Great Pastor Appreciation gift ideas need to be shared. I have discovered that gift givers love to share what has worked for their church. After all, giving gifts is a natural expression of love and gratitude.

And so as readers share their gift giving ideas that have worked, others will benefit.

Know What Pastor Appreciation Gift Ideas Fit Your Pastor

Our pastor is a sports fan so gifts such as sports memorabilia would be a good fit. His likes for whatever sport is in season seems to make an easy fit for all things sports.

He uses sports related illustrations in his sermons and conversations, which means he relates to other sports minded people. 

Sport related gifts open wide the options for what do we give an avid sports fan.  More than just a spectator, he loves to be involved as a participant, too.  As we hear about favorite teams and their players as well as his own sporting exploits, ideas for what to give come rather easy.
