Reading artisan cards makes everything come to life! I get so emotional while opening these boxes, feeling the peace and love in each box since my first.

The things you post makes the Bible come to life when I read the scriptures and close my eyes to imagine it. I usually only take one or two items from the box and bless someone else with the rest. I gave a man with the ornaments and he couldn’t believe it was from Israel! It’s such a blessing that I can bless others. And Artza reminds me of the name in the Genesis verse in blessing others as you bless."

Christian giftsArtza brings The Holy City of Jerusalem into your homes for Easter Artza, the fastest growing artisanal subscription box from the Holy Land, launches its latest box featuring gifts from Jerusalem ahead of Easter With Israel’s airports officially closed and the country “hermetically sealed,” there is still a unique way to make the pilgrimage to Jerusalem in time for Easter. Artza, have announced the launch of their Jerusalem box, which will be delivered in time for the Easter holiday. The box features a collection of eight locally-sourced food and unique content that tells the story of Jerusalem, past and present. This year, when people celebrate Easter, our hope is that they have a new appreciation for the place where it all took place,” said Artza founder, Itai Schimmel from Jerusalem. “We hope people can visualize the place, learn about the place, and even taste the place, and share it all with their families and friends.” For its latest box, Artza has teamed with local artisans and charities to deliver goods that can’t be found anywhere else. For example, Artza partnered with the charity Meiso, which empowers at-risk women in Jerusalem and helps them create and sell artistic goods. For Artza, these women created hand-carved pendants made out of Jerusalem stone that can be worn as a necklace or placed on a keychain, so that Artza subscribers can very literally take a piece of the city with them everywhere they go. The Jerusalem box also includes tasty delicacies and other rich content that tells the story of the city. The Artza experience has garnered early praise from those who previously received the Bethlehem and Nazareth boxes. “I just opened my box, and it feels like Christmas,” said Lisa Hulick, an early member. “I cannot even arrange all of the items in a way that does justice. Very excited to try everything! And so sweet to read the personal stories of some people who made the products.” The name Artza was inspired by Genesis 12:3-5, when Abraham is instructed to take his family “Artza Canaan” (toward the land of Canaan). The box experience is specifically designed to follow the path of Jesus through the Holy Land. Each quarter, the company chooses another city to highlight. The idea is to deliver an assortment of gifts that people will not find anywhere else, all while supporting local small businesses and strengthening peoples’ connection to the Land of the Bible. “I love visiting Israel – it’s probably my favorite place on earth – and had a trip planned for February that unfortunately got canceled,” said Jennifer Weaver, another early member. “When I learned about Artza, I couldn’t wait to get a small taste of what I was missing out on.” Join Artza today and receive your piece of the Holy Land.
Christian giftsArtza Israel Family Newsletter 1 - Meet the Lamberts!Just as we love to share stories from different regions of Israel with each box, we want to share YOUR stories and YOUR experiences with Israel. Whether it is through reading the Bible, Artza, or travelling to the Holy Land! With each newsletter we'll bring you some Holy Land news highlights, exclusive Artza updates, and the opportunity to meet fellow Artza family members Meet the Lamberts! Julia and David joined Artza in Summer 2020! Today they have joined us to share their love for the Holy Land! The Lambert family lives near Augusta, GA where Julia works for the local school system, and David is a pastor at First Baptist Church Thomson. Their 11yr old daughter Abby shared that she wants to go to Israel with her parents the next time! We look forward to welcoming you all! What does Israel mean to you? "Israel is about connecting. Connecting with God, people, the culture, and the land. It is incredible to be able to connect where you are, with the stories you’ve read in the Bible your whole life." What has been your favorite Artza item so far? "Food items are definitely a big hit! We love the coffee and the olive oil. The tree from the last box is phenomenal. It is sitting in my kitchen window and I look at it every day. On this last trip to Israel we’d be in different shops and we’d be like “that’s in an Artza box!!” It was neat to make that connection back to Artza while on our trip to Israel" How did you see Scripture come to life while you were in Israel? "In the Garden of Gethsemane, I was thinking about how that garden was a place a refuge for Jesus. Then night he was betrayed and it became a place of turmoil. Like when we have a place that we love that was a refuge then becomes a place of turmoil. I thought about how that was another element of Jesus’ suffering that I hadn’t considered before"
Christian gifts8 Easter Gift Ideas for the Whole FamilyAs Easter draws near, it may be a good idea to start considering which gifts to get for your loved ones. With so many options available, the choice is by no means easy. We at Artza understand the joy of receiving a gift on such an important holiday, and as such, we have compiled a few Easter present ideas for you to find inspiration. Easter Gifts for Parents 1. A Gift Basket of Chocolates The symbol of a basket is representative of nests, spring, and fertility. These are popular Easter themes, and as such, a gift basket would serve as a great present to carry them. A gift basket filled with various chocolate treats would make a lovely gift for a special woman in your life. 2. An Easter Gardening Basket Easter baskets, in general, are great gift ideas for adults, but what makes them even better is the fact that they can be customized. If you have a friend or family member with green thumbs, an Easter gardening basket is the gift for them. You can include tools, a watering can, and even a straw hat, all with Easter-themed prints on them. They will be able to use this gift to keep their garden thriving in the true spirit of spring and fertility. 3. An Egg Cooker This is not a traditional gift you would expect to receive on Easter; however, we think it is a creative way to incorporate the themes of Easter into a functional gift. This would make the perfect present for someone who loves cooking or appreciates functionality in gifts. Easter Gifts for Children 1. Bunny Slippers Bunnies have become possibly the most prominent symbol for Easter, and it is easy to see why. The fluffy Easter friend is hard not to like, and any gift with a bunny motif will likely be a hit around this holiday (especially for children). Bunny slippers are not only comfortable and soft but also endearing—so much so that you may even be tempted to get a pair for yourself. 2. Chocolate Eggs The hollow chocolate Easter egg represents the empty tomb after Jesus was resurrected. These delicious treats are now found at every Easter celebration and are a hit with the little ones. To make this gift even more unique, plan an Easter egg hunt for your children and hide all of the eggs for them to find. You can elevate the experience by leaving a trail of "bunny footprints" made from flour or baby powder to have them think the Easter Bunny brought the eggs. 3. A Plush Toy Two of the main symbols of Easter are the bunny and the chic. These are two soft, sweet-natured animals that would make adorable plush toys for little ones. The best part about this gift is that it will likely be cherished long after Easter is over. The Best Easter Gift Boxes 1. An Artza Subscription While Easter is one of the more whimsical Christian holidays, it is crucial to keep the meaning alive. A subscription to Artzabox can be precisely the right gift with which to do this. The unique artisanal items from various locations across the Holy Land really keep the spirit of Christ alive, especially during these holiday periods. Purchase your own from our online store. 2. A DIY Easter Activity Box Homemade Easter gifts are a hit over the holidays, especially for family members. You can create a fun Easter activity box for your loved ones by using reasonably inexpensive materials. Some ideas include: An activity to paint your own easter eggsA hand-drawn Easter coloring book (if you are artistically inclined)A sugar cookie decorating kit that can include the ingredients to make the icing, food coloring, and various other decorations like jelly beans, sprinkles, and edible glitter There is nothing quite like sharing Easter with your family, and exchanging gifts brings that much more joy to the occasion. We understand that finding the perfect gift is often an incredibly daunting task, so we hope you have managed to draw some inspiration based on our suggestions.

