Symbolic Baptism Gift Ideas

Plant a Tree for the Baby

This gift symbolizes growth, food, maintenance and life itself. Give the baby a tree as a baptism gift. Suitable is a fruit tree such as an apple tree to be planted in the “baby” garden. Give the tree a pot and plant with the baby’s parents or when the baby is a baby and can also help. A small child can see its tree grow and years later the child loves to watch the apples grow, harvest and eat them.

Another suitable tree is a ginkgo tree, also called the “tree of life”. Ginkgo is native to China and since ancient times has been planted in Japanese and Chinese gardens. It is now valued in many parts of the world. Because of its healing properties, the tree is associated with strength, hope and life.

A personal gift idea! Give along with a card explaining what the gift symbolizes and that it is meant to accompany the baby’s life.

Name of a Star
