welcome to day four of my holiday gift giving guide!
today i'm showcasing some awesome faith inspired cards along with giving you some additional gift suggestions. these proposed ideals are for friends, fellow church members and leaders or anyone who enjoys inspiring others, with a dash of faith!
the following ideas and suggestions would make a great accent to a set of these faith-inspired cards. you can mix and match the cards to create the perfect set - depending on your recipient.
gifts to warm the heart
in addition to some heart warming cards, how about gift that will warm up your recipient? scarves and matching mittens, a candle with a favorite scent or a coffee mug with a gift card are all great ideas! there are tons of awesome scarves and mittens on etsy - or maybe shop from a local maker. weekend craft shows - especially in the next few weeks have amazing gifts for everyone on your list. in terms of candles - i'm sure we all have more than we need - but on my list are candles with scents you can't find in stores. this is a new one that seriously intrigues me!
inspirational books or gift cards
this idea might appeal to those who are involved in their church or have a deep sense of faith. i can always remember visits with my grandma and hearing about the books she was reading - especially those related to bible study. there are tons of options for women's studies especially. a gift card to a specialty store or a locally owned bookstore could be a great idea. want an ongoing gift? perhaps set up a book club of any variety with a handful of pals and you'll have a monthly event to look forward to. the gift of time is certainly a precious one.
flowers and plants
succulents are all the rage right now and they're so easy to take care of! i've got a handful on a shelf in the craft castle that i've had for years! they're great to look at, are a fantastic topic of conversation and let's face it, they're adorable! i recently discovered air plants at a craft show and when i find a little room, want to add some to my space. you can even get them on amazon! additionally, there are oodles of cool containers for plants - sure to match anyone's decor style. plus, plants are uplifting and inspiring, a perfect addition to some faith cards like these!
it's my hope that some of these ideas have sparked some inspiration!
