62 Memorable Latter-day Saint Baptism Gifts for Boys & Girls

A baptism is a special event in anyone’s life, child, or adult. It symbolizes a personal commitment to follow Jesus Christ and the start of a fulfilling life of devotion and service. 


As for brainstorming up the right baptism gift ideas, it might help to remember that this day is the perfect opportunity to give something a little more lasting than a new toy. A meaningful gift shows your support and helps remind the child of the warm feelings and experiences they had during this special day.

Baptism Artwork

Youth today face a myriad of clashing values and opinions. The decision they make at baptism won’t come without its challenges. Choose a memorable piece of artwork as a baptism gift to remind them of their commitment to follow the Savior. 


A small print of a portrait of Christ with children or a painting of baptism itself can easily be slipped into a backpack, used with a school planner, stuck to a mirror, or hung on the wall. You might also consider including a personal message on the back to make the gift more personal.

Baptism Gift Ideas for Teens and Adults

Not all baptisms you attend are for children. Many are for teens or adults making the same commitment. Those who decide on baptism later on in life are likely to have larger, sometimes even painful, lifestyle changes to make. It’s a courageous step that requires a lot of love and support from those around them. 


The unique thing about Christian artwork is that it continues to share its message of hope well after the day you gifted it. Here are some artistic baptism gift ideas for those who embark on the covenant path well after the age of eight.
