Today, we’ll present eight gift suggestions. All items are available from These gifts are neutral and simple yet brimming with thoughtfulness and significance.

In addition to co-workers, these gift ideas can be extended to consultants, vendors, or even the receptionist who greets your weekly calls. If the thought of gifting them this Christmas resonates with you, read on!


#1 LED Light: This personalized LED Light is impactful and chic. It's a great option to use in lieu of a night light at home or showcase in an office. Choose from 10 Bible verses. This gift will come boxed. Extra special step: assemble and present in a sturdy gift box. Another option is to print a picture of the product and include it in a notecard.

#2 Read Me Color Coded Jar: This cute jar includes 67 verses that are color-coded depending on your mood. Yellow is for happy, red is for angry, green is for anxious, and blue is for sad. Extra Special Step: You can gift this in person, or you can ship directly to a friend via Etsy.

#3 Praying Women Sculpture: These beautiful and powerful sculptures are handmade in Scurry, TX out of hydrostone. The artist signs each product and includes a card with their story.

#4 The Lord is My Shepherd Embroidered Sweatshirt: This sweet sweatshirt is unexpectedly powerful. The embroidered sweatshirt is gaining a lot of popularity as of late due to its higher quality and sustainability. Unlike vinyl, this sweatshirt is made to last for years to come. Its quality is as timeless as the scripture!


#1 Personalized Note Pad: A classic wooden cross with a strong serif font for a strong Man of God. These notepads come in mini and regular sizes; both are available in pads of 50 or 100 pages.
