Presenting guests with a baptism favor is not required according to etiquette but certainly does add that extra special touch to the celebration.
Favors are small tokens given to guests to express your gratitude for their attending your special occasion. They can be homemade or purchased. Having them personalized will also create a reminder of your celebration long after it's over.
Baptism and christening favors can come in many shapes and forms.
Long-lasting keepsake items, such as picture frames, can also be personalized and used as favors.
If your favors will be themed to your celebration decorations, common symbols include crosses, candles, angels, doves, and the Bible.
If a color choice is required, white is very appropriate since it represents innocence, purity and holiness.
A chocolate bar with a custom wrapper or a water bottle with a special label also make a perfect christening or baptism favor since each can be personalized and have graphics specific to the occasion as displayed above. Click on any of the pictures to see all the wrapper designs available.
You may have your own favors in mind and just need to add a custom touch to dress them up and make them a personalized baptism souvenir.
Pictured here is a precious favor box design, available in both pink and blue, that you can choose from to feature your baby's name along with the adorable cross design. Inside you can add your own favorite favor pieces.
Personalized magnets also make perfect favors of a baptism such as the ones pictured below. They can be printed with your baby's name and their baptismal date. Many adorable designs also feature your baby's photo and may even have room for a brief expression of thanks to your guests for sharing in this very special day.
