Check out these suggestions for unique gifts for Dad from small Catholic businesses and artisans.

Dads are notoriously hard to shop for, but we’ve got you covered with these thoughtful gifts from small Catholic shops! And if he says he doesn’t need anything, just give him the best gift of all: Pray for him, especially for his fatherly vocation.

Treat him to a box full of high-quality personal care products, all inspired by faith, with the Disciple Glory and Shine gift box.

The dad who appreciates a good hot sauce will love a gift box of Monk Sauce, and it supports a Benedictine monastery!

These chocolates and caramels made by contemplative nuns are the best he’ll ever try, we promise!

Catholic Balm Co. sells beard balm, lip balm, lotion bars, and other personal care products that smell fantastic and will help tame his quarantine beard.

It’s an open secret in the craft beer world that monks make the best brews. Order Dad some Trappist beer and you’ll cement your status as favorite child.

Does he love a good game night? Check out these fun and clever Catholic board games.

These modern, comfortable men’s shirts keep his vocation on his mind as he’s going about an ordinary day. Trad dads will enjoy this Bells and Smells shirt.

If he’s behind the wheel a lot, a steering wheel rosary will help him make the best use of that driving time!

A small Carmelite monastery in Wyoming supports itself by selling Mystic Monk Coffee, and their brews are divine. Send dad a bag or even a subscription for a gift he’ll appreciate bright and early every morning.

Make Dad’s mornings even better with this handsome, saint-themed coffee mug.

The Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration sell hand-made, all-natural soaps that come in a convenient gift box.

Everyone needs socks, and these Catholic socks come in fun, saint-themed patterns.

A subscription to Formed gives access to hundreds of books, movies, articles, TV shows, podcasts, and other Catholic media. A great way to grow in faith!

For the prayer warrior, Manual for Men helps equip him for battle. Godly men will treasure this book.

Rugged Rosaries are made of “military grade, 550 Paracord,” appropriate for a powerful spiritual weapon. The Memento Mori Rosary is especially tough!

History buffs won’t be able to put down Heroic Catholic Chaplains: Stories of the Brave and Holy Men Who Dodged Bullets While Saving Souls. Is anything more inspiring than true stories of courage and heroism?

Word on Fire Ministries’ first book of the Bible — the Gospels is like a “cathedral in print.” It’s ideal for the man who wants his life to be centered on the good, true, and beautiful.

He can make a physical space for prayer anywhere he goes with these beautiful home altars.

A planner is a necessity for many people, and the Monk Manual adds an element of depth and purpose, based on timeless monastic principles.
