I am not really an Easter basket person but as you have read I love giving gifts! I love the time and thought I get to spend searching for the perfect gift and I love the look on the receiver’s face, and this especially goes for children. So, of course, we give our children gifts to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! While thinking of what we will be doing for our children I made a list of the top 10 Christian gifts for kids that will make wonderful Easter gifts! Hope you enjoy and please let me know what you will be doing on April 1st, Easter Day.
This book is geared for all Christian denominations. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful and will keep a child focused on the story. The book is only 40 pages and tells the story of Jesus. You will read about all the miracles Jesus performed, his ministry, crucifixion, and his glorious resurrection.
2. The Crippled Lamb By Max Lucado
I cannot count the number of times we have checked this book out from our local library. The Crippled Lamb is such a wonderful and meaningful story. A little lamb is left behind and told to stay at the stable because he can’t make the long trip with the rest of the sheep. Then Jesus is born and is cold. Throughout the story, the little lamb is told God has a purpose for him he just needs to be patient. It is a wonderful story with the best message.
3. Giraffe 3 Piece Dish Set
How cute is this dish set? The bowl and cup say “God is Great” and the plate says “God is Great, God is Good, Let us Thank Him for our Food.” Best of all the dishes are durable and dishwasher safe, perfect gift! With it only being 3 pieces you could still fit it in a basket if you were a cool basket making person.
4. “You are A Child Of God” Precious Moments Figurine
This is such a beautiful porcelain figure and a special gift for a child. I love pretty much everything Precious Moments makes. This figure reads “You Are A Child Of God” and is the perfect figure to display in a child’s room as a reminder.
5. Precious Moments® Pray it Forward “God’s Love is all Around” Plaque
This plaque is also by Precious Moments. It is so pretty and such a wonderful message reading “God’s Love is All we need” with scripture Jude 1:21 written on the side. The plaque looks like it is made of wood (but isn’t) so it will fit in anywhere. Another reminder that is always fitting in the home and in life.
6. Jesus Long Sleeve T-Shirt
I cannot wait to get these for my kiddos! I love these long sleeved shirts from JCP. They come in 4 colors. Jesus face and word pertaining to him cover the center of the shirt. The shirts are 100% cotton, soft and just absolutely the coolest thing I have ever found for my kids.
7. Precious Moments® Jesus Loves Me Piggy Bank
Precious Moments does it again! These piggy banks are absolutely adorable! Both banks saying “Jesus Loves Me” with a heart. They come in pink and blue, are hand painted, and made of ceramic. I love these piggy banks and they are the perfect kids Easter gift.
8. Tomie dePaola’s Book of Bible Stories
Did you love reading Tomie dePaola’s books as a kid? I loved Tomie dePaola and I still, I am so glad I get to pass on the books by Tomie dePaola to my children. Every Easter and Christmas we get our children Bible books. Whether it is a book of prayers, a collection, or a certain story, it is a tradition we love. I am so excited to have found a collection of Bible stories illustrated by Tomie dePaola! The pictures are wonderful, which is what you always expect and receive from the work by Tomie dePaola. Any child will enjoy this book.
These dishes are just so cute! This set has a lion on all three dishes. This set is also durable and dishwasher safe. The bowl and cup read “Thank You God For Everything” and the plate reads “Thank you God for the world so sweet. Thank you for the food we eat.”. This set is so sweet and will be used with such glee.
And now gift number 10! One of my ABSOLUTE favorite finds:
10. “Silly Rabbit East Is For Jesus” Tee Shirt
Easter is all about Jesus and this shirt is the best of them all. The shirt simply reads “Silly Rabbit Easter is For Jesus” and I could not agree more! This shirt is 100% cotton and 100% awesome. Your kids will love the message and love wearing it!
I hope you enjoyed my second Easter gift list. While we are in the midst of Lent, Easter will be here before we know it! It is the end of February already! When did that happen?!
