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.


Five Of The Best Ideas To Give A Little Boy For His Christening


Most people will agree that men are a lot more difficult to get gifts for compared to women. Aside from a power tool, belt, tie, or other clothing items, there are no more other options. That is probably why most men get the same gifts year after year.

This also happens to be true way before. In Christening, most people find it easy to get gifts for little girls. Aside from the usual Christening gifts, you can buy necklaces, bracelets, charms, and other mementos for the little one to enjoy. However, with little boys, there can be a problem.

There are plenty of ideas to help you in finding the best gift to offer the new Christian little boy. Here are five of the best christening gifts for boys.

One of the popular gifts is a Christening Bible. Christening Bibles have many shapes and sizes. Go for the leather bounded ones. The King James Version of the Bible with a silver front piece is a traditional choice. This gift will really come in handy in the future. It is also something that can be passed on from generations to come.

Silver is also a perfect gift. Silver has been associated with Christening events for the longest time. Another popular choice is a silver St. Christopher pendant. It is a lot cheaper compared to the Bible. Who is St. Christopher? He is the saint of travelers and a guide for a child, providing protection in his or her journey through life. Have an engraving of the child’s initials to make the gift more personalized.

A silver mug or cup is also a good idea. Since the old times, these items have been a token or a gift given as small scaled designs in display boxes. Now in modern times, silver has became a lot pricier that is why a full sized cup is seldom given as gifts anymore.

More ideas to gift a little boy with is a set of silver cufflinks. It is a lasting gift can be kept or used when the boy gets older.  Again for a more personalized feel, you can engrave the initial of the owner. Cufflinks come in the form of the Christian fish or ICHTHUS in the cross.

For those who have a bit of a Celtic background, a Quaich is a memorable gift. It is a two handled bowl shaped cup is a good symbol of friendship. This is a good way to establish a good relationship between you and the kid. The Quaich is used as a cup passed on from one person to another as rite of passage in events like Christenings, weddings, and even funerals. Most Quaich has engravings of the name of the New Christian and date of the Christening inside the bowl.

Whatever gift you choose, make sure it will be for long term use. It should always be something that can be treasure once the boy grows up.
