2019 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 Aunt Tina’s name for this year’s Christmas gift exchange. 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!) to help you with your intentional and meaningful shopping.

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.

The Modern Saints

These prints by Gracie are inspired by her idea of modernizing Catholic Saints. Her goal is to re-imagine these extraordinary people as modern, everyday humans… because that is exactly what they were. Gracie accurately presents the Saints’ ethnicities to show the Church’s widespread diversity. She gives each a character or personality and a real human expression, and gives each a style with a modern twist. To further this notion of extraordinary coming from ordinary, she paints each on a discarded or thrifted piece of wood. Much like the Saints, each plaque once forgotten is transformed.

Brass & Mint Co.

Brass & Mint Co is run by fine artist and illustrator (and sometimes blogger) Carolyn Svellinger, who with her husband have 6 children.

When Beauty Met Truth

The name of this shop comes from St. John Paul the Great’s “Letter to Artists”. In it he writes, “The ‘beautiful’ was thus wedded to the ‘true’, so that through art too souls might be lifted up from the world of the senses to the eternal.” Lauren was really struck by this idea that art is the meeting of Beauty and Truth. But more than that, it’s ultimate goal is to point to God, the giver of all artistic talent. She takes great care in the creation of everything she makes. She loves the process and the creativity that goes into each piece. Everything in hey shop is hand drawn, hand lettered, or hand painted by Lauren!
