Fathers are the ones who play ball with the kids in the backyard, love to sled down the
hills at the speed of light, and read them stories about super heroes at night. But children of Christian fathers know that dads mean more even than that. A believing dad shows his children what it is like to be loved, guided and cared for by a heavenly Father. On Father’s Day, kids want to inspire the man that inspires faith in them!
Still, if your dad is like the majority of dads, it is hard to pin him down and get him to tell you what gift would make him feel loved and inspired on Father’s Day. Lots of dads live by the “I don’t need anything” motto. Without any ideas from dad, standard gifts lean towards barbeque equipment or outdoors gear. But, Father’s Day isn’t just about what dad needs, it’s about telling him how much you need him and how grateful you are that he is there for you. So here are just a few ideas for inspirational gifts to help you send the message loud and clear on Father’s Day.
Inspire His Love for the Bible
Christian fathers love God’s word, but they may not feel like they have all the time they would like to study and know it better. These dads might really appreciate the gift of a
study bible. Study bibles include helpful notes and references to enrich understanding and application of God’s powerful words without needing to go to other resources.
The St. John’s Bible is a unique Father’s Day gift that could easily wind up being a family heirloom. All the Bible text is written in stunning calligraphy and there are 25 pages of gorgeous illumination. The Bible can be purchased as a complete seven-volume set, or it could be given individually with each new set arriving on Father’s Days to come.
Dads might also like receiving the inspirational gift of devotional reading. The
complete Psalter offers dad rich wisdom and words for contemplation that he can
read day by day. Dads who become well-acquainted with the Psalter are prepared
with God’s perspective on life and the many challenges life presents.
Inspire His Frame of Mind
Dad is carrying a load of responsibility each and every day. Give dad the gift of Christian art so that words of faith are there in the middle of those days. Framed verses like Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength remind dad that it doesn’t depend upon him alone, but on the Savior who empowers fathers to fulfill their role.
Inspire His Hobbies
If dad has a hobby, Father’s Day is a great time to bless him with something that will make his hobby hours more enjoyable. Fathers who enjoy gardening might be inspired by a new garden stone or garden statue. Often these pieces include words of faith and welcome.
There are all kinds of little ways to let dad know that his life of faith blesses your life. The Printery House is an online Christian gift store where you can find all of these inspirational gifts and more. Check it out today.
