If you have been asked to be a godfather, it is an honour from the family. Your job on the day of the christening is to stand beside the child as the minister scoops the holy water on their head. So, giving an important gift that reflects the religious growth and your support is fitting for a day like a christening.

Give a frame that has a picture of you and the child on the special day. It would be a symbol of the memory and your support for the child that day. Card and novelty stores carry a lot of frames fitting for such an occasion.

There are many religious children's books available. There are child-friendly bibles, books of religious poetry and religious story telling. Getting a book like this would be a great learning tool when the child starts understanding their religion. It is also a very fitting gift for such a religious occasion.

If you are the godfather to a girl, jewellery is fitting. There are a lot of religious earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings available. If she is too young to wear them, they can be worn on her next occasion; the First Communion. Get a piece with the Holy Cross on it. You could also buy her own set of rosary beads. These sorts of pieces are usually treasured in religious families and passed down for generations.

Get a scrapbook or photo album. This will make a perfect memory keepsake. Make sure to help the parents or hosts take a lot of pictures of the occasion so there are plenty of photos. In years to come, when the child will mostly likely not remember the day because she was a baby, this will be a treasure that will let her see all the people who showed up, celebrated and supported her. Make sure to write a note to the child from you on the inside flap of the book.
