How can we even begin to thank those who have risked their lives for us? And how do we make it even more meaningful when those heroes are our family members and friends? Each day, members of the military wake up with a goal to keep all of us safe and protected. While there’s no way we can ever repay them for that, we can certainly thank them!

Veterans and those who are serving in the military deserve little reminders that we appreciate all they’ve done for us. Saying it is one thing, but it’s also important toshowthem, and summer is the perfect time to do it.

Summer Celebrations for Military Members

This summer, give a loved one in the military a token to show them how much they mean to you. With Independence Day and Labor Day right around the corner, there’s no better time. And you don’t have to stop there, either.

If a friend or family member in the military is celebrating a birthday or any accomplishment this summer, take that extra step to find that perfect gift for them. Because while they’re serving our country, they deserve recognition for all the great things they do in their daily lives as well.

Giving the Perfect Gift

What type of gift captures the love you have for our troops and our vets? Our Military Blessing gifts are a step above cards. They're uniquely designed as keepsakes for the extraordinary military people in your life.

And if they’re currently serving overseas, there’s no better reminder of your love than a simple blessing. They can read a heartwarming poem and keep it in an envelope or hang it up where they’re staying so they can always look at their gift and stay motivated.

Purple Wishing Gate has 5x7 and 8x10 blessings for all branches of the military. These gifts include:

And if they’re celebrating a birthday or another special day, send them a blessing to show them that you’re always thinking of them. The possibilities are practically endless when it comes to blessing gifts, and they’re a great way to put your feelings into words on a special day.


If you have a veteran or military member in your life and you’re searching for religious gift ideas for him or her, look no further than Purple Wishing Gate. Browse our site today or call 609-605-5880 to find that perfect blessing.

...after the horrific events of 9/11 unfolded before our eyes, it seemed as if nothing positive could ever come from that day.  Then, slowly we started to hear the stories of how a car battery dying, a missed bus, a sudden illness and even a disabling car crash prevented people from being at the twin towers during the time of the attack.  Crisis in those moments, turned out to be blessings in disguise!
