Whether it’s a little one’s christening or dedication service, or a Christian reaching a milestone in their faith, baptism is a time of celebration! It’s lovely to mark this special occasion with a baptism gift, especially if you’re a godparent, grandparent or close friend.
We’ve chosen some of our favourite gifts from Christian UK based makers, along with some Jordan Lily Designs pieces – read on for beautiful baptism presents for everyone from babies to teens to adults.
Heirloom baptism bracelet £35
This silver beaded bracelet is stamped with a dove, a symbol of the Holy Spirit and a reminder of Jesus’ own baptism. Luke’s gospel describes how ‘The Holy Spirit came down like a dove’ (Luke 3:22) and the bracelet comes with a complementary card illustrating this Scripture verse.
Silver is a traditional gift for christenings, with the custom of giving a present as an investment for the baby’s future (often silver cups, spoons or coins). As this bracelet is also available in a smaller size for children, it would be a lovely way to celebrate a little girl’s christening or first communion.
Little lighthouse for your home £10
We think this handmade glass ornament by Orchard Art Glass makes a gorgeous gift at any age… it would be a sweet addition to a little one’s nursery (especially if there’s a nautical theme!) or a meaningful symbol for an adult’s baptism. Lighthouses are a popular visual representation of God’s light and guidance in troubled times, bringing to mind Psalm 119:105: “Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path".
Bible journalling kit £18
This Bible journalling kit by Full Of Grace Studio is perfect for people who want to explore the Bible in a creative way! Themed around Jesus the Prince of Peace, this kit is a great gift for new Christians and teens, with lots of useful items to organise their Bible reading, highlight important verses, and reflect on personal meanings.
Sticker gift for a Christian friend £2
These Everlasting Love stickers are a thoughtful little extra to slip into a baptism card for a Christian friend or fellow church member. They feature the verse "I have loved you with an everlasting love" from Jeremiah 31:3. Stick one on a notebook, water bottle or laptop for a daily reminder that God’s love is with us all the time – not just for baptisms!
Christian ring for adult baptism £35 - £42
With a simple cross stamped into a silver band, this ring is an expression of faith that you can wear day to day, a little remembrance of the testimony of your baptism. Rings are often used as a symbol of making vows (like wedding bands) and their shape represents eternity with no beginning or end.
This ring is available as a slim 3mm band (£35) or chunky 6mm band (£42) in a range of sizes, so you can find the just-the-right fit for a man or woman.
Baptism gift for adults and teens £36.50
This super cosy unisex sweatshirt comes in 15 colours and a wide range of sizes, so you can choose the perfect gift for teens or adults. With its subtle ‘Faith can move mountains’ text on the cuff and a small illustration on the front, this is ideal for someone with minimalist taste who loves practical gifts to use and wear.
Small Bible gift for a Christian friend £8
Sticking with the floral theme, these gorgeous handmade fabric bookmarks by Ellen Hopkin Creates would make a sweet gift for a Christian friend or someone in your local church community. As baptism symbolises death, resurrection and new life with Jesus, the ‘living hope’ theme of these crosses is such a great fit.
Modern christening gift for baby boy or baby girl £23
While each one of us is a child of God, this cute baby onesie by Laurent Collective is specifically sized for tiny people! It’s a lovely modern gift to celebrate a baby’s dedication or christening which their parents can use straightaway and then add to a keepsake box later on.
Personalised Christian notebook £15.95
This pretty floral notebook by Creative Stationery London can be personalised with the name or initials of the person getting baptised – a beautiful gift for teens or women of any age. With Bible verses on the front cover and the lined pages inside, it’s brilliant for journalling, Bible study, or sermon notes.
From traditional to contemporary ideas, we hope you’ve found the perfect present for your person with this list of gifts for baptisms!
