Spirited Gifts

Each year, in early December we include a spiritual gift guide in the religion section. Suggestions have ranged from a Seven Deadly Sins soap collection to religious CDs. As I sat down to compile this year’s list, I thought of the spiritual gifts I’ve received for holidays. There haven’t been many, I admit. But my favorites include a Tibetan prayer wheel necklace and a book of blessings.

What have been your favorite faithful gifts? I’d love to include some in our upcoming guide. Which ones stand out in your mind and why? Share them with me at Thanks!
