I don’t know about you, but I think being a Godmother (or Godfather) is an awesome honor and amazing privilege. From the moment of being asked to take on that special role, a special connection begins to exist in a relationship that was already built upon love.
Whether you just became a Godparent or you have been one for a long time, there are gifts available for your Godchildren of every age and stage.
Godparent gifts for Babies and Toddlers
One of my favorite gifts for a truly awesome price – A Decade Rosary Chew!
Made by Little Praying Hands these RosaryRingChews are a sized up silicone version of a rosary ring. They are perfect for little hands to hold and a great way to introduce our little ones to an important part of our Catholic Faith while being soft and soothing to teething gums.
These teethers are 4.5 inches in length and have a 3.5 inch diameter. RosaryRingChews are made of 100% Food Grade Silicone and are BPA and Lead free.
Chews Life teething necklaces (for mom), teething rosaries and cute toddler bracelets!
The first product I recommend from Chews Life is the Saint Benedict Mini Decade Rosary.
A few years ago a friend of mine with a very young daughter was separated from her husband. She wanted to send her daughter with a Saint Benedict medal to help ease her mind while they were apart, but feared sending something her daughter could choke on – so a real medal was out of the question. I searched and searched for one for her and didn’t find one until I found ChewsLife products. This is a great gift for a mom heading back to work after maternity leave or for a situation like my friend’s. Since it took me a while to find a Saint Benedict medal safe for my friend’s daughter, I ended up purchasing her, my daughter and my niece a safe, adorable Saint Benedict bracelet!
Chews Life has gifts for baby, toddler and Mama!
They include pacifier clips, full rosaries, decade rosaries, necklaces for mom (my twins loved pulling on and chewing my necklaces – these are genius products!). I love that the necklaces come with a Miraculous Medal that is safe for baby to put in his or her mouth!
Godparent gifts for Boys
A Stainless Steel Money Clip (with a St. Benedict or Miraculous Medal) with money inside it. When boys grow out of the Lego age they might be a little more difficult to shop for. I think most of us loved getting the gift of money when we were younger – this money clip gives it a much more meaningful spin and perhaps even more if you have it blessed too.
*** Gift giving tip – “layer” your gifts. Don’t just give one item. There’s a chance you thought one thing would be a big hit, and if it’s not, having several presents within the gift will keep the whole experience positive and uplifting ****
A Play Mass Kit or Saint Blocks!
Almond Rod toys has a beautiful wooden Mass kit. My son received it as a Christmas gift and it was definitely a favorite!

Godparent gifts for Girls
The following suggestions are not only beautiful, but did you know Our Lady promised to send extra graces to anyone who wears her Miraculous Medal around his or her neck??? Not only will your Goddaughter love this gift, you will also help her receive extra graces from Our Blessed Mother! (see more info here: Five Reasons Why I Wear a Miraculous Medal . . .)
Young girls who are just starting to wear jewelry and enjoy playing dress up will absolutely love SaongJai’s Catholic Girls’ Pearls Miraculous Medal necklace.
SaongJai also makes a cord style Miraculous Medal & Crucifix Silicone Cord Necklace with Heart Bead and
As I write this, it looks like there is only one left. But, remember, many shops on Etsy take custom orders, so if you go order one and it is out of stock, simply inbox the shop owner and ask if they are taking custom orders!
For Tweens and Teens:
I love a simple gold Miraculous Medal necklace. This one I found on Etsy is totally my personal style (simple) and has some great reviews: Miraculous Medal necklace
For the more stylish, trendy, jewelry loving teen, I strongly suggest these two necklaces from Pink Salt Riot!

If you are shopping for a young girl who loves crafting or making things on her own – or if you have a personal devotion to wearing a brown scapular, I recommend this really cute Scapular Kit
Be Yourself: A Journal for Catholic Girls
This summer, Be Yourself: a journal for Catholic Girls was a number 1 new release on Amazon!
I love the reviews being left on Amazon! Here are two out of the more than 30 that have been left!
The book looked so good to me that I bought it, even though it’s been a very long time since I’ve been a “girl”. This is a great book for girls and women of all ages! I’m so happy with it!!!Karen Y.
I gave this to my tween daughter for Easter. She is really enjoying it! She keeps remarking that she likes how positive the examples are in quizzes like “truth or dare” or “would you rather.” I also had given this to my 13 year old niece (my goddaughter) who isn’t being raised in a religious household. I asked her if she would recommend it for other girls and she said yes! I think it’s the kind of journal that girls this age enjoy!
Godparent gifts for a group of children or for a family
The Catholic Children’s Bible, Revised (hardcover)
asked friends in a Facebook group to give me some feedback about:
“a gift you were once given that really tugged your heart strings or truly encouraged you to pray more. . .”
and one woman responded
“We received this Bible for Christmas two years ago. It has helped our entire family pray more!
And don’t forget to save the environment (God’s creation) with one of these re-usable bags!!!
