For an easy overview, these ideas for baby christening gifts are classified in three categories:
- religious / classic baptism gifts
- symbolic christening gifts (see here)
- 'other' baptism gift ideas
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.
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:
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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 cozy pillow or a cuddly blanket? Yes, please ;-)
Suitable for boys and girls, an amber teething necklace makes a great baby christening gift! Find all details and tips on amber teething necklaces and amber teething bracelets here.
This is a very cute and thoughtful baptismal gift for baby girls! This sterling silver baby to bride bracelet with a single fresh water pearl first is used as a baby wrist bracelet. Then, when 'baby' gets married it's used as an old heirloom and fold in half to form a ring. A new safety pin needs to be borrowed to attach into the wedding dress with the blue bow on the bracelet. The blue bow is included in the gift set, as well as a lucky penny (of the current year) and a double sided frame. One side for a baby photo, the other for a wedding photo.
A special Christening photo album is perfect to preserve the precious moments of baby's christening. It is a great keepsake to remember this special day in baby's life.
This christening photograph album by Haysom Interiors is prettily designed. The front cover has a turquoise ribbon on top with a fabric outfit and a cross motif on a chain. The album has 30 pages and holds 60 photographs. Such a thoughtful and lovely christening gift idea to always cherish and remember that special festivity.
