    Giving gifts to someone that is baptized is not a standard practice, but I think giving a personalized Bible to your wife is great. It will be a tool for her to use in her walk with Christ. Who could think anything was wrong with that?

    A personalized Bible would be nice as would be a necklace with the birthstone of the month she was baptized in. :) A woman always loves jewelry!

    A personalized, higher end Bible would be very thoughtful. Something from actual leather with quality paper and such. That is thoughtful of you.

    +1, you might want to check with your church first. A number of churches that I've been in gift a bible when someone gets baptized. If your church does that it might be nice to give a nice cross necklace or charm bracelet from James Avery or something.
