Being a godmother to a child is an important task, where you are responsible for guiding him as he faces the realities of life. If you've been honored and asked to be a child's godmother, then it is only right that a beautiful gift be given.
It is a symbol of not just gifting a child something because the occasion demands it, but to honor the commitment made between child and guardian. Now that you will play an active part in the child's life, it is only befitting to give something that will last for a long time to come.
Baptism Gifts to Give a Grandson
The pendant can be given on its own in a little gift box or placed on a gold necklace, if you'd like. Because the gift is molded from a precious metal, it will be cherished and stand the test of time for years to come.
Baby Clothes and Gold Ring
If you know how to knit, then you can make a set of baby clothes that the child can wear during his initial years. The only downside is, the child won't be able to wear it any longer as he ages. But he can of course look back on them as a grownup and possibly use it for his own kids.
Along with the baby clothes, you can also include a gold ring with an inscription on it that says, "You can always count on me. Love, (your name).". The dual gift offering is sure to be appreciated wholeheartedly by the parents, and your grandson when he's old enough to know.
Record moments spend with your grandson right from the day of the baptism, to when he's all grownup. Gift him the scrapbook on his 20th or 25th birthday, where he'll be stumped for words once he sees what went behind such a massive project.
While most people take such things for granted, you'll most certainly not be one of them. It'll serve as a beautiful timeline that captures special moments between a godmother and her grandson.
