Shopping for First Communion gifts on the internet can be a drag. Sure, you can find a plethora of trinkety religious artifacts, cheesy non-personalized knickknacks, and the like. You can also easily whip out your checkbook and write out a money gift. But where is the fun in that? Instead, consider giving a really fun and unique gift that the special young man or woman in your life can treasure (or be embarrassed by!) for the rest of their lives: a personalized magazine cover.
At first blush, it doesn’t seem like personalized magazine covers would make great First Communion gifts. But remember what First Communion is all about – defining one’s personal relationship with God. A customized magazine cover offers the gift giver a chance to reflect the child’s personality in a fun, dynamic way.
If you get stuck choosing your cover’s theme, here are some ideas to go to town with. Spoof on teen glam magazines by casting the young man or woman of the day as the star of high fashion action. For sports fan, cast the communion taker as his or her favorite basketball, hockey, baseball, or football hero in a “Sports Illustrated-esque” magazine mock-up. You can also include messages from friends and family in the form of “headlines”, funny tidbits about the day, religious poems, family photos, or other special remembrances.
Unlike other First Communion gifts, your magazine cover will likely live on for decades as a fun and ebullient reminder – not only of the day in all its meaningful religious undertones – but also as a snapshot of a very special time of change in the life of someone you care about.
