Selecting a God Parent

First things first, you need to select the Godparents. 

This is a big deal.

In many cultures, Godparents become second-parents and form unbreakable bonds with their Godchildren. 

It might be worthwhile to select someone who is already in your family and who lives close to help foster that bond.

How to Choose Godparents?

  • Share the same morals as you.  You want to select people who you know well and that you have seen make life choices that you agree with. 
  • Share the same Religion.  In the end, it is easier and probably more comfortable to have Godparents who share the same Religion and beliefs. But this is by no means a requirement.
  • Are good role models.  If your child sees their Godparent at a family gathering will they be respectable and kind to others?  Do they love children?

Conclusion: Godparent Proposal Gifts

No matter if you just simply ask the question, present a card or add a gift, the Godparents you have chosen will be honored. 

This special role is important for your child and the two adults you ask, but a special proposal makes it a memory everyone will cherish. 

How to ask someone to be godparents?

While there is no “official” way to ask someone to be your childs godparents, it’s an important decision and one that should be celebrated! You can give them a card, or a small present such as picture frames, mugs, or flowers to commemorate the day.
