Favor help! please ...

So my sons Christening is in a few weeks ...

I decided on giving Bath and Body Works soap pumps .. thinking who wouldnt use this ...

I wanted to wrap them in clear bags and attach a tag ... what clever saying can I add to the tags about soap???

(for my 1st son Christening we did caramel apples as favors and had "apple of our eye" printed on them ... )

Just thinking the tag is a cute addition ... was hoping for a cute saying to go along with it rather than just a "thank you"

Am I over thinking this too much???



Re: Favor help! please ...

  • The ONLY favors that I've ever seen at a Christening (and some don't have any at all) have been candy, a prayer card or a photo of the baby in his/her baptism outfit - which is usually just a good one for grandmas and great aunts. 

    Sorry, but I don't think there's a cute saying to bring together soap pump and a christening.  It seems very much like a Bridal Shower favor to me.  Maybe you can keep those for Xmas gifts for neighbors and friends?

    How about little baggies of blue and white M&Ms if you think you *need* a favor. 


  • I would return them if you can. Soap is a really odd favor for a baptism.
  • Gator ... you are right! i am trying to tie in soap with a Christening! HA

    I just thought it was an easy favor to get (no hassle!)

  • I'm glad you're skipping the soap.  I am one who wouldn't use them. 

    I certainly don't think you need favors, but some cross shaped cookies could do the trick.

  • Someone I know did reuseable water bottles - metal ones with the loop on top and had them designed with the baby's name, Christening and the date. They were cute and given the group, something that was going to be used.
  • Cleansed by the Lord?
    Stop sweeping it under the rug!
  • Or cookies.

    I love this.

  • Maybe there is a bible verse that says something about washing away sin?  It could work and I always love getting bath and body works.  Let us know what you come up with!
