This Christmas, I wanted to give some of my family and friends a gift that not only meant something to them, but also helped those in greater need this Christmas season, attempting to answer the Matthew 25:40 call to serve the Lord through serving the “least of [His] brethren.” I asked a number of my loved ones what their favorite charitable organizations and causes were, and I made a donation to one of their favorites in their name/honor. Then I printed out this handy little snowflake card letting them know! I put their Charity Christmas Gift Cards in the mail, along with my traditional Christmas cards, but these simple snowflake printable cards would make great present-toppers on wrapped gifts, too!

Advent is fast approaching! I like to do my Christmas shopping early (I’m already done this year – score!) so that I can focus on Advent as a time of preparation for Christ’s coming and stay in a peaceful state of heart, unhindered by the shopping frenzy that can so easily distract us from the most important parts of the Advent season.
I also like to make sure I’ve got some great Catholic gifts in my present pile for my Catholic loved ones. So here are two lists that will hopefully help you with some creative, affordable, and useful Catholic gift ideas for those on your giving list…or to put on your own wish list! (Don’t forget that giving experiences, rather than strictly things, make awesome gifts for loves ones, too!)
My free Catholic Resource Guide has tons of Catholic resources – books, audio, video, etc. – categorized by topic. It’s useful for year-round learning and sharing the faith, but also helpful during the Christmas gifting season because some of the resources mentioned are top-notch for the Catholic learner on your list.
By signing up for my free Catholic Resource Guide today, you’ll automatically receive my Catholic Shopper’s Christmas Gift List: 25 Affordable and Fun Ideas for men, women, and kids, which I will be sending out this Tuesday, Nov. 17, exclusively to my email subscribers. I’ve purchased many of the items on this list myself this year!
