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.


Gift Selection: Nothing but the Best for the Baby Shower


The best baby shower gifts are not the most expensive ones. Rather, the best gifts are the ones that come from deep within the heart. And since you are looking for a gift for your friend’s upcoming baby, it is best that you become gender-sensitive about the gift you’ll buy.

In addition to that, couples who are excited for their baby to come out definitely have a long list of things to buy, and as a good friend, it is advisable for you to look for items that can really be used by the parents when they are nursing the child. Therefore, it is wiser that you think of items that may come in handy at any given time and day.

Bean Bag for Comfort

Bean bags may be the last thing you have in mind, but this is one item that can absolutely be useful in a nursery. Bean bags are not space-consuming and they can provide babies a security mattress. Through a bean bag, babies can sleep comfortably and the parents will have the peace of mind they need knowing that their babies are well-secured. Plus, this item is not as expensive as compared to other necessities in the nursery.


All parents aim to provide the nourishment that their infants and toddlers need, and it is a known fact that fruits and vegetables are the best sources of the essential nutrients in the food pyramid. There are a lot of cheap juicers you can buy, and the good thing about this is that not only the babies can benefit from it, but the parents as well, thereby making it one of the best baby shower gifts you can buy.  

Bouncing Cradle

Babies love the back and forth swinging motion of a cradle as this basically helps them to relax and fall asleep. Aside from a swinging chair, bouncing cradles really help parents whenever they are nursing their baby especially during late nights when infants are restless and cannot fall asleep. Also, a lot of bouncing cradles have high-tech features like music and mobile, and these are plusses you might want to consider when choosing a gift.

Eco-friendly Sheets and Mattresses

When it comes to choosing a gift for the baby, it is essential that the item is hypoallergenic. Even though there are so many companies that offer a wide variety of products, the best sheets and mattresses are the ones that are eco-friendly. Green products are the best since you are guaranteed that there were no harsh or harmful chemicals that were used during the manufacture of these products. Also, these commodities are organic and were grown naturally.

Baby Socks and Mittens

This may be the cheapest among all of the gifts mentioned above, but since baby socks and mittens are a must in the wardrobe of infants and toddlers, buying a pack of these that are of varying colors and sizes will be one of the greatest gifts you can give to the parents.

Although it’s the thought that counts, it is rewarding to see that the baby is really benefitting from your gift. Choose wisely. Choose from the heart. Give with all your heart.
