My grand niece (boy that makes me feel old) is being confirmed this weekend...I need suggestions on a gift. I'm sure she's probably getting a bible from her god parents and I'm not sure if money or a gift card is appropriate...help.

What can I do next?

Money is always good too. :)

Hi A.,

I actually have 3 nephews who will be confirmed this month. At this age money or a gift card is appropriate. If giving a gift card I would say from a Book store such as Barnes and Noble. When they did their first communion then I chose to make the gift a more personal one. All of my sister-in-laws suggested money or a gift card as well. Although since it is your niece perhaps a nice cross necklace or bracelet would also be nice.

Congrats and I hope this information helps!
