Unique Gifts for Mom or Dad

With Mother’s Day less than a week away*, and father’s day not far behind, I thought I would share some unique gift ideas from the Presbyterian Giving Catalog:

  • My mom was a math teacher – and while I never understood numbers the way she could, I appreciated her dedication to encouraging my education. A gift of supplies for displaced students will provide school supplies to students living in a Lebanese refugee camp.
  • I remember fishing with my dad as a kid, at the lake near our house, baiting my line with balls of bread because I was to scared to hook a worm. A gift of tilapia fingerlings can be the start of a flourishing fish farm that provides an ongoing source of nutrition and protein for a family in South Africa.
  • If your mom taught you everything she knows in the garden, why not sponsor a youth agriculture scholarship in her name?
  • If your dad taught you to ride a bike, consider purchasing a bicycle for a pastor in his honor.
  • What about the rhyme, “Night night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite”? A gift of bed bug protective covers can bring peace of mind to a child as they fall asleep.

Our online gift catalog has dozens of options at all price points to make a meaningful gift for the parents in your life – mom, dad, grandparents, siblings or spouses. Each gift to the online giving catalog will receive a digital receipt with attached printable certificate of gift. We will mail you empty cards and (for gifts over $150) collectible ornaments.

*While we can’t promise that a gift made this week will arrive before Mother’s day, these printable certificates can be inserted in your store-bought or handmade mother’s day card for a meaningful last-minute gift.
