Unconventional Christmas Gift Ideas – For Mormons

Gift IdeasSome people are harder to shop for than others. Especially for members of the LDS community – you can’t just buy someone a bottle of scotch, or an espresso machine and call it good.

Knowing this, I did some extensive searching, and found some ads for unique Christmas gift ideas for your hard-to-shop-for friends and family.

Just happy to be of help.

  1. diet coke shoutout! wooohooo!!
    i hide mine behind the organ. very sneaky like.

  2. Thanks MMM!! I’m glad I decided to read this post today!!! I need like a dozen of those primary bags!!! (Seriously I was in need of a good, clean laugh.) 🙂

  3. These are fantastic…and as I read every one of your posts to my husband during our “senior citizen” scripture study…a primer of sorts….he will be very happy to just look at the pictures! (hmmmm…does that mean I talk too much?….no…couldn’t be….besides, all he has to do is take out his hearing aid…which he occasionally does….and that’s MY
    …(wonderful)….EC 🙂

  4. How about Sacrament Meeting noise-cancelling in-ear headphones? The up-sell model could have 4min MoTab audio bursts for when That One Person gets up to the mic. Get on that, willya?

  5. Not to distract from the levity of the post, but I’m curious. Is the facial hair thing considered to be Church doctrine or Church culture?

      1. I thought I had heard that there was no church-wide policy on priesthood holders wearing facial hair (aside from missionaries and temple workers), and that any other guidelines were left up to local authorities. Unfortunately, I can’t find anything one way or the other in my quick search. Do you know of anything from the Handbook of Instruction or other sources where I could satisfy my curiosity?

        1. Nope. I doubt there is anything out there to satisfy your curiosity. I’ve never heard of a church-wide policy, other than prophets telling us to follow the example of the Brethren in our grooming. I’m quite sure there is nothing in the Handbook about it.

          1. When they were doing interviews before calling our new stake presidency, one of the questions asked of one of the High Council members was “if you are called, would you willingly get rid of your facial hair?” He was clean shaven the next day at Stake Conference when he was called to be a councilor in the stake presidency. The story was actually told by the member of the seventy that was present for interviews and spoke at the general session.

  6. Absolutely hilarious! You really have a Mark Twainish sense of humor. Merry Christmas!

  7. I could use several of those tote bags for my VT sisters. Can you get a discount for buying in bulk? Thanks for the chuckle this morning!

  8. Oh my gosh, thank you so much…needed that very hearty laugh! The martyr glue is especially perfect for my husband. Where can I get some, er, maybe a case?!!

  9. I do believe my Christmas shopping is done. Is there a code for free shipping for any of these products?

Add your 2¢. (Be nice.)
