Looking for ideas for something special for my 14 year old son. His 3 month old sister is getting baptized (he never was, his dad didn't want him to be). I feel like he's feeling a little left out since she's been born. He's a sensitive, sweet, well behaved kid & I want him to know he's still just as special to me. Thanks for your thoughts! 😀

By us it is tradition to give the godchild a necklace with the holy cross for the holy communion.Maybe you could get him a necklace that will always remind him of the special day.Doesnt have to be a necklace with a cross,maybe something else on the necklace would also be nice..a little star or something that he likes.

It is sweet of you to want to do this for him. Is it not possible for him to also be baptized now? Could it not be arranged for the same time as the baby's? I think it would be special for him to have that connection. As for a gift, something that can be a reminder of the day and what it means. A special photo in a special frame? A photo book of the day?

Thank you for your great suggestions. We looked into getting him baptized as well, but he has to go through classes before he can go through the ceremony. As far as the necklace, we got him a beautiful gold cross necklace for our wedding to make sure he felt special that day.
