9. Savings Bank
This gift is definitely geared towards children. It’s a really cool way for them to practice and grow an understanding of paying tithing, as well as saving money in general! This is great if your children earn an allowance, as they can practice saving up money.
There is an LDS children’s book that says “The Holy Ghost is like a blanket. He is a special gift …to wrap you in a warm and comforting feeling when you are sad or need a friend.”
A popular baptism gift to give is a throw blanket with this quote on it. This is perfect for adults, too.
If you give it to a child, you can also give them the book with it as well!
