Hi Folks,

My daughter shall be Baptised soon (the end of September).

We are having a reception at the end of the Ceremony, and would like to have 'thank you favours' for the guests to take home when leaving. Problem is, almost no one that will be attending is of any faith and are all non-believers in God. Does anyone have any ideas on small favours we can give in memory for this special occasion? I don't want to give anything that seems like I am forcing my beliefs on anyone or being 'pushy', as I don't think my partners parents are very excited I'm having Haylee Baptised. Any ideas are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

You can buy small metalic picture frames and put Haylee's photo in her baptismal outfit in them. And attach a little 'thank you' note or card. The people might not be believers but the fact that they're even attending the baptism (to me) means they still respect your choice and still love you and care about you. So you don't have to make the gift completely nuetral, in my opinion.

I agree with Julia here.

One thing you could do is tie up a bag of mints and attach a note or card that says "Thanks for coming" and also a quote from Scripture... you could find something that is meaningful to the Baptism but not in-your-face.

Congrats on your daughter's Baptism!
