Support Catholic Companies this Christmas

The Catholic Man Show 2020 Christmas Gift Ideas

Looking for Catholic Christmas Gifts? Wanting to support Catholic small businesses?

This year has seen its challenges. Not only has it been difficult for our family and friends but it has also been difficult for small business owners. That’s why we have reached out to over 20 Catholic small business owners and asked them if we could highlight their business in this year’s Catholic Man Show Christmas gift ideas in an effort to bring potential customers to their business. Full disclosure, we did not receive any money and we did not ask for any merchandise from these businesses. Our goal was to make people aware of the opportunities to support a Catholic business while purchasing a gift for a loved one. We hope you find some benefit in this list.

The Catholic Woodworker

The Catholic Woodworker exists to equip men for battle in the modern world.  They do this by creating beautiful and masculine spiritual weapons, like their handmade wooden rosaries, that inspire a continuous conversion in the hearts of men. This year they have launched an official rosary of The Catholic Man Show (pictured). This handmade wooden rosary with the Immaculata design will be the perfect weapon for any man. Use promo code “TCMS” to receive 10% off all purchases from The Catholic Woodworker. Don’t forget to check out their home altars and crucifixes as well.

(Note: The Catholic Woodworker has been a sponsor of TCMS in the past but did not pay for this post in any way)


SaintCards

Looking for a fun game to play with the family? Wanting your kids to learn more about the faith while having fun on family game night? SaintCards is a tremendous gift to Catholic Families everywhere.

It can be tough to raise our children in the faith, and even harder if it always feels like work.  This game makes learning about the saints and our faith fun. The cards themselves pack in a HUGE amount of info about each featured Saint, amounting to an entire biography in symbols and colors.  I love that there is so much to be learned while playing any version of the game…The possibilities are really limitless and could be adapted to be used with preschoolers all the way through adults.  It’s so nice to come across a faithful, well made, flexible game. Whether you are 5 years old or 105 years old, you will learn more about the history of the Catholic faith in a fun and engaging way with Saintcards.

In His Image Apparel

In His Image is a lifestyle brand reflecting the internal Christ impact externally through fashion and philanthropy. As we are changed and developed by the Holy Spirit, the brand of In His Image grows and expands. Several years ago, Matt Williams was at a Christian owned barbershop engaging in the conversations that arise in barbershops. Being that a lot of the patrons were also Christians, faith-based topics often came up. This particular time a discussion about the power of words and the tongue happened and Matt noticed one particular person was wearing a shirt by Affliction and what the words that person was wearing say. In the following weeks, Matt noticed more and more Christians wearing brands that spoke death over the wearer. Looking closely at these brands Matt noticed they were high-quality products and design. This inspired Matt to provide life-affirming quality apparel.

As Matt explored starting In His Image he noticed there was not a complete Christian apparel brand. There are several t-shirt brands but they rarely offer pants, jeans, jackets, coats and etc. In His Image is designed to be a lifestyle brand that grows from offering t-shirts to a full apparel offering.

Matt views In His Image as an avenue to give generously and partner with other Christians by them purchasing In His Image products.

Zelie Beans Coffee

Zelie Beans Coffee takes its name from Zelie Martin. She and her husband, Louis, lived in a small village in France. Both Louis and Zelie worked, he as a watchmaker/repairman and she as a lacemaker. They had 9 children, 4 of which would die in infancy or childhood. The 5 that lived into adulthood were all girls and they all entered into religious life. Zelie’s lace-making business did very well for her family that she was able to provide for the whole family. Though this did not mean her life was easy. She struggled with the deaths of her 4 children that died young. She also had trouble nursing her children. However, she persevered with faith and prayer. Zelie Beans Coffee is not just another coffee roaster. They strive to ensure that the growers and farm employees receive livable wages. With this in mind, Zelie Beans Coffee only sources beans from suppliers that provide fair and above fair prices for the unroasted beans. We also seek out those sources that continue to invest in women, their families, and their communities. Use promo code TCMS10 for 10% off at checkout!

Viaggi Candles

When we went to China to adopt our daughter, we fell in love with her and with the fragrance of tea. Today, the smell of Chinese tea still transports us to that time and place – making the wonder of that journey as real today as it was then,

Viaggi Fragrances was born out of that experience.

Our mission is to capture the essence of the breath-taking wonders of the worlds through the signature scents of each location.

