Ahhh, it won’t be long and the snow will be falling, we’ll be belting out our favorite Christmas music, and the smell of fresh pine will fill the air.
I absolutely love everything about Christmas!
And since it won’t be long until we pull out our cherished decorations again, I thought it was high time I put together My Favorite Inspirational Gifts for that special someone on your Christmas list this year.

The Christmas Season
I’m a Christmas lover through and through.
Spending time with family, running in and out of the busy stores to get that oh-so-perfect gift, wrapping presents… the whole season brings me great joy.
I can hardly wait for the timeless movies and all the gorgeous decorations that deck out our houses. (Yep, even the tacky ones!)
Truth be told, I could easily leave my Christmas decor up until the end of January every year! (O.k. if I’m really being honest, I’ve been known to do that a time or two!)
It won’t be long and my husband and I will sit down to plan our Christmas, so I thought it was time to start thinking about what we’ll be giving this year.
And what better way to do that than to share my favorite Inspirational Gifts for Your Christmas List.
MUST-HAVE INSPIRATIONAL BOOKS
If you have a book lover on your list, you won’t go wrong with any of these great ones… Some are old-time favorites of mine and others are new reads that I’ve fallen in love with.
With Chip and Joanna Gaines taking over the world one home at a time, they have inspired us all with their talent, creativity and, most of all, their deep family values.
In their book, they offer a wonderful insight into how they got started and how they’ve relied on God to help them through some of the most difficult seasons in their life.
- Tattoos on the Heart I must say that I think this was my favorite read last year!
Written by Gregory Boyle, a pastor who founded Homeboy Industries (a gang-intervention program located in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles, aka the gang capital of the world.).
He shares his journey of unconditional love and, just like Jesus, meets these kids right in the middle of their life – right where they need him most.
Alert: This book does have strong language.
Jamie Ivey shares her raw and honest story about how she found the unconditional love of Jesus. A great, great read!
We were all created for a specific purpose and Bruce Wilkinson shows how to stop living in your comfort zone and go out and live the life you were created for.
A definite must-read for every Christian!
PRAYER AND QUIET TIME
Since I discovered the power of suiting up with the Armor of God every day, my life has completely changed.
I’ve learned to be confident in what God has promised and how to embrace my trials as opportunities to grow into the person He created me to be.
Here are some of our favorite devotionals and tools that have helped guide my family during our quiet time with God.
30-Day Devotional and Prayer Journal by yours truly.
I’m a huge fan of Sarah Young’s devotionals and it’s where I started really getting to know who Jesus is.
I got these for my guys a couple of years ago and it’s a great one for your football lover.
A friend of mine recently recommended this book/devotional to me and all I can say is that it blew my mind from Day 1!
My poor bible has seen some better days, but there’s no chance I’m giving it up! I’m betting the person on your list isn’t willing to give theirs up either.
Our Bibles have notes in the margin and highlighted verses. I can’t begin to imagine having to start over with a new one. So instead of getting your loved one a new Bible, get them pretty Bible cover instead.
Since I started using a prayer journal every day, my relationship with Jesus has grown immensely and I’ve learned so much by devoting time to Him.
I write out scriptures using different translations, my thoughts about how each verse and daily devotion is relevant in my life, and spend time writing out my prayers each day.
A prayer journal has been a must-have tool in my journey to forging a real relationship with God.
inspirational home decor
- Surrender Crosses by RAD JOY.
Rick and Jackie’s journey will really inspire you, and the crosses will help to deepen your loved one’s prayer walk.
There’s something amazing about nailing your prayers and concerns to that cross, and physically handing them over to Jesus.
Ahhhh, talk about freeing!
All I can say about this tray is…Gorgeous!
If you have someone on your list that loves gorgeous Christian home decor, you’re going to love DaySpring.
They have a wonderful stock of beautiful Christian inspired Home Decor and gifts.
The owners of The Giving Keys is yet another inspiring journey that makes me sit back in awe of how God uses all of us. Be sure to read the story of how Caitlin started this incredible business. I’ll I can say is, “Look at our God!”
Misc INSPIRATIONAL Gifts
If you have someone on your list who loves to plan, you’re going to love The Prayerful Planner.
This gorgeous gem is one of my favorites!
It’ll help your special someone set goals, manage their time, and it will keep their prayer and inspiration life all in one place.
And did I mention they are beautiful?
Another big plus is that this amazing company donates a portion of its proceeds to Compassion International.
That’s a win, win in my book!

Nothing brings a family together like a fun game night, and no game is complete without The Game Ledger!
We love looking back in our ledger, reminiscing on the great times, and prooving who the winner really was!
I know that you may have someone on your Christmas list that truly doesn’t need one more thing.
If that’s the case, consider giving a gift on behalf of your loved one.
This is one of my absolute favorite organizations.
With your donation, you will provide a family with an animal of your choice.
They are then educated on how to care for the animal, providing the necessary food for the family, as well as a way to earn a steady income.
You know….give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he’ll eat for a lifetime.
