15 Gift Ideas for Christian Women
For the Go-Getter
1. Make It Happen: Surrender Your Fear. Take the Leap. Live On Purpose. – Lara Casey
Ever since I discovered PowerSheets (see below), I’ve been in love with Lara Casey. But I also had some preconceived idea of what she was like and what “her story” was. I was so so wrong. And Make It Happen–along with its practical applications—has a beautiful beauty from ashes story woven throughout.
If you know a woman who has a passion she wants to pursue or is starting to pursue, gift her this book.
2. PowerSheets – Lara Casey
What are PowerSheets? PowerSheets are the reason I have checked off more of my January goals this year than I have in all the years leading up—total.
PowerSheets are simply worksheets that help you plan purpose-full goals and create practical (doable!) action steps to, well, make it happen!
(This is my go-to gift for my closest friends!)
3. The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You – Jessica N Turner
I think of this book as one giant—well-researched—permission slip to make time for what makes you come alive. It’s a stop-feeling-guilty about doing the things that make you a better woman, wife, and mother.
The Fringe Hours would be perfect for the woman who feels guilty for wanting to do things outside of her family or outside of her 9-5 job.
For the Bible Study Lover
4. Life Application Study Bible (NIV)
I love LOVE my NIV Study Bible. I love it so much it’s falling apart. If you know a woman who is wanting to dig deeper into God’s Word but doesn’t have a study Bible, this is the perfect gift.
I like the NIV translation because that’s what my church uses, but you can find study Bibles in many translations:
5. Inspire Bible NLT: The Bible for Creative Journaling
This journaling Bible looks awesome—especially for those of us who aren’t especially creative. Not only does it have plenty of space for your own creative doodling, it also has gorgeous coloring pages in the margins.
The Inspire Bible is perfect for young girls, older women, and everyone in between. (Make sure to grab some colored pencils or journaling markers!)
6. Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds by Jen Wilkin
Women of the Word was the first book on Bible study I read. It came highly recommended from some trusted sources (LeighAnn from Intentional By Grace & Victoria from Creative Home Keeper).
It’s an excellent starting place for any woman looking to go deeper into God’s Word.
7. Pretty Journals
With the exception of the Bible itself, nothing has been more impactful for my faith journey than a simple journal. You can make it extra special by penning a note in the front, too!
(I have a thing for wire-bound journals, so that’s what I linked to here. How are we suppose to record our deepest thoughts and brilliance if it won’t stay open?
But for real…do you friend a favor and make sure the journal is spiral-bound or lays flat.)
8. Pretty Pens
So these G2 Pilot Pens are my absolute favorite. I love that they come is so many different colors, and the ink lasts forever!
But really any set of colored pens are a great gift for a woman wanting to journal and dig into God’s Truth. (They even make pens that are perfect for Bible journaling!)
Pretty pens are the perfect pair to a pretty journal!
For the One in Need of Rest
10. Present Over Perfect: Leave Behind Frantic for a Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living by Shauna Niequist
Present over Perfect is one of my favorite writer’s account of realizing that her life had become out of control—although, it was filled with good ministry—and what she did to embrace a simpler, more relationship-focused life.
It’s filled with so many much-needed nuggets of truth like this one:
“The world will tell you how to live, if you let it. Don’t let it. Take up your space. Raise your voice. Sing your song. This is your chance to make or remake a life that thrills you.”
11. Coloring Books
There was a time where I would have had to tell you that coloring books aren’t just for kids but not anymore! They are all the rage now. 😉 And now there are some really great Christian coloring books.
Margaret Feinberg’s are my favorites:
12. A Good Set of Colored Pencils
The truth is while Crayola will work just fine, there is something luxurious and extra-relaxing about coloring with a fancy pencil that goes on smooth. So if you are wanting to give some extra blessings to your creative and in-need-of-rest friends, hook her up with Prismacolors.
They are my favorites. I hide them from my kids…
For Any Woman!
13-15. Sudara, Freeset, Thistle Farms
