There isn’t a much more joyous occasion than a new baby christening, and the baby christening gifts usually reflect that. Sometimes it’s difficult to decide what you should give for this event as the baby is too little to know what you’re giving, and the parents have probably already received what they need from shower gifts. However, there are several memorable gifts you can present for this occasion.
Personalized baby christening gifts are always welcome as the parents put those on display or pack them away to keep for when the baby is older. Things such as engraved silver baby cups, rattlers, and spoons are all thoughtful commemorative gifts. By engraving the baby’s name and birthdate on these items, they become very special during the years to come.
A member of the family may request to provide the christening outfit which is traditionally a long white gown with a bonnet. This is true whether the baby is a girl or a boy, although there are now many types of christening outfits geared towards boys. It’s a very special gift and is packed away following the christening to save for future babies to use.
Many times someone will choose to buy a personalized Bible for the baby. The idea is that the baby will be able to use this when he or she is older. It’s a very special gift that can last a lifetime. Personalizing it with the baby’s name makes it even more special.
Anything that can be monogrammed or engraved is perfect to present as baby christening gifts. These include such things as christening blankets, keepsake crosses, bibs, or collectible feeding sets. Others may choose to use their craft gifts to make something for the baby. A baby quilt with the baby’s name and birthdate worked into it is something that can be cared for and passed down to a grandchild later in life.
Basically, anything that holds special meaning for the baby’s family and will be meaningful for the child as he or she grows up is perfect to give as a baby christening gift. If you’re having difficulties deciding which gift is best, simply look into your heart and you’ll know what gift will work best coming from you.
