My oldest daughter made her first holy communion last year and after asking for recommendations of local Long Island businesses from other parents, I decided to make a blog post featuring places to shop for your child’s first Holy Communion.
We love supporting local businesses so I prefer shopping at one of these local businesses over big box stores.
A HUGE thank you to Tiggywinks Boutique for all of your help, shopping for my daughter’s special occassion. My daughter said, “Yes to the Communion Dress” thanks to Donna and Janine and the rest of the sweet and helpful staff at Tiggy Winks in Blue Point. Their selection of dresses, accessories and shoes were wonderful. They were so sweet and made the process go so smooth, as well. We highly recommend them and are so excited that they even do the alterations at the store. A one stop shop for all you communion needs.
From their website: “We carry over 200 styles in our
communion dress line. Our dresses begin to arrive in November and can be ordered through February. “
Located at: 112 Main St. Sayville, NY 11782

Precious Moments always come to my mind when it comes to shopping for Communion Gifts. I remember receiving a good amount of Precious Moment Keepsakes when I made my First Holy Communion and still have them and when I look at them it brings such a smile to my face. If you are looking for some great Precious Moment Keepsakes , I suggest the Precious Moment Little Book of Prayers , Precious Moments “Blessings On Your First Holy Communion” Boy Frame , and the Precious Moments, Blessings On Your First Holy Communion, Girl
Our day was beautiful and we wish your child the best and a day filled with blessings on their Holy Communion!
