I love the Christmas season – the sparkling lights, the endless Christmas music, searching for the right tree, baking cookies, and most importantly, celebrating Jesus. I enjoy everything about it – well, almost everything.

UNIQUE AND CREATIVE GIFT IDEAS FOR MOMS IN MINISTRY:
For the Style Lover:
- Necklace from Estylo Jewelry (Included in Giveaway)
This gorgeous jewelry is handmade by Sandra, a fellow mom and business owner. She specializes in creating customized jewelry such as initial necklaces, bar necklaces, hand stamped necklaces, and personalized bracelets.
I love this necklace combo below, because we all know that most moms love coffee!!
This type of gift is perfect because you can customize it to fit your recipient!
- Shirt from Hope Outfitters (Included in Giveaway)
I recently was introduced to Hope Outfitters when my Bible study group got me a gift certificate to their online store. This company not only makes cute and stylish clothing, but they also do so with a cause. They donate 100% of their profits to organizations that bring needy people hope!
This gift is great for the mom who cares about making a difference in the world! She can wear a sweet shirt while also knowing that your purchase went to benefit someone else in need. Head over to Hope Outfitters to see the options and do some shopping!
For the Book Lover
- Beautiful literary prints from Carrot Top Paper Shop (Included in Giveaway)
I began following Carrot Top Paper Shop on Instagram quite a while ago, and every time I see the posts, I am in love! If you have a lover of classic literature on your list, this is a wonderful gift option!
Jenny Williams, shop owner, creates beautiful, original, hand-drawn illustrations featuring a unique combination of pastels, ink, and colored pencils. All of her prints are printed professionally on white sturdy card stock for long-time use, and shipped straight from her home studio.
From prints of the characters themselves, such as Anne Shirley (my favorite) and Lucy Pevensie, to quote prints from some of the classic books, you’re sure to find something for that bookworm on your list!
- Meet the New You by Elisa Pulliam
This book is great for a pastor’s wife or mom in ministry. In Meet the New You, Elisa Pulliam empowers women to take charge of their own life transformation by engaging in a meaningful relationship with God and His Word. Each chapter gives practical and interactive ways to address some of the biggest obstacles that stand in the way of permanent change.
I have not read this book yet, but I am really looking forward to doing so. I know Elisa personally and she has so much wisdom to share! This will make a great addition to any woman seeking to go deeper in her faith.
- The Words Your Kids Need: The Value of Writing to Your Children and How to Do It With Ease by Lauren Cormier (Included in Giveaway)
This short ebook is written by my friend Lauren Cormier, author of the fabulous blog Oh, Honestly. Through personal stories and practical suggestions, Lauren will get you excited about the many benefits of writing to your kids, help you overcome common roadblocks such as having limited time for writing, and give you an abundance of ideas in the form of prompts, templates, and more.
This makes a perfect gift for a mom in ministry with kids of any age. Since writing to your kids can start at any time, this book is a simple way to inspire and encourage her.
For the Writer
- Living Reflections: A Journal For Cultivating a Life of Praise! by Amy Alves (Included in Giveaway)
This journal is perfect for the mom who wants to include more gratitude in her life. It’s also great for the woman who wants to reflect and appreciate how God is working on a regular basis.
Written by my friend Amy Alves, the journal includes space to record the things you’re thankful for along with reflection questions. It also has weekend space to reflect on what the most valuable thing was during your week and monthly reflection devotionals with journal space to encourage awareness of God’s Word at work in your heart!
- Pencil pouch from DaySpring
One of these sweet pencil pouches would be perfect for the gal who loves to journal or write. As a writer myself, I know I’m always carrying around a notebook and a variety of pens or pencils with me. Having a cute pouch to keep those writing utensils safe would be perfect!

- Handmade string art from Crooked Tree Traders
Perhaps you know a pastor’s wife who has ended up far away from home due to her husband’s calling as a pastor. Whatever the case might be, Crooked Tree Traders has beautiful artwork to remind someone of their fondest memories.
Here’s an example of one of their pieces:
This hand-crafted string artwork is so unique and beautiful, and there are plenty of options to choose from within their Etsy shop, as well as the option for custom orders.
