Christmas, time for gifts. Actually, someone has already begun his rush to Christmas shopping; woe to those who find themselves unprepared, woe to those waiting till last minute, and make someone unhappy. It is such a pity that to some extent the fever for gifts risks poisoning the true meaning of the Ultimate Holiday. Giving gifts becomes almost an obligation, missing the meaning of love and attention to neighbors that should give a more authentic value to the gift. In the end, what really counts, is the thought, the feeling that’s within the gift, and, in case of believers, the spirituality shared by the giver and the receiver. There are many ideas for religious gifts that can help us rediscover the true meaning of the coming holidays. Ideas for young and old, precious, funny, small affectionate thoughts or important gifts, in which the value of the materials is tightly connected to the sacredness of the symbol.
