First Communion Gift Ideas for Girls

The first communion in the life of a Catholic girl will be remembered by her, her parents and god parents for a lifetime. The first time she participates in the rite of the Holy Eucharist is sacred and it is traditional to give her a gift as a commemorative keepsake. First communion gifts for girls include jewelry, bibles and rosaries as well as non-religious items such as clothing, money and gift certificates. If you are planning to give her a gift, make sure it is something she really wants. It will have a greater impact and add strength to the special day.

 

Jewelry is the most common gift and possibly the most appreciated. It is something that can possibly be worn all her life and if it is good quality can be passed down to her daughter, niece or god daughter. Religious jewelry includes thousands of cross pendants online that are, solid gold, sterling silver, gold plated, pewter and platinum or stainless steel. They are smooth, shiny Latin crosses and complicated filigree Celtic crosses or trefoil crosses.  Some have precious or semi-precious stones and some are simple gold plated tiny crosses. First communion gifts for girls also include saint’s medal pendants, charms for bracelets and earrings. They can also be as precious or inexpensive as you want. No matter what the cost the meaning is the same.

 

Non-religious jewelry is also a good gift. Pearls are traditional because they are white, and any pearl item will be appropriate. Matching pearl drop necklace and earrings, a simple strand of pearls, a pearl bracelet or bangle even a pearl ring would all be welcomed. Simple motifs that have meaning but are not necessarily religious include a dove, angel or even her zodiac sign that could be a pendant or bracelet. First communion gifts for girls could also include her birthstone in a ring or pendant

 

Other first communion gifts for girls include religious keepsakes. Figurines of praying angels with special verses inscribed, picture frames with verses on one side and her picture on the other, rag dolls wearing first communion dresses and teddy bears with chalice shirts. One rag doll online can be personalized to include color of hair, eyes and skin with the name, date and a personal message embroidered on it’s clothes. The faces are hand embroidered and smiling but each one is different. They are machine washable and adhere to the highest standards for toys.

 

First communion gifts for girls also include money. This may seem very impersonal and a little too easy, but it may also be the perfect choice. She may be saving for something special or have an idea of exactly what she wants. With money you can’t go wrong because she will make it right. Whatever you choose for your daughter, granddaughter, god daughter, niece or friend it will mark a special time in her life and she will want to keep it for ever. The occasion is solemn but happy. The Church will take care of the solemn part, you can add to the happy part.
