A Christening or Baptism is a lovely milestone for a new family, a traditional ceremony that welcomes a child into Christianity. This special occasion is celebrated in a church by baptism with water and is the start of their journey into the Christian faith. We are sometimes asked - is a Baptism different to a Christening? The answer is no, there is no difference between a Christening or Baptism service, some churches use the word Christening and others use the word Baptism, the moment a child has water wiped or poured onto their head is the moment of baptism and the service is called a Christening.
We are also sometimes asked – what is a Naming Day celebration or what is a naming ceremony? Simply put, it is a non-religious equivalent of a Christening, where family and friends celebrate the arrival and naming of a new baby. A naming ceremony can take place soon after birth or several months later. We have some beautiful personalised naming ceremony gift ideas for you to choose from.
Choosing godparents is an important part of the Christening celebration, it is traditional to choose three, but recent trends have been to choose more. If you have been chosen for this special role then we can help you find the perfect Christening gift from a godparent. If you are looking for Christening gifts for a girl or Christening gifts for a boy, we have some lovely traditional English pewter Christening gifts that make a thoughtful keepsake Christening gift.
Of course, a major part of a Christening ceremony is to celebrate a child's name and this is why a personalised Christening gift is so special. If you are looking for an unusual Christening gift, or even a unique Christening gift, then a personalised Christening present is the way to go. A personalised gift is always extra-special for a Christening, Baptism or Naming Day and we have a wide range of personalised Christening gifts to choose from. Our personalised soft toys make a lovely Christening gift, as do our traditional white knitted personalised Christening blankets and our personalised story books. A personalised Christening gift is perfect for a girl or a boy and will be treasured for years to come.
