This gift guide will give you some great, and affordable, gift ideas for even the pickiest church member, and also the male parishioners.
Meaningful Gifts For Church Members
Here are 19 Christmas gift ideas that will bring a big smile to the fellow Church members faces.
Bible Cover Bag
Their Bible will stay pristine and clean with a Bible book case like this one, and they will never have to spend precious time searching for it in their overcrowded handbag-we all know the struggle!
I love the floral pattern on this machine-washable cover. However, this case comes in many different colors and patterns, if the floral pattern is not to your liking.
Multiple pockets inside the case also help to organize pens, bookmarks, etc. It is a practical gift they will really enjoy using.
Great gift idea for new and old parish members, alike. These pocket sized scripture cards are sturdy and easy to carry in the bag so the recipient can read the positive affirmations without having to carry the Bible everywhere with them.
Uplifting and full of motivation, these cards will be appreciated by all.
A perfect trinket dish for their cross or rosary beads. It is a small gift, but a thoughtful one, nonetheless.
Even small gifts like these go a long way in showing your appreciation for them. Speaking of rosary beads, check out the next idea on this list.
These small bags are perfect for holding their rosary beads, and you should definitely not overlook them if you have a large group, but your budget is tight.
The silky pouches come in a pack of 12 for under $15- that’s a steal!
They are not exclusively meant for storing rosary beads only as such. The parish members can also use it to store jewelry, medication, etc., whatever they like.
Inspirational Coffee Mug
Not a gift that will only be enjoyed during the holiday season. This gorgeous inspirational mug will remind them of their devotion as they sip their morning coffee.
I must admit, I didn’t intend to add a coffee mug to this list, but, the color and the beautiful design had me sold.
Personalized Mouse Pad
You have the option to personalize this mouse pad with their name and your choice of scripture or a quote.
A well-thought personalized gift epitomizes the personal connection and always has a positive impact on the recipient.
If the church member is a professional, or is regularly involved in creating pamphlets, printing out material for church, etc., for the church activities then this personalized mouse pad will make them feel appreciated.
Personalized Keepsake Box
I know, I mentioned small bags for rosary above. However, if your budget allows or if you truly want to gift something special to a member then check out this rosary box that can be personalized with their name and scripture of your choice.
The lined interior and the smooth metallic finish really makes it worth the price.
A journaling Bible with plenty of space to allow for journaling, drawing, doodling, etc., so they can expand upon their creativity and understanding of the scriptures.
It is a great gift idea for new or prospective parishoners who are just starting out reading the Bible.
Christian Bible Tote Bag
This Christian Bible tote bag is so elegant and eye-catching. The handcrafted bag is perfect for carrying Bible and a few other essentials.
They will get plenty of compliments wherever they take it. It comes in a variety of colors, all unique, and pleasing to the eye. Hard to believe it is so affordable.
Angel Pendant Necklace
I love the design and simplicity of this angel pendant necklace. Dainty jewelry pieces, like this, can be worn with any outfit and to any occasion.
A scripture bracelet, like, this one, will make them feel in the presence of god no matter where they are.
It will be an instant hit with all the ladies.
A gratitude journal is the most effective way to transform our inner self and stay positive. It has multitude of health benefits too, but that’s another conversation.
If expressing gratitude and being more thankful is one of the top priorities for your parish then this gratitude journal would be very well received, and by all age groups.
Gift For Their Kitchen
Do you know someone in the parish who is always whipping up mouthwatering treats for the fellow members? If so, these mason jar measuring cups will make a great addition to their kitchen.
Yes, this gift is not really faith-based, but I did want to emphasize that acknowledging what they do for the parish with small gifts, like this, makes a big difference.
Christian Tea Towels
Another great gift for the parishioner who loves to bring treats to the Church are these faith-based tea towels. This picture does not do justice to these towels.
The coffee tumbler will serve as a great reminder to them of their faith while they are at work, in the park, or wherever they choose to enjoy their hot coffee in this tumbler.
A practical gift that will last them a long time.
Angel Candle Holder
A decorative gift like this angel tea light candleholder will make a great display piece in their living room, etc. It is a great gift idea because everyone likes to light candles throughout the holiday season.
It can be enjoyed any time of the year, but it will, especially, add to the atmosphere during religious holidays.
Christian Faith Keychain For Men
A small, but sensible gift because everyone needs a keychain. The front of this keychain reads “Be Still And Know That I Am God”. It makes a great gift for the males in your congregation.
It comes packed in a gift tin, ready to wrap and gift.
Christian Faith Keychain
I suggested the above keychain for men, and I could not resist adding this inspirational keychain for women. I love that it spells ‘Faith’, but you have the option to choose this keyring with different wordings, like, courage, gratitude, etc.
Very affordable, and you can buy it in a set at reduced price.
You would definitely want to gift some coloring pencils along with this coloring bible. The coloring Bible is a genius idea that helps relieves stress as well.
The book contains a lot of scripture art that the recipient can color in while dwelling on the scriptures meaning.
