15 Christmas Gift Ideas for the Christ-Lover in Your Life
Do you enjoy giving thoughtful gifts at Christmas time? It’s like snapping a puzzle piece into place, isn’t it? There’s a sense of joy when everything comes together.
But for some of us, gathering gift ideas isn’t quite so fluid. It takes a mountain of brain cells building on each other and then a trek up that virtual mountain to generate an idea–and even then we somehow miss the mark of the “perfect” gift.
I’ve put together a helpful list of 15 Christmas gift ideas for the Christ-lover in your life. Perhaps these will help those who select solutions with ease and the others of us, too. 😉 All point toward the Perfect Gift of Jesus Christ.
I snapped the above picture of our nativity scene. It sits on the piano right now. But years ago we propped it on a table where little hands loved to play with it.
What joy in remembering those times.
What joy in celebrating Jesus with the help of a nativity scene. Here are a few sets, and a couple other Christmas-time helps, to celebrate and enjoy Jesus this year.

Bibles and Related Gifts
The Chronological Life Application Study Bible was a birthday gift this year. And I LOVE it. It’s the first time I’ve walked through the Bible chronologically. It’s a bit different, but I found it helpful. This version of the NLT has fantastic notes and insight as well.
|The New Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible|
By James Strong
I use this tool on a regular basis. It helps Bible readers dig further into the Greek and Hebrew meaning of words, opening understanding and offering “a-ha’s” for our faith.
Did you catch my review of this Bible here? It’s a keeper for young ones. Also, we have our winners of The Beginner’s Bible giveaway. Congratulations Joanne Viola and Cheryl Barker!
?? Mystery Bible ??
Within the week, I’ll be posting a review of yet another new Bible you’ll want to consider. 😉 Right now it’s a mystery, but make certain to stay “in the know” automatically by subscribing to KristiWoods.net, if you haven’t already.

|RealTree: Majestic Bible Tabs|
By Ellie Claire
Tabs = lifesavers when trying to find books of the Bible, especially for new Christians and those in groups settings who feel the swipe of shame as they’re leafing through the huge book in hopes of landing the book jackpot. (But I wouldn’t know anything about that!) 🙂
Consider these two options, above and below, for the camo lovers in your life. And if you’re not into camo, other options await.

Isn’t it pretty? Something about that gold and the Christmas season. Oh, and then there’s donning the home with the Word of God. Grabs my heart every time.
|Burn the Ships, Vinyl|
By For King & Country
Vinyl’s coming back, y’all! Couldn’t believe my eyes when scouring the store at Cracker Barrel recently. I did a double take when Bruno Mars stared back at me from a vinyl jacket–available for sale.
A vinyl comeback? (Our friend, Russ, will be excited. He restores old record players and houses a love of vinyl like no other I know.)
Well guess what? For King and Country also drops a new album in time for Christmas…available in vinyl. Fun!
Tony and I attended Roadshow18 this year, a Christian music concert including the likes of Matthew West, Natalie Grant, Social Club Misfits, Zac Williams, and more. For King and Country headlined. And goodness…they know how to put on a show. I awarded them “all-time fav concert.”
The creativity blew.me.away. And it might you as well. So consider this album for the Christ-lovers in your life…or even yourself. And let me know how you like the music, okay?
I hope you find help in these ideas. Regardless, enjoy Jesus, the season, and those surrounding you, friend. Oh, and two more things…

Busyness shifts our focus off prayer–especially in a busy season and when it comes to the husband. He’s a big boy, he can handle himself. Right? Well….
Journey on over to Growing Home Together where you’ll be charged and encouraged to pray for your husband. And while there, skip over to their store for Christmas gift ideas. (I especially love A Mom’s Prayers for her Son. See my review.)
