Holiday Gifts for Bible Lovers
I have to be honest here. I basically created this list based on all the things I would love to get under the Christmas tree this year or that I have considered buying for my own Christian friends (and my teenage daughter)! But seriously – these gifts for Bible lovers will surely make her smile on Christmas morning. The best things to get Christian women for Christmas would be:
- a new Bible
- a cover or case for that Bible
- accessories to use with/in that Bible
Gifts for Bible Lovers – A New Bible
One of the most obvious gifts you can get for any Christian is a new Bible! Most of us have a variety of Bibles that we've added notes in over the years, so a new one provides us with a new sheet to start journaling more notes during Bible study time. There are many different types of Bibles to choose from, including study Bibles, coloring Bibles, and journaling Bibles with decorative colors and inserts. Here are some of my top picks for the Bible lover in your life.
Artisan Collection Bible
Exquisite from the inside out, the NIV Artisan Collection Bible stuns with its printed cover design showcasing hand-painted flair. When the Bible is opened, beautiful art appears on the page edges as you read through Scripture. When you close the Bible, the image vanishes into shimmery foil gilding. In addition to the attractive typesetting, each page of this Bible has lightly ruled, wide margins, inviting you to journal, reflect, take notes, and create art. As you start reading, let your eyes relax as you take in more of God’s Word with the exclusive Zondervan NIV Comfort Print® typeface, carefully designed with custom fonts to be enjoyable and easy to read.
The Woman's Study Bible, Cloth over Board
The Woman’s Study Bible poignantly reveals the Word of God to women, inviting them to receive God’s truth for balance, hope, and transformation. Special features designed to speak to a woman’s heart appear throughout the Bible text, revealing Scripture-based insights about how godly womanhood grows from a woman’s identity as a Christ-follower and a child of the Kingdom. This Bible is the perfect gift for Bible lovers because it is available in all the main translations.
If you want a gift for Bible lovers that will surely get put to good use, a coloring Bible should definitely be on your list! These are regular Bibles that also have decorative verses in the margins that they can color in and add a little creative touch to help them really remember the verses. I got the Inspire Praise Bible a few months ago for my Bible journaling life group and absolutely LOVE it!
Inspire Praise Coloring Bible
The Inspire PRAISE creative Bible is the newest to the Inspire Bible Collection and one that every Bible lover (especially if she loves to color) will want under the tree this year! You can read my review of the Praise Bible and see for yourself! Or you can see some of my favorites from Amazon below:
Gifts for Bible Lovers – Bible Covers and Cases
Another great idea for gifts for Bible lovers is a protective (and pretty) cover or case for their Bible. Many of us like to add notes and other inserts into our Bibles, which can easily fall out from the pages. These covers are not only super pretty, but they help keep little notes and trinkets in place. Some are even designed so you can keep your journaling supplies right there with your Bible so you can easily doodle or journal while reading it.
Zipper Bible Cover
I like this style because it is more like a zippable book cover that keeps any added notes or pages from falling out. Most have a handle that enables them to simply carry it around by the handle which is much easier than carrying the Bible in their arms and worrying about pages falling out. Below are just a few of my favorites (from Amazon).
Totes & Purses Bible Cases
This style is perfect for the Christian woman that loves to keep her Bible with her at all times because it looks just like a purse or handbag! These are also great to have specifically for keeping all of her Bible journaling supplies together with her Bible. She can keep this in her car to have handy for some lunchtime Bible study or for heading to her favorite Bible journaling group.
Gifts for Bible Lovers – Accessories
There are a ton of different Bible and journaling accessories and trinkets that would make excellent gifts for Bible lovers! These not only make great gifts for under the tree but would also be perfect stocking stuffers (because she'll most likely need and want all of them!).
- Bookmarks – Most Bibles come with that single silk place holder so having a variety of bookmarks makes it easy to refer back to her favorite verses of Scripture.
- Bible Tabs – To go along with her new Bible, she'll definitely need a new set of Bible tabs to match!
- Journaling Pencils – Unless she is a seasoned Bible journaler, I recommend the pencils over markers because the markers will bleed through the delicate Bible pages.
- Journaling Notebook – A journaling notebook is great for writing out Scripture and adding more notes than there is space for in her Bible.
Best Gifts for the Bible Lover in Your Life
While each of these would make for the perfect gift for the Bible lover in your life – a basket with several of these would be even better! My ultimate recommendation is to pick out a new study Bible (for actual Bible study time), a coloring Bible (for her Bible Journaling group), a cover or case for each one, along with a handful of accessories (for stocking stuffers)!
I would love to hear what type of Bible gifts you'd love to get this year for Christmas (or just because)! Do you have a favorite Bible or coloring Bible? What makes it so special to you?
