Think about it for a moment: When’s the last time you sat down and wrote a nice card or letter to your dad, or someone who’s been like a dad? If it’s been a while, go for it this year. It may seem like a challenge, but you’ll never regret it.

If you’re wondering how to get started on ways to “speak your love” to dad, take heart. Many Christian cards for Father’s Day can help you find the right words to express gratitude, joy, fond memories or just to let dad know he’s special. They can also inspire you to include a handwritten message that speaks to the heart and makes the card that much more meaningful.

Here are Some Idea-generators for Writing Dad That Note This Father’s Day:

What’s one special memory you have with him? It doesn’t have to be a holiday, or anything considered a “big” moment. It can be a simple gesture or experience you had with him that he may not even realize made such an impression on your life. Share it in a few sentences.

Did Dad take part in acts of service that impacted you? Mention it to him inside a card. Sometimes it’s the selfless acts like reaching out to an elderly neighbor or involvement in a church project that you remember so well – and he’ll be so thrilled that you noticed his acts of service.

What’s funny about Dad? All dads are funny in their own way. If he says or does something that always gives you a chuckle, let him know. This is a lighthearted way to express your love and appreciation that’s still very meaningful.

What did you learn from dad? Maybe it was how to mow the yard or change a tire. Maybe it was managing money, a favorite recipe or how to respect your elders. Whatever you learned from dad, take a moment to let him know in a few sentences. He’ll treasure the knowledge he’s passed on to you, even if it seems like something commonplace.

As you consider finding the right Christian cards for Father’s Day, think of buying from a made-in-the-USA source that has a great story of its own: The Printery House. For more than 60 years, The Printery House has created and lettered unique religious greeting card designs and stationary, all from the on-site print shop in the hills of northwest Missouri. All sales are part of the apostolic work of the monks at Conception Abbey, so you’ll know you’re making a difference.

Dear old dad. Or grandpa. Or a favorite mentor. Whoever the father figure is in your life, the one who has given you encouragement and support throughout your years, this may be the year to say no to the tie and go for more unique Father’s Day gifts. Here are some ideas for unique Father’s Day gifts when you want to honor and celebrate the amazing role he has played in your life.

Dads usually like to be outside. Go for something he can enjoy talking about outside with others, like a mini-fountain (pretty affordable nowadays) or a quality set of solar lights that really will outlast weather, pets and kids. You might also consider a new garden stone – you can find some to share your faith at The Printery House, or make your own with paint.

Dads usually like some quiet time alone. Give him a new devotional or bible study book, and enclose in it a homemade coupon for some quiet time anytime he needs it. (The kids can make this part!)

Try a homemade painting on a hobby store canvas. Try implementing a favorite phrase or scripture into the canvas, or, purchase a bold-colored piece of Christian art work or all art online that’ll brighten up his home or office space.

Perk him up with some specialty coffee beans, and put it with a masculine-inspired mug. If you wanted to go the extra mile, package this with a note saying you’d like to sit down and enjoy a few moments across the table together talking, anytime.

Many men, across ages and demographics, can resonate with a sturdy cross to remind them where they have their faith anchored. New Celtic knot designs and stand-up designs are sure to be a great compliment to his desk or home. This is one unique Father’s Day gift that doesn’t go out of style.

Don’t forget as you’re looking for a great gift to celebrate him, pick up Father’s Day cards and religious greeting cards for other men who have inspired you. The cards made by The Printery House have been made in the USA on-site at the print shop in Conception Abbey, MO for 60 years – and purchases support the apostolic work of the monks who live and work at the Benedictine Monastery.

Inspirational Gifts That Honor Dad on His Day

Fathers are the ones who play ball with the kids in the backyard, love to sled down the
hills at the speed of light, and read them stories about super heroes at night. But children of Christian fathers know that dads mean more even than that. A believing dad shows his children what it is like to be loved, guided and cared for by a heavenly Father. On Father’s Day, kids want to inspire the man that inspires faith in them!

