Baptism Gift Guide (The Coptic Edition)
Updated: Jan 19
Baptism gifts, especially for newborns, are usually the hardest to pick since you have already consumed all the gift ideas out there and have used all your life-long savings on gifts for the gender reveal party, baby shower (pre-baby), another baby shower aka "salat tisht" and all the parties in between for all for the same baby! It's crazy but all worth it for the very loved precious newborn. We've got to admit that we love to spoil them. So I have complied a list of gifts that I have received which I appreciated very much as a mom. I have also included the most ordered gifts asked by moms from We the Copts. Skip and scroll down to the bottom if your newly baptized one is actually an adult who is joining the Orthodox faith.
Holy Bible- bonus if personalized
Wall hanging cross
Christian themed books/toys
Cross or saints pendant or gold jewelry in general
Personalized baptism set
Church outfit or fancy dress
Fancy picture frame
For Baby Boys: Coptic Baptism Vestment
Baby Girls: Gold earrings
For Adults- Nothing is as exciting as congratulating an adult convert for baptizing into the Coptic Orthodox faith. So our perfect gift idea is a Welcome to the Faith kit that includes the following:
Personalized communion Napkin and/or Head scarf with baptism date
Pepto Bismol bottle
Taco Bell Gift card
The gift basket will give them a chuckle but they will also appreciate the invaluable items in there!
