If you know people who are passionate about their religious beliefs, finding great ways to celebrate their religion is important. Even if you don’t share the same beliefs, it’s always nice to bond over something that they love.
When your friend or relative has an upcoming birthday or special occasion, you can think of great religious-related items to gift them. By doing so, you can show them that you acknowledge their beliefs and care about supporting them.
If you’re not religious or if you hold a different set of religious beliefs from your loved one, it can be difficult to think of great gifts for them. You want to find something that is unique and thoughtful but also practical for them to use in their everyday lives.
The gifts that you get for your religious loved one will depend on their personal interests, preferences, and beliefs. However, we’ve got a list of general gift ideas that almost any religious person will love.
- Holy Book
Most religions have a holy book or sacred text that details the origins, stories, and teachings of the religion. Getting a holy book for your friend or family member means they can delve deeply into their religion and discover teachings that they have never come across before.
There is a range of holy books and texts and they all come in a variety of languages. For example, you can get a Bible in Spanish, English, or French, depending on your primary language. Make sure to buy a holy book that corresponds to your loved one’s religion and primary language.
- Devotion Journal
Devotion journals are similar to everyday journals, which have been shown to improve self-confidence and lower anxiety. They provide space for you to write a short note each day so that you can vent your thoughts and feelings, which contributes to keeping you healthy physically and mentally.
Many devotion journals also have mini religious passages and quotes that can be used for inspiration and gratitude. Your loved one can connect with God and expand their minds every morning by writing down their inner thoughts and reading the inspirational stories and quotes.
- Bible Verse Cards
Bible Verse Cards are a set of cards that each contain a short passage or religious quote on one side of the card that your loved one can read. On the other side of the card, the interpretation or teachings associated with the passage or quote are written.
Bible Verse Cards are a great way for your religious friend or relative to take a deep dive into the teachings to their religion in a fun and engaging way. The card set is small and easily portable, so they can take the cards wherever they go.
- Personalized Bracelet
Bracelets are a great choice for anybody but they can be extra special for religious individuals. You can personalize the gift by getting their name or an important religious quote engraved into the bracelet.
Your loved one can wear their new jewelry every day to remind them of their favorite quote or can save it for special occasions only.
