You've promised to support him and help guide him religiously. Now that it is your godson's birthday, pick him a fitting gift. Keep in mind his age, personality and your personal relationship with him. You want to select a gift that conveys how special he is to you, but also one that is a responsible and well-thought out choice.

First Book of Prayers
Play a part in encouraging your godson's faith. Choose an age-appropriate book of prayers for him. Depending on his age, you will find a number of publications to choose from. Very young boys will enjoy prayer books illustrated with colourful pictures; parents can read the prayers aloud. An older boy will still enjoy illustrated prayer books. Select one that he will be able to read by himself and is within his level of comprehension. Hopefully, he will treasure the book for years.

Personalised Piggy Bank
Help teach your godson to save money early in his life. Encourage great savings habits by giving him a piggy bank on his birthday. Boys of all ages will learn to reach their goals by saving their cash regularly. Have the piggy bank personalised with your godson's name on it or even a special message from you. Silver piggy banks may be professionally engraved.

"Godson" Photo Frame
You'll probably have at least a few treasured photos of you with your godson. For his birthday, frame one of them in a specialised frame. Look for wooden frames that are carved with the word "Godson" to set off your photo. Keepsake photo frames made from silver are easily engraved to suit your needs. These gifts are especially welcomed if you live far away from each other, but you'd like to keep your presence felt in his life.

Set your godson up financially with savings bonds. Begin buying them early on in his life for maximum value. Savings bonds are available at your local bank and, nowadays, even online for convenience. They are a safe method of investing money, and the person named on the bond is the sole owner. Consider buying your godson a savings bond in his name, each year for his birthday. Buy it in any increment from £16; it will grow over the years, and he will be able to put it toward a larger item in the future.
