This past May, we had a very busy month, between Mother's Day, First Confession, First Communion and a Confirmation as well as a visit from my mom, we were as busy as bees. Finding the right gift for my boys was really important for me because I wanted something that when they looked at it it would capture that moment, that very special day when they received this Sacrament. For my eldest that was simpler than for my First Communicant so I was very happy to review this First Communion Music Box for Catholic Family Gifts dot com. As you can see it is very beautiful but what you can't tell is the great quality this music box is. I was very impressed with it and my son was delighted to have a little "hiding place" for important items he wants to keep safe. The fact that it plays the "Ave Maria" was also another reason I loved this gift for him.
Here is the item description from their website:
Keep memories for a lifetime in this music box from the renowned Cottage Garden collection. A timeless, versatile, quality gift featuring:
