Nung binyag ng baby ko I gave three (1 candle, 1 baby bottle w/candies inside, & baby booties w/ hand sanitizer inside). I put it all in a gift bag with thank y0u tag for the godparents. Sa mga guests only the booty and the baby bottle lang.

I'm planning to give Swarovski pens to my son's 12 godparents. Ok lang kaya pens? At this day and age, people still use pens right?  ;D
Hirap magisip eh...

for my daughters baptism, i gave 4" cake to each godparent. then on her 1st bday naman, i gave each one of them a basket of giant cookie lollies :) for me, it's important to give the godparents some token no matter how big or small it is. it's for them feel extra special :)
Thank You Lord for my beautiful little princess Lorraine Janelle:)

@ sis princess lorraine, i agree... it's important to make the godparents feel special :)

i bought 18 Swarovski pens na yesterday and i just love them! 18 pala godparents ni baby, but 12 lang present during the baptism. just the same, i have to send the tokens to those who are not around. i hope magustuhan nila. I'd be very happy to receive one, kasi I won't buy this pen for myself, hehe!

You guys might want to consider giving out little devils from the chocolate kiss cafe. They're mini cakes which are really yummy and they come in realy nice looking boxes. They only cost P980 for a dozen. Super naging hit kasi too when we served them as additional deserts to our guests last sunday for my baby's baptism. As in so many people asked about them and even brought the, home. Wala tuloy kaming nauwi for us. Pero okay na rin coz at least alam kong nagustuhan nila yon.  ;D

how about a personalized set of blank cards?  these are practical items that your ninongs and ninangs will use.  there are reasonable priced ones in gift packaging... pwede pa i-personalized with your ninong and ninang's names... with coordinating colors pa sa motif ng party. :)  may alam ako pero hindi pwede mag-advertise dito sa thread. ;)

For my baby's upcoming baptism and 1st birthday party, I will be giving personalized business card holders to the ninong and personalized mirrors to the ninangs. I really wanted a personalized token for the godparents and fortunately I found this page in multiply who makes handmade polymer clay stuff.  Di bale superman ang theme ng party ng baby ko so I asked them to create superman-themed business card holders (parang business attire na ni-rip off to reveal the superman logo) and superman-themed mirrors (superman logo tapos merong lipstick), each having the name of each ninong and ninang (ex., Super Ninong John, Super Ninang Jean).

i need your inputs sisses. which one is better for the ninongs/ninangs

a. pendant-type watch + crystal cross both attached to a key chain (in box)
b. personalized perfume / sanitizer
c. cupcakes (homemade lang. mahilig kase ako mag bake pero i don't sell. for family and friends lang usually)

and how about sa ibang visitors? should they get the same items with that given to the ninong/ninang? or kahet ano lang? any suggestions?

Hand sanitizers and wipes.

I'd give something that's useable.
