Some follow the tradition of buying the baby their outfit for the day. Not sure if they have one already. My baby's godmother got her a white gold necklace and cross, a white cross bib to wear, and shoes (she had a dress already). Godfather gave money.
I got a really nice engraved snowglobe from someone. It was from Things Remembered.
Our DD's Godfather got her a rosary and a crib cross (cross to hang above the crib with a blessing inscribed on it). Her Godmother got her a Baptism angel that she found at a Christian bookstore.
As a godmother I gave a gold cross and chain to my niece. For my nephew, whose family is less religious and less traditional I had blanket made with his name on it. My DH is godfather to our nephew and we gave him a tiffany's children's spoon with his initials on it. I don't think they use it, even though that was the point.
Even though I'm a godmother twice over, I'm not religious and wouldn't give a bible as a gift. The cross necklace was as far as I'd go.
