Choosing The Perfect Christening Gift
A Christening is a beautiful occasion for families and close friends to celebrate the arrival of a new little person into the world. Whether you are a relative, a godparent or just a guest invited to share this special occasion, it is customary to bring along a Christening gift.
When choosing a Christening gift, you want to find something that will mark the special celebration. You can choose a gift that will be enjoyed by the baby now or something that they will cherish when they get older. You may also want to include the new parents in your gift, so they can celebrate this special time. If you are a grandparent or godparent, you may want to choose a gift that will become a family heirloom or that offers a beautiful memento of this special time.
Here at Everything But Flowers, we have put together a gorgeous collection of Christening gifts that ticks all these boxes. Including everything from classic Christening gifts to novelty surprise gifts and beautiful hampers with items for all the family, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting your unique Christening gift.
Why Do We Give Christening Gifts?
Christening gifts are, and have been for many centuries, a traditional part of a Christening or naming ceremony. They are a way for guests to both congratulate the parents on the safe arrival of their new child, and to mark the beginning of a new chapter in the infant’s life.
For centuries, it was customary to present a baby with a silver coin on the day of their christening. This was seen as a symbol of good luck and prosperity, but also had the practical benefit of being of monetary value. During the Victorian era, this tradition expanded to include other objects, often made of silver, as Christening gifts.
These days, Christening gifts are much more varied and can include anything from clothing or keepsakes for the infant to trees planted in their name or bottles of wine or whisky to be laid down until the child reaches the age of 21. Personalised gifts are also very popular, and many of our gifts can be personalised with initials or the new baby’s name. Finally, if you would prefer to send a gift voucher, that option is available too here at Everything But Flowers. Choose a traditional money voucher or take a look at our unique experience vouchers for a wide range of special days out.
What Type of Christening Gift Will You Choose?
At Everything But Flowers, you will be able to find a unique and special Christening gift to mark the special occasion. As well as traditional Christening gifts including silver picture frames, money boxes and cutlery, we also have a delightful selection Waterford crystal ornaments and beautiful crockery items to choose from, and many beautiful keepsakes and mementoes including religious ones.
If you are looking for something personal, you may like the idea of some beautiful little personalised shoes which can be embroidered with an initial of your choice, or the beautifully bound 100-year diary with pages that are just waiting to be filled with all the momentous life events that lie ahead.
Our gorgeous hampers also make very popular Christening gifts and can be filled with items for the new arrival as well as with delicious food, drink or pampering gifts for mum and dad. Take a look at our selection of Christening hampers, or browse our Hamper range for more delicious examples.
