Do you need gift ideas for the Christmas season? Are you still shopping for Hanukkah presents? We want to share with you some wonderful Christmas gift ideas that give back to Israel. 

Many of us have a hard time answering the question “what do you want for Christmas”. We feel like we already have everything! So, here’s an idea: why not request a gift that will be a blessing to those that really need it?

There are ministries in Israel impacting lives through the love of Jesus that need your support. You can let your friends and family know that this is how they can bless you – by giving a gift on your behalf to a ministry in Israel.

Check out FIRM Gift Ideas from Israel below!

But first, there is more you can do!

If you want to bless your loved ones in return, you can order gifts for them from Israel! By purchasing souvenirs and more from FIRM Member Ministries, you are investing in the work they are doing. So, keep scrolling for a list of gifts you can order straight from Israel!
