70 Gift Ideas – 2023 Christmas Gift Guide

Christmas Gift Guide

Getting Christmas gifts can add unnecessary stress to a wonderful time of year. We have put together a Christmas Gift Guide to help not only check Christmas presents off the list, but will also support some great Catholic companies (most of these companies are Catholic, but not all of them). We have broken down the gifts into the following categories:

  • Apparel
  • Gears and Gadgets
  • Consumables
  • Books
  • Subscriptions
  • Suggestions for Patrons

Note: Not all these businesses are Catholic businesses. We tried to include as many as we could. If you are a small Catholic business, reach out to us, and we will try to add you to the list. We do not receive any financial kickbacks from these companies.

Peterson Pipe

As the oldest continuously operating briar pipe factory in the world, Peterson Pipes have a certain tradition to uphold, a legacy of craftsmanship dating back over 150 years. Whether you’re browsing for your very first pipe or are a seasoned collector in search of a rare gem, know that every pipe in their catalogue carries with it that same preservation of tradition. A Peterson pipe isn’t just a utilitarian tool; it’s a piece of history you can carry with you in your travels, a faithful companion to accompany you through all that life offers.

With a slightly tapered and more rounded style of bowl, Peterson’s “230” bent Billiard forgoes the cylindrical, tubular shaping cues typically seen from the Irish marque. That said, Peterson’s conventionally muscular style of shank and transition is still clearly evident. Despite these hearty proportions, however, the “230” remains a compact pipe in terms of overall length, well suited to hands-free clenching and an excellent choice for travel.

Revived in 2022, Peterson’s Emerald series resurrects one of the Irish marque’s best-selling lines. It presents pipes dressed in the factory’s recognizable rustication and decorated with the Emerald line’s characteristic brass rings and namesake acrylic accent. Combining Peterson’s signature shaping style with a tasteful color palette that evokes Ireland’s verdant landscape, this Emerald pipe also features a P-Lip stem of vulcanite, further embodying Peterson’s historic reputation for innovation and pipe-smoking comfort. Learn more here.

This is why we made SaintCards.  Our family wants to invest into the Catholic Domestic Church to help parents fulfill their mission in “teaching their children to discover their vocation as children of God” (CCC 2226).

Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine

Hear me out – I know it’s expensive. But as a parent, the days of sipping coffee or actually going to a coffee shop are a memory of the distant past.

Smoke Wagon Whiskey 

Just released in fall of 2019, the goal was to create an affordable everyday bourbon that had that unique and unmistakable Smoke Wagon flavor, consisting of delicate sweet notes with a rye spice finish. Barrels with our same high rye mash bill were racked on the top two floors of the warehouse and never rotated. The higher the floor the hotter it gets in the summer causing more expansion and more movement into the wood. Because we don’t chill filter, these combined aspects create a bourbon that is rich and creamy beyond its years. Never rotating the barrels ensures there are no harsh tannin flavors and the high rye mash bill adds a delightfully spicy and nutty finish. Shop here.


Cremo Shaving Cream

Their original formula that got everybody talking. A subtle citrus scent makes for a highly bright, fresh and enjoyable shave. Cremo contains unique molecules that become impossibly slick when mixed with water, so your blade can glide effortlessly over skin. You’ll enjoy a clean, comfortable shave and astonishingly smooth skin while fighting nicks, razor burn and irritation. A great stocking stuffer.


Must-Have Books


Compendium of Sacramentals by Shaun McAfee

This beautiful book written and compiled by Shaun McAfee and published by TAN Publishing is one for every Catholic home. The Catholic Faith posseses a treasury of devotions, prayers, and rituals to draw us deeper into the spiritual life. Among these gifts, sacramentals hold a unique and vital place in the lives of all who seek God’s grace. From rosaries and crucifixes to medals and relics, from bells and candles to salts and scapulars, these seemingly ordinary signs, when woven into our everyday lives, sanctify us and better prepare us to “receive the fruit of the sacraments” (CCC 1677).

The Intellectual Life by A.G. Sertillanges, O.P.

“[This] is above all a practical book. It discusses with a wealth of illustration and insight such subjects as the organization of the intellectual worker’s time, materials, and his life; the integration of knowledge and the relation of one’s specialty to general knowledge; the choice and use of reading; the discipline of memory; the taking of notes, their classification and use; and the preparation and organization of the final production.


Leisure the Basis of Culture by Josef Pieper

One of the most important philosophy titles published in the twentieth century, Josef Pieper’s Leisure, the Basis of Culture is more significant, even more crucial, today than it was when it first appeared more than fifty years ago. This edition also includes his work The Philosophical Act. Leisure is an attitude of the mind and a condition of the soul that fosters a capacity to perceive the reality of the world. Pieper shows that the Greeks and medieval Europeans, understood the great value and importance of leisure. He also points out that religion can be born only in leisure — a leisure that allows time for the contemplation of the nature of God. Leisure has been, and always will be, the first foundation of any culture. Pieper maintains that our bourgeois world of total labor has vanquished leisure, and issues a startling warning: Unless we regain the art of silence and insight, the ability for non-activity, unless we substitute true leisure for our hectic amusements, we will destroy our culture — and ourselves. Available on Amazon.

Living Beyond Sunday: Making Your Home a Holy Place by Adam and Haylee Minihan and David and Pamela Niles

Shameless plug…

Incorporate faith into your day-to-day family life. Our relationship with God is not supposed to stay within the walls of our parish when we leave Sunday Mass. Instead, faith should transform our hearts, our families, and our homes into a welcoming place to encounter Christ. But this isn’t always easy. Home life can be difficult and busy, and it’s easy to get distracted from the point of it all: raising a family of saints. In Living Beyond Sunday: Making Your Home a Holy Place, married couples Adam and Haylee Minihan and David and Pamela Niles share what has helped them make their homes a place of encounter with God–a place where saints are being made. This book goes beyond the aesthetic or surface-level attributes of a Catholic home. Beyond that, it shares how to foster holiness in all the little moments in Catholic family life.

The Thomist – A Speculative Quarterly Review

The Thomist is a peer-reviewed academic journal that appeals to a wide international readership in the university, the seminary, and the Church. In the tradition and spirit of Thomas Aquinas, it seeks to promote original and penetrating inquiry into the full range of contemporary philosophical and theological questions. It undertakes particularly to support sustained discussion of issues of philosophy and systematic theology, where such discussion can be advanced by creative use of the thought of Aquinas and significant authors in the Thomistic tradition. In this way The Thomist seeks to cultivate a fruitful dialogue between modern and contemporary philosophical systems and the classical tradition of philosophy and Christian theology. Subscription from CUA.
