Stuck 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.
At Simple Blessings, we have a beautiful variety of Holy Family gifts for Christmas and all year round, if you have any difficulty in choosing a special holy family item, then please do not hesitate to contact us for further help and we’ll be delighted to help you in anyway we can. Until next time, may all your prayers and thoughts be filled with God’s everlasting love, light and wonder. Have a wonderful week – with much love from Simple Blessings
Do you feel particularly close to one Saint rather than another? Did you know at Simple Blessings we have a large selection of little Saint Medals that can easily slip inside your purse, wallet, pocket, handbag or work bag to remind you of the connection you have to the Saints! You can view them here: http://simpleblessings.co.uk/saint_medals/index.html
Do you travel to work? How about St. Christopher – Patron Saint of Travellers to guide you on your journey. Or, are you always losing things, sometimes forgetful – then maybe St. Anthony can help! He is the Patron Saint for lost things.
Do you love animals and the environment, then holding a St. Francis of Assisi medal will bring you comfort and remind you of the beautiful, gentle soul of Saint Francis – whose famous verse was “Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love”.
Are you expecting a baby? Or trying for your first child – St. Gerard is the Patron Saint of Mothers, Motherhood and Expecting Mothers. So, he would be a lovely Saint to carry with you and pray to whilst you’re pregnant.
Maybe you’re trying for a new job or want a more rewarding career – St. Joseph is the Patron Saint of Workers and can bring advice and wisdom into your heart. He can even sell your house for you! Just bury a statue of Saint Joseph upside down (yes, upside down!) in your garden and he will help to sell your house – customers have told us this is true!!
Until next time, may all your prayers and thoughts be filled with God’s everlasting love, light and wonder. Have a wonderful week – with much love from Simple Blessings

We love our Saints at Simple Blessings! Saint Francis of Assisi – Saint Joseph – Saint Michael – Saint Jude – Our Lady of Lourdes – Divine Mercy – Saint Anthony, we could go on and on…. but we won’t! Needless to say, if we find something with a beloved Saint on it, we tend to buy it for our customers. We adore the comfort Saints can bring to us, and we know how much strength and love they bring to you too.
Saints can heal the heart and soul. Prayers to a Saint can bring about miracles. How often do your prayers become answered when you ask Saint Joseph for help, or Saint Michael for protection? Saint Jude – the saint for hopeless causes – has been used quite often in our household! Lost something? Pray to Saint Anthony. How comforting and beautiful are the Saints? They are real people, living the gospel through life. They’re an inspiration and lifeline to us all.
So, as we have already said – the Saints mean a lot to us here at Simple Blessings. We have many, many items with Saint images and prayers on them. Here are a few of our product pages where you will find many Saint items:
