A new baby’s christening is a meaningful experience for the newborn, his godparents, and everyone involved. While different denominations have different traditions and customs, a christening marks a new baby’s entrance into the Christian faith and is a pretty significant milestone. If you’re attending a new baby’s christening, you’ll want to choose the perfect christening gift ideas to commemorate this special day. Here’s how to do it.
How to Choose a Christening Gift
When shopping for a christening present, you have a range of options to choose from, including jewelry, decorative pieces, and religious-inspired toys and books. Your first step is to try to choose a gift that comes from the heart. You want something that bears a unique meaning to you, the newborn, or his family.
It’s a good idea to choose a gift that speaks of God or the Christian faith in some way. Or, choose something that’s personalized to lend a sentimental and unique feel to your gift. Either way, your gift will have an emotional impact on the parents of the baby. For instance, you could engrave a piece of jewelry, such as a pendant or a bracelet, with a short message. Or, choose a personalized book that teaches baby about God, his love, and baby’s place in God’s big vision.
Perhaps you could get baby a religious-themed toy, such as a plush rabbit that sings a religious tune, or a plush Noah’s ark set. You could also choose a delectable food gift that the parents and godparents can enjoy. Consider one of our Edible® Arrangements that will last well beyond the festivities and may even come with a fun plush toy for baby depending on the arrangement or gift bundle you choose.
