Being asked to be a godparent is a special honour.

The best gifts are the ones that are meaningful and come from the heart so remember to put some thought into what you choose.

Jewellery

Don't think that it's too early to buy jewellery for the new lady in your life. Buying a special piece of jewellery, like an engraved charm, a cross necklace or bracelet will be something she will appreciate when she is older. It will be meaningful for her since it will be a gift on this momentous day and each time she wears it, it remind her of the bond you two will always share and how much she is loved.

Investment

If you want to give the gift of money to your goddaughter as a way to invest in her future, there are other options besides cash. You can purchase a savings bond that will gather monthly interest for years to come. It can be something you continue to give throughout the years. You could also check with her parents first and maybe open a CD with some money it.

Personal Touch

If you want to buy something with a personal touch, there are so many options to choose from. A glass engraved frame will be something your goddaughter's parents may appreciate and will put to good use immediately. A musical snow globe with an engraved message can be a gift that can help put your goddaughter to sleep and may be the start of a collection. Another idea to consider is an engraved plaque that can hang in her room.

Religious

Since this is a religious day, consider buying something that will commemorate that. Perhaps you would like to purchase a special rosary that your goddaughter will always have. You could also pick a cross that is a charm or a larger one that can be placed in her bedroom. Finally, you may want to consider purchasing a Bible and leaving a thoughtful message in it.

Sentimental and Sweet

Bring out your softer side and inner poet by writing your goddaughter a meaningful message. The letter or poem can serve as a promise to her. Write in it all the ways you plan on supporting and loving her through the years. Include your wish for what type of life you want her to have. It will be something she will always keep and it will let her know how special and lucky she is to you. She'll also realise why her parents chose you to have this important role in her life.
