 First Communion Gift Ideas

 
Celebrating a child's First Holy Communion is a moment in personal history as well as a stepping up point in the child's religious growth in the Church. First Holy Communion gifts offer a unique way to celebrate the special event as well as create a memory the child can reflect on years after the fact. Granted, any family member can provide a greeting card with a basic monetary gift inside. But it isn't quite the same, and who remembers what they did with all those $5 and $10 gifts received as a kid? Instead, with a personalized gift, a child will always have something that is unique to him or her, reflecting on the special day.

The more traditional gifts often tend to be religion based and provide use as the child gets older. These usually include a personal Bible with the child's name imprinted on the cover, or a personalized rosary ($20 to $30). Additionally, various children's books that explain the Eucharist in a child's terms can be great gifts as well, explaining why the event is so important ($10 to $15). Finally, the first communion cross necklace is a standard many families choose to give to a child at first communion, providing a simply type of jewelry that can be worn for years afterwards ($20 to $150 depending on the metal involved).

A more personal approach can be an engraved photo frame, with an event photograph embedded in a frame with special wording about the event ($20 to $25). A number of frame choices are available from light wood to dark, with appropriate carved wording to match the desired importance of the day. For younger children toys with a religious theme also work well. Gifts that still translate to a young child's mind as a toy are often well accepted and kept for years until the child outgrows them.

By giving a personalized gift more than just a gift for a first holy communion, your present can help craft a special memory in the mind of a child that will likely last a lifetime.

First Holy Communion Dresses

 

A First Holy Communion is a special occasion for families and friends to celebrate a child taking communion for the first time. For girls, First Holy Communion dresses are typically white with lace. The latest dresses to mark the special event retain the classic style of First Holy Communion dresses. Most designs are traditional white. Some winter communion dresses are a richer ivory, while spring and summer communion dresses are a lighter or classic white. The same shades of white often found in wedding dresses are common in girl's communion dresses. While white is the most popular color choice for a communion dress, other variations include silver, pink, lavender and pastels.

 

Accenting First Holy Communion Dresses

 

Girl's dresses for communion are typically accented with a matching veil, tiara or other headdress. Sleeve lengths vary, from full long sleeved designs to short sleeve and sleeveless designs. Sleeveless designs are a popular choice since they allow for greater range of motion, a plus for younger girls lacking the patience to sit still. Additional accessories for a First Holy Communion dress include matching purses, seasonal flowers and gloves. Classic all-white arrangements are popular - although variations include red or pink roses or pink or white carnations. Hand-tied or handheld bouquets are also popular communion dress accessories this year. Unique accessories to further enhance a girl's communion dress include:

• Flower baskets with matching seasonal flowers

• Matching mini purses or handbags

• Matching lace or satin gloves
