The First Sunday of Advent

What better way to honor Advent than to stay out of the mall and do your Christmas shopping at home? And what better way to celebrate Christmas than to include the faith under your Christmas tree. Here are some great Christmas gift ideas from the Catholic Sistas. Keep the important things front and center this Advent. Prepare spiritually first. And when you think Christmas presents keep it simple and don't forget to include the reason for the season. Here's one of my favorite gifts for the littles in the family.

Fisher Price also has a great little nativity set. And their toys are indestructible! Our grandchildren play with the Fisher Price toys we bought for our own children 40 years ago. They have a few teeth marks, but are still going strong.

And for a mom, you can't go wrong with this madonna and child, especially if there's a new baby in the family. I used to call my babies "little lamb" and would have loved this statue to put on a prayer shelf.

And for Dad, how about some monastery mints or Mystic Monks Coffee. Maybe he'd prefer some Trappist beer.

Check out all the great gift ideas at Catholic Sistas and if you pray for all your gift recipients throughout Advent, you can be sure they will appreciate them all the more. Guardian angels, help everyone receive the gift of a grateful heart on Christmas morning!
