Being a godparent is a big deal. It’s a special role in which you take on the responsibility of helping guide and mentor your godkids to grow up to be the best they can be, and it’s a huge responsibility.
As such, the relationship between you and your godparents is a special one that deserves to be celebrated and acknowledged. So whether you’re asking someone to take on the role of godparent for your newborn baby or are looking for a present to show how much you love and appreciate your own godparent, here are some great sentimental gifts that’ll show just how much you love and appreciate the important role that they have played in your life.
