Communion Gift Ideas


The first occasion when a child receives the Host in a religious ceremony, is an important event in the religious life of a child. Traditionally Catholic children celebrate their First Communion at the age of six or seven. Protestants take their First Communion at an older age-typically between eleven and fourteen. Often several weeks of bible study and preparation precede the actual communion day. Though traditions vary, many mark this occasion with a small gathering of family members and close friends. Attendees express their congratulations with a special First Communion gift.

Frequently Asked Questions

I've been invited to a First Communion dinner party. Should I bring a gift?
Yes. An invitation to such an event is typically reserved for only very close family and friends, and a gift would be traditional.

Aside from those attending the First Communion celebration, who should purchase a gift for a First Communion?
Generally just close family members would give a gift to the communicant. Other friends might send a note of congratulations, but a gift is not traditional.
