Baptism gift ideas for godchild

KleinKlein Registered User regular
I am seeking advice on a good baptism gift for my godchild, I was hoping someone could provide some advice. Is $100 about right that I could give them for a college fund or whatever? I am also looking to buy another small gift for the child that would not be overly religious but still appropriate.

    What faith? Donation to a college fund and a small bible is pretty common. If they're Episcopalian, a Book of Common Prayer is better. And then I'd go with "some other age-appropriate book" for the other one.

    How old is the child in question? I know Catholics like to do baptism early on, but other flavors of Christianity can do it much later.

    The Complete Veggie Tales on Blu-ray.

    Yes $100 is good. Gift could be a necklace or small keepsake box. Kids Bible is appropriate as well, or a small plaque with some general inspirational message on it.

    In my family, we always give a cross engraved with the child’s name and date of baptism.
