Hi, everyone! My name is Gretchen Gatan and I’m a writer and editor based in Metro Manila. Since my husband Cayo and I are planning our daughter’s intimate baptismal celebration already, I thought about compiling baptism giveaways for Ninong and Ninang! These are some ideas I had that you might be able to take inspiration from. When it comes to quality and reliability, I can definitely vouch for these local brands because I’ve tried ordering from them already.
11 Baptism Giveaways for Ninong and Ninang
First on the list is Istorya. I’m a huge fan of this local brand. Apart from ordering Christmas gifts from them for family and friends, Cayo and I ordered custom jewelry from Istorya to give our female entourage during our wedding. They have necklaces, lockets, bracelets, keychains, bag tags, and more that you can have customized to give to your baby’s godparents. These are made of high-grade brass, copper, and aluminum metals. So they’re guaranteed to last a lifetime.
2. Myriad Print Concepts
Second on the list is Myriad Print Concepts, another suki of mine. I’ve ordered so many custom things from them throughout the years. These include pouches, wine glasses, and whiskey glasses. In addition, they can customize tumblers, mugs, shirts, bags, and many more!
3. Habi MNL
Up next is Habi MNL. I recently ordered my Christmas gifts from them! They make quality leather goods like cable organizers and key chains. They have super affordable rates, too. You can choose from different types of leather depending on your budget. Some leather types come in a variety of colors as well. This is a nice and practical baptism giveaway for Ninongs and Ninangs!
4. KO Patissier
Another practical gift idea would be food! Your baby’s godparents can consume it right away and not have to worry about where to store the gift after. One option would be these beautiful (and yummy!) premium chocolate bonbons by KO Patissier. They can even customize the box for you!
5. Black Coffee PH
If your baby’s Ninongs and Ninangs are coffee lovers, you can order local blends from Black Coffee PH. We ordered our wedding giveaways from them. They came in small pouches with three drip sachets of our favorite blends. Black Coffee PH even customized it so that it would have our wedding’s colors and logo!
7. Mama Jessie’s Kesong Puti
Here’s something to pair with Black Coffee PH—Mama Jessie’s Kesong Puti! Full disclaimer: my mom owns this small business. She’s been making the best kesong puti in Metro Manila since 2000. She can prettify the packaging for you by adding ribbons in the color scheme of your baby’s baptismal celebration!
8. Something Different Bakeshop
Still on the topic of food, Something Different Bakeshop has been around for quite some time now. They’re known for their empanadas but they also have jars of pastries and goodies like Sans Rival Cookies, Palmiers, and Lenguas. These are classics that any godparent will enjoy.
9. Papel et Al
If your baby’s godparents love stationery as I do, then you can’t go wrong with Papel et Al‘s paper products. The designs are so timeless. You can choose from note cards, gift cards, and even money envelopes! Moreover, there are many gender-neutral designs fit for both Ninongs and Ninangs.
10. SamTing Personalized PH
One thing I love about SamTing Personalized PH is that when I ordered custom hand soap from them, it came wrapped in buri packaging already. They’re quite popular among couples getting married as I’ve seen so many wedding giveaway orders on their Instagram feed.
11. Katzen PH
Last but not least is Katzen PH. A few years back, I ordered custom cheese boards from them. Since then, they’ve added more products to their lineup. They can even engrave photos on wood!
Baptism Giveaway Ideas for Ninong and Ninang
I hope this list helps you prepare for your baby’s baptismal celebration. Meanwhile, we’re still undecided on what to give. I want it to be really personal and to represent our baby girl, Cambria, really well. So for now, we’ll keep brainstorming!
UPDATE as of March 2022: We ended up giving personalized Parker Pens to Cambria’s godparents.
