    Default Christening present ideas

    Hi everyone just wondering what are some christening gift ideas for a good friends 6 month old ds? Would a general present clothing etc be acceptable or should I stick to the traditional gifts?

    We just had our daughters christened and I preferred the non-traditional gifts. I probably wouldn't get clothes though I'd stick with a keep sake one of my favourite gifts was a silver photo frame with a teddy and love heart for the photo with their names engraved. A dinner set was another one I loved.

    I loved the traditional christening gifts like certificate holders, jewelry box, money box, photo frames etc. You can get some beautiful ones on eBay.

    When it's a Christening/Baptism, I tend to give Rosary beads, Childrens Bible, Crucifix necklaces, St Christopher necklaces and things like that.

    My kids have been given photo albums, photo frames, jewellery boxes, clothes, kiddy Bibles and lot's of silverware.
