About Us


If you’re like me, perhaps you’ve searched for unique, personalized gifts to commemorate important occasions in a spiritual way – only to find that your options are often limited. The approach of a family baptism, which prompted yet another hunt for a special memento that I could personalize, became the impetus for The Christian Gift.

As a landscape photographer with a design background, I thought about how I might use my images to create unique keepsakes. And though it was a baptism that initially got the ball rolling, it quickly became clear that many other categories are underserved, such as:

And so The Christian Gift was born in 2003.

The designs are all original and exclusive to our store. Personalized mementos are our specialty.

How else are we differrent?

  • Our products are created by hand, one at a time. Nothing is mass-produced in a factory.
  • We use only premium quality materials. The archival inks and paper produce superb color fidelity and detail while delivering exceptional print permanence. Our matboard is museum quality. Even the mounting tape is archival. Conservation-grade materials are important: your artwork will look just as good years from now as the day you receive it from us. The matboard will still be snow white, and there will be no artwork deterioration due to bleeding. Do superior components cost more? Yes. But I have never believed in cutting corners. Quality makes a difference.
  • When you place an order with The Christian Gift, it's handled personally from the moment it's received until it ships. Your art is processed in my digital darkroom and printed on a fine art printer. The matboard is cut here in our studio. Your artwork is then mounted and finished, and wrapped and packed for shipping right here. 

Realizing that you're shopping online - which means you can't pick these products up, inspect them carefully, and see the quality for yourself - you might want to check out what other customers who have done business with us have to say. You'll find their comments here.
