When you give unique pastor gifts you don't have to wonder if someone else got him the same thing. Do you know what other people in your church are giving to your pastor for a pastor appreciation gift, a pastor anniversary gift, or a birthday present?
The easy thing is to give money...and every pastor I know has things he could use money for! But money lasts for a short time and rarely creates enduring memories.
So give him or her a unique pastor gift.
You may be buying a gift to give to your pastor yourself. Or, you might be sharing the expense with other people in your church. You could even be responsible for purchasing something that will be presented to your pastor as being from the entire church.
Whatever the case, make it a special gift...a unique pastor gift.

Plant trees in Israel as a very unique gift.
I'm particularly excited to be able to offer this pastor gift. Thousands of years of war, overuse, and drought have robbed the land of Israel of much of its natural beauty. In the Old Testament we read how David fought against a lion to save his sheep. But there are no lions today... their habitat is gone. The Jewish National Fund (JNF) is one organization trying to reverse those trends. And for a very reasonable price, you can have the JNF plant trees in honor of your pastor.

holding Jesus that day,
And it wasn't the soldiers
that caused Him to stay.
It wasn't the nails
through His hands and feet,
That wouldn't allow our Lord to retreat.
His love held Him there,

An amazing display
of His infinite grace.
As He paid the price
for a life that prevails,
Love held Him there...
It wasn't the nails!

As I get older, I find that the gifts that have lasting value are ones that help me remember the people and events which have impacted my life. That's why I strongly encourage gifts that use pictures. It can be a photo scrap book, Photo Mug
, or anything you can put a picture on. Here are a few ideas.
Give yourself a gift this year...
the gift of financial security and independence.
