Being chosen as a godchild is a special honor indeed. And it’s perfectly natural if you want gift your godchild something special. However, if you’re confused about what to get them, then here are a few suggestions for you…

Something cute and fluffy Let’s start with the easiest gift suggestion we have for you; something cute and fluffy. It could be soft toys; one of those classic gift suggestions. A good alternative for that would be clutch toys; perfectly suitable for the little fists of infants. But apart from that, you can also opt for baby blankets, cute baby diaper bags, a few knitted hats (in a variety of colors) or or even those little booties. It does pay to remember that babies tend to grow out of their clothes and shoes pretty fast; so they might not get to enjoy your gift for long.

Help the tot make a fashion statement Who doesn’t like to be fashionable? Introduce your new godchild to the world of fashion by getting them trendy clothes. If you don’t want to simply grab a few dresses off the rack, and you have the talent for knitting, crocheting or stitching, make the dresses yourself. Of course, if you’re really busy, this might not be the greatest suggestion for you. however, if you still want it to be unique, try finding handmade baby clothes online; not only will you get to choose something that has not been remade a hundred times, you could also get it personalized.

Something that will help them grow smarter Admittedly, as an infant, your little godchild is not going to be doing a lot of learning. It’s going to take him at least 2 years to learn to turn over, and around 3 months to be able to firmly grasp toys like rattles in his little fists. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get them “educational” gifts that will help them learn or grow. And though it may not be as personal as getting them handmade perfect baby girl dresses, baby gyms are great to keep the little one occupied and also get them to stretch their little bodies a little. If you’re not looking for something to “teach” them, then teething toys can also be a fun gift to shop for…

A gift that can grow into their future And no, for this moment at least, we are not talking about getting them a puppynot just yet! But if you want something that will grow with them into the future, consider planting a tree (or several, at one of those forest re-growing projects); make the world they will be living in a little better. Setting up a savings account for them, or investing on something like gold too (if you have the means for it, of course) can be great options for a gift to a godchild.
