Little People Nativity

1. Little People A Christmas Story Nativity Set


Do your kids love the Little People play sets as much as mine do? They’re classic, durable, great for imaginative play, slobber-proof and lots of fun! Plus, the Little People Nativity set is a great way for little ones to learn more about Jesus’s birth in a way they can understand (while keeping your grown-up nativity set in good condition!) 

This is definitely one of my absolute favorite Christmas Christmas gift ideas for kids — our kids love it!

How about a fun family activity to help celebrate Advent? Similar to the Elf on the Shelf, but with a more decidedly Christian message, The Shepherd on the Search is a great option. It comes With a cute plush shepherd, a beautiful storybook, a message that’s focused squarely on Jesus, and a lot of fun!

4. Veggie Tales Movies


I’ve been a big fan of Veggie Tales for years – way before I even had kids of my own – but now that I see some of the other alternatives available in kids’ cartoons, I love and appreciate them that much more.

Veggie Tales are perfect for teaching kids Bible stories, important life lessons and morals/values — all while remaining fun and upbeat, not boring or preachy! They’re really funny, and good for little kids and adults alike.

7. Christian Christmas Children’s Books


Growing up, we had a tradition where we read the Christmas story from the Bible every year before opening presents. I loved it and looked forward to it every year.

9. Precious Moments Prayer Pals


My middle son has one of these he received as a gift when he was a baby and it “sleeps” in his bed every night. They’re super sweet and snuggly, and when you press their bellies, they recite a prayer (“Now I lay me down to sleep”). These are a great choice for little ones.

  1. I absolutely love your ideas! I was thinking of many ways I could connect God to my children and these would be great for them. I want them to grow up loving him in all ways as I have when I was growing up. The Christian Christmas books look wonderful. I’ll be sure to look them up once I start shopping for Christmas gifts. Thanks for the great tips!

  2. These gifts are for younger children. I need gift ideas for 10-12 yr. olds. Any suggestions?

    1. The Jonathan Park Audio Adventures would be perfect for that age range, as well as Clubhouse magazine or a fun Bible-themed board game! 🙂

  3. THANK YOU! Great ideas I will incorporate a few of these in my children’s church group
