I couldn’t help but add a keepsake box to the list! I love that it can be customized with their name, a cross, and the date of their Baptism.

Is Money a Unique Baptism Gift?
Giving money can be a sensitive topic. While cash gifts are always welcome, it can be tricky to determine how much is appropriate. If you are close to the family, a gift of $25-$50 is appropriate. Although if the family is aware of a loved ones difficult finances, a gift of whatever amount is appreciated.
Baptism Gifts from Godparents
Godparents have an important role in the life of a child. It would be appropriate to give something that is lasting, representing the lifelong bond between a child and their godparents. Here is just one example of one such gift.
