Need a good idea for a Baptism gift for a 10 year old boy.

Our (almost) 10 year old son is getting baptised on Sunday. I want to get him something special to mark the occasion but I'm having a tough time thinking of an appropriate gift. When I was baptised (a million years ago) I got a new Bible, a Precious Moments figurine, and the book The Giving Tree. They were all perfect gifts for an 11 year old girl. But what to do for a boy?! He just got a new, very nice Bible a few months back. I doubt he'd see much use in a Precious Moments figure and we already have The Giving Tree. Any ideas would be helpful. I'm at a total loss here. Updated: Thanks to all of you. We found a plaque that has a Psalm on it for his room and we got him a cross necklace. I think he'll like them.

My cousins kids' got baptized at age 12 and 8, the 8 year old is a boy and we gave him a nice watch to mark the occasion...so there's an idea for ya, a watch. His sister got a pretty cross necklace.

a cross pendant for a chain or cross necklace.  Another idea is a trinket commemorating the baptism,  they usually sell figurines and stuff in jewelry shops or Hallmark stores.
