My Godparents bought me a bible (which I still have), a baby bracelet (still have), and a savings bond.

I’m not sure if you’ve read through this thread but some great ideas are included there.

In our family, the Godmother buys the entire ensemble, and for the girls we also buy their first ring (with a tiny diamond in it) as well as a cross necklace. For the boys we buy a special medal for their patron saint, or we’ve also bought either a crucifix for the wall and a  crib medal. We also give a savings bond.

@ams12: I would say that a lot of people are going to give traditional christening gifts. If you would like to go that route, do not buy the actual dress. It is a really personal thing and many times each child is christened in that outfit so the parents most often want to pick that out. For my most recent nephew I bought him a very large piggy bank. I wanted to give something of use but also untraditional. That is my typical route.

 

Here is something similar to what I bought…

I bought my goddaughter (also my niece!) a little cross with a tiny diamond in it.  I also gave her a small check for her college fund.

My son’s godmother bought him a picture album in silver that was personalized. She died a few years ago so it has become especially dear.

@ams12: Are you familiar with James Avery?  It is a potential resource for religious jewelry items.
