A baby's baptism or christening is a very special and meaningful event, a day when family, friends, and other loved ones welcome a new baby into their faith. To commemorate baby's special occasion, there are many unique keepsake gifts you can give to the baby and to the baby's godparents.
It's baby's big day - what will he/she wear? Baby probably already has a special outfit all picked out, but that doesn't mean you can't give accessories! From christening baby bibs to bonnets to baby blankets, there are dozens of ways to add a bit of flair to baby's outfit. And best of all, most gifts can be personalized with embroidery or engraved with baby's baptism/christening date and name. After the ceremony, these items can be preserved and treasured as a memory of this significant event in the baby's life.
A gift of jewelry is always a meaningful way to congratulate both the baby and parents. This jewelry can be intended for baby to wear only at his/her baptism/christening, such as a special bracelet, or for wearing on a regular basis, like a cross necklace. Parents will be delighted when you give baby his/her own rosary, personalized with their initials. Baby jewelry is a wonderful keepsake gift, and can be passed down from generation to generation!
A baby's baptism/christening isn't just about the baby, though - don't forget the baby's new godparents! A godparent is a person that a godchild looks to for guidance, love, and support. As with baby, giving a godparent a gift of jewelry adds that touch of class that a simple card can't pull off. A personalized ceramic coffee mug will remind baby's godparents of that special day (and that special child!) every time they take a sip of their favorite beverage. Or give an engraved picture frame with a photograph of them holding the baby.
