2021 Christmas Gift Ideas & Stocking Stuffers {Plus Another Sleighful of Giveaways}

by | Nov 20, 2021 | Gift Guide | 196 comments

It’s time for this year’s list of “Christmas Gift Ideas” and another “Sleighful of Giveaways!”

I came very close to not putting this together this year… It takes a lot of time to coordinate all the prizes, and then gather all the links for each section of gift ideas but it’s fun too!  I decided to just go for it… but then regretted it almost immediately since it just takes way too much time! I really do love being able to bless over 20 families with gifts donated by all the generous sponsors though and also help with shopping ideas at the same time.  I hope it’s helpful for you all!
You can find the lists from the last six years hereherehereherehere, and here as well as even more Catholic gift ideas listed in my past Easter posts as well: 100+ Easter Basket Stuffers & Catholic Gift Ideas and Easter Symbols: Catholic Gift Ideas.  Some of the items below have been featured in the past but they are still favorites. I’ve tried to only include links to things that are currently available, or were available at the time of this post, but I think a few items might be out of stock…
Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to enter the giveaway for a chance to win one of 22 PRIZES with a combined value of over $2,400! Please keep these Catholic businesses and authors in mind when shopping for gifts this Christmas season!

Once again our children helped again with this year’s “Christmas Gift Ideas” post. I had them each list nine gift ideas for me to share with you all. Most are things they own with some wishes thrown in too.
Here are their answers:

Please note: In addition to their stockings, our children usually unwrap three gifts from my husband and I on Christmas morning – something they need, something they want, and one other gift which is usually faith based. We draw names on the first Sunday of Advent for Christkindl and end with a family Christkindl gift exchange. It’s always the first thing they want to do after our morning prayers (or morning Mass if we didn’t make it to the Midnight Mass) on Christmas Day! They also receive a stack of books either on Epiphany. The gifts listed below have been received over a number of different years/occasions or even handed down from older siblings.

  6. Fun beanie or hat (trucker style hat) I’m turning into Dad with the whole hat thing… haha (Also the Coyotes hockey team absolutely stinks this year so all their apparel is getting cheap.)

  7. Be Kind Anyway T-Shirt from The Little Rose Shop – St. Teresa of Calcutta’s “Anyway” poem is my absolute favorite poem because it shows how this earth is just temporary and that you should not become down because of something someone said or did. “Be Kind Anyway” is a part of that poem and it is so simple yet it means so much. If you haven’t read that poem before, you should! It’s such a beautiful one!

We have (and LOVE the Princess Castle too- it was the first one I purchased of the two) but unfortunately it’s not currently available.

.: Gift Ideas for Men :.
Here is what Sean sent me when I asked him for nine suggestions:
  1. Coat of Arms/Family Crest Coasters – Made in the USA, every member family must show pride in their family name and honor their heritage. The family crest reminds us of our forefathers, the honor they brought to the family, and the hopes of meeting them again in the afterlife. Coffee drinkers, guests, etc. will appreciate seeing these in your home:
  2. Celtic Cross Warriors Shield – Get your Irishman something to bring out his fighting spirit and to remind him of his role as family protector. This celtic cross shield is perfect for his office, above the fireplace or to adorn the mancave.
  3. The Imitation of Christ – Want to see your father or husband spiritually improve each day? Get him to read one chapter a day out of The Imitation of Christ. Lauded by St. Therese of Lisieux as the only other book she needed besides the Sacred Scriptures, the short 1-2 page chapters in this masterpiece will surely bring a conversion of heart and a spiritual renewal so much needed in today’s world. The illustrations alone within the book are worthy of their own meditations.
  4. Saint Benedict: The Story of the Father of the Western Monks – This story and the others in the series (Published by TAN Books; December 31,1942) are excellent books for dads to read to the children at dinner time – while they eat and before dad takes his first bite. It is a time honored tradition in monastic communities for a member to read aloud at dinner time. It also serves as an opportunity for the head of the household to perform a good service for his family and demonstrate the importance of the material he is reading by waiting for his dinner:
  5. Adjustable Weight Bench
  6. Bowflex SelectTech 552 Dumbbells
  7. My Catholic Faith Classic 1954 Edition – My Catholic Faith is a tastefully illustrated and perfectly concise traditional catechism for all ages. It summarizes all the main points of our faith using only two pages for each instruction. This comprehensive catechism will be a family heirloom in the home
  8. Shooter’s Bible – Every man in the home needs familiarity with firearms. Yes, he needs to first have his own copy of The Bible, but next he needs… the Shooter’s Bible. “Shooter’s Bible, for generations the most trusted source of detailed information on firearms, offers gun enthusiasts expert knowledge and advice on gun care.”
  9. Gift Card – Finally, every guy needs an opportunity to pick out his favorite thing at Cabela’s.

