A Miraculous Medal
This standard Miraculous Medal for men can be ordered from The Catholic Company. It’s only $18.95 and most men like this design. Usain Bolt proudly wore the Blessed Mother around his neck when he won several gold medals at the Olympics this summer. His medal was gold. You can browse the Catholic Company, The Miraculous Medal Gift Shop or even Amazon to find the perfect medal for each man on your shopping list. Our Lady told Saint Catherine Laboure that anyone who wears the medal around his or her neck would receive extra graces – so this gift is not only from you, but the Queen of Heaven too!
Drinking with the Saints: The Sinner’s Guide to Holy Happy Hour
For a really awesome gift; pair this with a Drink Shaker with a built in shaker. This one is 70% right now -such a great deal! MYXER Cocktail Shaker Set 24 Oz – Premium Bar Tools Kit with Jigger, Built-in Strainer & Recipes This book looks awesome and the reviews reassure that it is! The book contains both great spiritual reading and cocktail recipes! I like how Father Mitch Pacwa, S.J., host of EWTN Live describes the book, in his words:
“Drinking with the Saints becomes an occasion (if not an excuse) to slow one’s pace, savor a drink, and slip not into inebriation but a relaxed look at the saints.”
Definitely a unique, fun gift!
A Book from The Catholic Company
I asked both my brother and my husband to choose something from The Catholic Company’s website – and both of them chose a book. One chose the Manual for Spiritual Warfare and the other chose Cultivating Virtue. Both books provide short readings, but strong messages. They also both look and sound manly 🙂
A Masculine Rosary
This Rosary from SaongJai is a simple and masculine hematite rosary with gun metal beads, Miraculous Medal center, and pardon Crucifix. The natural stone gives this rosary a substantial weighted feel in your hands. The gun metal finish rosary is the ultimate weapon for spiritual warfare! Another option for a more unique gift would be a wrist Rosary from Small Things. Great Love. This hand knotted rosary is cool for a guy to wear and a constant reminder of prayer. If your guy is not one to wear a bracelet, Small Things.Great Love has pocket rosaries too! Catholic Company also has a nice copper pocket rosary!
The holy Rosary is a powerful weapon. Use it with confidence and you will be amazed at the results. St. Josemaria Escriva
The Meditation Palm Cross from Christian Bling
I love how this matte silver cross fits nicely in a pocket and the palm of your hand – and perfectly in a stocking! There is a hole through the cross for you to place a piece of paper with your thoughts and prayers written down (paper included). It’s simple and will serve as a constant reminder to thank God for His blessings and ask Him for help with whatever is needed. IF YOU MAKE A PURCHASE with Christian Bling through ctbling.com/HisGoodness, WRITE IN PARTY NUMBER 1825, AND YOU ARE AUTOMATICALLY ENTERED TO WIN FREE HOSTESS SHOPPING! WINNER WILL BE CHOSEN DECEMBER 14TH!!! Merry Christmas – it’s a giveaway wrapped up inside another giveaway 🙂
But not just any chocolate . . .chocolate made with love and prayer. Trappistine Quality Candy is made by the nuns at Mt St Mary’s Abbey with great joy and love knowing how much people enjoy their candy. It is truly quality candy and absolutely delicious! What a great way to support the cloistered nuns who make it and a way to give a sweet gift P.S. Dark chocolate goes great with red wine . . . and I heard it is good for you 😉 Also, I gave my dad a box of the dark chocolate hearts last year and he LOVED it. Trust me, it’s good.
Saint Michael Chaplet from Rugged Rosaries
Made with a genuine military paracord, this sacramental is unique and a shorter devotion than the Rosary. Many men have a special devotion to St. Michael and have chosen him as a Confirmation Saint or see him as the ultimate defender of the faith.
Lifeboat Coffee gives back 10% of it’s profits to Pro-Life Pregnancy Centers and other pro-life centers. The coffee comes from all over the world. You can purchase K-cups or sample packets to see which roast or origin is the perfect brew.
A Game for the Whole Family
Scattergories has a Catholic Edition! This game is so much fun – and now there is a faith twist to it! How fun will it be to see what answers the man in your life comes up with – and how many laughs you will have together while playing!
An Auto Visor Clip
This Prayer Cross from Amazon reads “Dear Lord, protect me, my passengers and all I pass by with a steady hand and a watchful eye”. You can also purchase a Saint Christopher/Miraculous Medal Visor Clip which some prefer since St. Christopher is the Patron Saint of transportation, traveling, storms, epilepsy, bachelors and more. This is a very affordable gift and a very loving gesture that let’s your loved one know that you pray he is always safe.

