My sister is the godmother of my dd and she is asking me if there is something in particular that a godmother is suppose to get for the baptism? She is getting baptised in two weeks.

I found this on google: Christening Gifts: Many people prefer a traditional gift idea for a Christening such as pewter, silver or china; these are great gifts for the child to treasure. Another nice idea is to provide a photo album or keepsake box to store precious memories of the child’s special day. For religious ceremonies it is common for a silver cross and chain or a bible to be presented to the child. Personalised gifts also make very nice ideas for this occasion, for example a framed name print, or a personalised Christening plate or mug, or perhaps an engraved tankard or cufflinks for a boy.

I always heard that the godmother is supposed to pick out and buy the christening gown.

Impatient - I think that tradition is ancient, and applies mostly to Catholics? At any rate, I think it is silly and outdated, what mom doesn't want to go pick out the outfit herself for her chiild?? My son got a name plate and my other son got a pewter engraved mug, not expensive things but nice to commemorate the event.
