Newborn Guide | Gift Ideas for a Christening

A christening is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion, so choosing the right gift to honour the day is an important decision. Do you go traditional with a silver keepsake? Or opt for something fun that the baby can enjoy right away? If in doubt, beautiful and functional additions to a nursery are always a popular choice, especially if they can be handed down to and enjoyed by future members of the family. 

If you want to step up your gifting game, it’s always nice to mark the occasion with a personalised item that displays the date or the little one's name. We have blankets, baby robes and gift hampers that can be custom embroidered to really set your gift apart from the rest — you can thank us later.

A Touch of Tradition

Gifting in silver for a christening or baptism is a centuries-old tradition signifying luck and prosperity. You’ll often find this taking the form of a silver spoon, or a St Christopher coin (the patron saint of travellers) which offers a symbol of protection for all their future adventures.


Our silver-plated collections from the likes of English Trousseau, Tales From The Earth and Bam Bam make wonderfully meaningful gifts that are sure to be cherished by the whole family for years to come. And just because they’re traditional, doesn't mean they can't be practical too. A silver-handled brush and comb set will make a charming and useful addition to the nursery when their hair grows, and trinket boxes are perfect for displaying proudly on a nursery shelf until they're old enough to fill it with little treasures.

Love Now, Treasure Later

If you're going down a less traditional route and a fun gift is what you’re after, then you could consider something like a hand-and-foot casting or ink printing kit. These thoughtful gifts deliver twofold on sentimentality: there’s the memory created through making the cast together as a family, and there's the keepsake they can cherish forever.


Arts and crafts not their style? A teddy will be a welcome guest on the big day. Our handsome Beatrice & George bear comes complete with an embroidered crest on one foot and a big satin bow. The little one can love their new companion right away and treasure him for years to come. It can even be passed down to their own children — it really is the gift that keeps on giving.

Say It with a Gift Set

Why give one gift when you can give two (or three or four)? The ultimate fail-safe when it comes to gifting, our sets come in all shapes and sizes. An added bonus of choosing a gift set is that they come beautifuly packaged, so it’ll save you the hassle of wrapping it yourself. We love a combination of practical and sweet, like Sophie la Girafe’s blanket and teether gift set. For the eco-conscious parents, we can't get enough of Bam Bam Sustainable's Stay Time set, which comes with a teether and a bamboo comb, brush and toothbrush, all housed in an adorable mini suitcase. 


Nothing says welcome to the world like one of our baby gift hampers. Each hamper is thoughtfully pieced together with blankets, bibs and babygrows, soft toys and much more, and there are lots of themes to choose from, including classic pink or blue, safari and dinosaur. There are even options for personalisation to add that extra special touch. Each hamper is presented in a lovely gift box, ready to take centre stage on the gift table.
