2017 Catholic Holiday Gift Guide | Catholic Women-Owned Businesses

catholic holiday gift guide catholic women-owned businesses

Just as our turkey-fatigue is lifting and the taste of pumpkin pie is leaving our mouths, it’s time to start thinking about the Advent and Christmas seasons. If you’re anything like me, your Christmas gift shopping list will sit next to your Advent Journal for the next few weeks as you attempt to grow closer to Jesus and also not forget that you have Uncle Ned’s name for this year’s Christmas gift exchange. When shopping for my family and friends, I like to support ethical small businesses, especially if they’re owned and operated by Catholics. In case you like to do the same, we at Blessed is She put together this Catholic holiday gift guide highlighting Catholic women-owned businesses (including several Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday coupon codes just for Blessed is She readers!). You can feel great about supporting these women as they use their God-given gifts and fostered skills to create true, good, and beautiful products.
