What is an appropriate gift for a baptism?
Most gifts for a baptism can be for either gender. Unisex gifts could be items like a bible with the child’s name engraved on it or a silver rattle. For something less traditional, think about buying a piggy bank for money gifted to the child. The child may also like a personalized photo frame for the child’s room.

Do you give money for baptism?
There is no rule that says you have to give cash for a Baptism. If you can’t afford to give as nice an amount as you’d like, it’s perfectly acceptable to give a Baptism gift in another form. You can purchase a savings bond for baby at any bank. Another option is to give a present appropriate for baby instead of cash.

How much do you spend on a baptism?
Anything between $10 and $100 is generous. If you are close to the child, aim for the higher end. It’s a kind gesture to gift money, but you need to know a range to go for. Whether you are the godparent, cousin, grandparent, auntie, or uncle, you should find answers in the subsequent sections.
How much money do grandparents give for a baptism?
Being a godparent, you would be expected to offer a significant amount of $100-$150, and even more if you may afford. For other close relatives, $50 would be acceptable. $50 is a very nice gift for a Baptism.
How much money do you give for a Greek baptism?
A Greek Orthodox Baptism is as big and formal as a wedding. Money is an appropriate gift. We usually give $100. We give more for a niece/ nephew or close relative.
Why is baptism a gift from God?
Baptism washes away our sins through water, and renews us with an indelible mark which can never be taken away, even if we sin again. Baptism is another example of the endless gifts of love God gives to us to help us on our journey to Him, and this is the most important.
What should you not wear to a baptism?
Outfit Tips for Baptisms
- Avoid low-cut tops and short skirts/dresses. High necklines and knee-length or midi or maxi lengths are perfect!
- Avoid extremely tight and clingy clothing. (This is not to say your attire can’t be fitted, just avoid EXTREMELY tight clothing.)
- Avoid spaghetti straps.
What is the difference between baptism and christening?
Baptism is a Christian religious sacrament. Taken out of the religious context, a baptism represents a form of initiation. Christening is the ceremony during which a child is given a name before Christ and is baptized. The term has also been used to refer to official naming ceremonies.
