Giving Away Spiritual Gifts

One of the hotter trends nowadays is giving away christian gifts to friends and relatives. It seems that in the midst of the country’s spiritual reawakening, more and more people are becoming more appreciative of these types of gifts.

However, giving away spiritual gifts is not as easy as just picking out an item from the christian store. There are a few things that one should remember when trying to purchase and give these kinds of christian gifts.

Here are a couple of those reminders when giving away spiritual gifts to friends, family members and loved ones.

Be tasteful in selecting the gifts.

One thing that can be quite difficult when trying to give away spiritual gifts is to become tasteful. People think that since it is a christian item, then it is automatically nice or generally well accepted. However, this is actually a big misconception, as there are truly some tasteless items that are being given away in the guise of christian gifts. Examples of these could be crosses that are overly designed, gaudy jewelry with images of saints, or even other christian items that are made or painted in various wild colors.

Remember that if you would start giving away these types of christian gifts, people may take offense and find them too tasteless. This would not reflect well on you and the appreciation for your gift could be lost. Another thing to worry about is that even if your friend who received the spiritual gift would appreciate it, they may become the target of scorn of other people who find your gift tasteless.

That is why you should try to make your christian gifts as tasteful and inoffensive as possible.

Match the gifts to personal style.

Sometimes, people can tend to become too enamored with the beauty of the spiritual gifts that they actually forget the person that they are giving the gift to. They would just pick out any beautiful item then give it away without any thought as to the receiver’s preference and personal style.

Thus, it is truly important to try and match the christian gifts to the person that you are giving the gift to. If he or she is the type that is proud to flaunt large pieces of jewelry, then perhaps a large decorated cross may be the best option. Similarly, if they are into eyewear then maybe some spiritual shades would be the best bet. On the other hand, if they are not into gaudy or tacky items, then perhaps something more subtle such as scapulars or pendants would be the better spiritual gifts for them.

Basically, you would just need to find something that suits the person that you are giving the gift to.
