"If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children, I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life" ― Rachel Carson
Apart from the gift that the fairies give to the baby when he or she is being christened, there are the ones that friends, relatives, and parents also need to give to this child on this auspicious occasion, which would be a combination of their best wishes and love for him/her.
There are many people who cherish these gifts as mementos when they grow up; therefore, the one you buy should be such that it reflects your feelings for the person and whenever he or she looks at it, it would remind him or her of you. Here, we would discuss some presents, which you can give on the special occasion of christening or baptism.
It can be a tiny cross or a small heart or a flower or a half moon. Some people also give small-engraved tablets as charms, which can always be worn by the baby, even when he or she grows up.
★ You can also gift a christening gown, which should preferably be white, and the baby would look like an angel in that gown, but as is obvious, this can be a really nice present only for a baby girl. For a baby boy, you can gift a bonnet, which would have a head cover, with laces on the border and ribbon ties.
★ You can also present the baby its first Bible, which would also have pages for the parents to write his/her reactions and responses and the important events that occurred in his/her life. It also has spaces where his/her hand and footprints can be recorded.
★ You can also gift a casting kit to the parents, so that they can get a mold of your baby's fist or its feet casting and mounts are also provided so that the baby or the parents can keep it as a showpiece in their house.
