First there was the baby shower, then the actual birth of the baby, and now the baby's christening! Time to go shopping again. This time, why not buy something a little more personal. Baby christening gifts can be just about anything, but the best gifts are the ones that are going to remain as keepsakes in the family for years to come.
Chances are if you've been invited to the baby's christening, you're either a very close friend, or a family member. So what are you going to buy? The following are a few baby christening gift ideas to get you started:
Buying for a christening, baptism, etc, isn't the same as buying for a baby shower. For example, you wouldn't buy a 20 pack of diapers for a christening. Of course, rules were made to be broken and sometimes you have to look at the specific situation. Maybe the parents could use some more practical gifts. It's not impossible; you just have to make sure that the gift you buy has some significance to the event. For example, you could personal baby bibs by having psalms or short prayers embroidered on them.
