When someone is baptized as a child, his or her parents and godparents make promises on the child’s behalf.
A confirmation church service is that person’s chance to confirm the promises that were made.
Even if you’re not religious yourself, you’re sure to want to celebrate a family member’s confirmation. But you may be struggling to know what makes an appropriate gift for a confirmation.
Well, there are actually all kinds of suitable gifts you could give to your loved one. Here are just six gift ideas that you’ll want to consider.
1. A Heart-shaped Rosary Dish
At House of Joppa, you’ll find a wonderful collection of confirmation gifts to choose from.
If your family member is Catholic, one item you may want to consider from House of Joppa is a heart rosary dish.
The beautiful handmade heart-shaped rosary dishes are ideal for displaying rosaries or sacramentals. Each dish is decorated with lace to create unique and intricate patterns.
The heart design is ideal for showing your family member that the gift comes with a lot of love. It will also serve as a constant reminder of the person’s loving commitment to god.
2. A Decorative Cross
A decorative cross is always a good choice for a confirmation gift.
Again, if your family member is a Catholic, consider buying a cross from the House of Joppa. Its Holy Trinity Crucifix is carved in intricate detail from solid wood and features the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
It’s ideal for hanging on the wall to serve as a reminder of the person’s devotion to Christianity.
Though, even if your loved one isn’t Catholic, a decorative cross will make an ideal gift.
3. A Cross Necklace
While decorative crosses are great for placing on walls, you might like to consider giving your family member a cross necklace so that he or she can keep the symbol of Christianity close to his or her body at all times.
You can find necklaces featuring crosses that are made from a variety of materials, such as gold, silver, and platinum.
4. A Book That Celebrates God

So, take a look at the different books available to find one that will make the perfect present for a confirmation.
You could even give your loved one a Holy Bible. While he or she is sure to already own a Bible, there are various decorative and illustrated editions available that will make a special gift.
5. An Engraved Token
You might like to buy your loved one a token that you engrave with his or her name and the date of his or her confirmation to act as a constant reminder of the confirmation service and your family member’s commitment to Christianity.
Your loved one would have the opportunity to keep the token with him or her, in a pocket, wallet, or purse, at all times. Alternatively, it can be kept at home, perhaps on a bedside cabinet.
6. An Engraved Pen
There are other items that you could buy and engrave with special meanings.
For instance, consider a stylish pen that is engraved with a scripture text, such as “For the word of the Lord is right and true” or “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above.”
