    How much money do you give for a Christening?

    Of course, many people like to give money as a gift, which can be put towards a savings bond or the child’s college fund. The amount of money given for baptism can vary depending on your relationship with the family if you are the godparent, and what your budget is. Some people may give a small token amount of $20-$50, while others may give a larger sum of $100 or more.

    It is important to consider what you can comfortably afford and what is appropriate for your relationship with the family. If you are unsure, it is always best to ask friends or family what others typically give for similar occasions.
