What is a Bris?

A bris is a Jewish ceremony where a baby receives his Hebrew and secular name and is also circumcised by a mohel in a procedure called brit milah. Given the nature of the latter, this ceremony is clearly a "boys only" club. A bris is performed eight days after birth and can take place in a synagogue or at the home. A bris can consist of your twenty closest relatives and friends or can be as big as a large wedding. But no one is invited. No, really. People are "informed." Just to be clear, the baby is nameless until this point. The reason for this is because oftentimes the secular and Hebrew names are the same, so if you give one away, the cat's out of the bag on the other. After the ceremony, comes the celebration. This usually takes place in a social hall at the synagogue or at the home. Gifts for a bris are any cute baby gifts for a boy.

Baby Photo Frames – Perfect Gift For a Christening Ceremony

The birth of a baby brings a bundle of joys to the baby's parents and relatives. If your are going to attend a christening ceremony for the first time, you may be clueless about what gift you should purchase for the baby. Among the various items available, christening photo frames will be the most suitable gift for this special ceremony. There are several happy moments in our life which we come across but only a few are deeply engraved in our memory. Since the birth of a baby brings a lot of happiness to the parents, they will try to capture each and every moment they will be spending with their child. Thus these baby photo frames are a wonderful way of preserving these special moments.

On the occasion of a christening ceremony, gifts are given to the babies to welcome them into our world. These gifts mostly include baby clothes, diapers, food essentials, skin care products and many other things. If you want to give the baby something special, then you can give it. personalized christening photo frames. These are some of the most popular gift items because you can add your personal touch to it. In this picture frame, you can inscribe the details of the newborn like his or her birth date, birth time and birth day he or she was born. These baby photo frames will also serve as a wonderful item to commemorate this special day. When the baby grows up, he or she will definitely cherish this gift which you have given him or her.

If you are planning to gift the christening photo frames to the baby, there are some points to note. One of the most vital points is to choose the frame which is of excellent quality. This is because, longevity of the photos encased in baby photo frames, in order to be preserved, depends wholly on the quality of the frames. The picture frame which is of superb quality also protects the picture from dust particles. Compared to earlier, these items are available in all shapes and sizes.

In the eyes of the parents, their children tend to grow at a very fast pace. Thus, if you visit the home of a newborn baby, you will find stacks of the baby's photographs in every corner of the room. If these pictures are not preserved, then chances are that they will be damaged by the worms of time.

What is believer’s baptism/christening by immersion? What is the purpose of it, since salvation is “by grace through faith” (Ephesians 2:8,9)?

Baptism/Christening by immersion is a representation of something which has already taken place in the heart of a person the moment he/she surrendered their life to Christ (1 Pet. 3:21). Baptism/Christening is the public acknowledgement of our death to self, burial, and resurrection of a new life we have found in Jesus Christ.

As a believer, we have been “crucified” (standing upright in water), we have been “buried” (immersed into the water), and we have been “resurrected into new life” (raised out of the water). This becomes a picture of a spiritual birth as defined in Rom. 6:3-5 and 1 Corinthians 12:13. It is the outward testimony of the believer’s inward faith. A sinner is saved the moment their faith is placed in the person of Jesus Christ. Baptism/Christening then, is a visible and public testimony to that faith.

Religious Ceremonial Outfits

Christening and baptism, bris and naming: each tradition has a long history of symbolism and significance. At Christening Essentials, we know that children's religious ceremonial outfits add meaning and beauty to these important occasions. To help you in your apparel search, we've provided these brief descriptions of the different types of children's religious ceremonial outfits you'll find at our site.

Christening and Baptism

White christening gowns were for many years a tradition for both girls and boys. However, modern christening clothes and baptism outfits are more gender oriented.

For baby girls, white christening gowns and christening dresses remain the standard. Girls christening gowns are typically very ornate, with a great deal of lace, trim, and detail. Many baptismal dresses are completed with a matching bonnet.

Boys christening outfits take many forms. Rompers, vests, and one-piece christening outfits are all common, as are christening suits and tuxedos. White is still the standard christening attire color for boys.

Bris and Naming

For the Jewish ceremony of Bris, Bris gowns or Bris sets with a matching yarmulke are worn. The back closure of a Bris gown should offer easy access. White is the common but not exclusive color.