Still, if your dad is like the majority of dads, it is hard to pin him down and get him to tell you what gift would make him feel loved and inspired on Father’s Day. Lots of dads live by the “I don’t need anything” motto. Without any ideas from dad, standard gifts lean towards barbeque equipment or outdoors gear. But, Father’s Day isn’t just about what dad needs, it’s about telling him how much you need him and how grateful you are that he is there for you. So here are just a few ideas for inspirational gifts to help you send the message loud and clear on Father’s Day.

Inspire His Love for the Bible

Christian fathers love God’s word, but they may not feel like they have all the time they would like to study and know it better. These dads might really appreciate the gift of a
study bible. Study bibles include helpful notes and references to enrich understanding and application of God’s powerful words without needing to go to other resources.

The St. John’s Bible is a unique Father’s Day gift that could easily wind up being a family heirloom. All the Bible text is written in stunning calligraphy and there are 25 pages of gorgeous illumination. The Bible can be purchased as a complete seven-volume set, or it could be given individually with each new set arriving on Father’s Days to come.

Dads might also like receiving the inspirational gift of devotional reading. The
complete Psalter offers dad rich wisdom and words for contemplation that he can
read day by day. Dads who become well-acquainted with the Psalter are prepared
with God’s perspective on life and the many challenges life presents.

Inspire His Frame of Mind

Dad is carrying a load of responsibility each and every day. Give dad the gift of Christian art so that words of faith are there in the middle of those days. Framed verses like Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength remind dad that it doesn’t depend upon him alone, but on the Savior who empowers fathers to fulfill their role.

Inspire His Hobbies

If dad has a hobby, Father’s Day is a great time to bless him with something that will make his hobby hours more enjoyable. Fathers who enjoy gardening might be inspired by a new garden stone or garden statue. Often these pieces include words of faith and welcome.

There are all kinds of little ways to let dad know that his life of faith blesses your life. The Printery House is an online Christian gift store where you can find all of these inspirational gifts and more. Check it out today.


Unique Father’s Day Gifts Dad Will Love

Little Rock Catholic Study Bible

Dads are like main support beams in a house. They don’t attract a lot of attention, but without them everything you see would fall apart. Dad may not enjoy the spotlight, but once a year families pause to thank the man that God has placed into the role of Father. Dads provide security, comfort and strength. And when families are blessed with a dad who follows Christ, the blessings are just that much richer.

That said, it can be a tall order to come up with gifts that bless the man everyone turns to and relies upon. Unique Father’s Day gifts are hard to come by. Common Father’s Day gift ideas usually run along the lines of snazzy electronics, sports paraphernalia, or some new clothes that, to be honest, dad may not even want. Neckties are the ultimate in ‘been there, done that’ Father’s Day gift-giving.

This year why not give dad a gift that is out of the ordinary? If you are fortunate enough to have a Christian father, then give him a gift that celebrates that blessing. Unique Father’s Day gifts are a little easier to come up with when you focus on your dad’s faith, and how it has played a unique role in your own life. At The Printery House, there are a number of faith-related gifts that would be sure to make any dad feel loved and appreciated.

Give dad words of scripture and spiritual leadership to share

Catholic dads may enjoy receiving a new Catholic Study Bible. This Bible is worded for understanding. Visual aids help readers to recognize significant scripture passages. Dads might also appreciate a book containing Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers. Dads are the spiritual leaders in the home, but a book filled with prayers and words of blessing can help them take on that role with more confidence. A bookmark makes an ideal companion gift.

Give dad words of promise and blessing for himself

Dad gives out advice and wisdom, but dads need strengthening and encouragement too. Pocket prayers are terrific ways to keep words of blessing and spiritual encouragement ‘on hand’. At The Printery House you can find the Irish Pocket Prayer. This well-loved prayer is really a blessing. That same blessing can be purchased as a framed wall hanging. The blessing is hand-lettered and adorned with Celtic design. Whether putting his hand in his pocket or glancing up at his office or study wall, these words of prayer and blessing will encourage all day long.

Unique Father’s Day gifts don’t stop there, of course. There is a terrific Life Compass Silver-Plated Key Chain with a great back story. The compass refers to the parting words of wisdom a father gave to his college-bound son. Visit The Printery House website to read the whole story. The important thing about choosing a gift for your dad, is to find a way to say Thank You that resonates with him and lets him know how his life of faith has made an impact on yours.
