Spring and the Easter season are popular times for Christenings and Baptisms. Babies as young as a few weeks are Baptized with water, beginning their religious journeys. During a Christening a baby is given a name while Godparents vow to care for child’s spiritual life and guide the on their path to faith.

This significant occasion is celebrated by family, friends and the entire church. Just like spring and Easter, a Baptism is about new beginnings.

If you’re planning your child’s Christening this spring, being honored as a Godparent, or attending a baptism for a special child in your family or circle of friends, you’ll be interested in these unique Christening gift ideas for both baby and Godparents. That’s right, parents of the baby should get the Godparents a small gift of appreciation for their lifelong commitments. And of course, the baby also deserves a special gift during this important occasion.

Christening Gift Ideas For Babies

Finding the right Christening gift will depend on whether of not you want your present to be religious or not. Both types of gifts can be special and meaningful, so the preference is really up to you.

If you’re leaning towards a religious gift, consider one of our beautiful children’s Bibles that are personalized with the baby’s name and Baptism date. Our Tiny Testament Personalized Baptism Bible has room for personalization on the front cover, with your choice of pink or blue text.
