Baptisms and Christenings are a very important day in the whole family’s life, especially the newborn baby. If you have been invited to one, it is tradition to bring a gift to commemorate the special day. But, it’s hard knowing what to bring for a baby as a thank you for allowing you to be part of the blessed day. This guide will help you pick the perfect gift.

Christening and Baptism Outfits

While a Christening or baptism gown is most often bought by the baby’s parents, it can be a costly purchase, and can, therefore, make a great gift for the new parents. The expense of such an occasion may be a bit of a burden, so, taking the weight of the baby’s parent’s shoulders is a great offering, and this is a gift that could be given from grandparents, godparents, and other immediate family members. Remember to purchase a gown in advance and let the parents know you will be doing so. Usually, the outfit is white. You can purchase baby gifts online for convenience.

Keepsake Gifts

Christenings are a joyous occasion and can be remembered fondly with keepsake gifts, such as jewelry, keepsake boxes, personalized baby blankets, pewter birth certificate holders, piggy banks, commemorative pillows, and teddy bears. These items are usually relatively affordable and come in a wide range of colors and styles, and can be personalized for the baby. Having a gift personalized it a lovely gesture and makes the gift extra-special.

Religious Items

If the family you are buying a gift for is religious, it’s a nice gesture to give the baby an item that will remind him or her of their very special rite of passage. Personalized Bibles, baby’s rosaries and crosses are all popular traditional gifts that may cost a little more, but will no doubt be cherished forever.

Photo Albums and Frames

There are a wide range of stunning frames and albums available for christenings and baptisms. Some are made with pewter and others of hand-painted porcelain. First, find out what the theme of the baby’s room is before you buy an album or frame, or just ask the parents what they would prefer. After the actual event, you may want to give the parents a few pictures to go in their new album or frame.

Baby Accessories

Socks, bonnets, bibs, headbands, and other adorable accessories that make the baby’s outfit complete are all wonderful christening gifts. They are affordable and should be given to the parents before the day of the event so that they can be worn on the day.
There are loads of wonderful gifts to consider when you are invited to a baptism or christening, and they are easy to find and have delivered right to your front door – or the door of the parents! Whether you take a gift with you or give something beforehand, both parents and baby are sure to be pleased with the treasured item.

Sharing is caring!
