Catholic Fathers' Day Gift Ideas
With Father’s Day just around the corner, finding the perfect gift for Dad is on everyone’s mind. Whether the Dad in your life is a new father with baby, or a grandfather spoiling the next generation, Aquinas has gift ideas for every Dad.
What better way to show your Dad that he is the ideal father than to compare him to the man who raised Jesus? Consider St. Joseph when choosing a gift for Dad. Dad’s who love to start their day with coffee, check out The St. Joseph Coffee mug that celebrates fatherhood. Or place an outdoor statue of Joseph and the Christ Child to watch as Dad keeps the yard looking its best. When it’s time to relax, Dad can sit back in his favorite chair and watch Joseph of Nazareth, the first feature film about the saint.
With summer on its way, give your Dad a way to keep cool and share his faith in a Catholic T shirt. Aquinas carries a wide range of t-shirts from the Lord’s Gym to the Smiling Icthus. For a more tailored look, choose a Chi Ro collared polo shirt. The designer label has been replaced with the Chi Rho, a sign for the designer of the universe. Keep Dad warm all year round with a sweatshirt or zip up hoodie that shows Dad follows the “Lord’s Gym.”
Show Dad how much he’s worth by giving him something small he can hold on to over the years. For the formal Dad, Aquinas has a simple silver cross or Holy Trinity tie tack and cuff links. Consider a saint medal of your Dad’s patron saint, or the patron saint of his career. Encourage your father’s prayer life with a new rosary. Aquinas has hundreds of rosaries in a variety of styles to fit every Dad.
Books and Movies
Help Dad relax while you nourish his soul. Let him sit back and watch “Champions of Faith” a series of movies about Professional athletes who serve God through their careers and family. While”The Man Talk” explores authentic Catholic Manhood and how to achieve it. Consider a book of reflections on modern fatherhood such as “Amazing Grace for Fathers” that reminds Dad of your love all year round.
Don’t forget those men who sacrifice having children to be called “Father.” Show your parish priest that you support his vocation this special time of year. Aquinas and More has several Priest appreciation cards that honor spiritual fathers, too. Or, consider a framed print if his patron or parish saint.
