Recommended Places to Do Your Christmas Shopping

Christmas Girl

Since it will soon be the start of the mad Christmas shopping rush, I thought I would share some places where you can shop at your leisure and from your own home. I also recommend these sites for the excellent products they offer and wonderful customer service. I have also chosen them based on value pricing. They all received the Catholic Mom in Hawaii Stamp of Approval :-)

Dominican Nuns of Summit, NJ Gift Shoppe Some of the nicest soaps, air fresheners, gifts, you can get...they are made with much care by the Nuns!

Mystic Monks Wonderfully tasting and aromatic coffees.

St. Hubert's Rosary Bracelets -Shana Beautiful and practical Rosary bracelets for daily use.

Prayerful Beads - Barbara Beautiful handmade Rosaries.

Leaflet Missal A great collection of Catholic books, religious medals, DVDs, Fontanini collectibles, T-shirts, etc.

Pauline Books and Media One of my favorite places to shop because we are blessed to have a store near us. Check to see if there is a store near you or you can shop online.

EWTN Religious Catalog Beautiful artwork, books, DVDs can be found here.

Sophia Institute Press I like to associate this book shop with more intellectual Catholic books. Maybe because they care books by Drs. Alice von Hildebrand and Dietrich von Hildebrand.

Saint Damien of Molokai Artwork by Linda Johnston Linda is a local artist on Molokai. Check out her beautiful and original artwork featuring Saint Damien prints, luggage tags, note cards and recently added prayer cards.

Seelos Center Gift Shop I recently bought Cheerful Mystic by Father Michael J. Curley. It is a biography of Blessed Father Francis Xavier Seelos, C.Ss.R. Check out the statues and prayers cards there. The nicest people work there!

Donna Cooper O'Boyle. Donna has written many books that invaluable to Catholic wives and mothers. Be sure to check out her latest on her longtime friendship with Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

and last but not least Joy of Christ Press- Easter Consider ordering Easter's new book to give as a gift.

This list may get updated because I have a feeling I forgot someone.

Hi Esther, Would my Avon business count??

Easter A. said...

Esther, thanks so much! I am honored. And thanks for adding the Pauline Books and Media Center. Sales at the bookstore, of their books and copies of my book, will help with the repair of their leaky roof.

God bless you abundantly, dear Esther!
