LDS Missionary Gifts

If you’ve got a missionary serving far from home, you’re probably looking for ideas and ways to support them while they serve. We know from experience how difficult it is to choose a gift, especially LDS missionary gifts. Here we’ve got some excellent LDS missionary gift ideas to help you show love and inspiration to your missionary.

CTR Rings

CTR rings make excellent gifts for missionaries. Sometimes, it can be really difficult to pick out a gift for a missionary, especially for a missionary serving in a foreign country. A CTR ring is easy to ship, can be worn every day, and is a wonderful reminder for your missionary to choose the right.  If you’re looking for a great gift to send for Christmas, birthdays, or “just because” think about a CTR ring for your missionary.

Inspirational Books

Send your missionary an LDS-themed book. Books written by prophets and apostles are completely appropriate for your missionary. Poems, inspirational books, and magazine articles make superb LDS missionary gifts.

Gift Cards

If there’s one thing a missionary can always use, it’s cash. Gift cards to Walmart, Target, or McDonalds are great LDS missionary gifts. Your missionary will be well fed and be able to pick up some of the essentials he may need. Gift cards can be a little tricky for foreign missionaries, but those serving in the United States should be able to use gift cards just about anywhere.

Care Packages

One of the best gifts for your LDS missionary is a care package. Think about things he may be missing from home or items that he needs on a day-to-day basis. You simply put all the thoughtful items in a box and ship it off! Some ideas for the care package are candy, homemade cookies, a sewing kit, new ties, or shoelaces. Missionaries always appreciate those gifts like razors, nail clippers, and toothpaste. Just think of some of the things that make home comfortable and add those into a thoughtful care package.

While your missionary is out serving the Lord for two years or 18 months, show your love and support with kind and attentive gifts. Let your missionary know you love him and support his decision to serve a mission. LDS missionary gifts can be a little tricky, but with a little thought and some creativity, you’re sure to find the perfect gift for your missionary.

Send Your Missionary To The Field With The Perfect Gift

Do you have a missionary leaving soon or already out in the mission field and need just the right gift for him or her?  Are you unsure what will be useful and memorable for your missionary out in the field?  Of course, you want to get something he or she will love and something that will last as long as and longer than the mission.  You also want to give him or her something that will  speak your love and something he or she will always remember.  Here are a few gift ideas to get your missionary excited about doing God’s work.

Gift Ideas For Your Missionary

  • Scriptures.  Get your missionary a nice set of leather scriptures or a quad.  Have his or her name engraved on the front for a little extra personalization.  Write a note to go with it to make it perfect!
  • CTR ring/jewelry.  Surprise your missionary with a nice CTR ring.  Not only will your missionary always remember to choose the right while serving the Lord, he or she will remember your thoughtfulness always.  To give an extra special memory, have it engraved with a special quote or his or her name on the inside of the band.  If your missionary already has a CTR ring, give him or her a different style of ring, necklace or bracelet with a special gospel message like “hold to the rod” or “return with honor”.
  • Neck tie/tie pin.  For your elder, get a stylish neck tie or several of them.  He needs ties, so make sure he has them and that he will  look good too!  Get him a nice tie pin to go with his ties that will show your love.
  • Clothing.  For your sister missionary, gift a nice blouse or skirt.  Every time she wears it, she will think of you and it will be one of her favorites!
  • Couples gift.  For a missionary couple, give matching jewelry.  For her,  a ring and for him, a matching tie pin.  You could also get them matching rings, or bracelets that have an inspiring gospel message.

Your Missionary Will Love Your Gift

No matter the gift you get your missionary, he or she will be forever grateful to you for your thoughtfulness.  Any gift you gift give with your love will impress your missionary and he or she will love you forever!
