What is an appropriate Christening gift?
Christenings are a very special occasion in a baby’s life and friends and family share in the joy. Unlike new baby gifts, christening gifts
need to be special and honor the religious nature of the affair.
If you are the Godparent, an especially nice gift is most appropriate. Many times the Godmother will provide the outfit for the baby to be christened in. Otherwise, a beautiful gold cross or christening bracelet
for a girl, or a silver cover bible for a boy would be an outstanding christening gift.
For those just attending the Christening, beautiful, soft baby blankets
make nice christening gifts, especially if they can be monogrammed with the baby’s name, a cross, and christening date. This added touch turns an average gift into a memorable heirloom. Or choose a lovable “Jesus Loves Me” lamb
monogrammed with baby’s name and Christening date. Silver frames engraved with the information of the christening also make great christening gifts because they can hold a picture of the occasion.
For the Catholic Christening, an outstanding gift would be a gemstone rosary
for boy or girl, made from exquisite components such as cats eye, freshwater pearls, and sterling silver. This christening gift is very special and will be treasured forever.
