The Best Gift Ideas for Latter-day Saints
It can be hard to find the perfect gift for the ones we love. When choosing a gift I typically think about what they like to do, how they enjoy spending their time and basically try and find a gift that they would love!
But it can still be difficult!
When it comes to someone who is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints there are tons of Christian gift options available.
Today I have rounded up some of my favorite LDS centered gifts for all ages. Hopefully you will find a gift below that is perfect for your LDS friend or family member.
Mormon Christmas Gifts
Our Picnic Tree Scriptural Builder Sets
We were sent these adorable sets last year, and they are so fun. Jack LOVES to build with these types of blocks, and it was fun for him to get the Nativity and Nephi and the Broken Bow Set.
Admittedly, I’m not very good at using a paper planner, but I do really like my “Mormon Mom planner“. This company creates planners specifically for LDS women, but they also offer ones that are non-denominational.
I really do love the LDS-based one though. It is so much more than a planner, and I think any women would love it.
Give someone you love the gift of a subscription tie box or shop their vast collection of ties, socks, cuff links, shirts and more!
This is such a good movie to watch as a family. The description from Amazon goes as follows: Kennedy Hansen is a 15-year-old girl with three goals: drive a car, date boys, and be a cheerleader. Even though she contracts a terrible disease, Kennedy is able to triumph over her obstacles and make her dreams come true.
Everyone who has seen this movie raves about it! Even the storyline is sad there is so much hope and goodness in it as well.
Book of Mormon Family Study Guide
I have been trying to find new ways to study the scriptures, especially with my family. I was really excited when I saw this family study guide – it looks SO wonderful, and I actually have one coming to me in the mail. I think any family would appreciate this.
This is the perfect gift for any family who loves to spend time together and work on projects. Each kit includes 1,725 pieces including customized temple spires, windows, doors and Angel Moroni figurine.
This would be great for anyone who loves puzzles. There are lots of options on Amazon so take a look and see what you can find!
This beautiful piece of art turned into a puzzle is perfect for the season. It is a gift that can be enjoyed every year.
Tell Me the Stories of Jesus by Kristen Nelson
We love primary songs in our home. We bought this CD a few years ago, and it’s been loved by all of us. The artist puts such a beautiful touch on these classic songs.
This amazing set of prints is available from Salty Prints by Gina on Etsy and is completely convenient because you simply pay for the download and print at a photo store of your choice. She sells several other beautiful prints and she is very affordable.
If you know someone who loves to watch movies and TV shows on streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime, this suggestion is a no-brainer.
If you don’t know what VidAngel is, it’s a filtering service that always you to remove filth from the shows you stream. It’s a monthly subscription, and it works with existing Netflix and Amazon Prime accounts. You can sign up for a subscription here.
If you haven’t heard Nashville Tribute, you are seriously missing out. They’ve released quite a few albums now, and we love all of them. I think my favorites are “Joseph” and the Christmas CD, but here are the other ones available:
A perfect gift for any toddler! Bring it to Sacrament Meeting, in the car, or use as a quiet Sunday activity. There are also make quiet book patterns available for anyone who is crafty.
We absolutely LOVE these books. They make the Book of Mormon a little easier to understand for small children. Jack has been read them many times, and I honestly think he might know the scripture stories better than I do.
Have a missionary recently come home from their mission? This is a GREAT way to preserve their memories and spiritual experiences. Missionary Memories creates beautiful hardback books that were designed specifically for the LDS person in mind. Here is our full review.
I love having my own hymn book. There is something nostalgic about being able to open it up and use an actual book rather than my mobile device. I bet you’ll find that others feel the same way, too and would enjoy their own hymn book to keep in their church bag.
These are available for the Book of Mormon and the Bible. Each page features a different figure from these books, and they give a description of who they are, what they did, and what their importance was. There is also a family home evening lesson for each page. They are a wonderful resource for adults and children alike.
This is the official songbook for Primary. It is great for Church and home use.
This darling pillow case is one among many you can find on Etsy.
Willow Tree Nativity Set
These aren’t LDS-specific, but they are pretty beautiful! These sets are sold at Deseret Book as well as online. They can be a little pricey, so a collection is often built up over time. But they make for a beautiful gift. My mom keeps her set up all year long.
This is a great gift for anyone who attends the temple or works in the temple.
Subscription to Deseret Bookshelf Plus
Deseret Bookshelf Plus was launched earlier this year, and it’s a great little service. It gives you access to thousands of eBooks and audiobooks that are sold through Deseret Book. It’s usually about $9.99 a month, so I know that anyone who loves to read would appreciate a gift subscription to this. You can get the first month for free!
These beautifully designed temple dresses from Q.NOOR are comfortable and flattering and made with women in mind. It would be a perfect gift for anyone who attends the temple.
Little People Christmas Nativity
Young or old- this is a must have! The adorable durable Little People are darling and so fun for little hands to play with. Or set it up as a nativity to simply be enjoyed.
Salt Lake City Temple Ornament
This beautiful glass ornament of the Salt Lake Temple will become a treasured keepsake for many years. Display on your tree, or give to friends and neighbors as a holiday gift.
There are so many gorgeous prints of all sizes available to choose from. Put it in a pretty frame and have a sentimental and meaningful gift ready to give.
