Here are Catholic Gift Ideas for Children Ages 3 to 8!

Catholic Dolls

A Mary Doll from Be a Heart

Mary continues to appear to us just as we are. Therefore, a Mary doll should look like the child who owns it. Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared as an Indigenous woman to Juan Diego. Our Lady of Aparecida appeared as a Black woman in Brazil. Our Lady of Fatima appeared as a Portuguese woman. Our Mary doll comes in three different skin tones – dark, medium, and light. Each child should see him or herself reflected in Mary’s face, our loving Mother to all.

Mary is crafted from calico cotton with a polyester filling.
She has embroidered features and long, wool yarn hair.
Each Mary doll is dressed in the same outfit – a removable beige dress and Marian blue veil.

Natalie the Nativity Angel

Natalie the Nativity Angel is a Christian alternative to the mischievous elf popular this time of year. It’s a great way for kids learn to think of others and the true meaning of the season and prepare for the birth of Jesus.

Natalie (meaning “birthday” or “Christmas”) the Nativity Angel comes to visit during advent to help you prepare for the coming birth of Baby Jesus. Each night of advent hide Natalie in your home for your children to find next morning with a note with a Good Deed to do that day.

Natalie is approximately 4″ tall.

A Saint Nicholas Soft Saint Doll from Trendzilly

St Nicholas Handmade Soft Saint Doll is approximately 14″ tall made with soft fleece, making it perfect for your little ones to cuddle up with. Every part of this doll is cut out by hand and is embroidered with a sweet friendly face your child will love. A lot of detail went in to every part of this doll. Great for both Boys and Girls this is the perfect gift for St. Nicholas Day (December 6th) or Christmas. What better way to help little ones learn about the saints.

Adventure Bag and Adventure Log

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: 

“God created everything for man,222 but man in turn was created to serve and love God and to offer all creation back to him”.  Enjoying God’s creation is a wonderful way to grow in love and appreciation for Our Lord!
