  • Well you can with her name if she's named after a Saint, or ask her parents which Saints name they are going to use at her Baptism.

  • There's all kinds of stuff on gifts.com. That is where I got my sons gift for first communion. Just message me if you still need some help.

  • This will be a baby's baptism and not a teen's confirmation, correct? You could do a rosary, a baby bracelet, a cross for her room. Savings bonds are very popular baptism gifts.

  • There is a store on Schuyler in Kankakee where you will be able to find something for your soon-to-be Goddaughter. Both my daughter and son were just baptized at the begining of the month and they received a rosary made out of legos (http://www.etsy.com/shop/MementoMoose), a cross for each of them to hang in their rooms, and a bible. Good luck on finding something and congrats on being chosen to be her Godmother!