  1. Christine

    Thank you so much for putting this together! I always reference your gift guides for ideas. The Advent crate looks so wonderful for preparing my family, and especially my kids, for Christmas! I was also so happy to see the Morning Star book on your list. I recently got a copy and I'm excited to read it to my boys!

  2. Maria A

    So fun to see quite a few local businesses and Catholic artisan small shops I know in the gift guide! Also slightly proud to have started that Secret Hitler game trend since I was the first one to get the game after playing it at UMary in November of 2019 and then introduced to all the young adults/theatre group here 😅

  3. Maria Andress

    Sets 11 and 19 are my top picks, but also 5 and 16!

  4. Heather

    I love all of these so much! Thank you for a great giveaway! Favorites – 3, 5, 7, 11, and 13!

  5. Anonymous

    Love 5 and 11. Thanks for the great giveaway!!!

  6. Cindy

    I am kind of overwhealmed as I look at all these prizes. Some of them I think of who I could gift it to (friend who has a 2 month old and I didn't realize Chews Life had other things besides the rosaries) and quite a few things that I would love to have as a catechist (2nd-grade First Penance and First Holy Communion) to share with the kids in my classes, though top of that list would be Saints Around the World pack because Meg's saint stories are the best and I have a huge goal all year of trying to connect the kids in my classes with loving saints and also the St Francis crate. My husband says I am hard to buy for, and he is right. But I have to go and look at the Gianna bracelet from Chews Life or see if one of the rosaries/novenas or if I could find a bracelet with saints medallion or rosary bracelet that I could put on my Christmas list.

  7. anastasia

    Very helpful for my Christmas shopping!

  8. Rebecca

  24. ADTWF

    Love these ideas! I bookmarked the Guadalupe swaddle blanket, as I've several friends who are pregnant. I would have loved one when my boys were infants! If I had to pick one of the prize packs, I'd choose #1 (for my husband, a Medieval literature professor), #2 (catechism class), or #18 (for my sons, both of whom love good Catholic lit.).

  25. Lauren

  33. Unknown

    How to choose my favorites?

But really, I either know someone I could gift things to or would enjoy them myself…there isn't a bad giveaway in the bunch!

  34. Kathryn

    Thank you! My favorites are 7, 8, 14, and 20.

  35. Karen H

    Captain's comments, "I'm turning into Dad with the whole hat thing" and his comment on the Coyotes hockey team had me in stitches! And Chiquita's opinion of Emily Bronte! Just LAUGH OUT LOUD! Bless you, Jessica, your "kids" just made my day! Thanks for the early Christmas joy of the awesome sense of humor from your fabulous offspring. All of them come through their comments as thoughtful, refined, delightfully good humoured and high minded individuals. You and your husband should take a bow.

  36. LauraB

    "stuff for guns – like ammo or holster" What an incredibly wholesome Christmas gift! Merry Christmas son, now go kill something. Sickening. WWJD?

    Our older boys are adults now and they don't look at firearms as toys.  As my husband mentions further down in the post, proper knowledge and understanding of firearm maintenance is an important part of using them whether that is for sport or home protection  Also, just because my son listed something in his list of suggestions, doesn't mean it's something we will be purchasing for him. Our children generally receive three gifts, stocking stuffers and some books, usually with at least one religious gift in the mix.

    I wasn't actually going to enter the giveaway when I originally commented but…one of my sons and his wife recently had a baby boy, so maybe I should! The delightful #7 Chews Life would make any baby happy, and the teen books #18 would be very good for my now teenage grands. And if the luck of the Irish was with me and I won #13, the St Therese rosary, I would give it to you, Jessica, with thanks for this amazing blog and for your inspirational devotion to St Therese.

    I’d most like to win the Rycraft cookie stamps as I’m just trying stamps and molds for the first time this Christmas. I’ve so loved your Christmas lists, Jessica. They’ve helped me decide on gifts for my own children for the past nine years. Thank you and blessings this advent and Christmas season.

    Oh that's great! My mom is one of 13 children and her oldest brother happens to live up in the mountains here in North Idaho about 45 minutes from our home. Our children have loved getting to know him since moving up here from Oregon and our college boys are really hoping to eventually be here for a hunting season so he can teach them!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
