I’m all about making things! I think gifts from the heart are extra special and rare in this world.
I know not everyone is a crafter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make something super special and meaningful for the people you care about most.
When you receive a heartfelt gift, doesn’t it just hit you in the most wonderful way?
Isn’t it the best feeling to know someone took the time to prepare a special gift for you?
Doesn’t it just echo the ways God does special things for us to show us His love?
And that’s the beauty of a great heartfelt gift! It is a way that we can participate in loving like God.
And every time I make a heartfelt gift, I pray as I put it together. I intentionally celebrate the person who will receive the gift and ask God to bless them through the gift I’ve made.
So this Christmas season, why not pick someone in your life and give them an amazing heartfelt gift? In order to help you, we put together a list of 20 unique and creative ways you can give a heartfelt gift.
Most of these ideas do not require you to be “crafty.” Seriously, just about ANYONE can make these! And after the list, we’ve provided you a great worksheet to help you find and implement the perfect gift for someone in your life!
Below are 20 great ideas for really special and heartfelt gifts any Christian would love.
20 Great Heartfelt Christian Gift Ideas
1. A handwritten prayer you write from the heart.
2. An old photo of the two of you, combined with a special message from you about the memory.
3. A Bible with your favorite verses pre-highlighted before you gift it.
4. Do you have a recipe your special person loves? Why not surprise them with the dish!
5. Make a playlist of your favorite worship songs, or if you go to the same church, a playlist of your church’s most played songs.
6. Take note of any items you own that the person you have in mind has complimented you on. Grab them one of their own and remind them that you took note when they mentioned it before.
7. Make a Scripture deck. Click here are detailed instructions on how to make one.
