Hunny! Here’s your top 10 fresh and fabulous holiday gift ideas for the queer Christians and allies in your life.


If you know me then you know that the Christmas season is my favorite holigay season. I love the lights, the trees, the love and cheer, but what I especially like are the gifts we give and receive! It’s not always easy to find the perfect present, so I decided to give you some ideas that would give the queer Christian in your life (or anybody for that matter) some holiday cheer.

I’ve made my list and checked it twice, here’s some of my favorite thing whether you’re naught or nice:

10. Monopoly The Golden Girls Board Game

When the homos get together for game night, The Golden Girls edition of Monopoly needs to be a staple. This cleverly detailed board game is best played with a slice of cheesecake, a billowing satin robe, and touch of sass.

8. Henri Bendel Holiday Candle Trio

Bad news: Established in 1895, the luxury brand is closing its doors, which also means their amazing candles will be gone too. Good news: stock up on their candles while they’re still around, and snag the holiday candle trio set as a gift.

7. Jennifer Knapp Album

Love Comes Back Around pairs Jennifer’s fearless songwriting and strong, expressive voice with rootsy arrangements: “It’s not just sex, it’s not just physical relationships,” Knapp says. “It’s hard work. It’s loss, it’s forgiveness, it’s a lot of things wrapped up in one.”

5. ‘No Fear in Love’ Tote

4. ‘Kitschmasland!’ by Modern Bear

Category is: Christmas retro realness! If you’re obsessed with mid-century holiday decor as I am, this book is a must. “This beautiful revised book covers the gamut of decorations - some whimsical, some beautiful - and a treasure trove of campy kitsch that the author calls ‘Kitschmas!’”
