So, as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we believe that children can choose to become members of our church at the age of accountability which is eight years old. My son, Tim, made the decision to be baptized and we wanted to make sure he understood the significance of this decision. These baptism gift tags explain in a fun way what he is committing to do. Check it out.

Gather your gift basket supplies
You can make the basket as elaborate or as simple as you would like. Each of the tags corresponds with a specific item in the basket as follows:
- Pack of gum = Chews the right
- Gummie Life Savers = You can be a life save when you serve others
- Gummy Bears = Don’t forget to bear the name of Jesus Christ
- Pillow case or pillow = Pray every time your head hits the pillow
- Bookmark or scriptures = Read your scriptures every day
- Erasers = You can always repent and erase your mistakes
- Blanket = The Holy Ghost can comfort you like a warm blanket
- Flashlight = Let the Holy Ghost light the way in your life
- Swedish Fish = You are o-fish-ally a member of the church
- Powdered donuts = Donut forget to pray
- Scripture marking pens = Scriptures can be remarkable in your life
- Pop Rocks = Getting baptized rocks
Assemble your gift basket
Cut out each of the gift tags with a paper cutter or scissors. Then punch a hole in each one. I wrapped a yellow ribbon around each gift and then attached the baptism gift tags to each one.
My son was super excited to see the variety of gifts in the basket. He couldn’t believe everything in the basket was for him.
I added some crumpled tissue paper to the bottom of a cute basket and then added all of the different gifts. I gave my son the basket right before his baptism and read each tag to him. He loved it.
Tim’s baptism ended up being so memorable. I know he felt so special that day and I am so proud of him for making this important decision.
