Christening events should always be celebrated. More than any occasion, a christening ceremony is special as it marks the beginning of a little angel’s journey towards his/her spiritual growth. If you are invited in this prestigious occasion, consider yourself very lucky because only a chosen few are able to join this festive celebration. Since this is amongst the very rare ceremonies that can radiate a different level of solitude and joy, it is also a must that you buy a christening gift that will act as a symbol of your sincerity and love. No matter how big or small your gift is, what matters the most is the thought you put into the item. Now, if you are quite worried about not finding the best gift, there is no need for you to fret because below is a list of the simplest and most functional items you can buy:

Personalized Picture Frame

If you are artistic by heart, you can definitely save on your gift by creating a customized picture frame. Even if the child grows up a few months or years after the event, your gift will always be treasured since it would forever be a remembrance of how the child once was. You can buy scrap book items on bookstores, or you can choose to include items in the frame that you personally created. On the other hand, if you have never fancied creating artworks, you can also buy customized frames through stores or online shops. Since the gift is for a christening ceremony, it’s better if you would include a Bible verse in the customized frame. This will always remind the child of how essential it is to live by faith no matter how tough life gets.

Locket of Love

Lockets are popular christening gifts girls because they can grow old with the child and there are so many possibilities when you opt to offer a locket as a gift. You can either put the picture of the child and her family inside, or the photo of the child together with a Bible verse. Either way, your gift will be more than treasurable because it could remind the child the importance of incorporating family values at any instance. Lastly, to make the gift extra special, you can engrave a cross on the top part of the locket, together with the initial of the child. Sounds amazing, right? Right!

Cuddle Pillow

Who says cuddling is for adults only? Cuddle pillows are perfect gifts for children as they will never be outgrown. They are very functional and they are also cheap gifts that are worth treasuring. If you are running on a low budget, this is a very wise option. Also, you can make it look more personalized by sewing the child’s name on the pillowcase, or by having it printed. This will be a perfect gift for any christening ceremony.

Looking for perfect gifts is never difficult to do if your heart is in the art of giving. And lastly, it doesn’t matter how cheap or expensive your gift is because the best gift you could ever give any child is love, guidance and compassion.

Christening events are one of the occasions where we could celebrate sincere love, purity and joy. No matter what religious group you are a part of, it is always an honor to be invited in a glorious event like this because only a chosen few are invited to this very holy celebration. Now, I am quite sure you are excited to attend the event, but before you prepare your entire ensemble, let us first explore on the best gifts you can buy for the child. Since you are going to attend the event with friends or other family members who also love the child dearly, one of the greatest things you could do to make sure that your gift will be most functional is to take shares for a big gift. Through this, you would not have to worry about breaking the bank while ensuring that your gift will come out extra special. If you don’t have big christening gift ideas in mind, then below are some of the best you can find:

Walker

If the child doesn’t have a walker yet, then you can definitely contribute to the child’s developmental milestone if you buy him/her one. Gather a group of 4-5 friends and split the bill for a high quality walker. This may be expensive, but if you would share it with your group, you will surely be surprised on how cheap it would cost you. Indeed, there is no replacement for being resourceful, is there? So before you get ready for the big day, get that big wrapper ready for this awesome treat first.

Rocking Cradle

I am quite sure that just like any other child, your godchild also wants to be rocked to sleep. A rocking cradle is perfect to suit your godchild’s needs! Aside from providing optimum comfort and convenience to the child, you would be able to help the parents in their nursing duties since your cradle is there to help them successfully nurse the child. There are also rocking cradles that are comprised of hanging toys that would make the child feel more entertained. When choosing, always look at the quality to make sure that you are not buying the wrong brand of cradle.

Stroller

Strollers are blessings here on earth. Can you imagine nursing a child outdoors without a stroller? Absolutely not! A stroller is perfect since the child most probably does not know how to walk yet. And even if he/she does, it is very convenient to bring a cradle every time the family goes out since the child will definitely have to rest after a tiring walk. Save the parents from a full day of stress by giving them this gift. If you opt to buy a stroller, find a large group since the price is usually higher than the other ‘big’ gifts we have here.

These special christening gifts for girls and boys are worth every cent. Divide the bill into your group, and you will definitely be able to contribute highly to the child’s development.

Nursery: A Home’s Necessity

In any home, a child’s nursery is important. Not only does it give the appropriate space needed by the child, but it also gives you time to breathe. Nothing is more rewarding than having your own personal space in your own room during your off-nursing hours. In addition to that, a nursery will help you organize the items of your child and it will also provide additional space for furniture needed when nursing a child.

Why Create a Nursery?

Of course, you cannot expect that the child’s needs are the same as yours. Firstly, you’d need space for the baby’s cot, as well as cabinets for organizing the baby’s clothing and many other necessities. Other than that, rocking chairs or bouncy seats are also some of the pieces of furniture that will make your nursing life a lot easier. Since this is the case, a nursery is essential for you to still be able to manage your personal items apart from the baby’s necessities. Likewise, a nursery is needed for your child to grow in a conducive environment. However, if you are quite unsure on how to create a nursery of your own, do not worry because our tips will surely help you in deciding a concept for your baby boy or baby girl’s nursery.

Conceptualize a Theme

No nursery could ever be built without a theme. When choosing a theme, it is best that you do not stick to the overly childish themes because by doing so, you would not give the room an opportunity to grow with your child. A lot of parents tend to commit the mistake of choosing themes that are too childlike. As a consequence, they splurge a lot of money just to reconstruct the entire room once the child grows up. Instead, what you can do is avoid cartoon characters or princess-like themes. To make your child’s nursery more neutral, choose colors that can be appreciated even when the child grows up.

Also, conceptualize a design that could be an inspiration to the child during his/her growing up years. Instead of hanging portraits of Disney characters, what you can do is hang family portraits on the child’s wall. Also, you can use animal prints on the nursery’s carpets or wall design. This is one way for you to introduce the different animals to your child without overemphasizing the animal theme. 

Choose Color Combinations

Well, I understand your excitement about creating a nursery. However, whether you intend to build a baby boy or baby girl’s nursery, it is always best that you choose colors that are less gender-sensitive. This is especially true if you plan to have more kids in the future. By picking colors that are more neutral, you do not have to worry about repainting the room in case your next child is of the opposite gender.

Nowadays, nursery designs have been created to fit your growing needs. By looking at your different options, you would be able to create far better designs than you could ever think of. Lastly, have fun while you’re picking a room design!
