Baby Christening Gift Ideas

5 super ideas for a baby christening gift

Friday, March 24, 2017

Baby christening gifts are very special in sharing with a family's important event. Baby christening gifts, baby baptism gifts or baby dedication gifts that preserve memories of the moment, or are Christian gifts by nature, are generally most appropriate and desirable.

Aunt Abby has some good ideas for baby christening gifts.

1. Shadow boxes

A shadow box is a box with a frame around it encased with glass. Shadow boxes are wonderful baby christening gifts because memorabilia from the christening including the christening gown, the invitation, the baptism certificate, and other special things can be preserved and displayed in the shadow box.

2. Lockets

A locket with the baby's picture from the christening ceremony makes a very nice keepsake and is a fabulous baby christening gift.

3. Christian jewelry

Christian jewelry such as a necklace with a cross pendant or a charm bracelet with religious or prayer pendants are very nice baby christening gifts.

Did you know: Baptizing babies is a sacrament in the Catholic Church and christening is a term often used interchangeably. Christening also refers to giving the baby a Christian name at the time of baptism. Many religions, other than Catholicism, also baptize and christen babies. Terms used for such ceremonies include christening, baptism, baby dedication, and anointing. Religions that practice believer baptism rather than infant baptism usually have baby dedications.

4. A Bible

A Bible for the baby is a good baby christening gift. Most Bibles have a place to write a message in the front and many have a place to record family history. This is an excellent baby baptism gift.

5. A rosary

A small, personal rosary makes a fine baby christening gift.
