Baptism Gift Guide: Gift ideas for Baby, Godmothers, and Godfathers
I hope you all are having a restful and relaxing weekend. Today we are going to talk about baptism -- one of the most exciting and important things to happen in a family!
“And baptism, which [the flood] prefigured, now saves you—not as a removal of dirt from the body, but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,” - 1 Peter 3:21.
This has been on my mind especially recently since we've already started planning our new baby's baptism. Call me crazy, but I like having baby baptized ASAP after their born, so we start talking to our priest and getting prepared before baby leaves the womb.
To help you and your loved ones celebrate, I made a list of wonderful gift ideas for babies, Godmothers, and Godfathers. These are from my favorite artisans and small businesses... I hope you love them as much as I do!
