    Default First Communion Gift Ideas

    What do people normally give for gifts for a 1st communion. I have to buy something for a 7 year old boy.
    Any store recommendations?

    Is money acceptable?

    My son is making his First Communion soon, and he would be thrilled if he got money.

    Boys are harder but:
    -children's bible
    -chain with cross
    -you can also go to the catholic store on Springbank west of Wonderland. I am sure that they would have great ideas.

    Sorry, girls are easier with jewelry etc.

    Treasure your loved ones, in a blink of an eye they can be gone and there is no second chance to show them how much you loved them.

    We have 3 First Communion Celebrations this month (all are girls) and I wasn't sure what to get. I was looking for something different than just jewelery, etc. At the Creation Bookstore across from Superstore on Oxford they had books that were Devotions for Girls (they have them for boys too). I bought that for one of my nieces and for the other I bought a book called The Christian Girls Guide to Me. Both have activities/quizzes to do. I'm not sure that all kids that age would be into that stuff buy I think the kids I had to buy for would be!

    Going to one this weekend - I bought a cross for the wall with a biblical verse on it. Her mom is getting her a rosary. This child is special needs and cannot read so I did not want to get her a bible. For my son's, he received religious items from everyone but a friend of the family who bought him a toy helicopter (that is what most excited him as he got to play with it) He loves his cross that is hanging by his bed and his necklance and bible and all the other religious stuff too
