Easter Gifts For Pre-Teen or Teenage Girls

with a Christian message!

Pre-teens and teens may sometimes feel too old for an Easter basket, or if they do get a basket, may want something other than a toy. Here are 3 ideas to help you with girls who fall into this category of yours!

1. Lord’s Blessing Pennant
It is 100% cotton and 12 1/2″W × 15 1/2″H. The rod is included and the cord is 17 1/2″ L.

This pennant reads: May the Lord bless you and keep you. May he shine his face upon you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26 NKJV and is a great gift for a young lady. You can personalize it as you desire. Here are a few ideas. Use the first name, first and middle name, a nickname, or to whom is giving the gift!
These pennants do take 2 weeks for delivery, so you may want to order soon to receive by Easter!

2. By Grace Alone Necklace OR Walk In Love Necklace.
The by grace alone necklace has an 18″ chain and is gold plated, nickel and lead free.
The walk in love necklace has an 18″ chain and is rose gold plated, nickel and lead free.
Either of these necklaces would be a signature piece for them to wear and be reminded of their faith, and treasure for years to come.

3. Jesus Loves Me Mirror.
This mirror is 17″ D and hangs by a metal chain as you can see in the picture where I am holding it. On the bottom of the mirror it reads: This is the face of someone Jesus loves. I have loved you with an everlasting love. Jeremiah 31:3 NIV.

What a great thing for a young lady to know, and help her to be encouraged and feel extra loved every morning as she looks in the mirror.

4. Holley Gerth Book
If you have ever read a book written by Holley Gerth you’ll know why this book is a must for young ladies. She encourages and inspires in real life situations. These books come in a set of 2, and the “You’re Already Amazing” especially is such a great one for a teen Easter basket!

5. My Darling Canvas
Every girl needs one of these sometime in her life. It has such deep sentiment and love, hanging it in her room would be such a reminder of the darling daughter she is. Personalize it with her name, daughter, or nickname. Sign Mom, Mom & Dad, or how you desire. Comes canvas wrapped or with a black, white, or gold frame for a bit extra.

It reads: My darling_________,
May you be grateful for every breath. For sunshine on your face for God’s grace. For good friends and sweet memories. For red shoes and blue skies. For the kindness of others and understanding souls. For good music and dark chocolate. For quite time and the freedom to dream. For colorful sunsets and raindrops on your face. For a forgiven soul. For inspiration. For smiles and for tears. For mercy. For Jesus.
All my Love_______________.

Christmas Collectibles

Screen Shot 2015-12-11 at 9.56.21 AM

I’ve seen many collectibles such as Precious Moments, Willow Tree, Hummels, and some that are toys, books, or characters. There are so many, cause let’s face it, we love to collect! Creating a series of items, or completing a set is just exciting! We watch for an additional or missing piece in gift shops, garage or estate sales, and second hand stores.  And when we get an item to add to the collection as a gift, it’s even better!

So how about starting a new and unique collection for someone? Something fun but yet with lots of meaning? Well look no further, cause this is an awesome set!

The 12 day of Christmas plates are beautifully designed by Lindsay Letters. You know the song… “One the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me.” Each 7″ porcelain plate is rimmed in gold, and has a specially designed graphic to one of the 12 days of Christmas on in.

Screen Shot 2015-10-09 at 4.04.24 PM

It’s a fun way to serve desserts or snacks over the holidays!

Screen Shot 2015-12-11 at 9.56.21 AMScreen Shot 2015-12-11 at 9.55.38 AM

Or stack on your buffet, or display on your wall!

Screen-Shot-2015-10-09-at-4.04.36-PM Screen Shot 2015-12-11 at 9.56.00 AM

But did you know each day in this song really has a very faith filled and deeper meaning?

The “partridge in a pear tree” was Jesus Christ who died on a tree as a gift from God.The “two turtle doves” were the Old and New Testaments – another gift from God.
The “three French hens” were faith, hope and love – the three gifts of the Spirit that abide (I Corinthians 13).
The “four calling birds” were the four Gospels which sing the song of salvation through Jesus Christ.
The “five golden rings” were the first five books of the Bible also called the “Books of Moses”.
The “six geese a-laying” were the six days of creation.
The “seven swans a swimming” were the “seven gifts of the Holy Spirit”. (I Corinthians 12:8-11; Romans 12, Ephesians 4; I Peter 4:10-11).
The “eight maids a milking” were the eight beatitudes.
The “nine ladies dancing” were nine fruits of the Holy Spirit. (Galatians 5:22 & 23)
The “ten lords a-leaping” were the Ten Commandments.
The “eleven pipers piping” were the eleven faithful disciples.
The “twelve drummers drumming” were the twelve points of the Apostles’ Creed.

Wouldn’t receiving this unique collection of a plate each Christmas be such great gift with such meaning? And there are so many situations you can start a collection like this for someone, such as:

  • A recently married child, starting with their first year together.
  • An adoptive couple, starting with the first Christmas as family.
  • Someone who suffered a loss, starting with their first Christmas apart.
  • A college Graduate, starting with their first Christmas on their own.
  • A Godchild, starting with their first Christmas.
  • A Grandchild, starting whenever just because!

Regardless of what or when, this is a collectible that would be fun to see built on over the years, and have a complete set when finished.

Who you could all bless with this beautiful and meaningful gift each year?

Oh, and if you loving these plates, there is more to the set too!
