Baby's Baptism - A Really Joyful Event: 

The baptism of a baby is a joyful celebration. With it, by request of its parents, baby is accepted as a member of the church. It's a great idea if your gift somehow reflects that happy event.

 These baptism gift ideas are categorized as follows:

* symbolic baptism gifts,

* religious / classic christening gift ideas

* 'other' baptism gift ideas.

On this page I have listed symbolic baptism gifts.

A little extra tip:

This cute 'God bless lamb' pacifier is cute to decorate your baptism gift or to accompany your gift certificate. Tie it to a ribbon and attach it to your present or envelope.

Symbolic Baptism Gift Ideas

Plant A Tree For Baby:

This gift symbolizes growth, food, sustainability and life itself. Give baby a tree as a baptism gift. Preferably take a fruit tree (apple tree) to plant in 'baby's' garden. Make sure there is enough space, though... Baby can see its tree grow and some years later the kid will love to watch the apples grow, harvest them and eat them. A really personal gift idea! Give together with a card explaining what the gift symbolizes and that it is meant to accompany baby's life.    

Name A Star:

Name a star for baby, symbolizing love, eternity, light and closeness. Buy and name a star for baby's baptism. However, you should be aware that the star name you are purchasing is not scientifically recognized - nevertheless this is a nice personalized gift. You can order it online and you will get a star certificate with the precise coordinates to present at baby's special day. There are several online sellers, all offering several gift packs at various prices. Packages come for example with a framed or unframed certificate, as a kids package, as a deluxe package, with a charm, etc. The certificates also come in several languages such as English, French, Spanish, German, and others.

Baby Nightlight:

Bring happiness and brightness into baby's life by giving a baby nightlight for baby's baptism. Add a card and explain what your gift should symbolize!

There are many cute nightlights with various features available. You can get some in the form of a lamb which I think is great for a baptism gift since the lamb is a common symbol in religion. The Summer Infant 'Laura the lamb' is really cute while it eases fear of dark, protects star constellations and glows in 3 soothing color options.

The plug-in cross nightlight is also a great idea to give for a baby's baptism! It comes in a variety of colors so you can even choose a pink one of a girl and a blue one for a boy. 

Noah's Ark Wind Up Musical Box:

A musical box and it's soothing sounds will lull baby comfortingly to sleep. And this one even has a biblical theme!

The Roman Noah's Ark musical box is very cute and suitable for baby's of every gender. A unique and very thoughtful gift for a baptism indeed!

So you can be sure the doll does not only look cute but is a safe toy for baby, too.

When giving a guardian angel, it's a cute idea to add this quote to your card:

'From joyful angels you have come, to fill our hearts with love. A guardian angel keeps her watch, protecting from above'.
