The Perfect Way to Mark a New Baby’s Special Day

September 14, 2010

The Christening of a precious new baby is a special moment, both in the life of the baby and also its parents.

For friends and relatives of the family, the perfect way to commemorate such an importance occasion is to present the baby with a thoughtfully-chosen Christening gift, there are lots of things to chose from these days, here are some great present ideas.

Silver is a popular choice for a gift today, and there is a huge range of different items from which to make a choice, including moneyboxes, containing a couple of new coins to wish the child well in the future, jewellery, little trinket boxes designed to take baby’s first teeth as and when they fall out, and, of course, special containers to hold that all-important birth certificate. Many silver items can also be engraved with the name and date of birth of the child, making it unique.

Silver jewellery is particularly popular as a Christening gift. For little girls, the perfect present would be a charm bracelet with the first charm attached; charms can then be added as each birthday and Christmas arrives, building into a piece of jewellery that will become an investment in the future. For a little boy, a simple chain can be purchased, and a charm in the shape of a football or, perhaps, a motorcar, can be attached to complete the gift. Most retailers of jewellery for children include a certificate to which the child’s details can be added.

There are plenty of other ideas for Christening gifts available, especially for those who might have a limited budget. For instance, a wooden toy, based on something old and traditional, makes a lovely gift and, again, can be personalized in some way with the child’s details perhaps being painted on.

An other traditional way to commemorate a child’s Christening is a hand-sewn sampler or cot quilt; these can have the child’s name and date of birth incorporated into the design, and will be treasured forever.

Whatever the choice, a Christening is the perfect time for a special gift in a child’s life.
