Deciding on the perfect gift for family members is hard enough. At least with your congregation, you share a common thread of faith and passion that makes gift-giving easier. Here are some ideas for meaningful gifts to exchange with fellow church members this holiday season.
Personalized Gifts To Celebrate Them
Personalized gifts are a powerful way to show someone that you recognize them as an individual worth celebrating this season. Personalization also covers a wide range of gifts and interests, so it is a convenient place to start if you’re still getting to know your fellow church members. From mugs to bookmarks to blessing bars, adding someone’s name and an inscription that you feel empowers them to an everyday gift makes an impact.
Literature To Help Them Find New Insights
A meaningful gift to give to new members of the congregation is further literature. Instead of giving a new Bible, consider options like prayer books, devotions, or tools for Bible journaling. Some Bible workbooks help worshipers apply the written word to their daily lives and tackle challenges with faith at their side.
Services To Offer a Helping Hand
One incredible gift to give this season is an offer of services to your community. Many of your fellow church members have families, jobs, and lives outside church that can get stressful. If you know a fellow attendee needs a hand, offer one. Whether it is a day of babysitting, assistance cooking a large meal, or a hand in arranging holiday décor, friends always appreciate a little help now and then.
Awards To Honor Their Work
Many churchgoers volunteer hours of their time each week, ensuring that the church gives back to your community, spreads the faith, and provides an individualized touch to each sermon. Consider giving gifts like trophies or gift baskets to the members of your congregation that contribute tirelessly to your church.
Of course, the holidays are a fantastic time to recognize your pastor as well. At Crystal Central, we carry a wide variety of pastoral anniversary plaques that allow you to recognize the years of dedication and faithfulness of your pastor or reverend. We offer several plaque styles as well as free message samples to help you find the right words for your inscription.

Our Christian gift plaques recognize an array of events unique to the church and are all engraved with a personalized message that adds meaning to the gifts you exchange with fellow church members this season.
