Baptismal Gifst for Babies

There are many baptismal gifts for babies that are appropriate for both the occasion and the season in which they are needed.  Easter is a time of renewal, and many parents feel that this is the best time to officially bless their babies and introduce them to their church family.  Of course, most children do not realize the extent of what is happening, but the church community involved will rejoice in the sharing of new life and a new member to their spiritual family.  Because it is a time of celebration, there will be much gift giving to commemorate the occasion and capture the emotions and memories that will surely overflow.

Simple baptismal gifts for babies include obvious things like rosaries and bibles.  These can be both figurative representation of the chaste and humble life the child should live, but can also be practical tools for exercising their faith as they grow older.  Children’s bibles are great because they often feature pictorial records of the stories of the gospel, which is usually much easier to understand than the traditional language of the Bible.  As Catholics, the New American version of the bible is usually the standard, but for picture bibles, there really are no restrictions.

There is always a great deal of flash photography at christenings, so customized picture frames also make appropriate baptismal gifts for babies.  These may be homemade and handmade by someone skilled in embroidery or craft construction or they might be designed and purchased at a retailer who specializes in customized gifts for special occasions.  No matter what ideas you might have for framing the many pictures that will be taken at this blessed event, you can be sure to find many options in this category with even the most minimal of investigation.

Although the process involves the dunking of a baby into a pool of water, good baptismal gifts for babies often include clothing too.  Robes, pajamas, shawls, blankets, booties, bonnets, and even towels can be practical offerings on the day of the event.  Not only can these items be used on that day, they are adorable reminders years later, and will provide laughs, tears, and create many more memories over the course of a lifetime.  They make a great beginning to a Catholic scrapbook, as there are many more sacraments to receive, such as First Eucharist, Confirmation, and Marriage.  This can ensure a long, healthy, and happy life in faith.

Customized baptismal gifts for babies are best found online.  Even if you are able to find an appropriate gift at a retailer near you, they will still likely have to special order your customized request, which could take a few days for labor and shipping.  You can avoid these extra steps, though, by filling your entire order online.  Not only is this more efficient, but it is likely that any online catalog will be far more extensive than what you might find at a traditional store.  This means more variety and better value, with the convenience of shopping from the comfort of your own home.
