Religion-Inspired Gift Ideas

If you're looking for a religion-inspired gift for a friend or loved one, you'll have a lot of items from which to choose. When you're narrowing down your list of possible presents, consider a praying hands figurine, especially if the recipient likes decorative items for their home.

Figurines in the shape of praying hands come in a variety of materials, such as carved wood, pewter clay, or ceramic, depending on your preference and the gift recipient's decor style, if you know it. No matter what your price range is, you can find a figurine to match. If your budget allows, you can also give the figurine as part of a bigger gift. 

Religion-inspired pieces make ideal gifts for almost any type of occasion, such as birthdays, holidays (especially Christmas and Easter), first communions, confirmations, graduations, housewarmings and weddings if the couple is religious. 

If you're crafty, you can make the figurine yourself, or you can purchase it from a store specializing in Christian items or an online retailer. You may be able to buy one from your church if they're available. 

Here are some other religion-inspired gift ideas you can give in addition to the figurine:

1. Jewelry 

Treat a special person in your life to a piece of jewelry that highlights their faith. Some ideas include a gold or silver cross-shaped pendant, earrings, or a charm for a bracelet. You can also have a special message, such as a bible verse or an inspirational quote, etched into a bracelet as a personalized touch. 

2. Water Bottle

If the celebrant is an athlete or just loves to run or hike on a regular basis, surprise them with a water bottle featuring a religious symbol, such as a cross or praying hands to coordinate with the figurine. Choose a high-quality bottle, such as one made of insulated stainless steel, so that it lasts longer and keeps drinks cold or hot, depending on the beverage. 

3. Bible Verse Cards or a Calendar

If you're looking for a gift that the recipient can enjoy every day, consider daily bible verse cards or a wall or desk calendar featuring inspirational pictures and messages. They can display your gift at work or in any room of their house. 

As a personalized touch, have the cards or calendar designed with the recipient's name or have them custom-printed with their favorite bible quotes or images.
