Catholic Gifts for All Ages


catholic gifts for all ages

Each year for Christmas, I try to purchase a religious gift for both my children and godchildren.  Since I also acknowledge their Baptism anniversary, I started to run low on ideas and put a call out on Google+.

Here are several Catholic gift ideas appropriate for all ages:

  • Holy water & font
  • Wall Crucifix
  • Guardian angel icon
  • Bible or bible story book
  • St Michael the archangel icon
  • Rosary or rosary bracelet
  • Miraculous medal
  • Saints medal or 4-way medal
  • Statue or other icon
  • Patron saint item like a doll, icon, book, etc.

I have found beautiful European icons on Autom and Monastery Icons makes quality icons as well.

If you are looking for a less religious gift that will benefit the churches servants, you could try Monastery Greetings.  The have jams & jellies, candies, beer, popcorn & more made by religious men and women.

How do you support your faith in your gift giving?

  1. I like to give religious gifts, too. In fact, one of the three gifts my children receive each Christmas is “something that will bring them closer to Jesus,” their “frankincense” gift … Sometimes it is hard to come up with new ideas. I have given many of the things on your list! I try to personalize it as best as I can (i.e. something that pertains to the saint they learned about in religion or what they seem to be drawn to in our faith). Other ideas: images or statues for their rooms; a CD of a favorite Christian musician or saint story; DVDs of a saint or faith-based story; nativity sets that they can play with; books; those saint pillowcases … This year I am excited about the Shining Light Dolls and those Tiny Saints charms :-)

    I also like your ideas for non-religious gifts that benefit a monastery! That is a great idea for grandparents or teachers or others on my list!
