Religious Baby Christening Gifts


Silver Cross

A silver cross for hanging over baby's crib is 'the' classic baby christening gift and always a good idea - as long as baby does not get several of these... A silver wall cross is a special addition to any baby's room and a gift to be treasured for many years. Other sterling silver baby gifts are classic baptism gift ideas, too.

Silver Baby Bible

A silver bible (with a sterling silver cover) can often be personalized and is a beautiful keepsake and souvenir of baby's baptism. This first bible will make such a unique baby christening gift and will last a lifetime! 

A great alternative to a heavier sterling silver cover is a leather cover with a sterling silver cross:




Classic Keepsakes Silverplate Certificate Holder

The Rosewood Birth Certificate Holder Memory Set is a classic keepsake gift for baby's baptism! The box is lined in white satin and includes a silver plated birth certificate holder, a first tooth box and a first curl box. Simply perfect to give as a baby Christening gift!




Baby Cross Pendant / Necklace

This will be a gift to keep until baby is a bit bigger. Give it to baby's baptism and the child can wear it at his or her First Communion or Confirmation! Cross pendants come in all styles and sizes, with or without necklace and in gold or silver. They can be quite plain or with an accent diamond or birthstone. A great religious baby gift to cherish for years to come!






Jesus Loves Me Musical Lamb by BABY GUND


This very cute and super soft little plush lamb has embroidered facial features and a neck ribbon with the message 'Jesus Loves Me'. It also plays 'Jesus Loves Me' and is surface washable. An awesome christening baby gift by GUND.   





Baptism Gown


If you are a very close relative (grandmother, grandfather) or the godmother, godfather of the baby, giving the baptism gown for baby is a nice gift idea, too. However, it is probably better not to buy the outfit on your own but rather let the parents (or at least the mother) decide. You can either accompany them when they shop for the gown and then pay for it directly, alternatively give them a gift card for a baptism outfit in advance.    




religious baby poem

You are a child of God. You are wonderfully made, dearly loved and precious in His sight. Before God made you, He knew you... There is no one else like you!





Religious Baby Book Gift Basket


How about putting a bunch of religious baby books in a basket and add some cute little companion for baby such as a cuddly lamb or alternatively a cosy pillow or a cuddly blanket? Yes, please ;-)
