Niles, IL (PRWEB) November 30, 2005
A strong spiritual revival is taking hold in America, and judging from impressive sales figures posted for the post-Thanksgiving shopping weekend, it's obvious to retailers that consumers are spending more of their holiday dollars this year on religious Christian gifts.
Penny Powell, Product Developer for the popular Internet shopping site Collectibles Today, states, "The market for Christian gifts and religious collectibles has definitely reached a turning point. There's a real spiritual hunger out there, and people are feeling an overwhelming need to share positive messages of faith and inspiration with loved ones. This year we're seeing a huge holiday demand for Christian-themed gifts, especially our collectible Nativity scene sets, sterling silver religious jewelry, and collectible porcelain religious Christmas ornaments."
Powell makes an interesting caveat to the growing trend in religious Christian gift giving. "Most holiday shoppers purchase religious Christmas gifts that lean toward a lighter inspirational tone rather than a heavy religious emphasis. People want innovatively designed religious Christmas gifts that offer comforting, inspirational messages of God's love. Such inspirational gifts, like our best-selling Thomas Kinkade lighthouse jewelry and "Footprints in the Sand" gifts are timeless. They cross all religious, demographic and social borders to offer encouragement to people who are hurting. The exception is our fine cross pendant jewelry. They're so beautiful, traditional and classic - they're always very popular as Christmas gift ideas."
