If you’re looking for a Christmas gift idea for a missionary also check out our article on great missionary gifts. Check out our 2015 and 2016 lists for more ideas.

Missionary Legos

You’ve built your perfect Lego tower, you’re just missing someone knocking on the door. These Lego-compatible missionary blocks are the perfect touch to your toy set.

Seek: The Original LDS Quiz Game

Rather than looking for the newest and coolest, how about the original. This 1958 trivia game holds up remarkably well as an FHE activity or conversation starter, and can still be bought for under $20.

Mission Prep the Card Game

On the other hand, if you are looking for the latest and greatest, check out the Mission Prep card game, easily the best LDS game of the year. This game is goofy, you win cards by owning the oldest car or stuffing twenty pieces of clothes in your shirt in under a minute.

Stripling Warrior Puzzle

You recognize the image, in this puzzle of the 2000 stripling warriors, but by fading it out and superimposing the scriptural text on top, this becomes an adventure for the most ardent puzzle fan.

Customized Missionary Socks

Missionaries don’t have much room for individuality. These personalized socks then could be the perfect addition to your missionaries wardrobe that silently calls out “This is just for me!” At nearly $14 a pair, they’re expensive socks, but as a fashion statement/slice of home, the price might be right.


T-shirts probably aren’t at the top of anyone’s Christmas list, but these t-shirts are funny enough to make them think twice. We’ve got one quoting the little stream, someone with a very blessed body, and one defiant popcorn lover.

Missionary Onesie

No more wondering what to dress your baby in for church. This adorable missionary costume onesie is available in sizes from newborn to 24 mos, and in a variety of colors.

Oil Vial for the Wallet

The keychain has traditionally been the domain of the oil vial, but why? The “oil vault” as they’ve branded themselves is a credit-card-sized packet for olive oil that comes in a handful of designs. And at only $0.99 per it could be a great gift for a group.

Fandom CTR Rings

This is the perfect way to combine love for the gospel and love for something else. If you’re not sure which one to get, here’s a cheat sheet:

Klingon CTR Ring – Star Trek Fans

Elvish CTR Ring – Lord of the Ring Fans

Gallifreyan CTR Ring – Doctor Who Fans

Mustard Seed Tie Clip/Necklace

This tie clip holds an actual mustard seed reminding us to put our faith to work in line with the message Jesus taught in Matthew 17:20. A similar design puts the mustard seed in a heart-shaped bauble on a necklace.

Silicone CTR Rings

These CTR Rings come in the stretchy foldable silicone that has become popular for pop-jewelry in the last several years. They come in a pack of ten so it can be a great stocking stuffer or gift for an entire class.

Gordon B. Hinckley Postcard

Speaking of gifts for a class, this inspirational quote could be put in a frame for a child, but, at only a dollar a pop, might also work as something you could give away to many of the people in your life.

Beehive Measuring Spoons

For the person who has everything, why not just get them a prettier version of what they already have? Measuring spoons may not pop out as an ideal gift, but these are pretty enough they could double as a wall decoration.

Salt Lake Temple Replica Door Knob

The doorknobs for the Salt Lake Temple may be one of the most iconic designs in the Church. So while I know perfectly well you almost certainly don’t need a paperweight, it’s as good an excuse to get this in your house as any, right?

Food Storage Monthly Subscription

The first steps can often be the hardest for food storage. Prep As You Go offers subscription food storage helping you start to build your collection once a month. For those who are already prepared Crate Club offers specially selected Emergency Prep items.

“PMG” James the Mormon

This hip-hop EP inspired by “Preach My Gospel” is the best LDS-specific hip-hop ever recorded. James the Mormon’s follow up to his iTunes’ topping “I’m Not a Rapper,” includes the duet “Workin'” with David Archuletta.

“Winter Moon” Mindy Gledhill

“Winter Moon” was released last year, but if you didn’t catch it in time for Christmas, do yourself a favor and grab it this time around. Her unique take on classics is combined with enough earworm originals including the title track to keep you smiling all Christmas long.

 Book of Mormon Study Guide for Preschoolers

When I hear study guide for preschoolers, I roll my eyes. But they should have called this the Ultimate Sacrament Meeting Survival Guide. There are months worth of worksheets for your preschooler to enjoy.

The Good Shepherd: Psalm 23

If you love artistic depictions of the Savior, then you need to keep an eye on Yongsung Kim. His artistic mission is to present Christ in easy to understand pastoral settings. The collection “The Good Shepherd: Psalm 23” is a perfect introduction to his work.

“The Old Testament Made Harder” James E. Faulconer

Before you send the mob, hear me out. Faulconer goes past the mundane historical details of the Old Testament to the crucial Gospel questions. He may call it harder, but what he means is personal and challenging.

Temple Coloring Book

These beautiful black and white renditions of the temple are perfect for older children to color in, or even for yourself, we promise we won’t tell.

Book of Mormon Central

Book of Mormon Central presents the truth of the Book of Mormon in a way that is both spiritually uplifting and academically rigorous. This book is essential for both the seasoned lover of the book and the beginner alike.


Calendars can be an ideal way to bring an affordable splash of fine art into your home. MormonHub’s picks for 2018 include Precious Savior from a variety of artists, paintings of J. Kirk Richards, and the Covenant Path, the painting like temple photography of Robert Boyd. Of course, if your idea of a great calendar has pretty words rather than pretty pictures, LDS Bookstore has its annual Daily Inspiration calendar as well.

The Book of Mormon Poster

If I have to convince you why having the entire Book of Mormon printed on a single poster for your home, then maybe this isn’t for you. For everyone else, this is a great stylistic touch to an office or bedroom. Those who prefer a single column, Latter-day Home has you covered.

LDS Temples by Jolynn

Every once in a while an artist will approach a subject with such singularity that you stop and pay attention. Well Jolynn Forman, whose work as far as we can tell is largely limited to her Etsy store, has caught our eye. She now has twenty-two temple images to choose from.

Christ Painting

Scott Sumner’s new painting “Light of the World” is quite distinct from the other artwork of the Savior currently available. Deseret Book has a 27X40 for a bargain, but you can order most sizes from Sumner’s website.

Genealogy Art

This unique way to bring your faith into your decor turns your family tree into abstract art. The charts are available in a variety of colors to match any room, and in both individual and couple versions.

Personalized Temple Art

It is often a struggle to find just the right image of “your” temple. But these customizable designs are available not only in a variety of colors but with an image of any single operating temple!
