Baptism gift ideas?

3 of or 4 boys are being baptised at the end of this month. I have already bought our 9 month old an amber teething anklet with a cross for his gift... But I am at a loss on what to get our 6 year and 4 year old boys as thier gifts?? I would like it to be semi-religious..Any ideas would be appreciated!!

  • My husband and I gave our daughter her first really nice set of scriptures when she was baptized at 8. They were leather bound in blue (her favorite color) with her full name embossed on the front.

  • How about a baptismal cross (gold cross on a chain) for them to wear. It doesn't matter if they are too young to wear it. When they are older they will cherish that special piece of jewelry. (like getting pearls on your wedding day)
    You could also get an icon of their patron saint or guardian angel for their room, a special bible or a framed picture of them during/after their baptism.

  • For the 6 yr old how about a crucifix necklace? The 4 year old maybe you can get them one too and put it away until they are older.

  • I just bought picture frames for a set of twins, a boy and a girl who were baptized on Sunday, so they can keep the memory of a picture of the event forever.
