Confirmation is one of seven sacraments within the Roman Catholic Church. Boys and girls normally attend religion classes in preparation to be confirmed as a mature adult of the Catholic faith, usually between age 12 and 14. Confirmation is concluded with a party in child's honour. Traditionally people give money as a gift for confirmation, but other gifts are acceptable as well.

Confirmation recipients are required to pick a patron saint. This makes a good theme for many presents. If you are a close family member, consider purchasing a medal with his patron saint on a gold or silver necklace. Inexpensive ideas associated with the patron saint include keychains and books about the saint.
Rosary beads are a traditional confirmation gift. Rosaries come in a variety of gift sets that include prayers of the patron saint and fancy gift boxes for storing the beads. Prices range from simple plastic beads to precious metals, birthstones or granite. The beads come in a variety of styles and colours to suit the recipient's personality.
Personalised items marking the celebration are good gifts. A plaque bearing the recipient's name and the date of the confirmation can be displayed for years. Personalised rosary beads, Bibles and decorative crosses are available at Catholic shops. Crosses and plaques come in a wide range of designs, colours and materials.
If the recipient is a fan of contemporary Christian music, tickets to hear his favourite band perform are a gift he will never forget. Many faith-based groups and musical acts appeal to younger audiences. Check local venues and ticketing agents to see whether his favourite band is coming to town soon. Tickets to a faith-based play or theatre production are also appreciated.
