I love doing these gift guides each year. This year is a little more difficult because of our shattering loss this year. It’s hard to believe this much time has passed since Capri passed away. Hoping for a meaningful distraction, I put this list together.
There will be some things from Amazon, but I really wanted to highlight several small businesses. None of these shops asked me to do this, but I want to get the word out about some truly amazing small businesses.
These gift ideas are mostly Catholic, but not all of them. These are gift ideas for teens, children, your husband, and other family members. But these can also be ideas to give to someone that is trying to buy a gift for you.
I will very likely add to this over the next few weeks, but I wanted to get you started with some ideas!
