My niece is getting baptised soon and is a couple of months old.
Whilst I was raised Catholic, I can't remember the last time I went to a Catholic baptism. I'm not religious & DH is atheist.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what would be an appropriate gift?

Some nice gifts my children received included (religious) a children’s bible, crucifix, rosary beads, or non religious nice jewellery, jewellery box, commemorative coin set, monogrammed wallet, engraved watch, willow tree ornament.
Hope that helps

I always give money in a card as a gift. DS received mostly cash for his (Catholic) baptism. It ranged from $20 - $200.
We had setup a bank account for DS when he was born so it was nice to be able to put the money away for him.

We've received books, bible story picture books etc, children's bible, non religious jewellery, religious jewellery, book ends and keepsake things. I'm not sure there are rules to it! Something thoughtful, if you aren't too religious yourselves, would be appreciated, I'm sure.

I'd probably avoid things like bibles that you really don't need more than one of as you would probably find others would have the same idea. Cash is probably a safe option or a piece of jewellery.

My little one received lots of nice clothes in many different sizes which has been really good.

The Mint does a nice boxed coin set for babies, commemorating their year of birth.

For little girls i buy a bracelet in a kid size and have their name put on it. I also buy books or a pretty outfit.

Nice money box or photo frame.
A piece of art or framed print suitable for child's bedroom.

My go-to baptism gift for babies is Max Lucado's book, "You Are Special".
