2021 Wanderer Catholic Gift Guide

The holidays are by far my favorite time of the year. I love the coziness, the decorating, the music and carols, beautifully decorated churches, and of course..skiing! 

But one thing that always causes me stress is gift-giving. Or at least the finding-the-perfect-gift-for-everyone part of the holidays. Now that I am an adult and a mother, I feel so much more pressure to find good, meaningful gifts for the people in my life. While a gift card or simple sweater can sometimes be what that person wants or needs, it may not bring as bright of a smile onto their face as something personalized or an experience can. I also enjoy finding incredibly useful items that they have been eyeing but never pulled the trigger on getting for themselves. 

I have also found that making the whole experience of Christmas unique is also important. Our family always has a trip or activity planned for Christmas to make the season even more sweet, but I’ve recently started to be more mindful of the way that gifts are given. I come from a large Polish and Irish family, and as my siblings and I have grown up it has become harder and harder to give good gifts. 

This year I am going to share the gifts we will be giving to people in our lives in hopes that it may inspire some of you! Make sure to watch out for our blog post, Our Family Holiday Traditions, which will be posted in a couple of days! 

P.S. We will be having a Shop Small Saturday Sale ;)
