Here's some ideas:
Ready-paid gas cards for him to fill his tank at a filling station near the church. Priests put a lot of mileage on their cars.
Ditto for a credit in his name at a local repair/filling station. Or go as a group project and take his car in for new tires and a rotation/balance if it needs it.
Gift cards for local grocery store. Priests have to eat too.
Amazon.com, TAN Books, Catholic Book Club... whatever... gift card to that so he can build his library and get books for his own continuing moral/spiritual education. One parish I was at, they gave us a list of books a departing priest wanted, and we all picked out one we'd pay for and signed our names to the book plate and gave a check and the lady handling it got the books.
All Father had to do was go through a long list and make up his wish list.
A certificate of hours donated to a project at the church... gardening, repairs, something to help.
Movie theater/Blockbuster cards. Priests like to go to the movies too.
A gift certificate to a good shoe store or shoe repair shop. I notice eventually priests all get a cracked sole on their right shoe from all that genuflecting.
And cash. If you want to be innovative about it, use it as gift wrap for a bucket of golf balls. (Are there priests who DON'T play golf?)
Yes not all priest play golf. Take Padre Pio for example? :)
But all priests want to feel like they made the right decision, right? Well I found this music which is mazing and is made by a grammy award winning producer. :)
You can never go wrong with a grammy. It is a CD with English, Spanish, Instrumentals for school choirs, fundraisers or personal karaoke :thumbsup: Then there is also a tribute to one very memorable priest, Pope John Paul the Second. AND To top that (it is sold separately) there is an amazing, touching and moving, music video. I was privileged enough to get the chance to watch it.
This stuff is truly amazing. It is an "anthem of the priesthood" as they say it.
It is 10 USD each but they have amazing discounts for schools, churches, mass orders and stores. I saw them when I was trying to find a gift for my priest on google. Pretty awesome. They are on iTunes, and Amazon but personally I like iTunes!
They have T-Shirts, hats, CD's, DVD's, posters. Great album cover too.
This is great. It is an awesome gift for "Our Priests" Well time for me to buy some stuff.
To sum it up it is, well... AMAZING!
