How To Find Baby Christening Gifts On A Budget

By: John Smith

Over the last few years, the global banking crisis has hit everyone hard and pinching the pennies is an unfortunate necessity for most of us. At the same time we are trying to stay afloat in our capitalist culture where kids always seem to want the next big super toy and even friends of our own ages are impressed by labels and tags. In times like these, finding the perfect presents can be an incredibly stressful ordeal, whether buying for a birthday, wedding or christening. However, with the increasing availability of personalized presents and charming customized gifts, whether you are opting for a christening gift for the new baby itself or if you are planning a surprise treat for the proud parents, you are sure to find great baby christening gifts on a budget.

A fantastic way of keeping spending down is also to create your own presents. Handmade cards are great gift ideas as they are personalized for the recipient themselves and show that you have put a lot of thought and time into celebrating the occasion. Although many people are quite happy to stick and glue a fantastic design for their friends, those who aren't so creative and those who want a more professional style of card often opt for personalizing cards with photos and computerized images. This is an incredibly easy process and for christenings it is a great way to give the child a real keepsake. Some choose a nice photo of the baby from after the birth whilst some create cards with the proud parents on or with a concertina of photos.

Personalized photo presents also come in other forms which are perfect for baby christening gifts. Engraved photo albums can be given with a few cute pictures of the newborn's first photos and left blank for subsequent photos, or they can be filled with photos of the baby's relatives and family friends. Photo frames can be engraved with personalized messages, song lyrics or a line from a poem for a long-term memento. For fun photo related gifts, many people are choosing to take some snaps to make anything from customized t-shirts to special balloons to personalized mouse mats. Complimentary gifts for the new parents can also be made for a sweet family set of such personalized objects.

Similarly, creating your own presents for the new nursery is a nice idea. A simple but effective gift is baby bunting. This is made by sewing triangles of fabric to a long stretch of fabric; this can then be hung across the nursery either as a temporary celebratory gift, or if made with substantial tasteful textures, as a permanent addition to the room. Although this does take time and effort to make, materials are very affordable and it will jazz up a plain crib. Another popular present is also having the child's name painted or printed onto a banner or door sign. Again, this can be created online and printed off with photos or can be handmade if you are a creative type. Keepsakes and home accessories such as engraved paperweights and carriage clocks also make a nice addition to a nursery, as do personalized money boxes. Although many people may think of silver straight away and equate that to being expensive, often smaller versions or ceramic versions are just as stunning but are less likely to break the piggy bank.

Other traditional gifts such as personalized christening plates or even a personalized set of authentic coins need not be expensive if ordered through the appropriate channels. A small engraved trinket box has a multitude of uses - although often used for holding baby teeth, baby's first curl or even baby's first earrings - but need not cost more than a rather affordable twenty pounds. This is also a gift which can be used right through to the baby's later years. For more timely gifts, cute decorative baby rattles, crib mobiles and even bedding and clothing can also be customized to include embroidery of the baby's name. Miniature toys can also be personalized; for example some teddy bears can be altered to include a "voice box" with a fun customized message.

Whether you have a budget of five or twenty pounds, with the variety of affordable and high-quality personalized gifts on the market - ranging from simple photo christening cards to customized home accessories - there is bound to be a christening gift to suit both the baby and your budget.
