Gospel-centered children's gift ideas for LDS Parents and Grandparents
Since I am just beginning grand parenthood, a condition of which I am ecstatic about, I am putting together a list of things that I want to give as gifts to my grand kids. First of all, I am planning to give them store-bought, church-related gifts for their birthdays and home made family-related gifts for Christmas. I think. Let's see how it all pans out:
First birthday: A big picture of Jesus to hang on their wall.
Second birthday: A small photo album with pictures of Jesus in it to look at during the sacrament.
Third birthday: "Picture Scriptures"--illustrated stories of the scriptures.
Fourth birthday: A Book of Mormon full of picture inserts cut from church magazines to take to primary.
Fifth birthday: Framed gospel art for their wall.
Sixth birthday: A nicer ctr ring.
Seventh birthday: A soft cover set of scriptures and a home-made scripture carrier
Eighth birthday: Boys--A cub scout shirt, neckerchief, slide, book, and belt. Girls--white baptism dress.
Ninth birthday: A small hymn book of their own.
Tenth birthday: A pack of Mormonads to hang on their wall.
Tenth birthday: Boys--Webelos shirt, neckerchief, and book Girls--
Eleventh birthday: An even nicer ctr ring.
Twelfth birthday: Boys--A new suit. Girls--A new dress.
Fourteenth birthday: A bonded leather set of scriptures and a scripture case for seminary.
19: A genuine leather set of scriptures.
