Baptism Gift Guide

A baptism is a significant part of an infant’s life or an important turning point in an adult’s life. This admission into Christianity, validated by a ceremonial immersion in Holy water, is typically followed by a celebration with friends and family. This is the time to present the newly baptized with a gift, which should serve a special purpose in the religious life of the receiver.

Gift Ideas for Godson/Goddaughter

The godparents are the most important part of the ceremony – they hold the child being baptized, which represents their spiritual responsibility to the family. A traditional gift is getting the godchild their first bible. This gift is appropriate for either a goddaughter or godson, and will be deeply appreciated by the parents. A children’s edition with colorful illustrations will help the child connect with the teachings of their faith as they grow. If looking for something a little more unique, a Christening Day Personalized Glass Frame engraved with the child’s name and bible verses is a wonderful keepsake for the family.

However, if the godparents want something gender specific, a Freshwater Pearl Baptism Bracelet is a worthwhile investment for a goddaughter, while a Personalized Pewter Cross Necklace is a special gift for a godson. They both represent the ever-lasting spiritual commitment they have to the child.
