Christianity is the world's largest religion, which is thoughtfully based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ as described in the New Testament of the Bible. The faith encompasses numerous religious traditions that vary widely by culture and geography, as well as many diverse beliefs and sects. Regardless of location or background, those who embrace Christianity share a personal and fulfilling relationship with their lord and savior. If you know an individual that sincerely and prayerfully practices the Christian faith, consider giving them an inspirational gift the next time the need arises. Christian gifts are appropriate at just about any time of the year. Celebrate Christmas, anniversaries, weddings, birthdays, Mother's Day, Easter, corporate events or other special occasions with Christian gifts that speak to the heart. Here are some inspirational ideas to help get you started:
Framed Canvas Replica of The Last Supper: Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece, The Last Supper, has become one of the most widely appreciated masterpieces in the world. It marks an important event in Christianity and is a treasured work of art. Framed replicas of The Last Supper make ideal gifts that reflect your recipient's spiritual and religious beliefs.
Engraved Cross: An engraved cross personalized with your recipient's name or a special message from you is a thoughtful Christian gift that will become a treasured keepsake. You can opt for silver, pewter or brass or have one hand carved from wood.
Christian Wall Plaque: Wall plaques make nice Christian mementos for all occasions. There are many to choose from including those depicting guardian angels, crosses, The Last Supper, Madonna with child and many more.
Bible CD Set: Instead of a traditional paper bound bible, give them a modern version - the New Testament on CD. More than something that is just listened to, an audio bible brings the word of Jesus Christ to life. It is an experience that all Christians will enjoy.
Inspirational Bookmark: A beautifully designed inspirational bookmark is a nice token of your support for the recipient's faith. Choose one that compliments their bible colors or one that contains a special passage from the bible. They'll never lose their place again!
Jesus T-shirt: For a light hearted gift, give them a t-shirt that humorously reflects their devotion. Possible quotes include: Got Jesus and Jesus…Yes, this is my final answer. Or pick one that has an image such as a one way sign pointing to Jesus.
These lovely Christian gifts are wonderful in sharing the Christian faith and perfect for everyday inspiration.
