When you are thinking of buying Christmas gifts for all your family, a gift for your child’s godparent may not be your first priority. With many family and friends to buy gifts for each year it can often be easy to forget the most important people.
Christmas is the perfect time to show your appreciation for your child’s godparents so why not treat them with a lovely gift from Born Gifted?
Not only do they help to support your child by being of assistance when you can’t be there, they also act as a guardian and help your child to learn and develop by always being there for them.
Godparents also have a special role as they are usually present at your child’s Christening or baptism and must promise that they must care for your child in your absence.
Here are some of the best Christmas gifts for Godparents:

As a godmother or godfather, you want to do the best you can for the little one whose happiness and wellbeing has been entrusted to you by their parents. It’s an amazing statement of love and friendship, and we at Born Gifted understand that your relationship with your godchild will be special from the start.
We know you’ll want gifts for a godchild to stand out at birthdays and on special occasions. A little bit of the responsibility for the way the godchild grows up and who they become belongs to you, so the baby and toddler toys you select as gifts should take some thought.
One of the ways you can do something positive for your godchild right from the start is to pick Fair Trade baby gifts. These are made by craftsmen and women working their way out of poverty in some of the most desperate places in the world. Through the Fair Trade scheme, they are paid a fair price for the baby and toddler toys or other wares that they make. It’s a small contribution towards a better, fairer world for your godchild to grow up in, and it shows the baby’s mum and dad how seriously you are going to take the responsibility of being a godparent.
Some of the best Fair Trade gifts for a godchild can be found in our wooden toys section. They are usually brightly coloured with a lovely smooth feel and texture ideal for young children to enjoy, and often have an educational component too.

You’ve got everything organised for your child’s Christening. The church is booked, the invitations have been sent to friends and family, and the party at your home is just about sorted out. That’s it then, isn’t it? It’s probably at this point that you will realise that you haven’t chosen Godparent gifts; a special way of saying thank you to the people who have agreed to be Godparents to your child.
You don’t have to worry, because the people at Born Gifted have hundreds of great ideas when it comes to gifts for Godparents, so all you have to do is visit their website and see the wide range for yourself. You might like to give them a Godparent Thank You candle, which comes inscribed with a message – the perfect Godparent gifts which will be treasured for years to come.
Born Gifted have built up an enviable reputation when it comes to choosing any kind of present. Whatever you are looking for, from baptism presents, personalised baby gifts, first birthday gift ideas or newborn baby gifts, they will have something perfect for you. However, don’t assume that Born Gifted’s forte lies only in presents for babies.
They can help you no matter what the occasion you want to celebrate. For example, if you are planning your wedding, you will want to give your Bridesmaids a present which will both thank them for helping you out on the big day and be treasured by them for many years to come.
Whatever your needs for gifts for any occasion, make Born Gifted an essential consideration.

It is a great honour to have been given the title of Godparent. The parents of baby may have been guided by God’s loving thoughts to make you that special person in their baby’s life.
Your first thoughts will be centred primarily around Godparent gifts. What do you give which will speak where words fail and sum up everything that you feel towards your newfound responsibilities?
Every baby born into the world is a fresh new thought of God, so it is worth breathing some new ideas into perfect baby gifts for a Godchild. Whatever you choose, ensure that the present will withstand the test of time and remain a treasured memory of this symbolic day.
Christening gifts date back to biblical times when the three Magi offered baby Jesus Gold and Myrrh. Today, gifts for Godparents symbolise a future of honouring and loving God.
For that extra touch of Je’ne sais quoi, why not top all other Godparent presents with an antique christening gift?
These are charming, exquisite and lasting heirlooms which can be handed down throughout the generations. Choose from pewter angels to watch over baby, bedtime story books which carry the spirit of many peaceful nights or a silver christening cup to represent the cup of life.
Many antique pieces stem from the nineteenth century and were made by prestigious silversmiths. However, double check before purchasing that items are not monogrammed with the initials of the previous owner.

Asking a friend or a relative to be your child’s godparent is a decision you have to be absolutely certain about. Godparents play a huge role in your children’s lives so you want to make sure that you trust the person you have offered this job to.
The godparent is the person who will stand next to you while your baby is being christened and will be there for your child if anything happens to you. This is a major responsibility for a godparent to have to carry and so it is important that you remember to thank the person for fulfilling this role.
You can show your appreciation in a number of ways. You can tell the person ‘thank you’ or write them a letter expressing your gratitude. You could also do something special for them or return the favour by being their children’s godparents.
Godparent gifts are an even better way of saying thank you. Godparent gifts are something that reminds them of that special day they took on the responsibility of godparent. When choosing godparent gifts, remember that it does not have to be flashy or expensive. It is something that has sentimental value and therefore it is not necessary for you to spend a fortune.
Here at Born Gifted, we stock a selection of various godparent tokens in either silver or glass. You will be able to find these tokens in square or heart shapes. They make perfect godparent gifts because they are so meaningful. Candles, vases and mugs also make great godparent gifts.
