Christmas day is almost here, and some of us are rushing to find the presents for our loved ones. For many of us, the big presents are easy to find. Our families are great at giving subtle, or not so subtle, hints. So, you’ve probably bought your presents for the family. If you’re like me, though, the hardest presents are the little ones, the stocking stuffers. Where can you find good, inexpensive presents to put in their stockings? Here’s a few things you might like:
For the coffee (or milk) drinkers in your family, a Christian mug is a fantastic gift. Not can your loved ones use it every day, it will also remind them that God loves them because of Jesus Christ. You can use one of our Christmas-themed mugs or a general one. Many of our mugs are on sale right now, so act fast.
Mugs make a great stocking stuffer, too. Fill the mug with your favorite sweet treat, like candy or hot chocolate mix, wrap it up with cellophane, and add a small bow for a beautiful presentation. Your family will love it.
An inexpensive piece of jewelry makes for a great stocking stuffer. While any piece of jewelry might be a good gift, Christian jewelry is especially meaningful. They can remind a disciple that Jesus redeemed them with his holy, precious blood. They are called to a higher purpose, following Christ.
Our stainless steel cross necklace is especially popular with guys who don’t like a lot of ornamentation because of its simple elegance and strength. Our Lord’s Prayer line can help remind them to be faithful in prayer.
The 2,000-year history of the Christian church has produced great literature. There are more excellent Christian books than one could ever list in a brief post like this, here are some great examples for adults and kids.
Some of these books may be too big to fit in your stockings, but most of them have an ebook version. Wrap up a photo of the cover in a small box, and deliver the ebook version to them after they open it.
Adults and children love to color, and coloring books are becoming more and more popular. These books usually come with a bendable cover, so they can slip easily into a stocking. Pair it with a new set of colored pencils, and you have a great gift. Here are some good options:
My family has a tradition of giving away an ornament every year at Christmas. When I left my parents house as an adult, I had enough ornaments to fill my own Christmas tree so I didn’t have to buy any. Even better, each one held meaning for me.
Christian ornaments have even more meaning, since they carry the message of our faith through symbols and images. Try an ornament with a classic Christian symbol, a Chrismon, or anything that highlights our savior.
There is one ornament that deserves special mention, a nail. Large or small, a Christmas nail reminds us that Jesus was not born to be a cute little boy surrounded by animals. We celebrate Christmas, because he grew up to die on the cross. This nail ornament reminds the whole family.
If you're scrambling for the last-minute gifts, look no further. These great stocking stuffers will make your family happy, and they can help you finish the shopping that's stressing you out. Even better, they'll remind you and your family that Christmas is about Christ.
