Essential Tips for Choosing And Writing A Baptism Thank You Card
By: Geraldine Jozefiak

Choosing and writing a Baptism Thank You card has never been more difficult. The days of the plain baptism thank you card are numbered. They've been overtaken by an array of colorful, and personalized cards that help us show appreciation for the kindness shared on our baby's special day.

Now you can, if you choose have your own photograph of baby immortalized on individual Baptism Thank You cards. Various companies allow you to add Baptism details along with a choice of other embellishments.

Personalized cards though aren't everyone's choice. Some of us still resort to the old-fashioned' pen and paper letter writing route. Whilst this of course is still a great option, you may like to choose some special textured paper on which to share your gratitude for gifts received. It's a joy to write on special paper, especially as it is paper selected especially for this one occasion.

Don't forget to buy sufficient paper and matching envelopes for your needs. Some of us write 'large' so you may find yourself using two sheets. That's even more likely if you chose small sized paper.

If you've a creative streak you may prefer to make your own special handmade thank you cards. This would really give you a chance to be inventive. If you've got the time, this is a great idea. You could personalize some bought cards with your own touch of ribbon or bow etc.

Thank you cards for baby's Baptism or Naming Day may be one time when you want to 'push the boat out'. What kind of special card could you choose or create that would help you celebrate the day?

The event is certainly a notable one in yours, your baby's, and the larger family group's memory. Marking the occasion with some well-chosen cards will be something that you can all look back on in the years to come.

It's worth spending a bit of time looking around at what's available so as not to limit your options. Don't be tempted to rush for the bog standard' off-the-shelf pre-package, unless that of course suits your budget, and your emotions. Think about the part the thank you card plays in rounding off' the special event
in your lives.

Whilst it is you the parent writing the cards, you do so on behalf of your little one. As such, you're building his/her relationship with those who have given gifts. Baptism Thank You Card wording is equally important.

As you're building his/her standing within your family community, your choice of the right Baptism - or Christening Thank You Card (as it's also known) is worth a longer look.

Once you've got your card, choosing the appropriate Baptism Thank You Card wording can often prove a challenge. This is especially so for first time parents keen to do things right'.

Religious etiquette suggests that baptism thank you cards should be sent no more than two weeks after the ceremony or service. As it's customary to give gifts on these important occasions you may have a number of thank you cards to write.

If you haven't already done so, it's a good idea to make a list of who has given you what. That way you can be specific and personal in thanking people for their kind thoughts and presents.

Mention the gift itself, how you and your baby are enjoying it and using it, or how they will use it in the future (if it is a gift for a later stage in life). You may mention how lovely it was to see them at the baptism itself if they were able to attend.

Those who haven't chosen personalized photo card often attach a photo to their card or letter.

If you have some idea how much you might write before hand then this could affect the size of card you choose. Your handwriting may be exuberant and large, requiring more space than someone who writes small. Thinking about this early on is always a good idea.

Finally, when you sign off, add all your names, you, your partner's and of course baby's. Everyone loves to see baby's name on the card, and as proud parents, it gives you another chance to write baby's name!

It's also wise to order your Baptism Thank You cards or Christening Thank you Cards along with the Birth Announcement and Baptism Cards to ensure a continuity of design style.

Christening Gifts for Grandsons

For religious families that celebrate the ritual, a baby's christening can be a special day for friends and family to come together. Naturally, most grandparents want to be a big part of the festivities and spoil their little bundle of joy with gifts. With so many cute and frilly girls' items on the market, it can sometimes be hard to buy specifically for boys, but there are plenty of precious options available to celebrate your special little grandson.

Christening Gown

By providing the christening gown, grandparents can feel like they are an integral part of the christening ceremony. Before going out and buying a traditional white gown, though, check with the parents of the child to make sure that they aren't already planning to use a family heirloom from the other side of the family. They may also not wish to use a traditional gown at all, in which case you can offer to buy a suitable, more modern outfit. Either way, it is best to respect their wishes. If they do give you the go-ahead, however, the gown is a good way to present the baby with something that will last as a keepsake for the rest of his life.

Religious Items

Since a christening is by definition a religious ceremony, this is a rare occasion where it is always appropriate to give a religious-themed gift. A cross with your grandson's name and the christening date inscribed on it is a nice choice. There are also some cute and boy-appropriate jewelry items available including child-sized rosaries or tiny silver crosses that can be saved for when the boy is older. A plaque with a religious saying or a short prayer that can be hung in the child's room would also be appropriate. If the child's godparents are not giving him a Bible as a gift, a nice leather-bound Bible is another option to consider.

Personalized Memories

Christening gifts are often meant to serve as a way to preserve the memory of the ceremony for the child, who is obviously too young to remember it himself. As a grandparent, this aspect of gift giving is probably particularly important to you. Many grandparents choose to give gifts like silver-plated picture frames, inscribed with details about the christening. There are also companies that will make pieces of art, personalized with your grandson's name and christening date. If you want to give a special gift that will also save the child's parents some time and work, offer to put together a special photo album or scrapbook commemorating the event.

Fun Gifts

In addition to a gift that acts like a keepsake, some grandparents also want to give their precious grandson a special toy or a gift that he can play with immediately. Fun ideas for christening gifts include little teddy bears, cute personalized T-shirts, or if you want to be more traditional, silver-plated baby rattles. You can also buy a child's storybook that tells a story that is highlighted by Christian beliefs.
