Baptism is one of the most special times in a parent’s life. If a member of your family is baptizing their baby soon, you might want some inspiration for what to give them as a gift. Here are a few must-have baptism gifts to get you started.
- Piggy Bank
Give your new God-child a gift they can use for years—a piggy bank. Whether you opt to go with a sophisticated silver-plated coin jar or something fun and exciting like a bank in the shape of their favorite cartoon character, this is an excellent gift idea for both girls and boys.
Ideal for parents, a custom made charm can show how much you care about the newly baptized child. You can have the charm customized by your local jeweler or find one that accurately represents the parents and child just the way it is.
- Pearl Baby Bracelet
Perfect for newly baptized baby girls, a pearl baby bracelet can quickly become an heirloom item to last for generations. This gift can get expensive, however, so keep that in mind when you’re making your final decision.
- Heirloom Baptism Bowl
Engrave a baptism bowl with a particularly fitting scripture or a quote from your favorite poet along with the child’s name for a special gift they won’t forget. A traditional option for the particularly devoted loved one, a baptism bowl holds value beyond the baptism day.
- Gifts for the God Parents
Don’t forget about the God parents! If you’re not the mom, dad or God parent, then make it a point to give the God parents a gift they can cherish. Advice, a charm with the child’s name on it, or a painting all make an excellent option.
No matter the gift you choose, use our lovely gift bags to give the baby, parents or God parents a gift they’ll treasure for years to come.
