One of DH's closest friends was the first in their friend group to reproduce. We've been invited to first birthdays and baptisms, but this is a new one... Holy Communion.
Is this party thing... a thing? We're RSVPing yes because who doesn't like an excuse to socialize. We're invited to the Church for mass and a luncheon.
So... gifts? It's a 2nd grade girl (and she's a girly-girl too). What's appropriate? A gift certificate? Maybe a cross necklace? I don't remember having a party or gifts for any of my Sacraments (besides marriage, even though we didn't receive the Sacrament), so I'm rather puzzled.
Thanks for the help!
