Gifts for Christenings or New Babys

A new baby is a celebration of life. You may find you are invited to a traditional chuch christening where a ceremony with god parents who take an oat to protect and teach will be undertaken. Alternatively you could have been invited to a naming ceremony a less religious ceremony which celebrates the birth of a baby and welcomg them into the family unit.

Here are the top gifts to buy for a new born baby:

Silver Jug engraved with their Name, Date of Birth & Your Message and names

Silver Hand Braclet

Silver Charm Braclet, normally given by godparents where you buy a new charm every year of their life

Delicate blanket, usually made from fine cotton and lace

Hand/Foot Casting kit; these allow parents to take a casting of their childs foot or hand in a copper or bronze finish. A traditional keep sake.

Baby Album, which allows parents to take notes of their childs development

Photo frames are always a good call

Items for the nursey such as some traditional wooden toys, baby clock, a painting, a crib/cot mobile,

Bedding is another idea, such as a sheet and blacket cover set or perhaps some pillows or cushions for the cot

Clothing has becomes gift since the gifts above are usualy purchase by close family or friends. Always buy a little larger than you want so the clothes can br grown into. Basics are usually; babygrows, bibs, hats & booties.

Now i will let you into my perfect baby gift. I normally get a personalised gift, a wooden picture frame which inside i have a thick piece of white card which i have written the following poem on:

Sometimes I might upset you
Just because I'm small
By leaving fingerprints of mine~
On a table, chair, or wall.

But everyday I grow a bit
And I'll be big one day
When all my tiny fingerprints
Have long been cleaned away.

So keep these prints of my hands,
To help you recall
Just how big my fingers were
That time when I was small

Once you have written this leave a little room for some baby hand prints whic the parents can print later. Then buy some baby paints Blue, yellow, red & green work well. This means you have given them all they need to finish the present.
