Commemorate the Occasion

One meaningful way to celebrate a baptism is by presenting the child with our Plush Lamb with Crib Cross. This soft and cuddly companion is a comforting reminder of God's love and protection. The lamb's cross bears the phrase, “Jesus loves me,” offering a tangible symbol of the child's baptism and their connection to the Christian community.

During the baptism celebration, encourage guests to write their blessings or prayers for the child on small pieces of paper and place them inside a jar beside the plush lamb. This thoughtful gesture allows the child and their family to revisit these loving words in the future, deepening the significance of the baptism.

Cherish the Melodies of Faith

Music has a way of touching our hearts and souls. A Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Music Box is an enchanting gift that allows the child or their parents to treasure the soothing melodies of faith. This wood-cut musical box, adorned with an elegant design and prayer, plays the beloved lullaby “Jesus Loves Me” while serving as a cherished keepsake.

To incorporate this gift into the baptism celebration, consider having a musical interlude during the ceremony or the post-celebratory gathering. Play the lullaby from the music box to create a serene and calming atmosphere as everyone gathers to celebrate this special occasion.

Adorn the Home

A baptism wall cross is a beautiful addition to any home, serving as a symbol of faith and a constant reminder of the baptismal vows. The 6.5-Inch Baptism Wall Cross, crafted with a resin and stone mix, becomes a visual representation of the family's commitment to raising their child in the Christian faith.

Hang this cross prominently in a nursery or family room to create a sacred space that nurtures the child's spiritual growth. During the baptism celebration, consider inviting a close family member or friend to say a prayer or offer a blessing for the child while standing near the baptism wall cross. This symbolic act reinforces the importance of faith in the child's life and creates a moment of reflection for all attendees.

Keep Faith Close to the Heart

A cross pendant is a timeless symbol of faith and devotion. Gift the newly baptized individual with our Cross Pendant with the Vision of the Lord's Prayer, which allows them to carry their faith close to their heart. This pendant showcases the Lord's Prayer beautifully engraved within the cross, representing the importance of prayer and personal connection with God.

To incorporate this gift into the baptism celebration, consider having a special blessing for the pendant during the ceremony. Invite a family member or clergy member to bless the pendant and say a prayer for the child's spiritual journey. Consider providing small cards with the Lord's Prayer printed on them near the gift table, encouraging guests to take one as a reminder of their own faith.

A baptism is an extraordinary event for any child, filled with love, hope, and blessings. By selecting one of these unique Christian gifts, you can make the celebration even more memorable. Choose Gifts With Love for children’s religious gift ideas that resonate with the individual being baptized.
