What gifts to buy a Priest?

What you need to know when you are looking for gift ideas for your Priest is that they receive a great many decorative ornaments, religious themed gifts. So many that sadly some may spend their lifetime in storage rather than on display. 

This is not what you want to happen so we need to be creative and think outside the box which is what I have done with the gift ideas for Priests that feature on this page. They include a range of 'practical' themed gifts that your Priest can use! They retain the religious symbolism and decorative features but they can be put to good use by your Priest. Thus avoiding a lifetime spend gathering dust in the basement.

Let's get started on how you select the perfect gift for your Priest. To skip the detail and fast forward to the store ENTER HERE

Priest Gift Giving Occasions

There are lots of occasions when you might want to buy your Priest a gift, these include:

  1. Priest that is newly ordained 
  2. Priest Ordination Anniversary 
  3. Priest Retirement 
  4. Priest Leaving The Parish 
  5. Priest Birthday 
  6. Priest Christmas 
  7. Priest thank you 
  8. Get Well Priest

Things to consider when choosing a gift for your Priest

Priest Ordination Anniversary Gifts   1. Budget

Depending on your budget you could buy something as simple and inexpensive (yet practical) as a personalized keychain (less than $5) which includes commemorative details as required for your gifting occasion. If you want something more substantial you could gift your Priest a personalized, commemorative watch. These are very popular for Priests, always useful and literally 'timeless'. A mid range priced gift would be a religious themed stained glass (print) wall clock with personalized details. View the full range of Priest Gift Ideas Here.

  2. Occasion

Considering the list above of Priest gift giving occasions you will want to choose something that fits that theme, need. For example a Priest Ordination Anniversary gift ideally reflects the number of years the Priest has been ordained, has text template fields to add his name, anniversary dates and a line of Bible scripture or verse as desired. A Priest retirement gift might differ slightly in that you wish to include details of the Parish, a personal message from the ministry and more. If the Priest is celebrating a birthday you may opt for a light-hearted humor gift such as a funny Priest mug or t-shirt.

  3. Interests

Priests do have interests outside of the church and you might like to gift them something that compliments those interests and hobbies. Such gift ideas might include something as simple as a personalized deck of cards with a photo of one of the Priest's favored places of worship. Other interest themed idea include personalized golf club covers (if your Priest enjoys a round of golf). A customized jigsaw puzzle is a great idea for Priest's who enjoy puzzles. Zazzle (world's largest print on demand store) has a wide range of personalized gifts for various sports and activities from ping pong (table tennis) paddles to sportsbags. Any of these with your own custom spin would make a great gift idea for a busy Priest who enjoys his/her downtime.
