Easy Christmas Gift Shopping at Augsburg Fortress

November 22nd, 2011 by Beth A. Lewis

I don’t know about you, but when I get near Thanksgiving and I see the list of family members and friends for whom I haven’t yet come up with ideas for Christmas gifts, (much less purchased!), a small bit of panic sets in until the list is completed. So, if you are trying to think of a few inspiring and high quality gifts, I would remind you that you can do some shopping via our Augsburg Fortress, Fortress Press and sparkhouse websites!

Here are a few of my favorites for gift-giving:

For kids:

Our granddaughters, Katelynn & Lindsey, absolutely love the quarterly magazine Spark Family!  And, at 9 & 5 years old, they get excited about receiving something in the mail addressed to them!

And, of course, the Spark Bibles are always a favorite with kids (and their parents & grandparents)

For youth:

If they aren’t in a confirmation class or youth group that uses re:form, you might want to consider giving them a re:form DVD set. It will keep them laughing and help them learn something about our Christian faith.

For adults:

Lutheran Study Bible is a good choice for friends and family who are Lutheran.

One of my favorite gifts to give to Christians of a wide range of denominational traditions is Bread for the Day 2012: Daily Bible Readings and Prayers. With our bulk pricing options on this devotional book, this is a great choice if you are looking for a gift for the entire staff of your congregation or synod, too!  

And, some of the titles in our Compass Series from Fortress Press are perfect small gifts on topics of interest for daily life: Parenting, Traveling, Eating & Drinking, etc. I think that our son & daughter-in-law will enjoy the Parenting book this year since they are new parents to our new grandson, 6-month old Julian.

Is there a musician in your life? Christian Music: A Global History published by Fortress Press is a gorgeous addition to a music lover’s library!

So, if you want to purchase a meaningful Christmas gift to share our faith with those you love, I hope you’ll consider these or other items from our webstores.  

Blessings, Beth
