A Child’s Baptism – Gift Ideas for this Special Occasion


A newborn’s baptism is a time when loved ones join together to witness a joyous occasion. It’s an event that should be marked by a gift, but many don’t know what type of present is appropriate to celebrate a baptism. While some choose to give money or a savings bond, it is also thoughtful to give a gift that will help preserve the memory of this special day. Some ideas include a photo album, handmade gift or personalized present – gifts that will keep giving for years to come.

Photo Albums

A photo album will help to cherish the memory of this special day. While a white or ivory album is a classic gift, you can also look for albums that are more unique, yet still beautiful. Try looking for a pastel polka-dot, striped or patterned album. Another option is a linen or cotton fabric-covered photo album. These albums are becoming more and more popular and provide a special touch to this classic gift.

Handmade Gifts

A handmade gift is also something that will continually evoke the memory of this special day. Even if you aren’t up for knitting a blanket or pair of booties, you can often find luxuriously soft handmade blankets or stuffed animals at smaller children’s boutiques. Handmade gifts like these will be used for years to come and are special enough to be passed down from generation to generation.

Personalized Presents

Another thoughtful option is something personalized. A monogrammed silver-plated rattle or cup is a classic gift that will serve as a wonderful keepsake. You can also have a blanket or stuffed animal monogrammed with the child’s initials or date of the baptism. Lastly, if you choose to personalize something more practical, a picture frame engraved with the child’s name or date of the baptism is also a thoughtful gift.

Any of these gift ideas would be graciously received from the family. However, many of these presents, such as handmade gifts, are not found at mass retailers. If you don’t have access to a city flecked with unique children’s boutiques, try scouting the web for online boutiques that specialize in baby gifts. Gift ideas available on the web are endless, so you’re sure to find both an appropriate and wonderful baptism gift even without leaving the comfort of your home.
