It's exciting when you have a young family member or child of a close friend who is scheduled to be baptized. While you'll likely be planning to attend the service and perhaps even take part in a party that will occur afterward, you should also be thinking of a special gift to buy. There are lots of different gifts that can be appropriate for a baptism. One category of gifts to consider is items that are framed. They can appear in a prominent place in the person's home and won't take up too much space. Here are three framed baptismal gifts to consider buying.
One special gift that you may wish to consider giving a framed piece of scripture. Stores that specialize in religious-themed gifts carry many such products, and lots of these pieces can be appropriate for this occasion. Browse your options and choose a short piece of scripture that ties into this occasion and/or that you know the recipient's family will appreciate. These framed pieces vary in design. Some have a pristine look, while others are designed to appear more rustic. You can select a look that you feel will suit the style of the recipient family's home.
Another option is to choose a framed piece that has space for a photo of the child who is being baptized. These pieces often have a quote or sentiment about the baptism journey adjacent to the space for the photo. This isn't a gift that you'll be able to give on the day of the baptism. You'll need to wait until the child is baptized so that you can get a photo of the occasion. Once you have a copy of the photo, you can print a copy, put it in the frame, and arrange a time to deliver the gift.
Some stores have a wide selection of framed pieces that feature children's names. You may see the name of the child in stock, or there may be the option of ordering a custom piece for a child with a unique name. A common one features the child's name with a religious quote below. Often, the letters of the name will be highly decorative and have a religious theme. For example, the letter "A" may appear as two hands held together as though in prayer. This piece can be a fun addition to the child's room, as it can help them learn to spell their name as they get older. Look online for a store that specializes in baptismal gifts.
