First Communion Gift Ideas

Most first communion gifts will be religious in nature. A cross, a rosary, and a prayer bible are all typical and appropriate gifts. A card that accompanies a monetary gift is also acceptable for First Holy Communions. Nonreligious gifts are just as common as religious ones. Generally, toys and clothes that one might give for a birthday will be avoided. Instead, gifts like stationery sets, accessories, and trinkets with sentimental value are preferred. For example, a young lady might appreciate an inscribed jewelry box, while a young man might enjoy a fancy watch.

First Communion Reply Cards


Since First communion invitations are considered to be sent for a formal occasion, it is proper and customary to include RSVP cards with a stamped reply envelope. Even for semi-formal receptions, including reply cards with your invitation is extremely common. Your RSVP cards and envelopes can easily be customized, and pre-printed with your address on the RSVP return envelope to send with your first communion invitations. This will save you a lot of time and provide formal, high-quality invitations and reply cards for this important event. We offer free return envelope printing on personalized RSVP card orders!

The RSVP card should include a line for the respondent to write in their name and address. A "reply by" date is usually included to entice recipients to reply as soon as possible. If meal selections are applicable for your event, they can also be included on the reply card so that your guests can make their individual selections.

Reply Card Sample Wording

RSVP cards are much smaller than invitations, and should not include an excess of wording. Here is a traditional sample wording used for all different events, not just First Holy Communions.
