A first holy communion is a pretty important time for any youngster.
And if you’ve been invited to join the family to witness the first reception of the sacrament of the Eucharist, you’ll want to give something special to mark the occasion.
But, of course, searching for a meaningful and unique gift for a religious occasion is easier said than done and it’s easy to get stuck in a seemingly never-ending search for something you feel proud to give.
So, to save you the anguish of going round in circles, we’ve put together our top five communion gifts just for you.
And what’s more, each gift is personalised so you can add that unique touch and make a gift they won’t forget.
Did you know that traditionally the communicant would receive gift such as rosaries, prayer books, religious statues and other items relating to the Catholic Church?
