A Christening gift is one of great importance. We often keep them forever and therefore traditional gifts make a lasting impression and will be forever remembered. That is why it is always a lovely idea to make them personalised to the child being baptised. You are undoubtedly looking for the ideal gift that meets the following conditions:
- A gift that has a meaning like the event itself, which is a symbol, a tradition and a family event.
- A gift of lasting baptism. You want to give the baby something useful, which he/she will be able to use for a long time and which he/she can also enjoy when they are older.
- A customisable and personalized gift. This baby is unique, their story is unlike any other, so they need gifts just for them!
- A gift that strengthens the bond between you and the baby. Finding THE rare gift that strengthens and seals this bond, isn't that basically what you would like above all as a godfather, godmother or grandparents?
When it comes to christening gifts, there are no rules strictly speaking but rather traditions. Thus, it is customary that the godfather and godmother offer something sacred. It does not necessarily have to be a religious momentum, after all, maybe they want a gift without religious connotations, even if the ceremony takes place in church. As for presents from guests, it is customary for traditional baptismal gifts and valuable ones to be given by family members or very close friends. The other guests are free to offer whatever they want. So what ideas can we think of that are just right for the baby?
