It's Etsy Saturday.
My middle child is going to have his First Holy Communion this year and I am so excited! I think it is extra special for me because it has been only 4 years since I joined the Catholic Church and took part in these Blessed Sacraments. And I so want my excitement to spill over onto my children.
I have already started scouting out some unique gifts on Etsy.
I have reviewed this Etsy seller before. Saintly Silver has the most wonderful little felt softie dolls and what makes these extra special is that you can personalize the hair color and cut, and the skin and eye color.
Two years ago for my oldest son's First Reconciliation I bought him this cool stamped copper necklace from Bracelets By Linda. He still loves to wear it and it has held up excellently.
On the day of First Communion we gave our son a nice rosary in this beautiful Walnut box from Forever Etchings. You can also have it personalized with the date. It's such a special keepsake.
Not having been raised as a Catholic, I had no idea what a big to-do First Communion was. You need to have a party and a cake and invite anyone with the word "parent" in their names, grandparent, great grandparent, God parent... I really like the look of these invites from Delightfully Noted. They can be used for Baptism or First Communion. I am not a fan of flowery frilly stuff, so these are perfect.
While it would be simpler, I really don't want to get my second son the exact same things we bought for our first son. I think this hand stamped necklace from K Cannucciari has some similarities to the first but still unique and masculine.
My husband and I had a heck of a time picking out a rosary. I thought most of them looked really girly. Both of my boys really enjoy going to rosary club so I want them to have a rosary to take with them each week that they really like and feel a connection to. I recently came across these two which I think most boys would appreciate. (Apparently, I really like the word "really")
The first is from Personalized Rosary and done in a baseball theme which can also include the child's name.
This second rosary is one I know my J would go crazy for. It's made by Memento Moose and has my son's favorite colors and made with one of his favorite toys, LEGOS!
Thanks for visiting Fakin It. May God Bless you always.
