Christening gifts for boys and girls

If you’ve been invited to a christening, you’re possibly wondering what the etiquette is when it comes to presents and how you can avoid turning up with something that countless other members of the family and friends have decided to give.

At Bundles of Joy, we have the answer, and it lies in christening keepsakes that can be personalised, made completely unique and which will be treasured forever.

We stock a range of unique and unusual christening gifts that will stand out in a crowd and be the perfect gift to give at this very special time.

What are christenings?

A christening is a special day for the child, his or her family and their friends, and is seen as the start of a positive life journey. The ceremonial baptism is a religious affair which is intended to help the baby boy or girl make the best choices in life both for themselves and others.



Christening Gifts


Christenings are held in church, where the child is baptised by a priest with water, whilst surrounded by friends and family. Although a deeply religious ceremony that is steeped in history, most modern day christenings are combined with a gathering away from the church at which the baby’s fresh start in life is celebrated with food, drink and gifts. It is at this stage that presents are usually offered.

The joy of giving at christenings Christenings are traditional, religious ceremonies, but they are also joyful days that celebrate the start of a newborn’s journey through life. While new baby gifts are intended to welcome boys and girls into the world, christening gifts are designed as keepsakes for their first tentative, metaphoric steps into the big, wide world and are usually treasured just as much as newborn gifts. It isn’t just the child who is on the receiving end of christening presents, though; we also stock unique christening gifts for godparents that recognise the special part they have agreed to play in the child’s life and which also say ‘thankyou’ for being an important part of a very special day. What are godparents?
A godparent is someone who partakes in a baby’s baptism, is chosen by the parents to take an interest in the child’s upbringing and tasked with ‘being there’ should anything happen to the parents. It is therefore an incredibly important role and is usually recognised as such during a christening by the giving of gifts to godmothers or godfathers from the child’s parents.

Godparents can be family members or friends, but the part they play in the christening is a key one and recognising their on-going presence in the child’s life has become common practice among new parents.
