Baptism Gifts for Boys

Baptism is an important event. It is when an individual decides to take the first step down the path of following Jesus Christ. Celebrate this special day with a gift that will be meaningful and lasting.


Here are a few ideas to get you started. You might consider creating a package, such as pairing a matching poster with a puzzle or getting a bookmark to go with a new set of scriptures.

Baptism Gifts for Boys: Artwork

In general, religious artwork is not typically high on a young boy’s birthday wish list. However, baptism is a special opportunity for children and adults alike to feel God’s light. A relatable piece of artwork can help remind your loved one of the significance of this special day long after the initial birthday excitement fades.

Baptism Gifts for Boys: Puzzles

Puzzles are both fun and gospel related, making them great baptism gifts for boys. These LDS art puzzles give children and adults alike a chance to focus on the art and it’s message as they work to complete it. These are two of our puzzles we think would fit best for a young boy’s baptism.

Fear Not 100 Piece Puzzle

This is a warm, encouraging puzzle both in color and message. Artists Kelsy and Jesse said about this piece:


“This mortal world is an experience away from home. We will experience some of our hardest moments of existence while in this place between chaos and order. But we are never alone. Remembering who to call upon in such times can have momentous power over such feelings. Look to Isaiah’s promise and fear not, he is with us; be not dismayed. He is our God! He will strengthen us, He will help us, He will uphold us with His right hand of righteousness.”


Baptism marks the beginning of the journey of discipleship. Help children and youth remember that they never walk it alone.

Tree of Life 100 Piece Puzzle

Jorge’s painting is a reminder of what awaits us as we do our best to follow Jesus Christ. It allows us to experience God’s love and to receive something deeper and more fulfilling than we would ever be able to find wandering on our own. 


This puzzle is a colorful, visually interesting depiction of a family standing at the tree of life. The tree glows against the dark river and the great and spacious building on either side, serving as a reminder of what path ultimately brings the most light into our lives.

Baptism Gifts for Boys: Posters

Children today are bombarded with contradicting messages through school, entertainment, and friends. Give them a simple reminder of what matters most. LDS art posters of Jesus, Joseph Smith, Moroni, or Nephi are inspiring baptism gifts for boys.
