I love finding ways to feel God in my day, whether I’m going to work or cooking dinner. I make sure I’m connected to Him by listening to Bible stories, sermons, praying, and singing praise songs. All the apps I test are introduced into my everyday life so that I can feel their usability on a daily basis.

The first time we receive communion is a significant moment for every Christian. We even tend to mark the date in our calendars and memories because it serves as a meaningful milestone in our journey with God. For children especially, it’s always thrilling for them to walk down to the altar decked in white like Christ’s bride.

What better way to celebrate this than to give them a unique gift they’ll cherish forever?

There are a couple of things to consider before choosing a first communion gift.

Things like your relationship with the person and their tastes or preferences matter. However, it’s the thought that counts. 

So instead of gifting them gift cards or cash, you can browse this collection of unique items to help you show them that you’re proud of them, you’re thinking of them and you truly support their achievements.
