The Christening of a son or daughter is one of the most important social ceremonies any young family can experience, and it’s a day of celebration for the baby’s parents, God parents and other members of the family. At this time, the baby is too young to keep any memories relating to the big day, so it is up to the parents and the family of the child to make sure that there are plenty of things to look back on when the child gets older, and what better a way to do that then by gifting a present which is truly unique? In this article, we will take a closer look at some of the more unusual, individual and quirky Christening gifts that money can buy.
Traditional versus Quirky Christening Gifts
One thing that can help a child to relive the day of their Christening is a special Christening keepsake. The primary Christening gift that parents purchase for their child is the Christening gown, and some parents often use Christening gowns that they wore, or that have been handed down through the generations. For other members of the family and for the God parents, there is the small matter of purchasing a suitable Christening gift or keepsake that can be enjoyed by both the parents and the child. The more traditional forms of christening gift include blankets, bibs, bonnets, engraved jewellery and much more. However, more people are looking for christening gifts that are a lot more unique, and even quirky, which can be beneficial, as more traditional gifts can lose their appeal and uniqueness over time. Let’s face it, not every christening gift has to be a trinket to be treasured forever (many of them will eventually find their way on to a Car Boot sale). Why not consider a gift which both the children and parents can enjoy immediately?
