The tree is decorated, the garland is hung, the lights are twinkling . . . and you haven’t even begun to think about Christmas shopping (don’t worry—I’m in the same boat).
There’s Uncle Tim, your family’s resident theology nerd; and your niece Katie, who is eleven (or twelve?) and dislikes more stuff than she actually likes; and then there’s your kids’ youth leader, who tirelessly works to teach the Gospel to them each week. It’s a little overwhelming to find thoughtful gifts for everyone on your list.
But fret not! We’ve created a holiday gift guide to help you find the perfect gift for the special people in your life—co-workers, spouses, nieces and nephews, youth leaders, pastors, and more!
