If you still need to take care of those stragglers on your shopping list . . . or if you haven't even started yet . . . here are some popular religious Christmas gift ideas to help take you to the finish line.

And remember, Christmas isn't just a day, it's a season that BEGINS on December 25th.  So, there is no shame in spreading out your gift-giving right up to Epiphany on January 6th (the original 12 days of Christmas). After all, that's the day when Baby Jesus received his gifts!

1. CATHOLIC BOOKS

One of the most important things for growth in the spiritual life is spiritual reading. Inspire a friend or family member with a good Catholic book on a topic they will enjoy and benefit from.
