Traditional gifts are incredible and we do not to believe they should be thrown away!
Give that Bible, the Rosary, that prayer book and whatever family tradition you hold dear – these are truly beautiful gifts and treasures.
But let’s not stop there with giving gifts that will encourage prayer and a daily effort to know Jesus better and on a more intimate level.
This post is not meant to say “out with the old” but to help those who know their son or Godson, or nephew, etc. will already be getting those traditional gifts and want to give a gift that will nourish the young soul’s faith with their gift.

A Chalice is a great First Holy Communion Gift
Why a chalice?
This idea has been shared in many Facebook group discussions this year. The idea is to give a young man a chalice for a First Holy Communion gift and let him know you are praying for his vocation. If he is called to the priesthood, he can use this chalice at the first Mass he celebrates. If he is called to marriage, he can ask the presider to use that chalice at his wedding Mass.
