Confirmation gifts

Sometime between the ages of 11 and 16 a child in the Christian faith has a confirmation, which is a rite of initiation into his or her family church. This happens for infants at the time they are baptized in the Eastern Church and in the Western Church it happens when they are older and become a bit knowledgeable about their religion. Usually, the child is given gifts from his parents, godparents, grandparents and other family members. Confirmation gifts may be of a religious nature or not but they should commemorate the day and be something the child will have as a keepsake all his or her life.

Rosaries, crucifixes, books and Bibles are often given as . Also, patron saint medals as pendants, earrings and charms as well as religious statues, wall crosses, gift baskets and cards are all religious gifts that can be given on this day. There are also confirmation editions of teddy bears, pen sets, watches and keepsake boxes that children will like. Some gifts can be personalized including framed poems, wall crosses with the Lord’s Prayer and jewelry that can be engraved. A rugged silver pendant with the 23rd Psalm engraved on it will be liked by boys and a delicate bracelet with the ten virtues on each link will be appreciated by girls.

The most popular religious confirmation gifts include rosaries. There are many different types of rosaries; some are with colorful wooden beads especially for children. There are pearl like beads, colored glass beads and glow in the dark rosaries that are fun for children and something rustic for boys are wooden beads and heavy metal crucifixes that look trendy. The keepsake boxes come in glass or wood as well as ceramic and plastic and there are wall hangings of prayers and psalms. Even snow globes and music boxes have religious themes for this occasion.

Some religious confirmation gifts are fun, including T-shires and hoodies with saint’s names, posters, stickers, cut-outs and figurines of children praying. The figurines are like cartoon characters and more childlike than realistic. It’s nice for a child receiving gifts for confirmation to be able to give gifts to their godparents. There are baseball caps, mouse pads, tote bags, aprons and mugs that say godmothers/fathers rock! Key chains and photo frames personalized with the special date are also welcome.

Some examples of non-religious confirmation gifts are money, in cash or gift certificate for his or her favorite store, jewelry with birth stones or zodiac signs, a bicycle, skate board, magazine subscription, board games and lots of craft ideas for the children to have fun and make something they like. In fact, any gift you give on that day need only make the child happy. They will remember it their whole life as part of the day they were confirmed into the Church. Since the whole family is part of this occasion, it is nice to have a party and give everyone a small memento to enhance the feeling of unity around the child beginning his or her religious life.
