Baptism is the first sacrament of the Christian church and is a symbolic act through which Catholics are cleansed and born into their faith. Infants are commonly baptised shortly after birth, but children and adults of all ages can be baptised if they have not been so before. To celebrate the event, gift givers can offer the newly baptised a keepsake gift or something else to help enjoy the day.