All the ingredients of each candle are true to the area that inspired it. Our hope is that our candles will bring the magic of the wonders of the world right into your home, and maybe even inspire you to set off on an adventure of your own.

Baritus Catholic

Baritus Catholic has become our new favorite Catholic illustrator.

The two meanings of this Latin word come together graphically in the BARITUS logo through the representation of the angel blowing a trumpet while carrying a sword. This image reflects scenes from Scripture such as in the Old Testament where the Israelites rally around the sound of the trumpet where God fights for them, as well as in the New Testament where angels usher in the final judgment with the blast from a trumpet.

In the BARITUS icon, the trumpet and the sword are bound together with rope symbolizing the ever-present need to both proclaim the faith and defend the faith in evangelization.

Chris Lewis is the sole illustrator behind BARITUS Catholic Illustration. A convert to the Catholic faith with a professional background in graphic design and a love for illustration, this project came to fruition through a parallel journey in discovering the Truth of Christianity through Catholicism and a return to drawing after many years of setting it aside. The two paths converged after a series of spiritual and intellectual conversions in 2018, and the idea of beginning a project focused on sharing the Catholic faith through art was born. BARITUS is an artistic project dedicated to preserving the legacy of our rich Catholic artistic traditions, but in a way that resonates today.

Commission a Saint Portrait from Outpouring of Trust

Painted on unstretched canvas with a solid color background, choose any Saint you love for me to paint! Comes with a hardwood frame – the standard is the walnut finish, but I can get a variety of others – just ask!

A print is a shadow and imitation of the original. Nothing can compare or capture the look of real brushstrokes. Your eye perceives the light bouncing off in an entirely unique way when the paint is in front of you.

It’s why thousands flock to museums even when you can see photos of paintings online or even purchase copies.

When you love it, it has to be the original. Nothing else can compare.


Light and Leaven by Bishop Joseph Strickland from Catholic Answers

Bishop Joseph Strickland is one of the Church’s boldest and most courageous leaders. His outspoken support of orthodox faith and morals, the sanctity of unborn life, and reforming Catholic institutions have made him a hero even to Catholics outside his little East Texas diocese.

In Light and Leaven he offers a forthright perspective on the state of the Church and the world today and calls on the lay faithful to meet its challenges unflinchingly. We must not shrink from the culture, he says, but be a light to it; we must not retreat from the world but leaven it with grace and truth.


Vintage Sacred Heart Medallion from House of Joppa

This Sacred Heart wall medallion is an iconic symbol representing the transformative power of divine love for all of humanity.  The heart opens to reveal a space to place a written prayer or notes of gratitude. It also has a hook on the back to hang on the wall or on an altar.  It can also be used as a Christmas ornament, baptismal or confirmation gift.

If you’re familiar with the story in the book of Acts when St. Peter visits the town of Joppa, he is led to the upper room where many widows are weeping at the death of Tabitha. St. Peter prays and says “Tabitha, arise!” and she opened her eyes. This verse has been significant to me my whole life, not just because my name is Tabitha, but because it made the word of God personal to me. My name is in there. And He knows it.

After more study I learned that “Joppa” means “beautiful”. When deciding on a name for our shop, it became clear that “House of Joppa” would reflect all that we’d hope to accomplish in our mission. We exist to offer modern Catholic Home Decor, jewelry and gifts to help others “live out the beauty” of the beloved Catholic faith.

Since these countries produce our handcrafted cigars we thought it would be fitting to give back to the least fortunate in those communities. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Regina Cigars™ will go to “Farm of the Child” which is a faith-based orphanage in Honduras. We have already been able to donate almost $11,000.00 in proceeds to help them & other faith-based initiatives.

Donate to Clear Creek Abbey 

Does your loved one already have everything they want? Donate to Clear Creek Abbey in their name. Clear Creek Abbey strives to live by the labor of their own hands, but could not hope to build an abbey to last a thousand years with your help. After nearly seventeen years of existence at Clear Creek, we are happy, by the grace of God, to have completed two large buildings, i.e. a residence hall and a gatehouse, plus a sizable portion of our abbatial church. What a joy it is to be able to sing in this truly monastic church, even if the walls have only risen, so far, to half their destined height! We are currently beginning the construction of the chevet, or eastern portion of the church containing the sanctuary. We will also be raising the transepts (arms of the cross) to their full height. Please help us continue this arduous, but important work for the glory of God.
