What do you get a newly ordained member of the clergy? We suggest the following gift ideas for clergy celebrating ordinations or anniversaries (or any other event)! While clergy shirts or vestments may seem like a good idea, clothing is a very personal choice and many priests may prefer to puchase their own clergy shirts and clerical collars. A chasuble or alb would probably be best avoided as local conditions may dictate what the clergy wear. That heavy wool chasuble that seemed perfect for Northern Wisconsin, might not be enjoyed if the pastor finds himself moving to South Florida. We suggest getting your favorite clergyman something they will use in their ministry for a long, long time. Pyxs make excellent clergy gifts because they are small and easily carried. Pyx's come in a variety of sizes, types and host capacities with prices range from around $40 to $250 and up. Oil stocks are another favorite as these are small and easily carried. If you want a clergy gift that combines several elements, a liturgical set makes a great clergy gift. Liturgical sets contain an oil stock, pyx, holy water sprinkler and a stole. With these items, the clergy can perform the sacraments when away from church. Mass kits are a popular gift for the clergy for people looking to spend from $400 to $1500. Many priests and clergy appreciate having their own chalice. You can spend around $350 to $750 for a really nice, 24k gold plated chalice, or if you are so inclined, up to four or five thousand for a gold-plated, hand made sterling silver chalice. Any of the metal items can be engraved, but this takes time so plan accordingly. Also, keep in mind the denominational requirements of the clergy. You would not want to get a Baptist pastor a mass kit or a Catholic priest a set of hip-waders for the baptism pool. We are happy to provide guidance on what gifts are appropriate for the various denominations. Finally, if you just can't decide what gift to get a newly ordained clergy person or to celebrate a clergy anniversary, there is always the time honored gift certificate. Trust us, members of the clergy love getting a gift certificate so they can purchase the items they really need. We have been helping select gifts for clergy for over thirty years and would be glad to assist you in finding the perfect gift for your favorite clergy or answering questions. Call us!
