Inside the vestment, the prayerfulness, the humility, and many other priestly attributes, that priest you have in mind are also human and like every other human, he will welcome the act of getting gifts.

Gifts giving remains one of the most genuine ways to express love and show concern to everyone, we will all smile at the thought of receiving gifts, especially from those who mean a lot to us and people who we have sacrificed for.
Your priest is one of those who have sacrificed for you, although in no were as comparable as our lord and savior but he has dedicated his life to teaching and spreading the word and for such a major sacrifice you should get any of these gifts for priests for him (her). Before I proceed, these are gifts for priests when they are leaving your parish or church.
Best Gifts for Priests
1. White Tab Collar Pack
This might seem like a pretty little gift to get your priest, it might look to you like it is insignificant, I mean he probably has one already.
The thing with most priests is they are pretty humble and would accept anything no matter how little as it is the act that matters.
Well, a pack of white tab collars isn’t a “little” gift, you’ll be getting your priest a vast amount of options to pick from.
2. Wooden Faith Box
This is one awesome gift for every religious Christian, especially your priest. It is the representation of the three crosses present at the crucifixion of Jesu Christ.
It is further adorned with a LED light that gives the cross a unique reflection on the wall when it is dark. It also gives room for your priest to have his bible, lectionary, or any other religious book. This is awesome decor to have in his house.
3. Leather Padfolio
You are likely to find most rev fathers with this type of padfolio, they often have leaflets, diaries, little prayer books and so many other documents in them.
Right here is a beautiful padfolio made from faux leather. The most obvious part of this is the bible verse scribbled at its front which reminds the priest of his great reward.
4. Olive Wood Crucifix
This wood cross depicts pictures of the fourteen stations of the cross. It is typical that Christians pray the stations of the cross while moving, but in tight spaces, one can pray it while fixated at a point. This cross would help your priest meditate and he can have this in his private chapel.
5. Woven, Lined Madonna and Child
This is the depiction of Our Lady with baby Jesus it can also be used as a rosary pouch. It is an ideal gift for a stylish priest. Besides the rosary, he can have other stuff in it like a prayer book, pamphlet, and many others.
6. Gold Italian Rosary
Of course, this isn’t real gold, I mean if it were you’ll be putting your priest at risk. Nevertheless, this is one iconic gold rosary that would make praying it even more relaxing and premium.
7. Relic Keepsake Rosary Holder
This is a bit similar to one of the gifts above, in place of being a pouch this is a stand that features a carved image of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This holder is more of a stationary gift, one your priest would seldom carry around.
8. Madonna Rosary Holder
This is another Madonna rosary holder, perfect for keeping his rosary in good shape and having it readily available at all times.
9. Travel Organizer
We have some priests who are always on the road, I think they are called missionary priests, various priestly organizations entail the priest always being mobile.
Getting this travel organizer for such a priest would be you doing him a great favor. With this, his movement would be a bit more organized and the chances of him forgetting something would be slim.
10. Relic Rosary Trinket Box
This rosary trinket gives that nostalgic feeling of centuries ago. It is a gift made of bronze and would be a good item to have in his house or private chapel. It is one iconic box with carvings of Jesus Christ being a teacher.
11. Toiletry Bag
This toiletry bag is another ideal gift for the priest who is often on the road, it is the perfect bag to help him organize perfectly for every journey that the mission demands of him.
12. Mass KIT
Most of what the priest uses on the alter isn’t gotten for free, the church often provides them, however, there are some mass celebrations
that he needs to make, and carrying the other vessels in the church wouldn’t be ideal, in such cases a Mass kit such as this is the perfect item to get him.
With this, your mobile priest would always be armed with his vessels to celebrate mass at any point in time. This mass kit is to a priest what a gun is to a soldier.
13. Weighted Blanket
Although he is covered by the blood of Jesus, it doesn’t mean he can’t catch a cold or wouldn’t need a blanket for the winter. Make his cold nights and evenings a bit more relaxed and cozy by grabbing this weighted blanket.
14. Sacrament Keepsake Box
With this box, your priest can properly arrange his mass vessels or kit and also have other important documents and books neatly arranged inside here.
This box is made of bronze and is adorned with some religious symbols making it an even more perfect gift for your priest. Minus its use case as a storage box, the beauty this box offers could make it serve as a decoration.
15. Praying Hands Rosary Holder
The name says it all, it is a carving of a hand in prayers while being engraved with some inspirational words for any religious receiver.
16. The Virgin Mary Tapestry
This blanket is woven from cotton and features an image representation of The Blessed Virgin Mary, angels, and she carrying Jesus.
It is one beautiful piece to have at home and would breathe a light of religiosity into every home or bed the blanket is arranged on.
17. Gallon Water Bottle
For his journeys, his walk out, his jogging, on strolls, and during office hours, this gallon of water is the perfect gift for every man.
It would help your priest stay hydrated, especially after his long preaching, counseling, or confessions. The use case of this water bottle is pretty vast.
18. Funny Coffe Mug
While the inscription on this mug would first make everyone laugh, I have to admit that I take those words seriously.
I’m sometimes skeptical of what I say around my priests, especially during confession ALTHOUGH I am aware that priests are under very serious oaths and have a duty to never reveal.
19. Fascia or Sash
You often see your priest with a long piece of cloth on his neck, something that resembles a sash. Yeah, it is part of the vestments all priests often wear. You can put a smile on your father’s face by getting him this fabulous sash.
20. Religious Gift Box
This gift box features a pen and a keyholder and the box in itself is a great piece to get your priest, it also has a letter meant for him to show how appreciative you are of him.
Wrapping it up on Gifts for Priests
Some very thoughtful gifts for priests include a mass kit box, a rosary holder, a priest gift box, a sash, a leather portfolio, a travel bag, and other items that would make his mission a bit easier. Getting gifts for most religious men of God doesn’t have to see you breaking the bank because the thought is what matters the most. Still, I often suggest you get them gifts they could use.
