Baby's Christening Gift that will always work
We’ve gathered together the best Christening gift ideas to help you decide what to get for your cherished little one.
1. Bible Story Board Books
Whether it’s a baby boy or girl, it’s never too early to introduce them to the words of the Bible. And what better way to do that than by giving them a children’s Bible? Each one features a series of simple sentences that are accompanied by cute and engaging illustrations that will surely catch the attention of the little baby.
2. Personalized Embroidered Baby Outfits
Babies grow lots in the first year of life, and they need lots of clothes that are comfortable. So buying clothes for new parents is always useful. Whether you opt for practical clothes or fancy clothes, make sure that the clothes you buy are of good quality and that they will look good when they are worn.
La Maison du Monogramme’s customized baby clothes are one of our top picks because it’s timeless, and will no doubt be cherished for years to come. The soft and comfy outfits can be personalized with the baby’s name using chic and gorgeous embroidery.
Jewelry is a classic christening gift for baby girls. With options from earrings to bracelets, there are plenty of great jewelry gifts to choose from. Just remember to make sure that it’s safe for the baby to wear, and it doesn’t include any dangerous pieces that could be considered a hazard (e.g., dangling parts, tiny beads, etc.). Although the baby will eventually grow out of it before too long, they can still keep it tucked away until the time has come for their own daughter to get baptized.
4. A Memory Book
Keeping track of every baby milestone is as important as getting them the best gift. With a memory book, parents can record their baby’s development by adding pictures and writing down journal entries. It’s a fun way to record all the important milestones the baby has attained so that they will have something to look back on in the years to come.
5. Keepsake Boxes
One fabulous idea you could do with keepsake boxes is turning them into beautiful little time capsules! You can personalize them with a name, a favorite picture, or even a loving message. You can even put a tiny ornament inside the box to make it look like a real treasure.
6. Blessings Jar
Embrace the joy of the baby’s life by giving them a jar full of blessings and allowing them to remember those who have blessed them.
A cute ceramic jar is perfect for storing precious memories from a baby’s christening. Everyone can write a short little note of blessing for the baby and leave it in the jar for the baby to read when they’re grown up. The baby may never be able to remember what happened that day, but the precious messages inside the jar will help them remember that you love them.
Being invited to a christening ceremony means that you get to experience a special part of someone’s life. You can give the baby a few useful gifts that you know they’ll treasure for many years to come. But remember that it’s the thought that goes into each gift that really matters.
