Presents for Church Members: A Buyer’s Guide
Shopping for religious gifts doesn’t have to be a chore. In fact, when you approach it with the mindset that you’re celebrating the splendor of the Lord through tokens and tributes, it can be even more exciting than getting a gift! There are just a few things that you’ll need to keep in mind.
Shop For Their Denomination
Many religious gifts are nondenominational by nature, but if you want to go the extra mile and buy them something specifically meant for their community, that can add a nice personal touch to your present. Just make sure that you avoid offending them by getting something that’s all wrong for their faith.
You’ll also want to avoid sticky issues within Christianity. For example, you might open a can of worms with a gift that implies something about Catholicism.
Match Their Energy and Spirit
Some people worship through loud, joyous celebration. Others are more quiet or private about their faith. This can have a big impact on the types of gifts that they enjoy, so try to find something that meshes with their likes and dislikes.
For example, if they’re serious and solemn about their Sunday mass, they might not appreciate a goofy t-shirt. If they like fun, interactive presents, an angel statuette might get put in a drawer and forgotten.
This might go without saying, but whenever you’re buying a Christian-themed gift, make sure that it bears an appropriate message about God’s love.
Don’t be rude or offensive, and don’t buy anything with a sentiment that will make your gift recipient uncomfortable.
Make sure that it’s the kind of item that will inspire, encourage or stoke the spiritual fire of whoever uses it. They should be able to feel the presence of the Almighty as soon as they unwrap your gift!
These are just a few tips and tricks when wielding your credit card for the Lord. What do you think of our suggestions? Do you like my gift ideas?
Would you add anything to the list? What’s the best religious present that you have ever received? We want to know!
