Another Priest, Christmas gift question


I think it is getting lost in the other thread.

I have not given my priest his gift yet for Christmas and was thinking that the $50 restaurant certificate is getting a bit boring…we’ve given the same one for 7 years now. What do you all think of a $100 savings bond for $50. It matures in 20 years and he is 51 years old. Thanks for any input!


No idea, so what did ou decide? We gave cash…


Thanks, I guess cash is best. I don’t know if he still likes the restaurant and my husband doesn’t think the US savings bond is a good gift. Just a thought. Thanks.


I still like the restaurant gift idea. Most priests today do not have housekeepers or cooks helping them (remembering my childhood parish in the 1950’s).

God bless…

Along that idea how about a simple cook book. One of the priests who uesed to be in our parish moved to one without a cook and he has to cook dinner for two at least 3 or 4 times a week. At first all he made was pasta, but he said he is trying to learn new recipies. Maybe one of those 30 minute meal books.


Have to say, a savings bond is more like a gift grandma gives a kid.

What about a Amex or Visa gift card? He can use that anywhere.


LOL Grandma gift…thanks for your input

I was considering his retirement :blush:


The Visa card can be used for anything, including retirement.
