Personalised Christening Gifts from Godparents
The tradition of a Christening ceremony dates back as far as the 2nd century, with inscriptions and biblical references throughout history noting the ceremony as an important symbolic moment in a child’s life.
That still stands today and although ceremonies such as naming days are gaining in popularity, the Christening remains a highly special moment for the whole family, godparents and the community.
Are you a godparent and you’re unsure what would make a perfect Christening gift? Don’t be worried, there are many modern twists on the gifts traditionally given in this special religious ceremony. This includes personalised christening gifts that will be memorable in years to come.
The purpose of a godparent is to act almost as a second parent to the child, and to be there for support and advice.
And, thought to have evolved from the story of Jesus Christ’s birth, godparents have been giving special gifts since the 4th century, just like the three kings gave gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
Of course, history shows traditional gifts given at Christenings did update a little bit from what the three kings gave.
Spoons and other items made from silver became popular godparent gifts as a symbol of giving value and wealth to the youngster.
But why not think outside the box and give something that will be of sentimental value for a lifetime with a personalised Christening gift?
