Baptism or Christening is a more formal ceremony than a baby shower, and in religious situations, marks the baby’s welcome into the religious community. It is accepted gift giving etiquette to present religious-theme gifts to the parents for this occasion. Typical baptism gifts for friends and family usually run to either the sentimental, or the useful-for-the-baby. Good sentimental baptism gift ideas are picture frames, keepsake books, inspirational figurines, or children’s religious stories. In this collection you will find Candles, Missals, Rosaries, Crib Medals, Certificates, Invitations, & other Baptism or Guardian Angel theme commemorative gifts. We also offer bundled products as complete gift sets.

First Communion Season
First Holy Communion is the common name for a person’s first reception of the sacrament of the Eucharist. Roman Catholics recognize the importance of this event as the Eucharist is the central focus of the sacramental life of the Catholic Church. First Communion is traditionally also a festive occasion for families of the First Communicant. Traditions surrounding First Communion usually include large family gatherings and parties to celebrate the event. Special clothing is usually worn. The clothing is often white to symbolize purity. Girls often wear fancy dresses and a veil attached to a headdress, as well as white gloves (long or short).

Quinceañeras | Sweet 15th
Today’s ceremonies embrace religious traditions, and the virtues of family and social responsibility. The custom is a celebration of the young girl (la Quinceañera), and a recognition of her journey from childhood to maturity. The celebration highlights God, family, friends, music, food, and dance. In the Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central and South American traditions, the custom can be referred to as a Quince (XV) Años, a Quinces, or a Quinceañera. The celebration traditionally begins with a religious ceremony. A reception is held in the home or a banquet hall. The festivities include food and music, and in most, a choreographed waltz or dance performed by the Quinceañera and her court. The Quinceanera traditionally wears a ball gown, with her court usually dressed in gowns and tuxedos. Guests usually receive small tokens, cápias and cerámicas (keepsakes), to commemorate the celebration. We offer several of those gifts! Including Candles, Missals, Rosaries, Keepsakes, Invitations, Remembrances, Greeting Cards, and other Quinceanera/Sweet 15th gifts.
