DH and I have 5 god children between us, and its been different for all...

If I buy a cross I always buy and adult cross. I want something they can grow with.
I have bought the outfit for christening day
Cross to hang in their room
Name bracelet
money
precious moments type figurine

For all of my godchildren, I gave them their crosses. I asked the parents first to make sure no one else planned on getting them. In some traditions, I know the godmother gets the christening gown. Do you know if they have any traditions? It may answer your question for you.

My nephew who is also my godson I bought the outfit, his cross and paid for most of the party.

My goddaughter/cross and outfit and $300 (friends)
My godson/ cross and $500 (family)

Hubby has a GD and we got her outfit and the cross and I cant remember how much we gave (I am guessing it was closer to $500 since it was one of his really good friends)

I gave my godson a cross with a christening prayer on it, and had "God Bless (his name)" engraved on the back. I also gave him a check.
