Holy Family Gifts and Ornaments

holy familyStuck for a gift idea this Christmas? Why not try a beautiful figurine or ornament displaying the Holy Family! It’s a lovely way to introduce the warm and inspirational love of the Holy Mother, Baby Jesus and Joseph to a friend or loved one. At this time of year it brings us closer to the birth of baby Jesus and the strength and unity of the Holy Family.

The Holy Family is a wonderful reminder to pray for our own human and spiritual families, a time to honour and love one another with kindness in our hearts. A statue of the Holy Family can be a beautiful reminder of this promise.

The devotion to the Holy Family began when Baby Jesus was born in a stable. The shepherds went to adore the child and, and at the same time, they gave honour to His family. Later, the three wise men came from the East to adore and give honor to the newborn king with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh that would be safeguarded by His family. We too, began to honour and love baby Jesus and His family – and we continue to do so today! It’s a blessing to be watched over and guided by the Holy Family and know that we are safe in their care. holy family

They make a lovely stocking filler and are a constant reminder to the recipient that their loved one cares for them very much. The Miniature Nativity Set is also very popular….. because it’s just so cute! A pocket Nativity with it’s own Christmas Tree casChristmas Tokene – and a hanger too, so it can be placed on the Christmas Tree! An absolute joy to give and receive!
