|"We are all welcome to come into the waters of baptism. He was baptized to witness to His Father that He would be obedient in keeping His commandments. He was baptized to show us that we should receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."
― Robert D. Hales
When you give someone a spiritual and sacred gift, its value increases tenfold. Rather than the gift being only a purchased item, it becomes something of great value―a priceless token.
Here are some gift ideas you can choose to select from in order to present them as a gift to the fortunate boy.
Set of Scriptures
At the time of baptism, presenting this gift to someone is not just sensible, but personal as well. Your gift is more than just a present; it has a deep meaning behind it. This gift can bring the person closer to the Lord, and will become a part of their lives. When a young boy is being baptized, you can be the first one to impart the knowledge and make him realize of its importance. Apart from a set of scriptures, you can even give the boy other books related to the church. There are many books like Of Pigs, Pearls, and Prodigals: A Fresh Look At the Parables of Jesus by John Bytheway, The Peacegiver: How Christ Offers to Heal Our Hearts and Home by James L. Ferrell, or The Time-Starved Family by DeAnne Flynn.
Cute and Cuddly Mission Bear
If the boy who is going to get his gift is quite young, then a mission bear is just the gift for him. He can take this bear wherever he goes; to the church, to primary classes, or wherever. These bears are made especially for missionaries and it can make a perfect gift for the little boy. Search for websites that provide this bear.
Many times, when we are in great need of a spiritual guidance, all you need to do is look at His face and everything falls into place. So for our next gift idea, we suggest a framed picture of prophets, a picture from any of the scriptures, or even temples. The boy who receives the gift can keep the picture in his room, or anywhere around the house. Every time he sees this picture, his faith and belief can become stronger; and he won't forget who gave this gift to him.
Special Prayer Rock
This gift can be given to remind kids to pray in the morning, and in the evening before going to bed. The prayer rock is a good method to habituate the kids to say their prayers everyday. This rock is kept on the pillow so that whenever the child goes off to bed, he knows that a prayer has to be said beforehand. You can either purchase a prayer rock from an LDS-themed store or give one on your own. Just make sure that the rock is smooth around the edges, a little round in shape, and clean. You can personalize the gift by engraving, "Dear (name of the kid)... It's time to pray".
You can buy them an LDS pendant or ring. You can get the jewelry that is inscribed with a particular verse or phrase that is close to your heart and you wish to send the message across to the kid(s). If the child, whoever is receiving the gift, is going to primary classes, the pendant or ring will be very useful at that time. Or let's say he has already finished primary classes, then the pendant or ring will remind him of the time he spent in the classes.
