What lovely gift can I get for my friend?
That’s the question that’s been going through my mind.
I’d like to come up with something special, but that fits into our small Christmas budget as well.
You probably know what I’m talking about here.
I could get all the “regulars” – those “specials” that are displayed at the same stores we both shop at, but that feels a bit lame.
I want something more.
But that costs less.
And those kinds of gifts are much harder to find.
So I’ve spent hours and hours researching on that kind of gift.
And now I’m sharing what I’ve found with you. In case you might be facing that same dilemma.
Simple. Special. Affordable.
I think you’re going to enjoy these lovely gift options!

15 Gift Ideas for Every Friend on Your Christmas List
This blanket is so comfortable; there’s something peaceful about being literally wrapped in scripture. I enjoy everything about it, and the kind words sent from the company are a lovely gesture. Highly recommended. Available—>HERE
So I was given an apron like this one, and I wear it ALL the time! I even get compliments on it (because I keep forgetting to take it off when our company arrives – lol!). This apron is seriously cute!! Available—>HERE
Couples with great marriages know one simple truth: the best marriages are made up of many everyday decisions that say, “I love you” rather than those that say, “I love me.”
When we put the other person first, even in little ways, we find true fulfillment. 100 Ways to Love Your Husband offers wives who want to love their husbands practical, hands-on advice to start applying immediately. A wonderful gift to encourage a sister or friend in her marriage!
I’m sharing this because my son got it for me last Christmas and I use it ALL the time! I actually have a couple of other diffusers (don’t tell him, please) but now only use those as a back-up because this one is hands-down my favorite. Why? Because it’s QUIET and it’s CLASSY. I have it right in the middle of my living room and get so many compliments (how often do you get a compliment on your diffuser, really?). Available—>HERE.
*The companion book, 100 Ways to Love Your Wife by Matt Jacobson is also available. 25% off when purchased together! –>HERE
For anyone who longs to experience God in the thick of life’s demands, Sara Hagerty’s Adore offers a simple, soul-nourishing practice for engaging with God in the middle minutes of your day. This is the kind of book you want to read over and over again! (I know because I’ve read through it several times already! ~ Lisa Jacobson) Available—>HERE
6. Rhythms Prayer Journal by Val Marie Paper
I’m not sure there’s any better gift than giving the “gift of prayer” to someone. And I can’t begin to tell you how beautiful and inspiring the prayer journal is and such a truly lovely gift! I have one myself and it’s a real treasure I will always keep. Not only has it inspired me to be more faithful in praying, but I’m grateful for the record it is to keep for years to come. (You might want to also get one for yourself, by the way!). Available—>HERE
I first bought this Belgian Waffle Maker for myself. Then our family enjoyed (and used it often!) so much that I decided to give it as a gift for my sister-in-law. Let’s just say it was a real hit! She’s still talking about it, so I consider that a definite score! 🙂 Available—>HERE
*To complete the gift, I also included this fun cookbook: Will It Waffle?: 53 Irresistible and Unexpected Recipes to Make in a Waffle Iron
I thought soap was simply “soap” until I tried the Bend Soap Company and that changed everything! (at least when it comes to soap :)) And if you’re wondering if this would make a neat gift item for your friend? I’ll just tell you that my young adult children call me up and ASK for this every Christmas. So yes, it’s a terrific gift idea! And I cannot exaggerate the quality of their products. They have some awesome gift sets if you want to go that route, or you can always slip them in as scented stocking stuffers!
