Giving Jewelry As Christening Presents
Giving the gift of jewelry is a way to give precious christening presents. Be it silver or gold, many people appreciate the tradition behind the jewelry. While it is not that common to give little boys this type of present, baby girls are the usual recipient of these after the christening.
To start, some people give charm bracelets. With a charm bracelet the child can grow into it. Unlike a silver bracelet which the child can grow out of very soon! You also get the benefit of adding charms to it as the child grows, each piece expressing your love and hope for her future.
As they grow up and have various life events, a new charm can commemorate them and enhance your bond. Don't be alarmed if they do not always wear it though - such a precious christening gift could get destroyed, so they are best left as a keepsake as the child matures.
Are the child's ears pierced? If so consider giving some earrings. Earrings with pearls on a stud would look good. Silver studs would be very nice too.
For necklaces, some people choose to give A St. Christopher necklace to the child. The symbolism is that St. Christopher can protect the child on his life's journeys.
As with any gift though, be aware that the child will soon outgrow the present. This is not to say they do like it, or would not appreciate you buying it. Rather, it's just that as kids grow they will stop wearing them - but don't fret, they will still keep them and look back as adults with a fondness for their christening presents.
