Give the gift of God’s words with a beautifully bound Bible. The USCCB has a list of approved Bible translations for Catholics. There are many great options available, including The Great Adventure Catholic Bible from Ascension, the African American Catholic Youth Bible from Saint Mary’s Press, and the New Catholic Answer Bible.

Catholic devotion is a particular custom, ritual, or practice that honors God and the saints. Living Faith provides daily devotionals for adults, youth, and in Spanish. You can also find devotionals from Ave Maria Press.

2. Religious Art

From contemporary to classic, there are numerous religious art options that make the perfect Christian gift ideas for Christmas. You can choose artwork from the Etsy store or hire a designer online to create a unique work of art.

Before purchasing the artwork, make sure it reflects your loved one’s sense of style and adds beauty to their home. Try to ask your loved ones questions about their style preferences to get an idea of what would appeal to them.

3. Prayer Candles

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world” (Jn 8:12). This has inspired the Christian faith to embrace candles in its rituals and traditions. Bring light into the home of your loved ones with prayer candles that include Scripture or essential oils – such as lavender and sage – that bring calm and peace.

Garden of Memories Candle Co. has a variety of candle scents and can be customized as gifts.

4. Personalized Scripture Gifts

Customization makes your Christmas gift feel personal and intentional. Get a customized travel mug for a friend who is always on the go or a water bottle for a family member who loves hikes. Add their favorite Bible verse to give it a more personal touch.

You can get customized gifts from online stores such as Etsy, Lifetime Creations and Uncommon Goods.

5. Jewelry

Faith-inspired jewelry can be a perfect Christian gift for Christmas because a person can wear their faith with them every day.

Consider a cross necklace or bracelets that appeal to everyone. Both have various options and styles that are sure to be appreciated by whoever receives them.

6. Books

Need a gift for an avid reader? Books are a great option. Popular topics include faith, theology, and inspirational stories. If you can, try to support your local bookstores before shopping large online retailers.

Don’t forget about journals! These are used often to write down prayers, ideas, and thoughts from spiritual reflections. This blog offers journals for free writing and with spiritual prompts in the store.

7. Hymnal and Sheet Music

Your favorite music lover would fall in love with the sheet music of their favorite hymn for Christmas. Some song options are their favorite Christmas song, a hymn that was played at their wedding, or a song played when they received one of the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church.

Music lovers would also enjoy a hymnal Christmas gift. Some popular options include the St. Joseph Sunday Missal and the Lead Me, Guide Me Hymnal.

8. Prayer Beads or Rosary

New rosary beads can be a perfect stocking stuffer.

This deep blue crystal rosary comes with a velvet bag to carry on the way to church or a prayer group meeting. This purple rosary with roses is the perfect gift for someone who loves the passionate flower. The Sisters of Carmel make handmade custom rosaries that will add a personal touch.

9. Handmade Gifts

Handmade gifts are great for a personalized touch and small budgets. You can bake cookies or cook your favorite holiday treat and wrap them up as gifts for family and friends. Candles, knitted blankets, and art prints can be wonderful gifts.

You can also support Christian artisans and non-profit organizations by giving handmade gifts. Serrv is a non-profit organization working to fight global poverty through fair trade – ensuring that people who make and grow products all over the world are paid fairly for their work.
