Father’s Day is next Sunday, June 16th, and it’s a wonderful opportunity to honor the fathers and father-figures in our lives. If you’re looking for a meaningful gift for your Catholic dad this Father’s Day, we’ve got you covered! Here are 8 ideas that are sure to be a hit.
While ties may be a traditional Father’s Day gift, in 2019 it’s all about the socks. Let your dad add a pop of personality to his outfit with Catholic-themed socks, like the ones from Sock Religious. Designs include St. Joseph, the Rosary, Pope Francis, St. John Paul II, Our Lady of Guadalupe, and many more!
Catholic Beard Balm
Whether your dad rocks a beard like Father Richard Simon or can pull off a mustache like Patrick Madrid, beard balm is a great way to keep his facial hair looking sharp. And with Catholic beard balm he can not only look great, but smell great, too. With balms and oils that smell like chrism or incense, your dad’s signature scent will be distinctly Catholic.
Does your dad enjoy a pint of quality beer every now and then? So did the saints! Add a Catholic touch to his next beer (or root beer!) with this pint glass from Providential Co. It includes a famous quote from St. Bridget of Ireland and an icon of her on the back. Or check out these coasters with quotes from Catholic saints and holy role models.
St. Joseph, Pray for Us!
Many Catholic dads have a particular devotion to St. Joseph, so Father’s Day is a great opportunity to give St. Joseph a place of prominence in your home. Providential Co. has prints of St. Joseph or the Holy Family available, or you can search on Etsy and find tons of Catholic artists who offer images of St. Joseph and the Holy Family. With so many to choose from, you’re sure to find one that will fit perfectly in your home.
Does your Catholic dad have a devotion to a certain saint? A simple gift that incorporates his patron saint is a great way to make your gift extra personal. Whether it is a beautiful saint print (like the Our Lady of Guadalupe one shown above) from Be a Heart Design, or prayer candles and buttons from Providential Co., or a cute charm he can keep on his keys from Tiny Saints, give your dad a gift that shows you care.
Fit and Faithful
If your dad loves his faith and loves to exercise, then SoulCore is a great way to combine the two. SoulCore offers a workout that combines the prayers of the Divine Mercy Chaplet or the Rosary with physical movement to fully engage the body and soul. Your dad can strengthen his muscles and his faith with these workouts.
You may be wondering, what about a smart speaker is Catholic? Well, they are a great way to deepen your faith when you use them to play Relevant Radio®! Enabling the Relevant Radio skill on your Echo or Echo Dot allows you direct access to all of your favorite Relevant Radio podcasts and audio prayers. Find out how you can use your smart speaker to deepen your prayer life with this guide.
For the Dad Who Has Everything
If your dad has asked for no gifts this Father’s Day, or if he already has everything he could want, consider making a donation to a charity in his name, or have a Mass offered for him. If he is a fan of Relevant Radio, you can make a donation and then print out this certificate to let him know that he will be prayed for during Mass at a Relevant Radio chapel.
To all the fathers, grandfathers, godfathers, priests, and spiritual fathers, we hope you have a very Happy Father’s Day!
