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.


Cheap Christening Gifts: Only the Best and the Finest


Attending a christening ceremony is absolutely one opportunity that you should never miss. Being a part of this once-in-a-lifetime experience is a very treasurable moment that could make a mark in a child’s life. That being said, offering a simple christening gift to your godchild is one step of showing how genuine you are in accepting your responsibility of nurturing the child with love and affection. Now, buying a christening gift does not mean that you shell out a lot of cash. With a bit of creativity and resourcefulness, you can definitely be on your way to selecting the perfect christening gift.

Personalized Bibs

If you have a really tight budget, you do not need to force yourself into buying baby stuffs that are way above your allotted price range. Personalized bibs are definitely the go-to of many godparents who want to save from gift buying without foregoing the need to be memorable and unique. Aside from being functional, bibs can also send cool messages to your godchild. Look for humorous and fun phrases that could best fit the child and have them imprinted on each bib. In the like manner, you can also look for Bible verses that could remind the entire family of the importance of putting God first in all circumstances.

Travel Blankets

A child can never have too many blankets as they are well-known necessities in a child’s life. To make sure that the child is always wrapped up in comfort and care, buying a travel blanket can be one of your best options. If you want to make it more memorable, you can also have the travel blanket personalized by sewing the child’s name in it. If you don’t know how to sew, you can always look for a trust-worthy tailor. The labour costs only a few pounds, and the best thing about this is that you are sure that a high value will be placed on this item since it is customized. Plus, it doesn’t cost as much as other christening gifts.

Cuddle Cubes

Cuddling is something we can never outgrow, and yes, I’m sure your godchild loves cuddling too. Cuddle cubes are inexpensive christening presents that can withstand the test of time. No matter how old the child gets, it can still serve its purpose and function especially if it is made up of durable materials. When picking cuddle cubes, make sure that the fabric is hypoallergenic. In addition to that, there are eco-friendly baby materials that could be the best gifts even if the child’s skin is overly sensitive.

Family Portrait

A family portrait is not only cheap, but it is also a very treasurable item. If you are running out of ideas and resources, you can always count on a family portrait to save the day. All you need to do is print a picture of your godchild and his/her entire family and put it inside a gorgeous frame, and voila! You now have an instant christening gift.

If you have a low budget, there are a lot of cheap christening gifts that could help you show how much you care. Just remember, it’s the value that you put in the gift that matters the most, not the price tag.
