Jewelry, such as necklaces and earrings with crosses, and reading materials are appropriate gifts for a Lutheran Church confirmation. The rite of confirmation marks the passage from childhood to an adult role within the church and the world.
Concordia Publishing House carries an assortment of books appropriate for confirmation gifts. One popular choice is "Time to Pray" by Elmer N. Witt. This book specifically targets prayers for confirmation-age young adults and addresses the problems they face daily. Another gift is a personalized confirmation memory book with a leather cover. A confirmation card that includes a contribution to a college fund is suitable as well.
