Catholic Baptism Gifts

Catholicism is one of the most widespread religions in the world, and as such there are many Catholic baptism gift ideas.  Perhaps this is because baptism is one of the Sacraments and an important component of true Catholic faith.  Baptism is a necessary rite of passage for anyone who wants to grow in their relationship with God.  Although it is often performed when you are just a baby, it is still important because the flesh is the source of your sin.  Figuratively, your bathing in blessed waters cleanses your flesh of sin and lets you begin your life with a clean slate.

Since many baptisms are performed on babies, most people think of a very specific Catholic baptism gift designed for infants and toddlers.  The first of these are baptism blankets.  Because the process of baptism involves dunking your body into water, like a quick bath, you come out feeling wet and cold, so a baptism blanket, which is like a towel, is both functional and meaningful.  They will keep you warm and dry after you receive the blessing.  Since they are made of standard cloth, they are also easy to embroider with initials, names, or dates, which can commemorate the event.

For young adults who may be converting or just choosing to attend Catholic Church for  the first time, there are other Catholic baptism gift ideas that may be appropriate.  For instance, you might want to opt for something like a New American Bible instead of the more traditional blanket.  You can also engrave these holy books, which makes it a personal gift as well.  However, these are more functional for someone who wants to learn more about their faith and cultivate a relationship with God.  Having your own Bible allows you to take an active role in this development.

An older adult might appreciate something more practical and meaningful.  Patron saint medals are among the best Catholic baptism gift ideas that someone in their thirties and beyond might appreciate.  This is because there is a treasured history behind these pendants and it requires a great deal of consideration to match a patron saint medal to someone’s personality.  Each patron saint is dedicated to a different problem or vocation that you could encounter in your life, so a person who is dealing with life’s issues or has chosen a career path will definitely appreciate this considerate idea.

Whether you are celebrating the baptism of a baby, a teenager, or someone a little older, you can find Catholic baptism gift ideas at your local Christian bookstore, and of course, online.  While being able to walk into a store is very convenient, you should really give the online stores a chance because their inventory is usually much more extensive.  You might be able to find something more appropriate shopping online than at a traditional store.  Also, the prices online are usually much better too, so you can save some money.  Since online stores never close, you can save yourself a lot of time too, shopping at your convenience.
