A growing trend is to uniquely ask your child’s potential Godparents to take on this special duty. Godparent Proposal ideas can range from a simple card or poem to a larger Godparent proposal gift.
There is no need to go overboard, but it is nice to ask in a special way, as this is a great life moment to commemorate.
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.
A good rule of thumb is to select two people that:
1. 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.
They should be people you trust completely.
2. Share the same Religion. Some Religions allow you to select one Godparent in the same religion and one not.
In the end, it is easier and probably more comfortable to have Godparents who share the same Religion and beliefs. But either option is fine.
3. 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?
Do they have any skeletons in their closet you wouldn’t want your child to know? Make sure you think through these questions before asking anyone.
