Fontanini by Roman Nativity Set
If you are looking for a beautiful Nativity set, I wanted to share mine with you because now might be a great time to start your collection as the prices drop quite a bit in January. My husband actually purchased my first set (the 6 piece Fontanini Lighted Nativity Set) for me right after the holidays a few years ago, and it can save you quite a bit by buying after Christmas. I also LOVE the idea of a set like this for a wedding gift.
I started my collection with the 6 piece Fontanini Lighted Nativity Set which actually happens to be on sale right now for 1/2 off! *keep in mind, this price could change at anytime. Plus, shipping is FREE with Amazon Prime. I want to point out that a few reviewers gave this set bad reviews stating that it was ONLY the nativity set, and no characters, but I believe that they are getting confused as to where they ordered from. The set I shared is sold from Fontanini by Roman, which is where mine came from and it was definitely a 6 piece set. I suggest that when you order, you just make sure it’s coming from that seller.

I also shop directly off of the Fontanini site from time to time as they have some pretty awesome sales. However, right now, this nativity set is still well over $200 on their site, so this Amazon price is a great deal.
Why I love this nativity set
One of the reasons that I love collecting these items is because they have become a huge part of our Christmas traditions. We love to get our set out each year. I also love to add to my collection, so my husband and kids always have gift ideas in mind for me so it makes Christmas shopping for mom really easy 🙂
The lighted nativity (it has a small bulb and it just plugs into an outlet) is so pretty during the holidays, such a wonderful decor piece and it makes for a lovely display in our front room.
Another reason that I love this set is because these pieces are made of a polymer type material and they are so durable. My kids have played with them over and over again, and they really do stand up to the test of time. The baby Jesus is removable which is a neat feature as you can actually place him in Mary’s arm and another feature that I really love is the fact that the pieces each come with story books that explain each character, and even include a story that quite often has a biblical reference.
