Inspiring and informative spiritual books
One of the things you can be almost sure of, when it comes to giving a present to someone into spirituality or a specific religion, is that books are likely to be welcome.
Timothy Keller has been compared to C.S. Lewis - and that's saying something. As a Presbyterian minister has been gathering thousands in his sunday services. As an author he consistently gets hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of five star reviews.
Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life , by the unconventional Zen Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh, appeals to a wide variety of people. It teaches the basics of mindfulness meditation in a way that is both accessible and non-threatening to those who aren't Buddhists. As Thich Nhat Hanh gained his first renown through his peaceful efforts during the Vietnam war, the title is particularly apt.

When you are part of a religious community, but mix with 'the world' as well, it is often comforting to wear some sort of spiritual or religious jewelry. Usually this is either a pendant reflecting your faith or a ring.

Oracle cards make great gifts for people who are into spirituality. There are basically two types: quotes-cards and symbolic cards. On quotes cards you can draw a card to serve as your daily affirmation or just to give you some direction in how to deal with issues in your life. The oracle cards - tarot-cards for instance - can be used for more complex types of divination.
I have picked two of each as gift suggestions.
Spiritual Cards - with quotes
Spiritual Oracle Cards
These require some training, so if you don't have that, start with a deck that includes a booklet.
Oracle cards are a great way to get some insight into the dynamics of your life problems - where you're at, where you're going, what issues you need to take into account.
Whether it's angels, ascended masters or shaman wisdom you're invoking with your oracle cards - what matters most is interpreting them.
The best oracle card decks include some guidance on how to use them. They will help you find your inner wisdom - the cards only being the pointer.
The best way to interpret oracle cards is to meditate on their symbolism: you need to tap into your own subconscious knowledge of the answer to the questions you are dealing with.
Interfaith presents Featuring the International Peace Symbol
These Interfaith Gifts make ideal presents for those special people in your life, where you want to give something that has a special meaning to them and show you have put some real thought into what you are buying. There's gift ideas for people of all ages and different faiths and religions, but who are united in their commitment to World Peace.
The Interfaith Gifts on this page feature the International Peace Symbol, first designed by Gerald Holtom for the British Nuclear Disarmament Movement in 1958. A Conscientious Objector in World War II, Holtom was a graduate of the Royal College of Art.
The original design featured the Cross associated with the Christian Faith, but this idea was discarded as it had too many wrong associations for a symbol that was meant to represent a belief that transcended across all faiths.
Eventually the symbol incorporated the semaphore signals for N and D set against a circle to represent the Globe.
Polished Peace Symbol Pendant - Unisex Jewelry
This beautiful International Peace Symbol Pendant is made from .925 sterling silver and has a diameter of 37.5 mm, making it large enough for a man to wear.
This is just one of a range of designs of T-Shirts from Peacemonger that promotes religious tolerance using religious symbols. The Tee is made in the USA from 100% cotton.
Available in a range of styles and sizes
Calendars, Planners, Datebooks and Agenda Organisers
The Witches' Calendar and Date Book by Llewellyn is a unique project that has been rewarded with great popularity among the pagan and wiccan scene for decades.
The calendar features monthly information on herbs, astrology, spells and rituals. The datebook tops that up with information on the sacred seasons, sabbat, the meaning of colors and their use in ritual etc.
Both are illustrated by Kathleen Edwards.

This popular text is attributed to H.H. the Dalai Lama. Whether correctly or not, I cannot presume to say. However, it really is a very inspiring text.

Live Well, Love Much, Laugh Often - Quotes Gifts
I don't think there is any saying that sums up the ideals of our time better than: "Live Well - Love Much - Laugh Often".
But it's not as easy to do as it is to say, so we like to be reminded. The gift ideas on this page do just that, whether it's a bracelet or a sign to put on your wall. When it comes to home decoration, I personally really like the idea of using a sticker format to put this directly on your wall, but there are other options as well.
Keeping a journal is the best way to remind ourselves, I think. It helps put our mind in order when life keeps on rushing us. Keeping a journal is the one form of meditation I have practiced consistently. What better way to unite living in the now and reflecting on your life?
Often attributed to Robert Louis Stevenson the phrase 'to live well, laugh often and loved much' first appeared in the second edition of 'Heart Throbs' published in 1911. The volume consists of user contributed quotes. Bessie A. Stanley defines success as follows:
He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much; who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who has left the world better than he found it, whether an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had; whose life was an inspiration; whose memory a benediction.
Thank you Brenda for suggesting this topic and many of the products listed here as well as the source for this quote: http://www.cas.sc.edu/engl/emerson/ephemera/success.html.

One of the most popular items in most spiritual households is the singing bowl. It's often used to signal the start and end of a meditation session, and can also be used to meditate ON. Larger singing bowls often have a deeper richer tone and can be heard over a minute long after just one strike.
While I love the sound of my singing bowl, I find that in practice it's way too big. If I ever start giving mindfulness trainings in my own hall, I will be sure to put it on the altar. For now these Tibetan Chimes are more portable and have a great sound too.
