Big and Cheap: Christening Gifts Worth Chipping In


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:


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.


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.
