First Communion is a major rite of passage in the Catholic Church. As one of the seven Sacraments, First Communion typically falls around the age of 7, when a child is deemed capable of reason and therefore able to appreciate and understand the miracle of the Eucharist. If you're not sure of an appropriate First Communion gift, you can't go wrong with a First Communion gift set. First Communion gift sets are pre-packaged and include a variety of traditional First Communion gifts. Other great First Communion gifts include crosses, jewelry, rosaries, prayer books, and Bibles.
