3 Thoughtful Christening Ideas to Help Welcome the New Addition to Your Family

Wednesday, October 08, 2014

Christening your baby is a wonderful way of introducing a new member into your family. It’s one of the most special milestones of a parent’s life. It’s a chance for friends and family to gather together and celebrate the birth of a new generation, and look forward to all the memories you’ll make in the years to come. So, in order to make this day as special as possible, it’s essential that you plan everything right down to the last detail.

Now we here at Homeaholic know just how much you’ve already got to think about. So, to help take some of that pressure off we’re going to share a few awesome Christening gift ideas. So, that when the day itself arrives, at least you’ve got at least one less thing to think about…

1. Traditional Gift with a bow

If you’re the old-fashioned type, you can’t go wrong with opting for a traditional gift such as Christening silver, or a hand-knitted baby blanket. The giving of a silver rattle or spoon is a tradition that dates back centuries. It’s a symbolic gesture that is supposed to help ensure that your child is blessed with wealth throughout their lives. This doesn’t necessarily just refer to financial wealth. It can also mean that they’ll be blessed with good health, a happy relationship and a successful career. After all, this kind of wealth holds a far greater value than anything that money could buy.

If you happen to be the creative type, a hand-knitted or embroidered baby blanket would also make a wonderful traditional gift. The lovely thing about this idea is that you can add patches to it over the coming years. It’s also something that your children may end up passing down to their own children. So, this is a gift that even future generations could go on to enjoy.

2. Camera Camera

Nowadays, many of us already have cameras on our cell phones, but depending on the model, the photographs that they produce may not always be of the greatest quality. That’s why on such a special day as a Christening, it’s worth investing in a good quality camera. Although this isn’t technically a Christening gift, it is something that will allow you to capture all of the big family occasions on film over the following years. From baby’s first tooth, right through to the first day of school. It’s a one-off investment that just keeps on giving and is something that the whole family will benefit from.

3. A Furry Friend Bunny

Sometimes the best gifts you can give are the simplest things of all. All children need a furry companion to act as a playmate by day, and a comforter at night. So, if you don’t have much to spend, giving your baby a soft toy is a good option to go for. If you  wanted to make it extra personal, you could even have a go at making one yourself!

Any one of these gift ideas is a great way to mark such an occasion and is guaranteed to help make your baby’s special day one to remember.
