All my favorite things this Christmas: 2015 Christian Gift Guide

on December 10, 2015 by Jami Balmet 0 comments

I love being able to support small businesses, work-at-home-moms, and Christian businesses during Christmas! And this year there are some really amazing products and companies that I’m excited to share.

This Christmas Gift Guide is a mix of gifts for homemakers, kids, and fun gift ideas to send to your hubby.

Christmas Gift Guide

Please note: A few of these gift ideas do contain my affiliate link. But that’s just because they were available and I decided to add them in. This gift guide simply contains all my favorite things this year! Some of them I made into little gift bundles for you.

So without further ado:

My Favorite Picks for Christmas 2015

Coloring Book Bundle

Adult coloring books are all the rage right now! I don’t actually own one, but I’ve been eyeing these ones because they are Scripture based! How fun is that?

Beauty in the Bible Volume 2

Homemaking Ministries Online Conference – 2015

Homemaking Ministries hosted the second annual online homemaking conference in October and it was a huge success!! We had 9 amazing speakers share about 12 aspects of homemaking and the sessions were all a huge inspiration. I can’t wait to go back and to watch each session again.

The live conference was held in October but you can still purchase access to the entire conference!! You will get access to the audio AND video versions of each session as well as the conference notebook and special bonuses.

This year’s theme is The Ministry of Homemaking and covers all aspects of homemaking from planning and scheduling, to motherhood, to Bible reading and Spiritual Disciplines, and more!

And this week only, you can purchase the entire conference for just $24.95 (that’s $10 off the normal price)!!! Just use coupon code: christmas2015 to get $10 off the normal ticket price

Origami Owl Living Lockets

Okay, these are just too cute!! I’ve heard of this company before but never really explored their lockets. You can custom create your own lockets with different faces and colors and any charms that you want inside.

Origami Owl Gift Ideas

It’s a little confusing because you don’t actually buy a locket, you custom build one (which I think is really fun and would make the perfect gift for someone special). Thankfully, they have a Pinterest board with lots of fun ideas.

Check out everything they have here.

owl 7Journaling Bible Bundle

I got my first journaling Bible this summer and I love it. I’m not an artist and it’s just not my personality to draw beautiful pictures on every page – but I do love the extra space in my journaling Bible to take lots of notes, jot down important ideas, or even write in cross references.

A journaling Bible with these accessories might make the perfect gift for someone in your life!

ESV Journaling Bible

NASB Note-Takers Bible

NIV Journaling Bible

ACCU-gel Bible Highlighters (I LOVE these)

Bible Study Pens (they don’t bleed through the page)

Family Christian Sweatshirts

Family Christian stores have their Christian sweatshirts on sale for 50% OFF right now. My very favorite one is this Amazing Grace one. See all their discount sweatshirts for men and women here.

Amazing Grace

Drops of Joy Jewelry

I just recently found these from someone sharing about it on Instagram. They are essential oil necklaces! You drop a few drops of your favorite oil into it and then you can wear it while the oil diffuses around your neck all day long.

I’ve seen other essential oil jewelry before, but these ones are so cute! Check out Drops of Joy to see all their designs.

Deborah & Co.

Deborah & Co. is run by my good friend and fellow blogger, Caroline from The Modest Mom. She recently sent me this adorable outfit that has quickly become one of my favorite. I’m trying to invest in some better outfits this year so that I can simplify my wardrobe. I want to have a few outfits that I totally love rather than many outfits I don’t care about much.

Deborah and co

Here are a few things I love from her store:

Maxi Lace Cream Skirt

Tiered Ruffle Skirt

Honeysuckle Short Sleeve Cardigan 

Cream Lace Cardigan (this is on my wish list!!)

Princess Play Dresses for your little girls

ABC Say It With Me Bible Verses DVD (I just ordered this as a Christmas present for my boys)

Homemaking 101 & 201 DVDs

I love these DVDs and always find so much encouragement (and practical skills) from watching through them!

You can snag both DVDs for just $25! AND this week only, you can use coupon code: Christmas to get 25% OFF the homemaking DVDs; making this set less than $19.50!!! <—- That’s an awesome deal!

Loving Kindness Decorating & Gifts

Loving Kindness Decor

I have an order coming this week of several of their Christmas pillows (I’m so excited – look for a post on them coming Friday or Saturday). They have a beautiful collection of Scripture art prints and pillows that are perfect for decorating your house in a way that creates a Christ-like atmosphere.

I love having home decor that has Scripture on it. Here’s a bit of their Christmas collection that I love.

Christ Centered Decor

You can shop their Christmas collection and their faith & inspiration section. (And make sure to check out all their pillows!!)

Homemaker’s Friend Planner

My very favorite planners are on sale right now!! The Homemaker’s Friend Daily Planner is the one that I have used for several years now and you can order the 2016 edition just in time to start using it.

Through Christmas Eve, you can get 20% OFF your very own planner by using an exclusive coupon code just for my readers. Use coupon code: YWG20. AND these planners make fantastic Christmas presents for friends and family. Check out their bulk pricing discount if you want to order a couple of copies.

What’s in the Bible? ON SALE!

We love these DVDs! I got two of them when I went to a conference a few years ago. They are from the creator of Veggie Tales, but I like them even better.

The new Veggie Tales have become a lot more mainstream – they give good morals and teach kids to be kind, but their emphasis on God’s Word has sadly taken a back seat. The What’s in the Bible? series however, are focused on God’s Word and yet are still really entertaining for kids!

And through December 14th, you can get their entire series that walks you through Genesis to Revelation for only $99! That’s 13 DVDs – we finally took the plunge and ordered the entire set today! This is one of our big gifts for our boys this year. Our older boys are turning 3 the day after Christmas and they are at the perfect age to start enjoying them.

You can also order individual DVDs for only $9.99 if you just want a couple.

Unique iPhone Cases

There’s this really cute Etsy store that has book inspired iPhone cases. My favorite is their Mary Poppins case. It’s on my Christmas wishlist…hint hint Jason. Check out all their unique phone and tablet cases.

The New Pioneer Woman Collection at Walmart

Did you know that The Pioneer Woman recently came out with a brand new line of Kitchen stuff at WALMART? I’ve seen it in person…it’s well made, beautiful, and AFFORDABLE! It’s not in our budget right now, but I do need some new dishes soon. I already have everything picked out that I want. My kitchen will be re-done with Pioneer Woman.

Pioneer Woman Collection

Roxanna’s Candles

Jason loves candles. In the past we’ve always waited for Bath and Body Works to do their 2/$20 sale and then we stock up. But since we’ve learned how toxic commercial candles are, I just haven’t been able to bring myself to buy them.

And since I just don’t have the capacity right now to make my own (with four kids under three), I’ve been searching for a non-toxic candle that actually works well! Then I saw a friend sharing about Roxanna’s Candles on Instagram and decided to do an order.

We are hooked now! They are great quality and actually have a really good smell (some natural candles just don’t put out very much smell). Our favorite for Christmas are Cinnamon stick and spiced pumpkin latte. I can’t wait to try out some of their other scents.


The Biggest Story by Kevin DeYoung

I’ve been eyeing this book since it came out in August and finally ordered it this week for our boys. I’ve heard great things about it – it looks so fun!

You can order The Biggest Story on Amazon!
