A baby’s Christening or Baptism is a very special event in the life of the baby, it’s parents, and the whole extended family. I'm going to give you lots of ideas for giving a wonderful and unique gift to that very special child.
Look No Further for Unique Personalized Christening Gifts
Wonderful ideas for cool and unique personalized Christening and Baptism gifts for babies.
Why Give Gifts?
In many Christian denominations, Christening is the ceremony that marks the birth of a child into the family, and welcomes him into the church. In churches that practice this, it is an extremely important rite, and giving gifts is accepted and expected. By giving a gift, you show respect and love for the family and the baby. It's their special time, and everyone involved wants to acknowledge this with suitable gifts.
Usually Christening gifts are traditional, keepsake type gifts. And a lot of thought is usually put into selecting the most unique and appropriate gift. As with any baby gift, the giver has to consider what would be special and important to the parents as well.
For parents (especially Mom), it can be really exciting and special to see that new baby's name on a gift. Personalization will go a long way toward making the gift one that will always be treasured.
This precious lamb is a great example of a Christening gift. The cross is symbolic of the occasion, and the rattle inside is something that will be great for the baby. The lamb is only 5 inches tall, so it is perfect for little hands.
What Kinds of Gifts?
There are special gifts that are available to commemorate this incredibly wonderful event, and choosing one that is personalized turns the gift into an honored family treasure. . . . which is probably the goal of most people giving Christening or Baptism gifts.
The choices for these unique gifts are almost endless, but a few that seem especially appropriate are children’s personalized Bibles, personalized blessings canvas art,and picture frames personalized to commemorate the date and event. Sometime you will find just the right gift, but it's not personalized. Usually this can be easily solved with a trip to the local jewelry store, or embroidery store.
Personalized crosses or guardian angel medallions, and personalized baby rosary bracelets would also make a great gift for this occasion.
An especially nice baby blanket that was monogrammed would be a super gift, too!
Check with the parents first before giving a gift of the Christening clothing. This would be a wonderful gift for grandparents or godparents to give, but sometimes the parents want to pick out that special outfit. However, a monogrammed bib, or bonnet would be a perfect idea.
