Best Christening Gifts For Girls, My Top Baptism Presents
Christening Gifts for Girls.
If you are looking for Christening gifts for girls, either for your own baby, or because you are going to be a Godparent or guest at a baby;s Baptism, I have put together my top Christening Gift ideas.
If you are looking for Christening gifts for Boys, please take a look at my other hub – although inevitably, many of the gifts are suitable for either girls or boys.
The tradition of giving presents to mark special occasions in a person’s life goes back far beyond the dawn of Christianity.
Christening gifts, given on the occasion of a baby’s Baptism probably go back to the Christmas story itself when the Wise Men brought their most costly gifts to the Baby Jesus.
Malden Baby's Baptism Picture Frame, Silver
This lovely gift is a silkscreen glass picture frame with glare resistant glass.
It has an inscription, “May the Lord bless you today and always”.
This frame would be suitable for a picture of up to 4” x 6” and is a really lovely keepsake to treasure the memory of a little girl’s Christening day.
Mud Pie Baby Classic Keepsakes Silver-Plate Round Box, Cross
This delightful little silver box, 2” in diameter is designed to be a treasure box. It is lined with white satin and decorated with beading and an embossed cross.
It comes from the Classic Keepsakes range from Mud Pie Baby, a company that has been producing high quality gifts for little ones for more than 25 years.
This treasure box would be perfect for keeping a treasure such as a first tooth, or in the British tradition, to hold a gold sovereign or half sovereign as an investment for the Baby’s future.
Mary Meyer Christening Blanket, Lamb
Mary Meyer has been making adorable, safe and fun soft toys like this one for more than 75 years.
The embroidered words on the blanket are “Bless this child” and the lamb has an embroidered silver cross.
Her First Bible
This book is a joy, a first Bible by Melody Carlson that you will want to share over and over again.
The delightful illustrations by Trish Tenud will captivate your child and the words will go into her heart and be a joy forever.
My prayer is that you will have many special times with your little one as you share God’s word together.
Precious Moments "Baptized In His Name" Girl Figurine
This beautiful figurine is like a little angel and represents the occasion of baptism.
It depicts a baby girl in her christening gown who is wearing a gold cross at her throat.
This is a hand painted Porcelain bisque figure and should only be used indoors and cleaned by light dusting.
The figurine comes in a gift box made from recycled materials. Measurements 5.2” by 3.2” by 2” and weighs nine ounces.
Baby's First Book of Prayers
This book would make a lovely accompaniment to the First Bible listed above. It is beautifully presented as a padded and embossed edition of a First Book of Prayers and is a lovely way for parents and grandparents to share first prayers with a young child. This book, like the First Bible is by Mary Carlson.
Gund Baby Jesus Loves Me Musical Lamb, Cream
This really is an absolutely adorable gift from Gund.
The ‘Jesus Loves Me’ Musical Lamb is a wind-up toy that measures about ten and a half inches in height and plays the hymn, Jesus loves me, whilst gently moving his head.
The little lamb has a satin ribbon at his neck embroidered with the words ‘Jesus loves me’, it is filled with soft polyester filling, it’s fleece is made of curly white plush fabric and the facial features are embroidered on.
Because this is a wind-up toy, it is not machine washable, but the surface can be sponge cleaned.
Serenity 2 Sterling Silver Girls Pearl Christening Bracelet
I like the fact that it is solid 925 sterling silver, not silver plate as with so many gift items these days.
It features the prettiest freshwater pearls coupled with semi-precious stones and lead free crystals to make just the daintiest and sweetest bracelet I have seen for a long time.
I was surprised that this item did not cost a lot more than the price tag to be honest, certainly the perceived value is much higher, especially for a solid silver item that has been hand made in the USA.
An Irish Blessing For a Baptism Day
"May the road rise to meet you,
may the wind be always at your back,
may the sun shine warm upon your face,
the rains fall soft upon your fields and,
until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand."
Baptism Christening Gifts for Godmother "With Love" Girl Picture Frame Package
My final item is a little bit different, not a Christening gift to the baby girl at all, but a Christening day present from the baby herself that would be a cherished gift by either Grandmother or Godmother.
It is beautifully presented, everything is beautifully co-ordinated and the set comprises the frame, ribbon, gift card and gift box. Measuring eight inches by seven, it is designed to hold a photo 3.5” by 5” that can either be displayed on the easel supplied or will hang on the wall.
What I like is that because the set is just about impossible to break in the mail, you can post a special christening day memento to your loved ones to remind them of baby’s special day. A really lovely and thoughtful gift to say thank-you to Godparents and Grandparents.
My Selection of Christening Gifts for Baby Girls
I hope that my selection of my favorite Christening gifts for baby girls has helped you, either to choose something from the range of gifts reviewed, or sparked inspiration for another great gift for a lucky baby. Either way, I know it will be a thoughtful present to be treasured for years to come.
I have tried to choose both religious and secular gifts as, whilst it is traditional to give a religious gift on this very significant day in a Christian family’s life, it is certainly true that there will be many people who, although they do not subscribe to the Christian faith, still want to give a special gift to a child on her Christening day.
