    How often are you gifted something that seems so cool in the moment, but is soon forgotten? The appeal is lost. Or worse, the actual gift is lost! I'm looking at you messy shelf in the hallway closet. We live in a consumer culture of things, stuff and... more things. If you, like me, are looking to make your gift-giving more Christ-centered and more meaningful, consider these 7 gifts. Not only are these items beautifully Catholic, but they innovatively go one step further to serve as actual tools to help you and your family celebrate your faith, build the Domestic Church and grow as disciples of Christ.
