Though we’ve already covered “7 Ways to Thank Your Church Leaders and Staff,” you may still want to consider buying a small token of your appreciation for the church creatives in your life. To help, here are five excellent Christmas gift ideas.
(How do I know they’re excellent? I’d be grateful to receive any of them!)
If they’re not already making music or curating the perfect holiday playlist, church creatives are listening to music. An iTunes gift card is the perfect way to help them increase their creativity. And if they’re already set for music, these gift cards can be used for apps, audiobooks, and ebooks.
Personally, I love Word. notebooks. They’re a perfect compact and thin size for taking along with you for any project, anywhere. You could even save yourself some money by purchasing a 10-pack and giving one to each of the church creatives you know.
Most church creatives need a little caffeinated boost on a daily basis, especially given last-minute, Saturday night changes, so why not add some variety to their java-based habit? Check out GearPatrol’s “10 Best Online Coffee Subscription Services” and see if any of those subscriptions might whet the palate of the coffee-drinking creatives you know.
Why do I list two subscriptions? Because they’re the kinds of gifts that give all year long. While you can find a number of sites to help church creatives find excellent training (like Udemy), Lynda.com has been around for a long time and offers a robust list of classes covering the gamut of what a church creative needs to know.
You knew this was going to be included, right? But seriously, our all-new, all-online Flow Creative Arts Conference on April 14, 2016 will be an event that’s both inspiring and imminently practical.
Virtual attendees will see, hear, and interact with keynote speakers like Brad Lomenick, Jenni Catron, Blaine Hogan, Stephen Brewster, and more. Plus, breakout sessions will provide practical insight into specific aspects of being a creative in the church.
What better way to show your appreciation of your church creatives than to purchase a registration for them and allow a day for them to rediscover their flow?
