A thoughtful, faith-filled gift can help them remember that God’s love will go with them, anywhere they go.
Just one verse each day.
Graduation season is upon us, and we’re looking for the perfect gifts for the graduates we love.
Whether they’re heading off to college or entering the workforce, our grads are sure to be feeling a mix of excitement and nerves!
A thoughtful, faith-filled gift can help them remember that God’s love will go with them, no matter where they go.
Here are 7 gifts that are perfect for Catholic graduates.
A daily devotional
I asked my sister who’s graduating this month, and she said she’d love a daily devotional to take with her to college.
Magnificat offers an updated daily devotional, complete with spiritual reading and the Divine Office.
I’m also intrigued by this one, Keeping the Faith: Prayers for College Students.
A classic spiritual book would work perfectly too!
A religious medal
Another great suggestion from my sister is a metal scapular or a necklace with a medal of a beloved patron saint.
This is a special way for graduates to keep their faith close to their hearts, literally!
Perfect for wearing around campus, Brick House in the City’s fashion-forward shirts are inspired by different saints and Catholic prayers and devotions.
A special rosary
Okay, yes, odds are good that a Catholic graduate already owns a rosary, or several. So the idea is to get them something different: A rosary that’s easy to take anywhere, unlike the delicate one they got for their First Communion.
My absolute favorite pick would be Chews Life’s truly beautiful rosary bracelets that come with a moveable charm so she can keep her place as she prays the Rosary throughout the day.
I also love these sturdy Rugged Rosaries made of unbreakable paracord and billed as “battle beads.” Talk about a spiritual weapon worthy of St. Michael!
Every student needs an academic planner, and there are lots of amazing Catholic planner options out there. This is a gift that will get tons of use!
Sunday Mass Journal
Mass becomes an even more special and sacred experience when there’s time to reflect on the readings and prayers. Encourage love for the Holy Mass with the Catholic Mass journal, Every Sacred Sunday.
Catholic Journaling Bible
There are several beautiful options for Catholic journaling Bibles.This gift is a beautiful way to inspire reading and reflection on Sacred Scripture.
