Before you rush out the store to buy a Christmas Gift, consider giving a Christmas gift that will mean just a little bit more.
Free Christmas Gift Ideas
Last December, I had the opportunity to teach a group of women in our church congregation a Christmas lesson. While researching what I wanted to share, I came across this list of 22 Christmas gift ideas that really surprised me.
I usually think that a Christmas gift has to be purchased and wrapped. And while it’s fun to find the perfect gift and wrap it pretty, sometimes a gift that touches the heart will mean a whole lot more.
That’s why I loved this list of Christmas gift ideas. So much so, I have had a copy on my fridge ever since last Christmas. There are some great ideas on here and maybe you, too, will love this list just as much as I did! Giving one of these gifts will not only bring you joy at Christmastime, but can be a great gift any time of the year.
