It’s now nearing the end of March, and with Easter just under a month away, it means that First Communion season will be upon many people very soon. This makes it the perfect time to start shopping for friends and family members who will be celebrating this exciting Sacrament soon!
I’m so excited this year to be able to share some great gift ideas from small business owners. I’ll briefly introduce you to ten wonderful sources for First Communion gifts (or just to go shopping for fun or other gifts).
Lady in Blue
Lady in Blue carries chapel veils, mantillas, and handmade Catholic goods. I love the variety of items that are offered in this Etsy shop. They make great gifts from the traditional to the more contemporary.
PMM Designs specializes in unique custom and personalized rosaries (even one specifically for First Communion!) for all special occasions. She also offers pro-life awareness rosaries, chaplets, and rosary place markers.
Gail Giron Designs
Gail Giron Designs features a rosaries and unique Catholic jewelry. I was especially taken by the many religious necklaces that would end up being well loved by any First Communion girl. (Or, you know, I wouldn’t mind if you bought me this one.)
Arma Dei is a business that makes wonderful materials for enriching a child’s Catholic faith, as well as to encourage Catholic family life. One gift, in particular, that might be perfect as a First Communion gift is the new book/journal Hand in Hand with Jesus (scroll down on the page to find it).
Veils by Lily
Veils by Lily has a wonderful variety of mantilla-style chapel veils. Just looking at her site makes me smile at the thought of what a wonderful, traditional First Communion gift these would make. Lily also has a section of First Communion veils that would look lovely for a girl’s special day.
Heart Bead Designs
Heart Bead Designs features handmade rosaries and jewelry (including some wonderful religious jewelry). All of Susan’s pieces are unique/limited edition.
Garden of Francis
Garden of Francis offers an eclectic variety of items for the home, educational materials (especially Montessori), modest clothing (custom made), and Jesse Tree ornament sets. If you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, Jessica also offers gift certificates!
Pepita Bananas has a unique name (you can read how they came up with it on their site), and super cute hair bows that celebrate Catholicism – from a special bow just for First Communion to bows with saint medals.
Emily Rose @Home
Emily Rose @Home is a sold through consultants for home shows and online sales. The company sells clothing, furniture, and accessories for 18″ dolls. One item of special interest to those buying gifts for First Communion gifts might be the First Communion dress that is available at the bottom of this page.
Dustbin Cards offers gorgeous handmade cards, and what gift is complete without a card? I know that we rarely hang on to cards at our house, but we still have the First Communion cards that our boys received. So, why not give a special card for an occasion when people often save them?
Are you just blown away by all of the amazing talent? I was so impressed by the small businesses that I was able to work with on this guide. Please consider supporting small, owner-operated businesses this year when buying First Communion gifts (or just shopping).
Disclosure: This post was sponsored by the businesses that are featured in the guide. All opinions and words are my own. I strongly believe in supporting these businesses and others like them.
