Confirmation gift (and other items along the way...)


My god daughter and I have our first Confirmation Candidate/ Sponsor event in a week or so - just a general meeting about the program. I plan to take her out for dinner after the meeting. :)

While my own children have been confirmed, I have never been a sponsor. What kinds of things make good Confirmation gifts, as well as little things I could give her along the way? (Of course, spending time together is more important than material things.)

She comes from a large, well formed Catholic family.


If she likes to read - how about a Catholic Devotional Book or something by a contemporary Catholic author?? Or if she wears jewelry, maybe a cross or crucifix necklace or maybe a Saint medal. The Miraculous Medal comes in many pretty designs.

I would assume she might already have a Rosary, but there's nothing wrong with having more than one - maybe a Rosary with an icon of the Holy Spirit Dove as the centerpiece??

I still carry a pocket token with a beautiful spirit verse inscribed, that was a gift upon my Confirmation from a fellow parishioner.

Hope you have great luck finding something :)
