gift ideas for a boy 1st Holy communion

Ok my nephew is taking his first Holy Communion tomorrow and I need to get him a gift. We try to only spend about 25-30 bucks. My SIL and BIL are REALLY bad with money so cash is out...even though thats what SIL suggested I give. I don't want him cash only to piss it away on crap that he will be bored with in 2 weeks. I don't want to do a Bible or something like that because I am sure everyone will do that....any ideas?

  • I got my children a cross to hang over their bed, a personal bible, and a St. Christopher necklace.

  • You could do a savings bond. It's still money, but it's not cash, so they can't just go and spend it. Or, you could get him a nice cross for his room, or a new bible.

    Maybe even a gift card for some place you know he will love. Chucky Cheeses.. or something like that.

  • What about a personalized book? There are some that are bible related. My mom bought both of my kids personalized Noah's Ark books when they were born. They are really nice.

  • Maybe a book about saints that has his name in it or a medal with his patron saint on it. Or maybe a book about the Mass - something like "The Holy Eucharist" by Lovasik & Winkler. There's a DVD called "The Eucharist for Little Children" or something fun like the Veggie Tale Unlimited Silly Song Countdown (my son loves this).

  • oh, good idea sabrina... they have nice bible song and story books that come with cd's so they can sing along. My mom got one for the grandkids when they come over..

    It's called 100 bible stories 100 bible songs
    (comes with 2 cds... and is by Stephen Elkins) shouldn't be much more than twenty dollars at a book store. )
