10 Beautiful Christening Gifts to Last a Lifetime

Regardless of whether you’re particularly religious or not, Christenings and indeed the baptism itself are a very important event in any young child’s life.

 

Though the infant being Christened may never remember this seminal day, it is the very first of the Christian church’s Holy sacraments and signals the child’s entrance into the faith, a celebration of jov deserves to be commemorated with much more than a gift card or colourful toy.

Here are 10 of our favourite and most meaningful Christening gifts that reflect and commemorate this special occasion perfectly, while remaining absolutely useful – and loved – for a lifetime.

Whilst our focus has been on Christenings many of these gifts would be suitable for equally important days for other children’s ceremonies including Holy communion, Confirmations and Naming Ceremonies where the common theme throughout is love and the celebration of their birth or life ahead.

We hope you found these ideas useful and would love to hear your comments and what other gifts you would love to give…
