Keepsakes For Key People At The Christening

When it comes to receiving gifts at a christening, the core family will often get a variety of christening gifts. Some will be for the child from older relatives and the godparents and others may just be cards and small tokens from well wishers who attend the ceremony. However, when it comes to buying keepsakes for key people at a christening such as the godparents and grandparents some of us can feel a little lost.

In this article we're going to look at a few of the most elegant, simple and affordable keepsakes out there; perfect christening gifts for everyone involved!

Gifts for the Godparents:
The godparents are there to care for the child and express their love for the family. They're going to be responsible for the child in the event that anything should happen to his or her birth parents and they are committed to caring for his or her spiritual well being too. In fact the biggest christening gifts that the god parents will give the child will be religious mentorship, love and support.

It's a great honor and responsibility to be made the god parents of a baby during a christening event. That means that christening presents for them should represent that. We think that christening gifts for god parents should be sophisticated, grown up and show the birth parents appreciation for them on this meaningful occasion.

An engraved photo frame containing a photograph of the child can be a good small, token present but for grander gestures a champagne hamper or a box of sweet treats can really say 'thank you'. After all, god parents effectively sign up to take care of a child for life so they have their work ahead of them if they're dedicated and caring in that role. They deserve a little bit of luxury and gratitude.

Gifts for the Grandparents:
The grandparents of the baby are attending the christening out of love and joy. They are welcoming the new child in to the world and sanctifying the baby with a blessing and with the baptism. They are special guests at a christening being they will be partly responsible for the care of the child as he or she grows and will play a large role in the baby's life. Like the godparents they are at the event to celebrate the baby's birth and the officially religious occasion, but they're also there as proud relatives to the child.

Choosing christening gifts for grandparents should be relatively easy, if they're hands on and always offering to care for the baby then a big present such as a hamper and again a photograph of the child could be good for them too. Smaller token christening presents such as a snow globe containing a photo of the baby might be more suitable for more distant and less involved grandparents however.

A personalized port gift with a newspaper from the day of the christening included in the wooden box is a very sophisticated present perfect for grandparents at a christening. It gives them a memento with which to remember the day (the newspaper) and also something to help celebrate with (the port!). It can be a delicious way to finish the meal following the christening too.

Gifts for the Baby:
A christening will always be an unmemorable affair for a tiny baby, who isn't yet developed enough to remember the day at all. If your baby is being baptized you may want to buy a couple of gifts for it yourself. Or if you're reading this article and actually about to be a guest at a christening then you could potentially use a few ideas for token christening presents to get for the child. By giving the child gifts the parents, god parents and grandparents all give the child mementos which prove the day was wonderful, (even if they themselves can't recall it.)

Here are a few of our ideas... A personalized egg cup can have the date of the christening added to it and used on a regular basis making it thoughtful but also useful. Meanwhile, a personalized money box can be super because it can help the child to save up some cash and learn about money management during its lifetime.

Christening photo albums can be a good gift for the small child too because they'll be a pleasure to look back over as the child grows up. A baby will never be able to remember the day but photographs will help to remind him or her that it did happen and show them how many people have loved them their whole life time!
