If you’re anything like me, you still have a few names left on your “gifts to buy” list. Here are a few quick and easy gifts to throw into your cart and have under the tree by Christmas morning. (And remember: Christmas begins December 25th. Technically, you’ve got until January 6th to get people gifts. So fear not procrastinating-gift-buyers, there’s plenty of time!)
1. Sock Religious Socks
What’s better to put in a stocking than some super Catholic, well-designed, conversation-starting stockings? These saint & faith inspired socks are sure to inspire some wonderful chats on Christmas Day.
2. Shining Light Dolls
These adorable little Saint dolls are perfect for the kids in your life. They make great additions to pretty much any doll house or playset, they’re easy to rinse off and clean when they’ve become covered in toddler grime, and they come complete with a prayer card and biography.
3. The Catholic Journaling Bible
As people begin to make resolutions for the New Year, encourage them to add “read more” to their list by giving them this beautiful Bible designed to help readers journal their way through Scripture.
With lovely hand-lettering from BeAHeart Design and created by the women over at Blessed is She, this is sure to please anyone who wants to pray through the Word of God. Get it on Amazon with 2 day shipping.
4. Word Made Flesh by Christopher West
Speaking of reading more, this new Scripture meditation book by Christopher West walks you through the Sunday readings of 2019 through the lens of Theology of the Body.
A fresh take on the beautiful teachings of St. John Paul II, while rooting the reflections in the Sunday readings for Cycle C in the now famous Wednesday audiences of JP2, this is an excellent gift for those hungry to prepare more fully for the Sunday liturgy in a new way.
Get it from Ave Maria Press here.
5. Coffee from Guadalupe Roastery
No stocking is complete without coffee, and what better coffee to give than the delicious offerings from Guadalupe Roastery.
With various blends from Papa New Guinea, Nicaragua, Ethiopia, and my personal favorite, the Colombian, this coffee is not only delicious and well made, but supports local farmers, ministries across the U.S., and can be given as a monthly subscription in the Coffee Club or a one-time buy through their store.
Happy (last minute) shopping!
