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.

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.

Other / Classic Baby Christening Gifts

Amber Teething Necklace

Suitable for boys and girls, an amber teething necklace makes a great baby christening gift. Amber is renowned for its healing and calming influence for a long time already. It is Europe's oldest gemstone and a natural remedy used for mental and physical well-being. In the Middle Ages amber was one of the most important drugs and until today amber is found in homeopathic remedies to relieve pain.

For babies and toddlers amber is used to soothe teething pain, ear aches, an upset stomach and a sore throat. Moreover it is said to calm anxiety and it also serves as an anti-spasmodic.

If you are worried about strangulation, let baby wear an amber anklet or bracelet instead. Double-wrapped, the amber necklace can be worn as a bracelet or anklet. Alternatively buy the appropriate size for baby's arm or foot right away, there are special teething bracelets and anklets available as well as (gift) sets consisting of a necklace and a bracelet.

Christening Photo Album

A special Christening photo album is perfect to preserve the precious moments of baby's christening / baptism. It is a great keepsake to remember this special day in baby's life.
