For many people, celebrating a child’s confirmation marks the moment when he or she passes across the threshold into life as an adult. Young men are often given a beautiful watch or valuable cufflinks to mark the occasion. Examples of an appropriate confirmation gift for young women, meanwhile, might include an armband with a pendant – featuring a guardian angel, for instance, a Mary Mother of God medal or just images of things she likes. Small pendants can then always be added to this to mark subsequent occasions. Over the years, this then becomes a beautiful charm bracelet – and the godparents are happy because they don’t need to agonise over what gifts to buy as the young person goes through life.
