Gifts for Ninong and Ninang at Baptism
Looking for baptism giveaways for your ninong and ninang?
When people put forth godparent gift ideas, they tend to suggest items that are purely decorative: little porcelain figurines, for instance, or potpourri vases embellished with ribbons. But shouldn’t the gifts for ninongs and ninangs be of more practical worth? The godparent-godchild relation is one that should be more than ornamental, you see. Why shouldn’t the tokens we give to commemorate it be the same?
Perhaps one of the very best tokens for such a purpose is the customized pen. This is not your average, cheap plastic, disposable ballpoint unit. Rather, we’re talking about a luxury pen made of quality materials, made to last for a literal lifetime. Just like the godparent-godchild relationship, these pens endure throughout the years. And throughout those years, they remain of genuine service.
There are luxury pens too in more daring lines reflective of contemporary senses, like the Franklin Covey Nantucket.
There are even pens that meld both aesthetic styles, like Cross’s Bailey pens.
Many of these pens can also be customized by being engraved. For a godparent, a likely engraving would be the godchild’s name, for remembrance. Every time the ninong or ninang picks up that pen or uses it to write something, he or she will then have a reminder of the child he or she has sworn to guide.