The Drinking with the Saints book looks fun!
Nicole Mezquita says
I would love to give the miraculous medal
Such good ideas! The drinking with the saints book sounds like good Catholic fun!
Of course I’m tempted to get my husband the chocolate but we both know it would really be for me!
This is a great list! I love it!
Once again you’ve got so many awesome ideas here. I really like the visor clip!
Caitlyn Anderson says
This is a great list!! Very helpful. This is our second ever Christmas together, and the first year that we are doing stockings! Last year we went to my parents’ house (where my younger, still don’t know the secret of Santa siblings live) so stockings were all taken care of for us. I have had a really hard time coming up with small, meaningful gifts for my husband, but this list has sparked some inspiration! I need to find a Miraculous Medal for him, one that won’t interfere with his work (he’s US Sailor, and they have uniform regulations).
I would love to get a copy of A Sinner’s Guide to Holy Happy Hour!! My husband and I both just turned 21 this year (his birthday is in July, mine in November) so we are just starting to experiment with alcohol. We really have no idea what we are doing, and my husband is always looking up ideas for different stuff to try, so this would be perfect!!!
Awesome – so glad the list helped and has given you some ideas 🙂 Happy Belated Birthday!! 🙂
Sarah Mason says
Great list! I think I like the masculine rosary the best.
Jennifer Wilson says
The Lifeboat coffee would be great for my husband who is always drinking coffee! 🙂
Victoria Bettis says
These are all fabulous finds!! I’d give my family (husband and 3 sons) Scattergories, it would even qualify as a gift for me as I’m always on the look out for things to gently nudge the faith and not necessarily feel like I’m wacking them over the head with lessons.
The small medal would be universal for everyone. A gentle reminder easy to carry in a pocket or wallet where it could send a consistent reminder of a greater love.
My dad, the rosary would be a grand slam. He’s an old school man and this would qualify as ‘manly!’
For me, no brainer the chocolates and coffee would rock my world and they do god for the world! I’d share with my Christ sisters!
Your work is wonderful, enjoy Advent and the wonder of the season.
Thank you Victoria! Have a Blessed Advent!!
The black rosary is really nice, my husband would love that.
How can you say no to chocolate?!?! 🙂
I’ve been thinking of getting drinking with the saints for someone this Christmas! Maybe I should make it St. Nicholas so we can benefit from it sooner. 😉
Haha! Great idea!! Cheers 😉
Love that Lifeboat Coffee gives back!
the Prayer Cross visor clip would make a great stocking stuffer!
Jeanine @MommyEntourage says
My heart is in my stomach when it comes to chocolate – that is my fave!
I would love to gift the chocolates and coffee!
Really like that Saint book!
colleen kennedy says

Courtney F. says
The masculine rosary is so nice.
Denise Morris says
My hubby has been eying the masculine rosary on their website. I would love to be able to give that to him. He will be celebrating his first year as a deacon.
Joe Sales says
I would like the Saint Michael Chaplet from Rugged Rosaries.
Those chocolates look delicious! 🙂
Allison Gingras says
Drinking with the Saints is one of my FAVORITE books!! I was blessed to interview author, Michael Foley on my radio show, A Seeking Heart on Breadbox Meda. He was funny and made me love the book even more!! GREAT Suggestions!!
Thank you Allison! I think it is so cool that you have a radio show! I would love to do that 🙂
My husband would love the coffee and chocolate! 🙂
Ruth Anne says
St Michael chaplet. He’s been my husband’s “go-to” saint for… well, since I’ve known him 🙂
He’s a great saint to go to 🙂
Margaret Mayfield says
So glad you like them 🙂
These are wonderful ideas, thank you!!
Laura Soto says
Definitely love the scattegories game!! I think my husband would too!

Chocolate, coffee and Scattergories sound like the makings for a fun night in!
