There are reasons why personalized gifts matter, and there are reasons why gifts given in recognition of first holy communions matter, and then there are the reasons that Personalized First Communion Gifts are so significant. It comes down to a number of factors regarding the individual significance of the gift offered as well as the importance of the event in a young person’s life.
A First Holy Communion is an extremely special time. It is the first time that a child is grown enough to be truly aware of his or her acceptance into the church and communion. It is the first truly conscious step that most individuals take towards a life lived in faith. While that is not to downplay the importance of other sacraments, events like baptism are performed before the child can make a choice, and Communion is the first time the child can be making the decision unimpeded, on his or her own. Other sacraments to follow, like Confirmation and weddings, are no less significant, but in most instances, they could not occur without a first holy communion to precede them.
A First Holy Communion is the first step in a young life towards a fulfilling relationship with church and community, and it all starts there. Even though at the time some might be too young to really grasp the significance that comes with the occasion, it can still be felt. It is only in the years that follow that the true importance of the occurrence can take root in the heart and mind. That is one of the main reasons why gifts given in recognition and celebration of First Holy Communions are so significant. Through the power of reflection, the young mind will solidify the gravity of the event, and it is an event that cannot be underestimated or understated. These are some of the reasons why we give such thoughtful gifts at First Holy Communions. We try to give special gifts that will be remembered and will increase in value as time goes by.
Then there is the importance of personalized gifts in general. Though a gift can be personalized in ways other than by explicit engraving or customizing, making a gift unique to the recipient in such ways brings with it its own level of charm. For example, giving a fly rod to a fly fisherman or a new set of tools to a gardener brings a level of personal significance with it on its own. However, these types of things could be given to anyone with a similar hobby; a personalized gift that is customized or engraved brings with it additional weight and importance and is not something to be taken lightly.
Of course, pairing the two results in gifts that not only increase in sentimental value over time but will hold a special significance for the recipient throughout their life. Though it might not be evident to young boys and girls at the time, these types of rare personalized First Holy Communion gifts are the types of gifts that are never forgotten. Even if they are given a place of honor in a setup and are not consciously remembered every day, it will only be with an increased measure of fondness that they are given when they are consciously remembered.
