A first communion is one of those rights of passages that you should make sure and pay attention to.
When it comes to some churches, this is the single more important thing, perhaps passed only by Baptism. When your child if going through their first ceremony, you will want to make sure that you preserve the occasion for all time. You also are going to want to give a present that commemorates the event. This isn’t one of those times when you give a PlayStation, or a new car.
The present for this particular event should be something that directly relates to the reason for the celebration. We’ve done you a solid, as far as trying to find the right items and given you a list of the top ten first Communion gifts.
Before you continue reading about the Communion Gifts there is a special announcement we would like to share with you. Catalogs.com has negotiated special medicare rates for our vibrant community of seniors. If you are over the age of 60, you can head over to our Seniors Health Section which is full of information about medicare. All you need is your zip code and a few minutes of your time to potentially save 100s of dollars on your medicare bills.
10. Personalized Communion Bible
One of the best gifts you can give a child when they are going through this important event is a personalized communion bible. These are generally especially geared towards younger kids who are looking to better understand their religion.
9. Prayer Cards
Giving your son or daughter, grandson or granddaughter or other member of the family these prayer cards is a way to show them they’re a real member of your church now. They will enjoy having something that they’ve seen “the adults” hand out for years.
8. Photo Albums
One of the best ways to commemorate the event is by taking a picture and having it framed. You can go with an actual frame, or a photo album or do something original — like a music box — with a photo of the event on the lid.
7. Patron Saint Medal
The Patron Saint medal is another one of those gifts that you can hold up as something only those who are taking or have taken their first communion get to wear. This can be another sign that they are officially part of the church and that having the medal is something to be proud of.
6. Rosary Jewelry
Another item that can be handed down as brand new, or as part of a family heirloom. Like many items on this list, giving a girl a rosary necklace means they have hit an important stage in their life, and that she has earned some “big girl” jewelry.
Just like a nice picture frame or album, a plaque is a nice way to commemorate the first communion at your home or with your family.
There isn’t a symbol that is more widely accepted as representing the Christian faith the way the elongated cross is recognized. Giving your child their very own cross, especially one that has a little style and elegance to it can be a great gift for after their first communion. You can even go with something like a pewter or silver cross, or one that also celebrates heritage like a decorative Celtic cross. Consider having it engraved with their name or a special message.
Who doesn’t like a nice piece of jewelry as a gift? Even the boy who is going through his first communion can enjoy getting a religious lapel pin or tie tack to go with his outfits. Whether talking about a necklace, a bracelet or a pin, you really can’t go wrong with a piece of jewelry as a first communion gift.
2. Communion Clothes
Everyone wants to look nice for the big events in their lives. You can make the child in yours happy by going out and getting them a nice outfit to wear to their initial communion. Communion dresses for girls are a cross between Sunday best and special occasion fancy.
