GIFT IDEAS FOR A PIGEON OF BEN (REDEMPTION OF THE FIRST BORN)

After a Jewish child is one month old, a ceremony is conducted which introduces the child to the community and bring the child before G-d.  In biblical times, an offering was also made with prayers for the well being of the child.  The ceremony may be called the Redemption of the First Born, but others in more recent times refer to it as a Pigeon of Ben, which is a combination of ceremony and festivities afterwards.  Because gifts are usually given for the Birth of the child or at the Bris, gifts do not need to be provided for this occasion - or the gifts are very small and inexpensive.  If the family has a reception back at their house later that evening, it would be appropriate to bring a little something like a fruit basket, cookie platter or a bottle of wine.
