10 Actually Meaningful Gifts to Give This Year

By Charlotte Van Werven, Writer for Jesus’ Economy

Christmas is nearly here, and now is the time to wrap up that last minute Christmas shopping. Sometimes we wait so long to figure out which gifts we’ll give because it can be difficult to find something that is both useful and sincere. Add consumerism to the mix, and Christmas is even more confusing—with retail commercials throwing us messages of what our family and friends supposedly need to make them truly happy.

But Christmas isn’t about stuff; it’s about Jesus. And the reason we give gifts at Christmas is because we remember the precious gift we were given. So this Christmas, don’t give gifts out of necessity, but give gifts because you’re grateful for the people in your life and you want to bless them with something special.

Here are ten heartfelt and practical gifts you can give your family and friends this Christmas.
