Gifts for God Mothers
By Meredith Burgio, eHow Contributor
The role of a godmother is different depending on the expectations of the parents. Some parents choose a godmother for religious reasons such as being a spiritual mentor for their child. Others may want a godmother for their child in case something unfortunate were to happen. Either way, this role is important to the parents and often they will show their appreciation and gratitude through thoughtful gifts.
- Select a photo frame that can hold two photos. On one side you can place a picture of the godchild. Write a note or have the godchild write a note to the godmother and slip it into the other side of the frame. Make sure the note will be visible after you slip it into the frame. Another option for the second frame is to place a photo or copy of the baby's hand or footprints.
- Select just a few charms for a bracelet to begin with. At holidays or for birthdays the godchild can give her godmother another charm to add. The charms can be reminders of special events in the child's life. They can also represent memories shared between the godmother and godchild.
- A dinner is a wonderful way to say thank you to your child's godmother. You can give her a gift certificate to a nice restaurant for her and her husband or for all of you to enjoy. Make reservations or give a gift certificate to your godmother's favorite restaurant.
- Send your child's godmother a floral arrangement as a thank you. To be more creative, consider sending a cookie bouquet or other edible arrangements. She will love to receive such a sweet token of appreciation. Have the godchild make a card for the bouquet. You and your spouse should also include a note thanking her for all that she is doing for your child.
