Default Confirmation gift for son

Hi ,new member here! Glad to have found this website! I have a question about Catholic confirmation gift giving. I am a Protestant and my husband is a non-practicing Catholic. His son, my step-son, is going to be confirmed over Easter in the Catholic church. I am wondering what the parent/step-parent should get their son (he is 22 years old) for his confirmation. What is appropriate? We are very close as a family even though we do not practice his religion. Any suggestions out there? Thanks, Tamera

Hello Tamera there are some new Catholic Bibles out there....a bible is a life long gift that one can always add a rememberance of Confirmation message to as a keepsake.
Any good Catholic book store will have the newer answer bibles. older leather covered ones and other Confirmation gifts as well etc.
.
One bible especially for younger folks is...

God Bless You,
Shalom,
Catherine

Thank you so much, Catherine. You have been a tremendous help to me! I know that the Bible that my own parents gave me as a baptismal gift meant a lot to me and I still have it to this day. Thank you! Tamera

You could get him a really nice religious medal. Does he have a particular saint that he especially likes? What kind of work does he do? There is a patron saint for just about everything.

If he has not already received a bible and catechism from his Church those are the first choices

Catholic youth Bible from Saint Mary's Press is a good choice, either NAB or NRSV translation, about $28 more for hardcover.

Catholic Catechism for Adults from the USCCB website, $25 is a great catechism that will be useful all through life

Daily Roman Missal (about $40-50) or a subscription to Magnificat Magazine ($39/year) until the new revisions of the missal are available is what I tell parents for a first choice.

Shorter Christian Prayer $15-18 depending on binding, good start on the Liturgy of the Hours
