Creative Christmas Gifts


What is the most creative Christmas gift you have received? Here is a picture of mine. I know, a coffee cup is not terribly creative, but the thought and planning was what made this gift special.

My wifes grandmother ordered this for me a couple years ago. She had her daughter in law help. They contacted a mutual friend of my brother’s wife who got this picture from my mom. All of this planning and I never knew a thing.

The picture is from a Royal Ambassador campout with my church ( I grew up SBC). I was maybe five or six. It was probably my first overnight group activity. It was a lot of food, fishing, and fun.

God is the giver of the best Christmas gift – Jesus. He put so much planning into this action that many will never know. It is our joy as Christians to share that plan this Christmas with those who do not know Jesus.
