Baptism Presents - Gift Ideas for the Occasion
Are you looking for baptism gift ideas?
Baptism presents can be really hard to choose because, depending on the exact religion, you might find that you're dealing with someone of any age; but knowing the age often doesn't make it any easier to choose a gift for this huge occasion, either - so what does one give for a baptism gift that is appropriate and will be loved?
The gift of money
Many parents of infants and children will choose to set up an account for their little one's baptism. This can help you as the gift giver because all you need to do is give money for the child's account. The problem then becomes how much you can afford to give and your relationship to the child. Sometimes, you just can't give that much and in these economic times, that's okay, just don't be too "cheap" if you can help it.
Other gifts to keep the memory
So, maybe you don't have a lot of extra money to give for a baptism present, but you can still give a wonderful gift to help commemorate the occasion without looking like you're being "cheap". So, sometimes, it's better to choose a gift, but what does one give for this occasion?
Gifts for the godparents
Usually, when your child is baptized, you will want to give something special to the godparents of your child. Whether you have lots of extra money or you don't have much, you might find something really special when you work to personalize the baptism present you're giving.
Personalized christening picture frames can help to memorialize the occasion and give the godparents some really special memories. A silver frame can be engraved and won't cost too much money. When you add a photo of your child and her new god mother or father, you'll be giving a special gift that will be treasured forever.
Prayer stones are another really wonderful way for you to celebrate your child's new god parents and their faith. The right one can sit in a garden for years and years and will weather well, so, for the gardener god parent, this might be just the baptism present or gift to give.
Baptism presents don't have to be expensive or extravagant, but they should be personal and celebrate the occasion, so when you're shopping for baptism gifts, make sure that you put thought into the gift, and make sure the meaning shows.