Christian giftsChristmas Gift Ideas for Religious ParentsChristmas is a time for love and giving, and who better to give a gift to than your parents? The term "parents" is broad and covers a range of different people and relationships. In this post, we will suggest Christmas gift ideas for your parents, grandparents, in-laws, and even friends who have recently become parents. What to Get New Parents for Christmas Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus, and so it is also important to help your friends celebrate the birth of their children. As a parent, you may want to get something for your children who have recently become parents as well. Here are some ideas for the best sentimental gifts for new parents: Baby's First Bible Your baby may not be able to read the Bible until they are older, but it is still a special gift to give that doubles as a source of numerous bedtime stories. Baby clothes with Bible verses There are many passages that would work beautifully on a baby onesie, such as Samuel 1:27: “For this child I prayed and the Lord has granted the desires of my heart.” New parents also need things for themselves and may appreciate some non-baby gifts. Some gifts for new moms and dads can include fluffy slippers or a nice bottle of wine to help them wind down after the stressful child-bearing period. What to Get Your Religious Parents for Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Parents as a Child There are many handmade and inexpensive gift ideas that children can utilize. Not only is this an economical option, but your parents are sure to cherish something that you have put thought and effort into.

Something unique to your relationship Our elderly parents and grandparents usually hold on to memories more than anything else. Get them a picture frame with a family photo or a trinket from a holiday spent together. This way they will be able to reminisce fondly whenever they see your gift. Gift Ideas for In-laws Getting a gift for an in-law, especially one who has everything you can imagine, is a difficult task. Remember that your gift to your in-laws can be inexpensive. What is important to bear in mind is that they will appreciate the fact that you got them a gift more than the physical gift itself. Something practical Practicality in gifts is something that is sometimes overlooked, but your in-laws may love practical faith-based gifts. A bookmark with a bible verse on it or a personalized journal are great bible study gifts for in-laws.

