First Communion Gift Ideas for Boys

First communion is a very important time in the life of a Catholic boy. He needs to understand the relationship of Jesus to himself and learn to participate in the ritual of the Church. A gift is usually given at this time to commemorate the moment. It can be a religious gift that will remind him of the day and be something he can use or keep, or it can be a non-religious gift that is very special and he will remember for his whole life. Either one can be personalized with his name and the date. First communion gifts for boys include bibles, rosaries, as well as money and gift certificates.


Other first communion gifts for boys include watches either with or without Christian symbols, wall posters proclaiming his faith and wallets. Jewelry includes saint’s medals bike clips, cuff links, tie and lapel pins as well as personalized identification bracelets. Money is a good gift because the boy can either save it for something later or buy something he really wants now. All of these gifts can be personalized. A tree he can plant and watch grow for years, gift certificate for his favorite shop or a subscription to a magazine he would not ordinarily get, are also good gifts for boys.
