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.

Then again, Jesus is always the perfect gift, isn’t He?

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.

Nativity Scene

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.

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.

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.

962418: Burn the Ships, VinylBurn 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…

1. Don’t Miss Next Tuesday’s Post!

It’s FULL of FREE gifts for you. Shop for self or others. Whatever you do, don’t miss it. Subscribe to KristiWoods.net here.

2. Prayer

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.)

  1. This post reminded me of my days working in our local Independent Christian Retailer store! You provided awesome recommendations, Kristi ~ you are so thoughtful 🙂

    1. How fun that you worked for a local Christian retailer. I’ll bet you saw all sorts of goodies. Hmmm…that might be dangerous for me. I’d want to buy out the store, Charla! 🙂

  2. I am a terrible gift giver. So, Christmas puts a lot of added stress on me. I would much rather find the perfect gift at a random time during the year and give it for no good reason on than to bless the recipient. But your list is so great!! Thanks for sharing the Advent Calendar! Blessings!

    1. What a neat idea–giving throughout the year. Does take off the stress, doesn’t it, Liz? Thanks for sharing your creation with us. Glad to have it in this post. <3

  3. You have a great list of ideas here! Love those nativity sets. And yes, vinyl records for the last 5 years or so have been growing in popularity. My brother has my mom’s old stereo set and has an extensive vintage collection, and now I see my son’s college friends prefer vinyl, too. Lots of new releases on it now!

  4. Great list, Kristi. Love that King & Country album and I certainly had not heard vinyl was coming back! We’ll have to find record players. 😉 Visiting as your neighbor at #HeartEncouragement

  5. Gift-giving isn’t something I feel particularly good at, soI’m always watching for that really good idea list. You have some ideas that provoke me to think a little deeper about what my loved ones might want. Thanks for that. It’s a service!