A naming set for a baby daughter typically includes a white dress, panties, hat, and booties.

Special Occasion

Many of the children's religious ceremonial outfits you'll find at Christening Essentials can also be worn for other special occasions, such as weddings or holiday celebrations. Whatever occasion is being celebrated, we recommend adding a preservation bag to your purchase so you can keep your child's outfit as a lasting memory.

Simply put, we are commanded in Scripture. It is out of obedience to the new life found in Christ (Colossians 2:12). Why would a fully devoted Christ follower not want to proclaim the hope they have found in Christ Jesus? (1 Peter 1:3)

Romans 6:3-5 teaches us that it is literally a picture of our death, our burial and our resurrection in Christ. It is the first act of obedience to God after salvation. Why be baptized? Consider the following:

Scriptural baptism pleases the Lord. When Jesus was baptized, God the Father said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17). When we follow the example of the Christ in our lives, we please God.

Our personal faith in Jesus is a testimony to the world. Jesus said, “Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.” (Matthew 10:32).

Baptism then is a public testimony of our faith in Jesus Christ, and the way in which we identify ourselves with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection.

Christening/Baptism Favor Ideas for Girls

Gifts are a way of making any and every ceremony unforgettable. The only way of making your child's baptism ceremony a memorable one is by gifting favors which are useful and practical. Take a look at some of the baptism favor ideas for girls given below to plan your party.

Baptism favor idea

Baptism is one of the memorable events for all parents. The christening of your child is an event that deserves a grand celebration. And a party as such needs some serious planning. The tedious part of planning a party is thinking of party favors and making sure they are useful to guests in some way or the other. With budget and time constraints, coupled with a newborn baby to take care of, managing those important favors can be supremely tough.

A good tip to keep in mind while fixing these favors is that they should be practical. Gifting items which will merely add to the clutter in the house is a total waste of money. You can also buy a mixture of gifts mentioned below to give away them to girls of varying ages.
Photo Frames

Photo frames are classic gifts for such an occasion. Before the christening ceremony, get a portrait done and frame it in the photo frames you intend to give away. This is a great way of making this special memory last for a long time.
Key Chains

As little girls learn to ride bicycles, keeping their keys safe is a chance to learn a huge responsibility. Thus, gifting key chains is not only useful, but also a sweet way of sharing their responsibility.

Candles serve as an excellent home décor item. They can be used for dim lighting too, for cozy dinners, or just to create a mood. Candles are good baptism favor ideas for girls as it becomes a good incentive to decorate rooms.

No girl can have enough number of bags. So, yes! Gifting bags is always well appreciated by the receiver. Depending on your budget, you can arrange for the number of required bags for your guests.

Gift Vouchers

If you really do not have the time to go out, buy, and wrap the gifts, then gifting vouchers of a particular shop is a very good idea. This way, you do not have to think too much about what to buy, and the guest too can purchase an item of his/her choice.

Every little girl enjoys stationery items as they are extremely useful. This gift item will be an absolute hit amongst all the school-going girls. You can make small packets of necessary stationery items that are required at school for art and craft projects.


Dressing up like your favorite movie star or your mother is one of the much-loved ways of spending time for young girls. Be a part of this absolutely enjoyable activity by contributing to their collection of accessories. Earrings, bracelets, anklets, and little trinkets will truly be treasured in the years to come.

If you have toddlers attending the baptism ceremony of your child, then toys are the best favors you can come up with. Educational toys and interactive toys are some options for kids who are a little older.
Goodie Bags
A collection of assorted gifts in a goody bag is always loved by one and all. It adds some element of surprise for the receiver. You can fill up a goody bag with nice toiletries, such as a soap, mini scrub, shower cap, small mirror, body lotion, tiny comb, rubber band, and other such miscellaneous items which can be very useful, especially when traveling.

Personalized Milk Bottles

This is a gift item purely for toddlers. Personalized milk bottles are a great idea, as young moms can designate these for their babies. Once these bottles are no longer in use, they can be very well be used for storing water in the fridge.

All these gift items mentioned above are available in a wide price range to suit your budget. Always remember to buy a gift which will be useful to the receiver, as this is the only way of making your ceremony an unforgettable one.
