Being a Godparent is an incredibly special duty, and it is one that you want to ensure goes to the right person.
Your child’s Godparent is there to act as another role model and mentor, the one that they go to when they do not feel that they can go to you. It is important for a child to be surrounded by positive role models who will help them to grow into successful and well-adjusted adults, and that is exactly the role of a Godparent.
If you are religious, then Godparents will also help to instruct your child on their religious duties, but plenty of secular people make the role their own, too.
There is no doubt that a Godparent is a special person who has agreed to take on an important responsibility within your child’s life. Knowing what gift is special enough to really say thank you can be a tough call.
Luckily, we are here to help you with some great ideas.
A baptism or naming ceremony is a celebration, and what better way to celebrate than with some bubbles?
Just one of the gifts available as part of the extensive range of Godparent gifts from Prezzybox is a gorgeous box containing a personalized bottle of prosecco, along with some decadent chocolates. The whole lot is presented in a sleek, satin lined box, so your Godparent will feel truly special as they tuck into the treat that you have gotten for them.
Personalized bottle gifts are wonderful even after the contents are gone, because they can be kept and used as a candle holder for romantic dinner or as the bottle for a bottle lamp.
If you are religious, then a gift that symbolizes the religious significance of the role could be just perfect. Some traditional Godparent gifts are things like prayer books, or jewelry or home decor featuring crosses or other religious imagery.
You could also make a gift out of a favorite Bible quote by adding it to jewelry, or by turning it into a print to hang around the home.
Jewelry is a wonderful gift for a special occasion like a baptism because it is something that will be kept and worn forever. A piece of jewelry with some kind of special significance is a great godparent gift. For example, a necklace with two circles intertwined could represent the bond between Godparent and Godchild, or you could get jewelry with the birthstone of your Godparent on it.
Godparent themed gifts
Most Godparents are pretty proud to have been given that responsibility, so getting them a gift that lets them flaunt it in a light-hearted way can be pretty perfect.
Something as simple as a ‘best godparent in the world’ mug could raise a smile and mean a lot.
A keepsake to remind your Godparent of the day always goes down well. Some special wine or whiskey glasses engraved with the date of the baptism are a great way to show your appreciation and commemorate the day at the same time.
