Top 10 Baptism Gifts

Congratulations! We’re guessing that if you’re here, a little bundle of joy in your life is getting baptized soon. And when it comes to brainstorming baptism gift ideas, you’re not alone. Did you know that The Church of England alone carries out more than 10,000 christenings each month? That’s a lot of gifts!

That’s also a lot of people running around searching for the perfect baby baptism gift. But have no fear. We’re here to share with you our list of the best gift ideas–all of which can be conveniently ordered online.

 

Pretty

 THE CLASSIC. Ah, Tiffany’s. Coveted around the world, the silver comb comes with a pink or blue tassel. Will it actually get used? Doesn’t matter–it’s an heirloom piece that will always be treasured and remembered as a baptism gift.

THE KEEPSAKE. Similar to keeping the child’s first tooth, the first haircut is symbolic in many cultures. The silver plated hair lock box from Harrods is a sweet gift for both baby and mother when the time comes to save a lock from that very first haircut.

THE FRENCH GIFT. The Little Prince gourmette–otherwise known in English as the chain bracelet–is one of the top baby baptism gifts en France. This bracelet from Monnaie de Paris comes in silver and gold and may be engraved with your favorite little one’s name and birthdate.

THE SILVER SPOON. It’s been said that a silver spoon in the mouth will bring about riches. The silver spoon has a long history dating all the way back to the 15th century, so even if it’s hard to believe that old proverb, it’s still a timeless gift the baby’s family will love. This one is from the classic Scottish company Edinburgh Silver.

THE MODERN GIFT. These lovely paperweights from Uncommon Goods contain a dandelion seed puff in all its glory–a beautiful reminder that nature is ever-present, even in a newborn’s bedroom.

THE OUTFIT. Often a family’s baptismal gown is passed down from one generation to another. When that’s not already the case with your loved one’s family, Caremour's beautiful gowns and accessories of heirloom quality are a great way to help start the hand-me-down tradition.

THE PIGGY BANK. The elephant is strong and mindful of all things. Its presence can remind a child to emulate these qualities and urge them to start saving for a bright future! This particular “piggy” bank comes from Pottery Barn.

THE SILVER CUP. Tradition upholds the symbolic silver cup as a sacred part of nourishment and communion. We love the celtic ones from John Swan.

THE TRINKET DISH. We love these little dishes from Susabellas. They’re simple, customizable, and can be both classic and modern. It’s the perfect place for love notes, baseballs, and of course–the rosary!

THE ROSARY. The rosary will be used throughout the baby’s life, so what better time to give her her first rosary than at her christening? Willow & Bee makes a beautiful custom rosary with the child’s birthstone, which makes for a perfect for baby baptism gift.
