Count down the days to Christmas with a sweet gift that will remind those you share with of the true meaning of Christmas with this nativity advent calendar gift idea. Day two tells the story of the wiseman and his gift of gold for the Christ child.
If I were one of the wise men setting off to find the newborn king, I think I would try to find the most precious gift that I could to give Him. I'm sure a gift of gold would have seemed like a lot to the men of that time period. It would be a lot to people now.
But I think Jesus would want gifts other than gold. I think He would rather have us shine and show the light of God in our every day actions instead of receiving gold or silver. How much harder is it to be nice when we don't want to be? How much greater a gift would that be to Him this Christmas season?
So the first of the three wise men brings a gift of chocolate gold coins as his gift idea for our advent calendar.
You can find the gold coins at Walmart in the Christmas section. They come in an ugly netted bag, so you'll want to use some of the cute party bags that you purchased for the Nativity Christmas Angel in day one and repackage them.

Attach the tag to your bag of coins and gift to your loved ones this Christmas season for a gift that will help them to remember the true meaning behind Christmas and to help them let their light shine.
