First Communion gift?

We just got invited to witness my cousin's First Communion, and her family is having a small party afterwards.  I'm so excited to go, since we haven't seen them since Christmas!  I'm a bit stuck on what to give her as a gift though.  Her aunts and grandparents have all the typical religious gifts covered, plus her school already gave her a Children's Bible, so my husband and I would prefer to give something different. 

My husband's go to gift is cash, but I thought a 7 year old might want something more tangible too. (Plus her mom saves cash gifts for the college fund).  I was thinking maybe a pearl bracelet?  She was one of my flowergirls at our wedding in Oct, and I almost got them pearl bracelets with their initials on them.  (Instead I went with bears from build a bear).  Would that be an appropriate gift? Any other ideas?

    I think a pearl bracelet is a nice gift. Can you get the kind that you can add to on special occasions.

    Your H's idea of cash is good but i understand wanting something more personal.

    I'd suggest a rosary but 7 is too young to really appreciate it.  Perhaps Confirmation is a better time for that.

    What about a small jewelry box with her name engraved on it?  That's what I gave my niece two years ago and she keeps in on her dresser.

    Maybe a lovely cross to hang on the wall, something with her name and ate on it?
