Do you need some gift ideas for the “older” Christian women on your list? Then keep reading because we have you covered!
When it comes time for Christmas, we all want to give meaningful gifts that matter.
Gift giving is a representation, a symbol of sorts, of the ultimate gift that Jesus coming to earth as a baby was and is to us.
The opportunity we have each year to bless the older women in our lives is such a privilege!
For some of us coming up with gift ideas for others is easy.
But for many of us it can be a challenge to pick out just the right gift that will bless and encourage the recipient in the true meaning of Christmas.
So, today we want to help generate some ideas for the “older” Christian women on your Christmas list.
As women, we were made to give life.
It’s in the very DNA of the way God designed us.
Therefore, the items on this list will encourage and bless the older women in your life to become the women of God they were created to be.
Whether it’s through a practical gift like books, or an action-oriented gift like taking her out for coffee, you will bless the Christian women in your life with life-giving encouragement this Christmas.
