Spoil your daughter with a gift on her baptism to commemorate this important day. When choosing a special gift for your daughter, look for a keepsake that she can pass down to her own child, or an item that can be personalized with her name and baptism date.
Buy a personalized bracelet for your daughter to fit her wrist. Bracelets, which can be purchased at jewelry stores or ordered through independent vendors, can be customized. Choose a strand of her birthstone or spell out her name using beads. Other bracelet options include cross charms engraved with her name or initials and the date of the baptism.
Choose a sterling silver jewelry box and have her name engraved on it, or pick a pretty pink or purple jewelry box that plays a lullaby. The gift of a jewelry box gives her a place to keep her most valuable pieces and has sentimental value. Jewelry boxes can be purchased at fine retailers or department stores. Keep the box on a dresser or chest, out of her reach, until she is old enough to use it carefully.
Purchase a cross necklace and have her wear it during the baptism ceremony. You can have her name and the date of the baptism engraved on the back of the cross if you choose. Crosses in silver, gold and white gold can be found at most jewelry stores.
Her First Bible
Purchase her first Bible and write a dedication to her inside the front cover. Bibles are a traditional baptism gift because of their symbolism; however, she will also use her Bible when she attends Sunday school, church or religion classes. Bibles can range widely in price, depending on the size of the volume and the type of cover.
