I love beautiful things and I think you can't get much better than with cut and etched glass. It has a timelessness to it, whether its a small bowl, vase or a crystal cross for baptism. But not only is it a gift, it's a keepsake and one that can be part of a child's life for a long, long time.
That's why I wanted you to see the beauty of these crosses and the great gift baptismal gift ideas these make. They're beautiful, timeless and affordable. Yes, you heard me right most of these figurines are under $25 or very close to it. I've also chosen only standing crosses so they the can be featured on a shelf, tabletop or bookshelf. Of course, until the child is older it ought to be put up high!
Celebrations by Mikasa Rejoice 9-Inch Glass Crystal Cross
This is one of the most popular crystal crosses on Amazon and I can see why. It stands nice and high at 9-inches and the base is wide. The design is simple with deep cuts in the glass. And it's affordable. Of course, it's not leaded crystal, but that does not impact it's overall beauty.
Fifth Avenue 7-Inch Crystal Cross
This cross is a little small, only 7-inches tall, but it also has the simple, elegant style. One customer said she was able to put a small electric tea light under the base to light it at night. What a wonderful idea!
Crystal Clear 6-Inch Crystal Cross
The cuts on this cross are a little more intricate, but that just adds to the beauty. It stands 6-inches tall and is per to tuck in a shelf with other mementos.
Oleg Cassini 7-inch Jubilation Crystal Cross
I just love this crystal cross. It's simple and elegant. There are no deep cuts in the glass as with the others featured here. Instead, it's hand-cut glass in a flared design. Beautiful with a nice heavy base.
Precious Moments You Are A Child Of God Bisque Porcelain Cross
While this isn't a crystal cross, I had to add this one here. I'm a big fan of Precious Moments figurines and this little cross is truly "precious.' And very appropriate for a baptism gift idea. It features one of the big-eyed iconic PM characters sitting against a cross. It also features simple quote: "You are a child of God."
