Boys Christening Gifts
A christening is one of the first milestone events in a young boy's life. The event is early enough in a child's life that he might not remember it, but gifts from that event can be valuable to him when he is older. Christening gifts from the loved ones who attend add to this first milestone.
A small stuffed animal can be given as a christening gift for a child. Present a stuffed toy lamb with the child's name and the date of his baptism stitched on the lamb. This will serve as a toy and a memory of this important date in the boy's life, long after he stops playing with stuffed animals.
An engraved item is a typical christening gift for a boy. These are items that can be displayed in his room and saved to be passed on to family members when he gets older and has children of his own. One option is an engraved pewter or silver mug with the child's christening date and his name on it. Another possibility is an engraved photograph frame to hold a photo from the day to commemorate this milestone occasion in his young life.
While christenings take place too early in life for reading, a personalized Bible can be given as a keepsake on a boy's christening date. The Bible can be engraved with the child's name, and his parents can read from it to him as a young child. When he is older, he will have his own personal Bible that also commemorates his christening date.
Create a memory for your child of all the people who attended his baptism. Frame a photo of the boy who is having his christening with a wide matted border. Place pens at the table as guests arrive. Ask each guest to sign the border and possibly leave a small message for the child. This photograph and matting is then framed and displayed in the boy's room as a memory for him and his family of the christening and those that attended.
