I know, I know, it's not even Lent yet (one more day of feasting!) and I'm already talking about Easter! But you know how some people like to get their Christmas shopping finished before Advent? Why not get your Easter shopping done before Lent? That should totally be a thing, right?!? So I've rounded up some of my favorite Catholic items to create the ULTIMATE Easter Basket for one lucky winner. Please make sure you visit these beautiful shops, all of the owners were so wonderful to work with and so generous to provide me with an item for this giveaway! I couldn't recommend them any more whole-heartedly!
Ok, here's what you can win...TEN items in all!
G.K. Chesterton shirt from MONKROCK. It reads "In Catholicism, the pint, the pipe, and the cross can all fit together". We gave one of these to Phil's Dad a few years ago, and he loves it! (You get to pick the size)
A Holy Family necklace from Jaspern Jade. This necklace is such a wonderful reminder of what our families should strive to imitate even though there are so many difficult crosses thrown our way. What better example of family life than Mary, Joseph, and Jesus? Right?!
A beautiful print from Hatch Prints with a quote from St. Catherine of Sienna "Be who God made you to be and you will set the world on fire." I thought this would be perfect for a child's bedroom (or any room, really!) as a reminder that they will only be happy if they follow God's Will. We have this one hanging in Maggie's room :)
A felt saint softie of the Immaculate Heart of Mary from Saintly Silver. These softies are so adorable, we have St. Margaret Mary, St. Alexander, and St. Declan! Erin has so many options available in her store, even those harder to find saints.
A set of Rosary Roses from Annery's Handmade. These pretty roses are perfect for a busy toddler (or older adult whose fingers can't quite grasp small beads anymore) to hold during the family rosary. They come in a cute pouch with the mysteries of the rosary cards to help older kids along. These are definitely going to help make our family rosaries a little more peaceful!
A onesie that reads "Cradle Catholic" from Marilyn's Diaper Castle. I saw this onesie and knew I wanted, no, needed it for Martin Baby #7. How adorably witty! (You can choose the size)
A Benedictine bracelet for kids from Special Creation 4 U. We bought these for my older boys to wear (and had them blessed) to help keep them protected through St. Benedict's intercession. These bracelets are hand woven in Medjugorje and fit children ages 3-13.
A lego rosary from Memento Moose. How cool is this? These legos can snap together, and as each prayer is said, you can snap off that lego brick and slide it along the cord to keep your place. The perfect busy boy rosary. Alexander loves his, but allllll the boys want one now!
Your choice of a mug:
from Printable Prayers with the following morning offering prayer printed on it:
O God, I offer you this day,
all I do, and think, and say,
in union with what once was done,
on earth by Jesus Christ, your son.
What a great way to start each day!
And finally! From Custom Crayons by Sara, a set of 8 cross crayons (each in their own Easter egg) with an Easter poem explaining the significance of each color. Great for the toddler set, and such a nice alternative to all the candy kids usually get inside their Easter eggs :)
