Chances are we all know someone in need of a little hope as we approach this Christmas season. Or perhaps you’re the one in need of hope. I truly understand how that feels. So this year, I wanted to put together a post with what I think are gifts of hope – gifts that will comfort, provide encouragement, and help us to remember the true reason for our hope – Jesus.
Going through my own marital issues has also shown me, personally, just how much we need hope. And those of us going through this kind of journey are often looking for items of comfort – something tangible that reminds us that we can keep on going each day.
So here are a few of my favorites, in no particular order. I pray that these are a blessing to you or to the one you choose to bless with a gift of hope this year.
Just click the product to view the details.
Hope has been a word I continue to cling to as my husband and I work on our marriage.
I love the simplicity of this mug.
The back reads: “Hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. Heb. 6:19”
A journal – for your prayers, your questions, your favorite verses, for truths that God plants deep in your heart.
The journal reads:
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. -Hebrews 6:19
The charm reads:
God will be with you wherever you go. -Joshua 1:9
I have candle holders very similar to these. It’s so easy to pop a candle in and see the word illuminated.
It’s a calm reassurance that we can have faith, hope, or love when wee need it.
I love the simplicity of this shirt! That’s all we need, isn’t it – hope for today.
How about this pillow? Sometimes we all need the simple reminder that we are loved.
(This product is pillowcase only – no pillow included.
If you need a pillow of this size, you can purchase that here.)
A soft and cozy throw blanket is just the thing for those cool evenings or crisp mornings.
I still have a couple of favorite blankets that I’ll curl up with.
I like the feeling of security that comes in a comfy, warm blanket.
(There are other colors to choose from.)
I particularly liked this brand of Epsom salt.
I’m not a huge fan of lavender scent, but there were some nights where sleep was hard to come by.
I could draw a warm bath, use a little of the lavender-scented Epsom salt and sleep a little better.
Combined with the candles above, this is a very relaxing combination to end a day.
The gifts listed above contain my affiliate links. If you purchase through any of those links, I receive a small commission.
There is one other place where I want to suggest you look for gifts of hope. I am not an affiliate and won’t receive anything for any purchases you make through sharing the link to this lady’s shop.
I think I first came across her on Instagram, but I’m not sure. If you visit her Instagram or Facebook page you’ll find that she has a real heart for the Lord and for creating beautiful pieces that will encourage others in their walk of faith. (You can find links to her social media pages on her shop’s page.)
So – visit Dandelions in December. I’m sure you’ll find something beautiful there. If you click the link to Jewelry and don’t immediately find something you love, there are options for creating your own necklace or bracelet, so you can choose something that will be meaningful to you. You may want to order early, though, as a blessing to her and to you – so that she isn’t swamped with last minute orders, and so that you can be sure to get your order in time if it’s a gift for someone. Dandelions in December – you’ll love her products!
I hope these gift ideas have been helpful,
or that they have helped you think of other gifts that might be appropriate
for the people on your list who could use some Gifts of Hope this year.
