First Communion

Whether you're celebrating your child, godchild, grandchild, niece or nephew, make their First Holy Communion a special day to remember by commemorating this sacred tradition with friends and family. A child's First Communion can take place at various ages depending on their religious beliefs. Most Roman Catholics, for example, first receive the Eucharist when children reach the "age of reason" around second grade. As an important rite of passage and one of the three sacraments of initiation for Catholic children, First Holy Communion is often marked with a large family gathering and party. In many Protestant religions, children don't begin taking communion until they are adolescents.

No matter what age, 1st Communion is a big milestone in a child's faith journey, one that can be celebrated with First Communion cards and gifts. If you're shopping for First Communion gifts for boys, you may consider a recordable or personalized religious storybook, a prayer book, a rosary or other religious gifts. First Communion gifts for girls range from picture frames documenting the occasion (and her beautiful white First Communion dress), angel figurines and rosary bracelets.  Gift bags featuring cross icons will round out your thoughtfulness.
