Favorite Baptism Gift Ideas

Last weekend, our new nephew, Ezra, was baptized! I have to say, it's one of my favorite sacraments to watch. There is nothing sweeter than seeing a little baby all dressed up and ready to enter into the faith :) We have had a few other baptisms recently, and I've been trying to get different gifts for each of them ... what do you typically get for a baptism gift? Here are our favorites:

Books - a child can never have too many books! We have a bunch of saint books, board books of different Bible stories, and Notre Dame books (those can be included, right? ;). For Ezra, we picked out a children's Mass book for him to take to church :)

These are some of the books that we rotate through our church bag - some are my children's baptism gifts,
others are from my childhood :) All great stories!

Crosses - this is what we always get for our godchildren and our own kids. We hang a little cross over their light switches in their bedrooms. :)

Religious themed toy - I love bringing soft toys in our church bag, so this Rosary toy would be a fun gift for a baby or toddler. And, I'm really loving these felt saint dolls I found on Etsy.

Doll - a wonderful idea for an older child would be a saint doll. I absolutely love this doll, and can't wait to get one for Abby. They currently have the St. Therese doll available (which is one of my favorites), and are hoping to add a variety of other saints - including ones for boys! I think this is a great way for younger children to find out more about the lives of the saints and their faith.

Edit: The Therese Doll is available for 25% off using the code THERESE from September 23 - October 3, 2015 in honor of St. Therese's feast day. What a great deal - this would be a wonderful Christmas gift! :)

Saint Therese in her habit and her 'Sunday attire.' Seriously, how cute are these? 
Want to find out more? - check them out at Dolls from Heaven.

Jewelry - another great idea for an older child or adult would be jewelry! Personally I love rosary bracelets or personalized necklaces keeping the sacrament in mind. Do you have any favorite Etsy jewelry stores - there are so many to choose from!

What are your favorite finds for religious gifts?

Have a wonderful weekend!! :)
