A baptism is a religious ceremony that welcomes a new baby into the Christian faith. It’s also called a christening in certain denominations. The exact procedure and ceremony vary from denomination to denomination. However, it typically involves sprinkling water on the head of the child and welcoming her into the faith. A baptism is a time for great celebration, especially for the baby and her family. One way to help join in on the festivities is with a sweet and meaningful gift for the child. Here’s how to choose the very best baptism gift for the new baby in your life.
How to Choose a Baptism Gift
Many people opt for a religious gift for a baptism. There are many sweet and meaningful gifts for little ones that fit this bill. For instance, you could choose a children’s bible personalized with her name. Or, find a book of prayers and devotionals for the little one. Or, choose a cross bracelet or necklace she can wear as she grows. Consider a piggy bank that features pairs of animals from Noah’s ark or a cross that can hang in her nursery.
Keep in mind, however, that the new baby and her family will receive a lot of religious gifts for her baptism. Think outside the box with a delicious fruit arrangement from Edible Arrangements® the entire family can share. Consider a box of chocolate covered strawberries covered in pink or blue Swizzle® that will make a big impact at any baptism party.
