Holy Holidays: 125 Christian-Owned Businesses to Support while You Christmas Shop

This article will be pinned to the top of the blog until closer to Christmas so you can easily locate it for shopping. If you’re looking for my most recent article, keep scrolling. It immediately follows this one.

It’s (almost) Black Friday! Time to shop til you drop…into your favorite comfy chair, fire up ye olde internet, and check out the deals at these businesses owned by some of your brothers and sisters in Christ.

There’s nothing wrong with shopping at a big box store that’s advertising great deals or supporting the mom and pop shop down the street, but if you see something you like for a good price at one of these online stores, why not throw a little business to family? Galatians 6:10 says:

So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.

See an opportunity? Grab it and do good to someone in the household of faith.

All the disclaimers:

πŸŽ„ Here’s how this list came about: Every year, I put out a general call on social media and the blog asking people to recommend Christian-owned businesses for this article. Well, you know how things on social media get shared around to a friend of a friend and aunt Myrtle’s third cousin’s step-nephew’s veterinarian. So what I’m saying is, while the people who recommended or own these businesses say that these are Christian-owned businesses, I can’t vouch for the actual, day to day spiritual state of any of the recommenders or owners. I’ve checked out each web site as best I can to make sure none of them promote anything unbiblical (giving the benefit of the doubt when possible – these are gifts, for not sermons), but I can’t tell you whether or not Stan of “Stan’s Snow Shovels” is a faithful member of his local church.

β€’If the theology of the business owner is extremely important to you, I urge you to contact him/her directly to inquire before making your purchase.

β€’I would strongly encourage you to thoroughly vet the theology of any Christian author or musician listed below whose book, music, or other materials you’re considering purchasing.

β€’If you do see something blatantly unbiblical (for example: support of homosexuality, abortion, clear heresy, etc.) on one of these sites, it’s possible I missed it or it was added after I vetted the site. Please let me know and I’ll check it out.

πŸŽ„ These are Christian-owned businesses, but the products they make are not all necessarily “Christian” (i.e. they don’t all have Bible verses or Christian sayings on them).

πŸŽ„ Take the category listings below loosely. If you’re looking for something specific, take a look at as many of these businesses as you can, because most of them carry more than one type of product (ex: jewelry and wall art, apparel and home decor). I’ve tried to categorize them according to the main product type they sell, but many are quite eclectic. You might find the coffee mug you’re looking for under the “apparel” category.

πŸŽ„ Most of these businesses are carried over from last year’s article. A few of them seem as though they may have taken a hiatus (i.e. no social media posts for months). Check with the owner to make sure she’s still in business, and if you find out that she’s definitely not, please let me know so I can remove the business.

πŸŽ„ Some of these businesses are based outside the U.S. Be aware of this with regard to shipping costs, time, etc. when ordering.

πŸŽ„ Some of these businesses may be having Cyber Monday sales instead of Black Friday sales. Check with each business to get the best deals!

Christmas Shopping Resources

πŸŽ„ Check the comments section of this article to see if my readers have posted any new suggestions.

πŸŽ„ Can’t find what you need here? Amazon has a great program called Amazon Smile. It allows you to designate a charity that will receive a percentage of every purchase you make. There are scads of Christian organizations to choose from: churches (maybe even yours!), ministries, missions organizations, pro-life organizations, and others.
