Other Christening Presents

Other christening presents

Although there is no absolute expectation that guests at a christening (excluding the godparents) will give presents, it is a good idea to mark a very special occasion.

Guests at a christening may choose to give more transitory presents than the godparents, and a great range is available. Suitable presents include: money boxes (perhaps with a contribution inside), china (there are special baby ranges availible), bedding (a super-soft embroidered blanket, for example), photograph albums, photograph frames, or framed pictures for the nursery wall.

Wooden or cuddly toys (though preferably not plastic) are also perfectly acceptable. A collectable Steiff teddy is a good way of giving something special that a child will actually enjoy.
