My little neighbor will be celebrating her First Communion. I am trying to come up with a gift. Her family will of course, give her things like a Bible, Cross, Rosary and such. I taught her and her mother how to bake and decorate cookies. So I thought I might give her some cutters like these:

My DH is concerned that these would not be considered appropriate gifts for the occasion. What do you guys think?

I'll also be making cookies for the event. I have:
Any other ideas?

Those cutters are nice, but do you think she'd have an opportunity to use them much after her communion? Why not just give her a good basic set, or even a bumper Wilton pack of every-occasion cutters? You could combine it with a nice rolling pin and apron... not very religious though I guess...but useful!

The basic set is a really good thought, but she already has most everything she needs. I gave her a few things and she and her mom have picked up the rest.

I bought her a pink silicone pin for her birthday. I always get her cutters for Christmas, Valentine's Day, etc. My thought was that they could be used for her sibling's and other family member's religious events, too. Not to mention Easter and Christmas.

My concern was if they'd be considered an "odd" gift. I mean, if it's o.k. to serve the cookies at a celebration, surely it'd be o.k. to give the cutters. Yes? icon_confused.gif
