Pastor's Kids Gifts

Pastor's kids gifts do double duty: they provide joy for the kids and they also encourage your pastor and his wife. Here are a couple thoughts to help you find perfect preacher kids gifts.

1) Be creative. Use your knowledge of each of the children's likes and dislikes.

2) Don't single the kids out in front of the church. They already feel different from all the other children.

3) Don't give them "religious" items. Church dominates their lives already. They just want to have "normal" childhood experiences.

Below are some ideas for Pastor's kids's Gifts.
