Father’s Day is coming up on June 21st, 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 9 ideas that are sure to be a hit.
While ties may be a traditional Father’s Day gift, in 2020 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, St. Francis of Assisi, 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 Barbatus beard balm from Catholic Balm Co. 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? If so, it will be a special treat to get him a Catholic beer! Pick up a pack of Trappist ale, like the one made at Spencer Brewery, America’s first and only Trappist beer maker. Made by the monks at St. Joseph’s Abbey near Boston, Trappist ale is not only a unique beer that comes from centuries-old tradition, but it helps support the monks of St. Joseph’s Abbey.
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 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.
If your dad prides himself on being able to handle the heat, then Monk Sauce is the perfect gift for him! Made by the Benedictine monks at Subiaco Abbey in Arkansas, this habanero hot sauce will add spice and flavor to almost any dish. But it is not for the faint of heart. Monk sauce clocks in at 250,000 on the Scoville Heat Unit Scale. By comparison, Tabasco® Habanero Pepper Sauce clocks in at about 7,000 Scoville units. Those monks don’t mess around!
Super Strong Scapular
If there’s a dad (or priest!) in your life who has a devotion to the brown scapular, but his keeps breaking or wearing out, then consider getting him a Super Scapular. The American-made cord and Australian merino wool are just some of the reasons it’s touted as the most durable and comfortable scapular in the world! And, for every scapular purchased at their site, Scapulars.com gives one to an elderly person in need for free.
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.

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!
