A very simple but important gift would be a copy of the Youcat
, the new youth version of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It is $10.68 right now on Amazon, or $9.18 for the Kindle version.
Medals or books about their Confirmation saint are always nice, but another option could be a movie! In recent years some more high-quality and sophisticated films about saints have been produced. Check out the following titles for some ideas: St. John Bosco: Mission to Love, Pope John Paul II, Maria Goretti, and Saint Rita
If your gift recipient has a Smartphone, what about getting her some Catholic apps? I am no expert in this category, but I did find some helpful links. Here are the 5 finalists in the About.com readers choice awards for best Catholic app, and here is a list of 13 essential Catholic apps. Or check out these reviews of rosary apps. This might be a great way to help a young Catholic integrate the faith more into her daily life.
For both guys and girls, wearing a cross or medal is a great way to show their faith. This
Small Crucifix on Chain – Sterling Silver on 18 inch chain is a classic piece that would work for either gender. It is $34.95 from The Catholic Company.
There is of course a ton of inspirational jewelry available for women, so I looked for a couple of items that are a little bit unique. I love this Miraculous Medal Rose Slide Locket for $18.00 on Etsy. My friend in college had a necklace similar to this, and I loved the unique way of presenting the Miraculous Medal.
Another lovely piece of jewelry is this Holy Spirit Tennis Bracelet from Catholic Child for $21.95. I like this because it could be a subtle reminder to a young woman of the presence of the Holy Spirit, even after the Confirmation celebration is long over.
