Baptism is an initiation, usually for children and babies, into the Christian religion. Different sects have different rituals, but they all involve water and are essential for membership in the church that administers the baptism. The effect and power of baptism is to save one from sin, death and evil and to become a believer in Christ. A gift given at this time in a person’s life is meant to commemorate their rebirth as a Christian. Usually baptism gifts are religious in nature and meant to last a lifetime.

 

Jewelry makes good baptism gifts, because it will last a lifetime and please a youngster as well as an older child. There are special bracelets and rosaries for boys and girls as well as wall crosses in silver, crystal or wood that is engraved with the person’s name, birth and baptism dates. It is also a good occasion to give a saint medal. Exactly the right one can be chosen that fits the babies name or family. These also come suitable for boys and girls.

 

For infants there are special clothes, invitations, bibs, shoes jewelry and blankets for the occasion. Any of these can be baptism gifts. Some other suggestions are, a religious themed quilt, cushion with babies name, angel figurines and painted frame for a photo of the event. All of these gifts can be personalized with the child’s name and date of birth. Engraved silver items like frames, spoons and rattles will be keepsakes when they grow up. You can also get original art painted with the venue of the baptism and the babies name and date.

 

Baptism gifts with inspirational quotes and spiritual expressions are also popular. There are picture frames, blankets, rosary gift sets, keepsake box and very cute Noah’s Ark gift baskets. These will all become treasured memories for the child his or her whole life. Plush animals are a favorite with very young children and there are soft lambs that say “Jesus loves me” on a ribbon and wind up to play that song. There are also lambs and bears that are dressed in christening gowns with their hands together in prayer. They have cross pendants and can be personalized too. A Bible especially for children with appealing illustrations can have the child’s name on the front.

 

Godparents want to give special baptism gifts because they are the closest to the child after the parents. This gives them a responsibility of the child’s religious education and spiritual growth.
