First Communion Rosaries: A Gift Giving Guide

First Communion is a very important time in childhood for a little boy or girl. It is traditional for friends and family members to give First Communion rosaries on this important day.

Choosing First Communion rosaries is a wonderful opportunity to provide a child with a lasting and spiritual reminder of this day. Shopping at the Catholic gift store can ensure that anyone, including those not of the Catholic faith, will select a rosary just right for a little boy or girl.

Styles of First Communion Rosaries

There are different styles of rosaries, also known as rosary beads, to choose from. The longer traditional options feature a crucifix with five sets of 10 beads grouped along the length.

Within the crucifix and centerpiece there are many different styles and variations. For children it is common to have a Guardian Angel as an element in the design as well as a crucifix on the rosary. It is also common to give first communion rosaries with rosary boxes. Rosary boxes can be engraved to personalize the gift for the child.

Engraving or personalization of a charm on the bracelet or the rosary is also an option. A simple monogram and the date of the First Communion is sure to make this a treasured gift.

Options to Consider

While for boys traditional rosary beads are a very popular gift, girls have the option of receiving a rosary bracelet for First Communion instead of rosary beads. All gifts are designed to help the young person focus on praying by incorporating prayer on the rosary into their daily life.

When choosing the color and style of the rosary it is helpful to consider favorite colors, birthstones, unique types of color combinations and bead styles. For women and girls, heart shaped beads can provide a different look while for boys, faceted glass beads or wood beads are a popular option.
