Each of the items featured on our list is bound to become a keepsake to remind a girl of the day of her baptism. Some make for a nice addition to a bookshelf or curio cabinet, such as the newly added Precious Moments Cross, which features an infant on her baptism day, wearing a long, flowing dress and a bonnet. It bears the words, “You are a child of God” and is sculpted of matte bisque porcelain and hand-painted. It’s got designated spots on the back for you to write the baby’s name and christening date. It stands six inches tall and, as some users point out, it makes for a nice cake topper. We also rounded out the list by adding in a piece of jewelry, the Crystal Dream Charm Bracelet. It’s made by hand in New York, featuring shiny pearls and iridescent beads, with a silver cross charm. It can be extended by an inch to accommodate children of up to three years of age. Similar versions are also sold in larger sizes older children and adults. It sports a sturdy lobster claw clasp and comes in an elegant suede storage pouch.
The Custom Catch Personalized Blanket remains in the number one spot in this update. Like the Elegant Baby Premium Bib, it’s well suited for use on the baptism day, as you can wrap your daughter in it to keep her warm and cozy. It features her name and the date imprinted on its soft fleece material, with wide satin trim all around. For a soft, plush toy that an infant or toddler is bound to enjoy cuddling with, look to the Ganz Serenity Lamb, which is featured in a prayerful pose and holding a removable cross-shaped pendant. It’s got an attractive gift tag attached to the ear, so you can write your name and that of the recipient.
In this update, we removed the Mudpie Classic Keepsakes Rattle, as it isn’t suitable for anyone under three years of age. We also removed the Cameron Rose Collection Keepsake Baby Headband, which doesn’t always hold up throughout the ceremony, thanks to its delicate beading.