Christian giftsHow to Find the Perfect Christian Christmas GiftsGiving a Christmas gift to friends and family is a tradition started as a reminder of the three gifts that the three wise men gave to Jesus when he was born, frankincense, gold, and myrrh. Thoughtful Christmas gifts are personalized religious gifts, for example, a Bible cover with a Bible verse printed on it. Let us look at a few unique religious gifts any person will appreciate. A Bible A Bible is the perfect reminder of the “reason for the season”. A Bible is a unique gift for new believers. When giving a Bible as a gift, there are a few things to consider. The age of the receiver. When giving a Bible as a gift, you need to make sure it is on the level of the reader, as you don’t want to discourage the receiver from reading it. The receiver's interest. You get different types of Bibles for different types of interests, for example, a Bible for teachers or a Bible for athletes. A deeper growing in the word of God. A Bible to help the receiver grow a deeper understanding of the Bible, for example, a study or devotional Bible. What Type of Bible Can Be Given as a Gift? A life application Bible: This Bible is filled with notes and features that help you understand the Bible and how to apply it to your life.A prayer-focused Bible: It contains daily scriptures and short prayers. It encourages Christians to stay in the word of God and on their knees.The creative Bible: Whether it is taking notes, creating art, coloring, or journaling, these types of activities offer ways for people to engage with the Bible.

A few Bible verses that could be used for Christmas cards can be found in: John 3:16Romans 12:10Proverbs 17:22John 1:142 Corinthians 9:15Luke 1:37James 1:17Romans 6:231 John 5:11John 1:5-11 Christmas Subscription Boxes for Religious People A Christmas subscription box is also a nice gift.

It could be an online retailer that sells Christian items and have it delivered to the receiver or from a walk-in shop. However, over the festive season, a lot of people prefer to do online shopping as the walk-in shops are too busy, but you will not always be sure that if what you buy is what you will receive, so just make sure it is a trustworthy site. On the other hand with walk-in shops, you can see and buy the correct item even if you have to stand in a queue.

According to the Bible, Jesus was born as the Messiah. It is said that He came to fulfill the prophecies of the Old Testament and to die on the cross to save all people.

We also read that he returned annually to Jerusalem with family and friends to celebrate the Passover feast. He later cleaned the temple when it was used as a market. Jesus was said to have preached to the people living in Jerusalem, as well as healing its people. It was apparently also the place where he was arrested, trailed, crucified, buried, and where He later rose from the dead.

The size of the bag is small, approximately 16x14 cm (6,25x5,5 inches) The Sea of Galilee The Sea of Galilee is not a sea but rather a big lake. The location and the excellent fishing drew many people to settle there. In Matthew 4:23, we read that Jesus went through Galilee teaching, preaching, performing miracles, and healing the people. What Jesus Did at the Sea of Galilee Five loaves of Bread and Two Fish It is said that Jesus lived in the ancient village of Capernaum on the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee. It is also widely accepted that Tabgha, on the northern coast of the Sea of Galilee, is the site where Jesus fed 5000 people with five loaves of bread and two fish (Matthew 14:13-21). Sermon on the Mount and the Site of Transfiguration At the Mount of Beatitudes, it is believed that Jesus had given the Sermon on the Mount, while Mount Tabor has been identified as the site of the transfiguration. According to Gospels Matthew, Mark, and Luke (Matthew 17:1-3; Mark 9:2-13; Luke 9:28-36), Jesus took the disciples Peter, James, and John to see an apparition of Moses and Elijah. The Exorcism of Two Kursi, located east of the Sea of Galilee, at the mount of a riverbed, is traditionally the place where it is believed Jesus exorcised demons from two possessed men (Matthew 8:28-33). Baptism of John the Baptist Yardenit, where the Jordan River flows from the Sea of Galilee southwards to the Dead Sea, is believed to be the site where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. Water into Wine In Cana, artifacts were found that make scholars believe that this is where Jesus changed the water to wine. Bethsaida is known for being the place where Jesus performed a few miracles: Jesus feeds the five thousand people with five bread and two fish (Matthew 14:13-21; Mark 6:30-44; Luke 9:12-17).Jesus walks on water (Matthew 14:22-36; Mark 6:45-51).Jesus heals a man from blindness (Mark 8:22-26).
