Babies are a blessing and christening is a wonderful way for family and friends to get together to celebrate this special occasion. At this early stage of life, babies may not remember their christening but it is an incredibly important and symbolic occasion for your whole family. These occasions are often marked with gifts from family and friends however, unlike birthdays and Christmas, you should put some extra thought into your gift for a Christening.
One of the most popular christening baby gifts is a baby keepsake, something that the baby can keep to remember this special occasion. One of the most popular and affordable baby keepsakes is a photo frame. There are hundreds of options available from plain and classic to something quite religious with some inspiring verses on them. These baby gifts are ideal for christenings; a beautiful photo of the special day can be inserted and put on display as a lasting memory of this event.
Other great christening gift options are musical carousels and water globes, little ones will love playing with these as they get older and they look beautiful displayed in baby’s room. There are many popular designs and characters on the market from the traditional Beatrix Potter range, to Thomas the Tank Engine and modern Disney versions. When the baby is younger the beautiful songs and music will soothe baby to sleep and when they child gets larger they will enjoy winding them up and just listening to the music as the carousel turns or the snow falls in the water globe.
Jewellery also makes a beautiful christening baby gift that can be kept for later use. Bracelets are popular for both boys and girls and so are silver rattles and silver spoons. Other options include brooches, necklaces or earrings for a girl.
If none of these gifts seem right there are still more options. One can never go wrong with the always valued gift of money, but forget the envelope and put the money in a delightful piggy bank. A money box is also a better substitute for the paper card and envelope. The choices are endless when it comes to finding the gift that will impress and please.
A baby’s christening is a memorable occasion for the family and friends of the baby. As the family, friend, and guest, one wants to offer a gift that is just as special as the milestone being celebrated. Choosing the ideal present and further adorning it with stunning wrapping paper and topping it all off with a thoughtful gift card could not be any easier.
