One last rally for Christmas shopping giveaway – HUZZAH!

Do you get tired of giveaways? 

If so, you need to look away. And you might want to stop reading our blog because I LURV me some giveaways. This time of year is SO much fun from my end because the one thing I enjoy doing is promoting and advocating for businesses I really like. And when they’re Catholic, so much the “bettah!”

This is going to be our final giveaway before the madness of Christmas shipping sets in. Don’t worry…we will be resuming some more AMAZING giveaways after the new year.

Onto the details. Have you heard of Catholic Child before? They are an online company that specializes in children’s toys and gifts. I’ve been shopping with them for over five years and have thoroughly enjoyed what these amazing gifts have done for our children’s love of the Faith. I sometimes joke that there isn’t much I haven’t bought for my kids from Catholic Child. One of the things I appreciate about their store is that the catalog is broken down in several simple, easy-to-find ways. If I want to shop by age, easy peasy, quick as a drop-down menu and I’m good to go. Do I need a gift that is appropriate for a particular sacrament? No problemo. There is a quick and easy drop-down menu for that, too. If I need something that is perfect for whatever liturgical season {Advent & Christmas, Lent & Easter} they have the items categorized for ease and convenience. When I stumbled upon their website years ago, I felt like it took the guesswork out of spending hours perusing various items, and if you’re like me and a bit of a “business shopper” you appreciate the streamlined nature of their website.

So..I bet you’re excited to know what is being given away for this last giveaway of 2011!

We have TWO gifts for you to choose from. The first is…

a bundled gift of the St. Thérèse plush doll and the St. Thérèse prayer pillow case. In our house Santa brings religious gifts and last year he brought two of our kiddos the prayer pillow cases, the St. Michael the Archangel and Hail Mary pillow cases. They have been well-loved and held up wonderfully. We also have the St. Thérèse doll as well and she has been a favorite in our family for years.


The next giveaway is perfect for anyone who loves to collect nativities, playmobil toys, or plays with the nativities with their children {or, hey, even by yourself is fine, too. ;-)}

We have bought several nativities from Catholic Child, but this Nativity Play Set With Wisemen by Playmobil is one that catches my eye and I may need to order one after reading what they have to say about it:

The fun begins when your child opens the box and discovers over 50 pieces to bring the Nativity scene to life. Just imagine the gleam in your child’s eye when he or she spies these figures and their delightful accessories that make Playmobil so popular:crowned, gift-bearing wisemen and their tasseled camel, a shepherd and his fleecy flock, a cookpot warming over a fire, kittens curious and cute, Baby Jesus in a hay-filled manger to set near the cardboard stable, and Mary, Joseph and so much more. The Mary figure stands nearly 3″ tall. This well-constructed play set is the kind of toy that children eventually outgrow, but never wear out. Ages 4-10.

So, the real question is – how do you enter to win?
