Catholic Children’s Gifts

  1. Mass Kit, Saint Dolls, Reusable Sticker Books, & Much More! | Shining Light Dolls

Visit Shining Light Dolls and use our link to get 10% off your purchase!

Shining Light Dolls was started just over ten years ago when our founder Chantal was shopping for gifts for her nephew’s baptism. As a “starving artist,” Chantal wanted something that was educational, affordable, beautiful and fun. She wanted her nephews to feel like Catholicism wasn’t just something that happened in that past- but was still relevant, exciting and most importantly- was for them. She wanted them to get excited about the faith the way they did about things like- toys! She realized what she wanted was Catholic play-based learning toys so she began creating these unique Catholic gifts herself.

2. Christmas Sweater Kids Socks | Sock Religious

This sock has several hidden gems that can be used as tools for evangelization this holiday season. Along the top, Christmas bulbs contain a single poinsettia. Historically, the poinsettia has been associated with Christmas and is given as a symbol of good will and community spirit. It also represents the star of Bethlehem with the red leaves echoing the blood of Christ. Throughout the sock there is also a repeating pattern of the Star of Bethlehem, a bright star that appeared in the Eastern sky and guided the Three Wisemen to the birthplace of Jesus. We hope that these socks guide you to a place of peace this Christmas.
