If one of your primary love languages is gifts, like mine, I know that you are always searching for creative and unique gift ideas for your loved ones. So I wanted to create a list of my top picks of creative gift ideas for Christian moms. These are gifts that I would personally love to receive and/or give for Christmas, Mother’s Day, my birthday or any day because they enhance your relationship with Jesus, inspire creativity, and help you grow spiritually.
Some of these Christian mom gifts are my own products; some are made by friends. The rest are either products that I use and love, or ones that are on my wish list.

This gift guide is divided up into the following sections:

Of course, I must recommend my own Scripture coloring book for adults – “Delight in the Word of God – Volume 1, Favorite Scriptures”*. It is more than a just a coloring book, as there is not only a coloring page for each Scripture, but also a devotional page and a journal page as well. It contains all original artwork and hand-lettering by yours truly, so it is very unique. But don’t just take my word for it. Here’s a message I recently received from a customer:
I want to thank you JoDitt, for the lovely prayers. You are a real blessing and may God Bless you for what you have done for me and what you are doing for other people. I love your colouring/journalling book. I have many Scripture colouring books but yours is the best I have come across. – Carol G.
I love coloring in my coloring books and writing in my journal, and in my Bible, with glitter gel pens. I really like this set of gel pens by Super Doodle. The set contains a wide variety of colors, including several pinks (my favorite color). I just love how they glitter and sparkle. They come in several different sized sets that are all very reasonable priced.
Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils
I also love (and highly recommend) Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils for coloring in adult coloring books and for coloring in your Bible. They artist quality colored pencils. I have a small set, but would love to have this 72 color set. You simply cannot go wrong with this. It’s a great gift idea for any Christian mom who likes to color in her Bible or in coloring books. Available on Amazon.com.
Inside the box you’ll find colored pencils featuring soft cores that are the artist’s choice for blending, shading and layering. At the same time, Prismacolor art pencils feature pigments of unparalleled quality and leads that are thick and durable. This empowers you to effortlessly transition between forceful lines, delicate blends and smooth shadows.
