While children seem to have bedrooms full of toys, giving the gift of toys to a child as their christening gift is a great way to go. If you want to make sure that the gift you are giving is used on a daily basis, and your money will not be wasted, a toy is sure to be a hit. There are a wide range of children’s toys that you can choose from. It may be advisable to purchase toys that are within the child’s age range, so that they can fully benefit from your gift. Wooden toys are perfect for those that like giving traditional presents. With the current resurgence of vintage themed gifts, wooden toys are perfect for christening gifts and they look truly splendid. Wooden toys include shape sorters and pull along toys. Both the parents and the child will adore this gift.
Money is a very traditional gift to give at a christening. Many people choose to open bank accounts for their child and will deposit the money into said account once the christening is over. Money is not an impersonal gift when it comes to christening celebrations. Many people choose to give the gift of money to help with the financial aspects of raising children. As we all know, the cost of raising a child is always increasing so it will help both the child and the family with these increasing costs. After all, food, clothing and toys do not come cheap.
Like money, bedding is very traditional gift to bear. Many people opt for super soft embroidered blankets, usually depicting a teddy bear and the child’s initials on it. Bedding is a lovely gift to give, particularly if it is personalised with the child’s commemorative details. This can include their initials, or their full name, their date of birth and the date of their christening. This unusual, yet traditional, keepsake will be revered within the family for years and is a beautiful gift to give. There will not be many people giving this kind of gift. It truly is something special. You never know, this may become something of a family heirloom in many years to come.
