What gifts are given for Christening/Baptism of infants?

Asked by hearkat (22172 points ) 2 months ago from iPhone

A friend’s baby will be baptized this weekend, and we’ve been invited. When my son was born in the early ‘90’s, people gave U.S. Savings Bonds, but since the economy is still tanked, I don’t see that as being the nice present it once was. What is a modern version of that?

We’ve already given them stuff at the baby shower, and they have everything they need to care for an infant. I like what bonds represented – a gift for the child’s future. What is a recession-proof alternative to bonds?
