"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows," (James 1:17).
Christians have been given freedom to love and serve and give, just as is written in the Bible: "God loves a cheerful giver."
And every day presents believers with new chances to give of themselves, sharing God's grace and blessings to the people around them. Thus, here is an updated, compiled list of the top most meaningful and special Christian gift ideas to overwhelm a person with God's love in 2019.
Here are Christian Examiner's top 3 Christian gift ideas in 2019:
1) DEVOTIONAL JOURNALS

Man of God Journal with Black Cross Charm

Leather Embossed Journal: For I Know The Plans I Have For You, Jeremiah 29:11
A devotional journal is a great tool to record what God impresses on a person's heart during study time with God's Word. Along with a Bible reading plan throughout the year, a journal will help a person track the Bible topics they've covered. Writing in a journal will help them remember what they've learned all throughout their journey with Christ. Having their own notes will facilitate easier retention of scripture and a deeper understanding of His Word.
2 Timothy 2:15:
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
Giving a loved one or friend a devotional journal encourages the person to grow deeper in God's Word!

For every Christian, the ultimate symbol of love is the cross. Christians understand that the image of the cross always reminds them of what Jesus Christ the Savior accomplished more than 2,000 years ago with his death on that tree. The cross carries a special meaning to Christians, symbolizing the free gift of salvation everyone can receive, through faith. Cross jewelry is an all-time favorite gift for Christians.
1 Peter 2:24:
"He himself bore our sins" in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; "by his wounds you have been healed."
3) SCRIPTURAL SHIRTS
Printed tees are a fashion trend, and these shirts tend to draw attention. Christian t-shirts open the door for Christians to directly and indirectly share the hope they have in Jesus with strangers as well as friends.
1 Peter 3:15:
But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect
BONUS IDEA: THE BIBLE!
Almost everyone wants to experience a bountiful, meaningful, prosperous and successful life, but how can a person gain this knowledge & wisdom? As the answer, wrap this gift and give a loved one the Bible!
Read and obey the Words in the Bible: the "Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth."
Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
