Editor's Notes

April 09, 2020:

Each of the items on our carefully curated list can become a prized keepsake and adorn the bookshelf or mantle of your recipient’s home, a frequent reminder of his special baptism day. Today, we added in the Precious Moments Snow Globe, which features a charming scene of a little boy sharing a tender moment with a lamb. Children will delight at the iridescent glitter that floats around when you shake it up, as well as the sweet “Jesus Love Me” tune it can play. This whimsical piece is painted by hand and features a blue and white gingham base with an attached plate bearing the name of the song.

In this update, we also replaced an older picture frame model with the elegant, mirrored glass Malden International Designs Picture Frame. It can hold a 4-by-6-inch photo, which is surrounded by a shiny silver border. It’s got “May the Lord bless you today and always,” inscribed on bottom, as well as “Baby’s Baptism” written on top, along with a cross.

If you’re looking for a gift for an older boy being baptized or having a dedication, check out the Fire Up the Soul Compass, which will come in handy for any Boy Scout or lover of backpacking and camping. While he’s using it, he will also be reminded of God, thanks to the Bible verse printed on the back of its brass case. On the other end of the spectrum, if it’s an infant you’re buying for, look to the soft, plush Baby Gund Prayer Bear, who is featured in a kneeling pose and wearing a charming old-fashioned stocking cap. He recites “Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep,” so your little one can pray along with him each bedtime.

The little baseball lover-to-be will one day appreciate the LifeSong Milestones Baseball Bat, which is engraved with a line from the Psalms as well as his name and the date of his baptism. All the words are etched in an attractive combination of cursive and block letters that are clear and legible. Some people firmly believe nothing beats the gift of a good book, and God Bless You and Good Night is likely one a baby will want to hear every bedtime. It features endearing illustrations and fun rhymes about different animals as they get ready to go to sleep.

Special Honors

Christening Word Frame This photo frame features a heart bearing many words that come to mind for a little one’s special occasion including “congratulations,” “faith,” and “precious.” Make the gift complete by adding a 4-by-6-inch photo to the right and some personalized engraving to the bottom plate. The back features a sturdy easel that helps it stand nicely on any bookshelf, night stand, or mantle.

Engraved Pewter Baby Cup This elegant heirloom cup is handcrafted in England and can hold up to eight ounces of liquid. It can be custom engraved with a name of up to 15 characters, with the date on a separate line. Crafted with a shiny, smooth surface, it boasts an ornate, embellished handle and makes for a great baptism or new baby gift.
