“Bless This Home” Wall Plaque

If you are fortunate enough to have the pleasure of attending a summer wedding this year, be thankful.

The weather is usually the least of a wedding guest’s worries, of course. Coming up with a gift that really means something to the couple is much tougher than choosing wedding attire that will work whether the sun is blazing or the breeze is blowing. Many modern blogs on the subject assume that newlyweds will be wowed by luxury items, large cash envelopes, or one-of-a-kind giftings. But for the sincere Christian couple, online Christian stores offer presents that appeal to their faith, are distinctive and are cost-friendly as well.

If the new couple will have a yard, no matter how small, it can be a nice idea to give them something for their outdoor space. You can find handsome garden stones and statuary with simple words like “Bless This House” that never go out of fashion. Catholic couples might enjoy a St Francis bird bath. St Francis was an amazing 12th century Christian who was so enraptured by the gospel that he shared it with everyone – supposedly even small animals and birds!

Newly-married couples will be setting up house together and what better expression of your support than the gift of a doorknocker? Especially one that bears the famous words of Joshua 24:15 As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Great verses like these can also be purchased as wall art for inside the home. If you prefer the
subtler approach, online Christian stores typically stock a wide array of attractive resin plaques that rest on easels with faith-encouraging messages like Preach the Gospel at all times; use words if necessary.

Most Christian couples would be grateful to receive gifts that help them celebrate important holidays like Christmas too. Nativity sets make unique and treasured gifts for the bride and groom. You can find crèches in all sorts of sizes and styles, some large enough for a mantle or placing under the tree, others ideal for gracing the center of a dining table.

One last suggestion is to order some personalized stationary for the couple. They will have a lot of thank you notes to mail out and, let’s face it, there is a certain charm about seeing your names linked together and officially printed on your own stationary.

Many of these gift ideas and plenty of others can be found at The Printery House. You might take a few minutes and check them out our products to find something the bride and groom will love. Oh, and in terms of the weather, you might consider dressing
for hot weather but bringing along a pretty shawl or sweater, just in case. Men, you’re on your own.

Top Ten Christian Products to Give and Get

Door Knocker
Christ Is The Head of This Household

As more families look to simplify their clutter and their lives, it’s more important than ever to send a gift with thoughtful meaning to help someone share their faith – or simply to encourage them. Gifts and cards with true meaning can find a place in your home, and that of friends and family.

The rise in interest toward creating a space that’s full of meaning, and less full of excess, is fueled in part by Jen Hatmaker’s smash hit book “7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess,” published by Alive Communications. The book reminds readers that all of our resources have the potential to possess us, instead of remaining our possessions, if we aren’t careful.

Here are some Christian products that will remind the recipients to hold on to gratitude and faith:

1. Wall plaque: Choose an uplifting message or a blessing on a decorative Christian wall plaque. It’s a message of faith that can be used in any room or even a garden. It’ll stay when other items get transferred out.

2. Hand-created Christian cards: Everyone appreciates having just the right card to send, and you can tuck in some stamps for a useful, faith-filled gift.

3. Bible: A study bible or devotional bible is always a keeper and can be shared at the right moment with someone else.

4. Devotional: A simple devotional makes a great choice among top ten Christian gifts because it invites the reader to a few quiet moments of prayer and reflection.

5. Jewelry: Necklaces and bracelets with Christian charms are more popular than ever to help share a message of hope and remind wearers what really matters.

6. Calendar: A calendar for the kitchen, filled with scripture, will be appreciated daily.

7. Stationary: Have you ever had your own set of custom stationary? There’s always something special about getting it out to write a note or letter.

8. Door knocker: Remind yourself, and your guests, that Christ rules this home with a unique Christian door knocker.

9. Prayer cards: Send a beautiful set as a gift. They can be shared for years to come as a source of encouragement, and used as simple decorations or even bookmarks.

10. Decorative cross: From wooden to bronze or brightly-colored designs, nothing grounds a person more in the things that truly matter like a beautiful decorative cross for the wall.

If you’re looking for the top ten Christian products to give and get, keep in mind the best gifts have a story behind them – and invite the recipient to create their own story. You can “send something you believe in” with a gift or card from The Printery House.

Best Christian Products for Home and Office

You want your faith to be more than a Sunday morning affair, but when life gets busy, it’s easy to forget that we can ask Christ’s blessing on our errands, trust Him in our business and keep Him as the center of our family unit. That is why adding Christian-themed art and décor to the home and office can be so helpful – it reminds us who we are and what we are about.

There are all sorts of Christian products which can add not only some beauty, but some meaning to your home or office space. Here are just a few ideas for bringing your faith into focus throughout the day where you live and work.

Message Blocks

Message blocks are painted wooden or resin blocks with faith messages painted or engraved in an attractive way. Blocks which proclaim PEACE can be great reminders on the office desk. When the office environment becomes a bit stressful, being reminded that we have access to supernatural peace can really help. A message block on the desk with the words “Whoever Follows Me Will Have the Light of Life” is a good reminder to the Christian and is also a great witness to others.

At the Door

Leaving or entering the house or office is a great time to utter a silent prayer for strength and infilling of the Spirit. A doorknocker with the famous words of Joshua “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” sets the tone. But a plaque with the words of Psalm 121:8 “The Lord will guard your coming and going both now and forevermore” hung beside the door is also a hopeful word of truth.

In the Kitchen

There is a great variety of Christian products that can enliven the kitchen with thoughts of faith. Many people start the day at home or at the office with a cup of coffee or hot tea. Mugs which bear scripture verses or encouragements like “Trust, God is with you, for you, within you” help you get the day going in the right frame of mind. Pretty painted plaques with the fruits of the Spirit “love, joy, peace, patience…” are ideal for the kitchen. Magnets for the front of the fridge with words of faith are another great way to keep thoughts of Christ in the forefront too.

Do you get to feeling like you are on a treadmill when you make copies at the office or are folding laundry at home? Hanging a plaque with the words “I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me” can remind you to call on God for the strength even to do the repetitive chores of life.

At home or at the office, there are Christian products which can help you stay rooted in your identity in Christ. Christian stores like The Printery House offer a wide selection of items including something sure to help you remember that “This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!”
