Christmas is just around the corner which means many of you reading this are busy with planning meetings, rehearsals, stage design, decorations, and all of the other wonderful things that come with the holiday season. This leaves little time to fit in other Christmas gatherings and activities, not to mention the hunt for the perfect gifts to give your invaluable Production Team.
Well, I’m here to help!
Let’s jump into my list of affordable gifts for your Production Team.
This multi-functional stand would be an awesome gift because it can be used at church or at home. It’s the perfect way to watch movies or surf the web and if you’re church is currently using an app to control your lighting system, presentation software, or sound system it can make the process even easier. Honestly, I want one of these, and I think anyone with an iPad or iPhone would too.
This would be such a fun gift for the photographers on your team. It’s an accessory they would get a lot of use out of and it’s so unique. This could also be a great gift for anyone on your gift list that’s into photography. In fact, I might just order a set of these for myself.
The holiday hustle brings many long days and little sleep so you could always do your team a favor and give them an extra caffeine boost this Christmas. Boca Java makes some incredible coffee and one of their varieties is a blend with 50% more caffeine that traditional coffee. The 8 oz bags are $7.99 and the K-Cup 10 packs are $8.99 and it comes in three flavors; Cinna-Buzz, Java Blast, and Peanut Butter Bomb. If you’re looking for a unique coffee that doesn’t have as much caffeine as their Atomic blend, I highly recommend Maple Bacon, Bananas Foster Float, and Chocolate Hazelnut Heaven!
Cold weather equals cold hands and these gloves are the perfect solution for your tech savvy team. This would be another useful tool for those that operate sound system or presentation software from a mobile device or tablet. No longer will they have to compromise the feeling in their fingers to use their electronic devises. Honestly though, my hands are cold 90% of the time so don’t be surprised if you catch me sporting a pair mid June.
Okay, I’ve saved my favorite for last! Whether you’re surrounded by legos because you actually like them or because your kids refuse to keep them all in one place, just about anyone can appreciate this awesome mug. At $5.99 it’s the most affordable gift on this list and the most universal. The mugs themselves don’t come with any stackable pieces but you can pickup a pack of 300 legos on Amazon for $15.99 and customize each mug depending on the individual. You can also purchase wheels, lego men, and all sorts of other pieces as well to add character to your gift. Giving these to your team would be just as much fun for you to put together as it will be for them to use.
To wrap up this gift guide I want to remind you that the most impactful gift you can give your team is gratitude. Ministry can be taxing, especially around the holidays, and making a genuine effort to show tell them how much they’re appreciated will mean far more than the dollar amount of any material gift.
