authority. On some days it can be hard to remember that you are not walking through life on your own. How welcome on those days is a small piece of jewelry that helps you keep life’s challenges in proper perspective!

But faith-related jewelry isn’t a reminder to you alone. You may put on a necklace, tie pin or bracelet and then forget you are wearing it. Not so for all the people you encounter through the day. They will notice your chosen article and make note that you are a person with faith in God and love for the Son. They may even comment or ask you about it. What a great opportunity then to tell someone else about the triune
God whom you serve! All because you chose to put on a piece of jewelry that has meaning.

Women often choose to wear cross necklaces and bracelets. Thankfully, there are as many styles of cross jewelry as there are personalities. There are simple stainless crosses on silver chains. There are ornate crosses. Crosses can be large or small. Sometimes they are elegant and set pendant-style on a bright-colored background. There is a cross necklace to match every fashion taste.

Women aren’t the only ones who need encouragement in their faith through the day, there are masculine cross necklaces for men too. The Father and Son cross necklace is one example of this. This silver-toned necklace has a cut out cross superimposed upon an outer cross representing Jesus and the Father together in the work of Calvary. The Shield of Faith is another example of a masculine piece of Catholic religious jewelry. This silver necklace boasts a small shield pendant with a cross on one side and the
words of Joshua 1:9 on the back “Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged; for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Catholic religious jewelry makes an ideal gift for any occasion or no occasion at all. Necklaces, bracelets and tie pins with symbols of Christian faith are great for birthdays, Christmas, Easter, anniversaries, or graduations. But they are also good to give ‘just because’. Why not send one to a college student to let them know you are thinking of them and praying for them as they are trying out their faith on their own for the first
time? A friend who lives far away might be blessed to receive a gift that speaks about the faith you share.

Catholic religious jewelry can be purchased at Christian bookstores and gift shops as well as online at vendors such as The Printery House. You don’t need a reason. Life gives us a million reasons to surround ourselves with what is beautiful and encouraging.
