I am godmum to my friend's just-turned-four-year-old, who will be being baptised shortly (took them ages to find a church they agreed with, had crisis of conscience about the whole religion thing, etc, etc). Now, I am godmum to a girl who got baptised as a baby (and had my own DS baptised when he was a baby, too) but I am totally stumped about what to get an older child for this type of ceremony? Must be something not too fancy schmancy as they are very low key people (like, no silver spoons, etc) but I can't think of anything appropriately 'celebratory' that isn't just a bog-standard present idea (aka books, Thomas stuff, etc)?
Each of my children got a bible from their Godparents which was lovely. Don't know what your budget is like but DD got a Sweetie bracelet from Links of London from her Godfather (lucky girl!) I think that something for when she is older is a lovely idea. If not that then maybe a painting or print?
