To write a thank you note for the gift of being the child's godparent or babysitter, thank the person specifically and mention how much her contribution means to you. Send notes to those who presided over the christening, such as a pastor or priest, and any event organizers, speakers or altar boys and girls who participated in the event. Thank each person for her time, and mention any specific thing she did that made the day better.

Consider including a photograph in the note. Choose an image from the christening ceremony or party afterward if you only want to print one image for all of the thank you notes. If you have time, choose an individual photo for each note that includes your baby and the person to whom the note is addressed. Write "Thank You," the name of the baby and the date on the back of the photo before inserting it into the card.
