Father’s Day is Sunday, June 16th so if you’re anything like me, you’ve just started looking for a meaningful gift that doesn’t scream last minute. Lucky for you, I did the research for the both of us. Here are some thoughtful gifts that honor that special man in your life based on what type of gift you’re looking for.
1.Cooking and drinking
Who doesn’t love a good gift that is really also a gift for themselves? You can’t go wrong with Cooking with the Saints or Drinking with the Saints. Know a chef or bartender that could use an excuse to make a “holy” meal or drink? Then either of these books are for him. Gift this to your husband or father and sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
2. Tiny saints
These TinySaints Key Chain Charms will do the trick. I know the old cliche about men’s car keys not having anything on them but keys, but I love gifting these to my husband, my kid’s Godfathers, and for special moments like Baptism or Confirmation. Each saint comes with a short bio and description of their intercessory causes on the back. These are sweet on their own or you could use it in place of a bow on a wrapped present.
3. Need a book for the man who loves to read?
Behold the Man by Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers talks about male spirituality as a whole, not just in the context of being a father but how a man is able to fully live out who he is called to be through embracing the cross and entering into a covenant relationship with Jesus. Deacon Harold’s great insights will call him deeper into a relationship with Jesus, and there’s no greater gift than that, so this obviously is a winner.
Gift him a pair or two of Sock Religious socks. These present the opportunity for others to strike up casual conversation that will eventually lead to something deeper, while reminding him of how awesome you think he is. The selection is slim, but a solid go-to could be the St. Joseph socks. Pair these with a handwritten note and the Prayer to St. Joseph, and you’ve got a solid gift.
5. Curated gift for the music lover
You could sponsor him as a patron for LoveGood Culture for the year. This sponsorship includes four boxes (one per quarter) filled with CDs, books, and art depending on your sponsorship level. The message behind this ministry is that beauty can change the culture, and they promote this message by showcasing various artists who produce beautiful products in an effort to transcend the consumer towards the ultimate Beauty, Jesus.
