Baptism - Order wonderful Gifts, Decorations and more from LOGO
Baptism is the first step into the Christian way of life and is normally celebrated in style with family and friends. Through Baptism, the child being baptised is accepted into the Christian community which traditionally takes place a few weeks after birth. For this occasion, friends and relatives want to congratulate the new arrival with small gifts for the Baptism and welcome them to the congregation. You'll find a wide range of wonderful gifts for Baptism from LOGO, accompanied with creative inspirations for Church Services, decorations and more.
Baptism - The first Christian Sacrament in Life
The origin of the Christian Baptism lies in the New Testament. There, it is a symbol for conversion (repentance) and the forgiving of one's sins. In the Church, the significance is carried forward. Baptism is the commitment to Christian life. Through Baptism the child is accepted into the Christian community.
As children are baptised, parents and godparents represent the child and vow to raise them according to Christian values. In the church, through Confirmation the baptised's profession of faith is reaffirmed in memory of the Baptism and they then receive the sacrament of the Eucharist.
During the Baptism service, there are different central elements which symbolise the profession of faith to God and the forgiving of one's sins. They're typically accompanied by a reading, songs, intercessions and blessings. At the beginning of a Catholic Baptism the person being baptised receives a sign of the cross in chrism oil which represents the trinity (Father, Son & Holy Spirit). Kings and prophets were anointed with the chrism oil in biblical times. "Christus" means "the anointed", and this is where the significance of the chrism finds its origin. With the chrism oil and the symbol of the cross, it is shown that the newly baptisted person now belongs to Jesus and should share their faith.
The water also presents a further, central, visible element of the Baptism. Through the submersion in water the burial and resurrection with Jesus Christ is symbolised which is contemporarily expressed through the pouring of holy water over the head at the baptismal font. Freed from sin and as though born again, the child being baptised is laid in a white Christening robe. It represents the purity - free of sin - following the Baptism.
After this spiritual act, religious gifts are often given to the newly baptised child or to the parents at a celebration with family or the congregation afterwards. From further afield Christian cards are often sent.
What Meaning does a Baptism Candle have?
Within the frame of a Church Service for Baptisms, special candles are lit. The so-called Baptism Candles serve firstly to let the Light of Christ shine onto the new member of the congregation. They are lit from the Paschal candle through which the light of Christ is symbolically transmitted to the newly baptised. Baptism Candles are also valuable keepsakes which are supposed to accompany the faithful through their life. In this way, the candle is supposed to presented and lit again during further stages of your Christian life such as Communion, Confirmation, or Weddings. In many Catholic households this is a tradition in that the candle becomes a companion for one's faith for years to come. In our Christian Online-Shop we have a huge range of Baptism Candles for boys and girls.

Whether at the Church Service or at the celebration afterwards - with LOGO you'll also find small gifts for guests at Baptisms. Gifts for guests at Baptisms are a little thoughtful something for the guests of the newly baptised. They express the gratitude for the celebration together and should serve as a keepsake for the festivities surrounding the Baptism. Have a look for yourself which products we have in the LOGO Online-Shop that speak to you and will be a lovely gift for everyone at the Baptism.

Cards - Congratulations to the newly Baptised!
Not every present for a birth or Baptism can be given in person by friends or relatives. In these cases, Baptism cards from the LOGO Online-Shop's range are a particularly popular alternative. Get your greetings across with these cards and extend your personal thoughts, feelings and words to the newly baptised. Naturally you can use these cards as an addition to other gifts for Baptisms, to express your thoughts and well wishes. In much the same way, hand-written cards with motifs also present lovely Confirmation gifts.
Guest Books and Memory Albums for Baptisms
For the congregation and more personally for everyone involved, Baptisms are an unforgettable occasion. With a memory album and a guest book this truly special day is even easier to keep in living memory in the future. Ask your guests to immortalise the day with personal words in a book and similarly in cards to express their best wishes for newly baptised. As the baptised becomes older they'll happily look through their photo album or memory album and see first-hand how lovingly and personally they were accepted into the religious community.
