Baptism & Christening Gifts for Baby Boys

A first baby bible is an appropriate present.

The christening or baptism of a baby boy is a special occasion, not only for the child but for friends and relatives who are able to attend the ceremony and witness the event. Oftentimes, the parents will have a small gathering after the ceremony at their home or a restaurant where the child is further celebrated. Although never required, it is customary to take a small gift in recognition of this religious milestone.

Religious Gifts for a Christening or Baptism

Since the day is one steeped in religion, religious items are often purchased as a gift. Items such as a child’s rosary, a first baby bible, or a sterling silver wall cross are all appropriate presents. Lambs are also a wonderful symbol with a subtle religious touch. Choose a cuddly lamb plush toy or a snuggly blanket with a lamb motif.

Non-Religious Gifts

If you’d prefer to give a non-religious gift, there are many to choose from. Consider a linen baby pillow, a personalized baby bank, or picture frame in which the parents can place their favorite photo from the day.

Whether you buy a traditional religious gift or take a more unique approach to the christening or baptism gift, it will become a treasured keepsake that the baby boy will have for the rest of his life.
