    A student of mine (we teach at a Catholic school) is getting Baptized this Sunday which is very special. :) I have no children of my own (yet!), but wish to get her something special for her Baptism. Would a book of Bible stories be OK? Or a children's CD of Bible stories/songs? Or should I get her something more special? Her mother has been VERY supportive/helpful to me this year so I want to get her something very special. Please let me know what you think!!

    PS. Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but I have been wracking brain about what to get this child!!

    I usually use this more for graduation, but how about a copy of Dr Seuss's "Oh, the Places You'll Go?" She can probably get through most of the words, it won't break your bank, and you could include a nice inscription about her journey through her faith.

    Do you have any Catholic Supply Stores nearby? They usually have small token gifts that you could give also. A nice card with a hearfelt note and something small would be appropriate. I collect Precious Moments Figurines... some people dont like them, but that would be a nice gift.

    Precious Momemnts figurines are wonderful. Otherwise, a chain and cross would be nice.

    Necklace with a dove on it
    Snow globe music box(my daughter got one for confirmation with a beautiful figure of Jesus in it walking on water and it plays Amazing Grace) It is beautiful. (I collect music boxes, so I guess I'm partial :) )
