Ideas for a Pastor's Wife's Birthday

Save

If your pastor's wife's birthday is coming up, give a gift that will be appropriate and appreciated. You can give an individual gift or a group gift--from the congregation, from a women's group in the church, or from the children in Sunday school.

Birthday Party

  • One of the best ways to show your pastor's wife how much you appreciate her friendship and her work in the church is to plan a surprise birthday celebration for her. Ask church members to perform specific tasks such as preparing the birthday meal, baking and decorating a cake and decorating the space. Plan some type of special entertainment such as the children's choir singing "Happy Birthday." Have everyone in the congregation sign an extra-large birthday card. You can purchase these cards in many retail stores.

Handmade Gifts

  • A handmade gift can be the perfect choice for your pastor's wife. Try making personalized ornaments for her Christmas tree, a patchwork quilt with birthday wishes on each panel, or a set of decorative throw pillows with religious imagery. A particularly moving gift is a video of church members talking about how special she is, perhaps recounting stories about times when she helped them in some way, ending each story with wishes for a happy birthday. Free software such as MovieMaker will help you to edit your video.

Gift of Charity

  • If your pastor's wife spends a great deal of her time helping those in need, one of the most meaningful gifts you can give her is a donation to one of her favorite charities. You can donate either in her name or anonymously, depending on her personal philosophy on charitable donations. Present her with a certificate that shows the donation in her name. Or set up a scholarship for young people in your congregation who want to go to college but can't afford it without help.
