A child's baptism is a major occasion no matter who the baptised baby is. But when that baby is your granddaughter, you want to pull out all the stops when it comes to getting her a gift. Deciding on a gift is not always easy, but you have plenty of options including a picture frame, jewellery, a cross, a photo album, a stuffed lamb or a Bible.
A baptism photo frame is a simple way to show your granddaughter that you are proud to have her in your life. You can buy a speciality baptism photo frame with scripture and a "To Our Granddaughter" salutation from most Christian gift stores, or you can buy a frame and have it engraved with a personal message and your granddaughter's name.
A crucifix or cross necklace is an elegant choice for your granddaughter. This long-lasting gift is something she can cherish for the rest of her life, and she will think of you whenever she wears it. A shorter necklace chain is best for a baby. You can also buy a baptism bracelet with a cross charm. Silver or gold links, or pearls, are commonly chosen for baptism bracelets.
A cross for the wall is a decorative way to commemorate the baptism of your granddaughter. Many Christian speciality stores sell baptism-specific crosses with messages like "On Your Baptism" or "Bless the Child." You can also choose from pewter, silver, gold or wood, so you can find something that matches her room.
Baptism photo albums are usually white with a cross on the front and a message about the baptised child. Many can be personalised with your granddaughter's name and a "Love Grandma and Grandpa" signature. If you give a photo album gift, put a few pictures of you with your granddaughter in the front, if you have any, to get her photo album started.
Stuffed lambs are a common gift you can give your little lamb. You can choose to get a realistic white one, or you can even get a pink or purple lamb. Many stuffed lambs are sold at Christian stores with ribbons that have messages such as "Jesus Loves You" or "Bless You Always." A stuffed animal will give your granddaughter something to snuggle with at night and she will think of you when she goes to sleep.
You can give your granddaughter her first Bible on her baptism, with a personal message from you on the inside. Every time she uses her Bible, she will think of you, and she will bring it to church with her every Sunday.
