The perfect christening gift

A new baby has arrived, and you’re invited to the christening to celebrate with your loved ones. But what should you give the little citizen of the world as a christening gift? Finding the right gift can be tricky. You might consider giving a gift that the parents appreciate and can use in their everyday life. This can help them get started in their daily life together. Alternatively, you can buy a gift that the baby will love when he or she gets older. It will be an eternal reminder of an important day when you helped to celebrate him or her. We’ve gathered the best christening gifts for little boys and girls. Here’s our gift guide with ideas for christening gifts, name-giving and childbirth.

The baby enters the world

When a baby enters the world, it turns everything upside down for the new parents. Everyday life changes completely, and the family needs to adapt to the little one’s needs. The first weeks will be spent getting to know each other. Both the new baby and each other as parents, especially if it’s the first child. The family develops a whole new dynamic, and there are many impressions for everyone, and it’s about enjoying it and being in the moment – even if you lose a lot of sleep, because you'll undeniably do that. This baby bubble is magical and it’s a great time for new parents. Make sure you enjoy it for as long as possible.

Christening traditions

The christening is the first party to be held to celebrate the new baby. The party is a form of welcome for the baby, where the parents have the opportunity to proudly show him or her to the closest friends and family. It is therefore an important day and a happy event for parents.

The actual baptism is a ritual that originates from Christianity, where you register the baby in the Christian church. In early Christianity, only adults were baptised, but when the church became a national church in around 450, church baptism became the most common. When you christen your child, he or she becomes part of the Christian faith. It is followed up by religious education and confirmation, which confirms the child’s christening and marks the transition between childhood and adulthood. In many countries, it is a tradition for the child to wear a white, long christening gown. Lots of parents have a christening gown that has been passed down through generations of the family. It is therefore particularly meaningful. Often, the baby’s name is embroidered on the gown together with the other names that were already there. If the family does not have a christening gown, you can start the tradition yourself and pass the christening gown on to the child when it is their turn to become a parent.

Christening or name giving

Not everyone chooses to christen their baby. Instead, some people choose to hold a name-giving party, which takes place in the same way as the chirstening party – except for the ritual in the church. The naming of your little one is still a big day for parents who are delighted about their new family addition. Our selection of christening gifts can easily be used as naming gifts too. We have classic gifts, adorable gifts and functional gift wishes in this gift guide, which you can use to bring joy to the little wonder.

What should you wish for as a christening gift?

We have some great suggestions for christening gifts for boys and girls. You can choose classic gifts that can be given to both genders. For example, it could be a flag that marks all the  special milestone in the child’s life. The flag is a classic christening gift, and the best part of the gift is that it can be taken out every year on the child’s birthday as a lovely memory. You can also surprise the new parents with a high-quality design gift. A Kay Bojesen wooden figure is always guaranteed to make the recipients smile with gratitude. It can also be a functional gift that creates joy and memories day after day, year after year. The cute Kähler animal friends are decorated by hand, so no two are alike. This gives you a one-of-a-kind product that is heartfelt and can spread design delight in the child’s room.

What should a christening gift cost?

Our suggestions for christening gifts include gift ideas in different price ranges. A well-intentioned gift doesn't have to be expensive, and when thought is behind the action, it is usually well received. The most important thing is that the gift is given with love and that it is based on genuine interest in the family and the baby. Of course, the relationship you have with the child also pays an important role. If you are going to a godparent, or if it is your niece or grandchild, you will naturally want to buy a larger gift than if the baby was a distant relative. Here you can find gift ideas that suit both close and distant relationships. The gifts can also be given to both boys and girls. Today, you can buy many gender netural gifts too. 

A gift from the heart

Looking for the right christening gift? Delight the christening baby with a thoughtful and personal gift that will bring joy to hearts and homes for many years to come. Finding the right gift can be tricky, especially on an important day like a christening. Of course, you want to find something perfect that the baby and the parents can use and are happy with. The most important thing is that you given it some thought. If the gift comes from the heart, it's sure to be well received. The most important task of a gift is first and foremost to delight the person receiving it. Therefore, it is a good idea to think about how you can best create genuine joy. You can find inspiration on this page with beautiful christening gift ideas.

The classic christening gift: The flag

In addition to a copy of the Bible, the flag is perhaps one of the most classic christening gifts. At the same time, it's a safe gift to give – the parents are sure to appreciate it. You can also consider a different version of the flag and give the child Kay Bojesen’s Standard Carrier. The popular, hand-painted guard is inspired by one of Denmark’s national symbols from Amalienborg Palace Square and created by Kay Bojesen in 1942. This gift is guaranteed to bring joy and smiles to the christening day and every year on the birthday table.

The sweet gift: Wooden figure

Kay Bojesen’s imaginative designs are like a cherished friend who moves with you throughout your entire life – from your childhood bedroom to becoming a beloved design icon in your own home. This classic will always be well received and bring joy. That’s why you can give one of these iconic designs as a christening gift with confidence.

Whether you choose one of the beloved wooden animals, a rattle, hanging mobile or bed linen, you are guaranteed unparalleled quality and an iconic design that transcends time, space and style. The wooden figures have the benefit that they can stay with the child for a lifetime. When they're young, they will enjoy looking at the little monkey and see it hanging on the window sill, lamp or shelf. When they leave home, it will be an iconic design that reminds them of their childhood home, and when they have children of their own, it might be passed on to their new baby. These designs have been loved for decades and will continue to be style icons for many years to come. That’s why they make an ideal gift for a christening or naming party.

The practical gift

Perhaps you’re thinking that the baby won't be interested in his or her gift yet, so you’d rather give something that parents need in their everyday life. Obviously, in most cases the baby won't be able to use the gift on his/her own, but you can certainly find something that the baby will enjoy in his/her everyday life and which also benefits the parents. In the vast majority of cases, a practical gift will bring joy and be beneficial to both parents and baby, even though the gift is, of course, for the newest little citizen in the world.

A set of baby bed linen with a pretty motif or a hanging mobile in FSC®-certified beech with lovely songbirds and wooden balls in different colours. Both can be used as decorative elements in the child’s bedroom above the changing mat or the baby’s bed, giving the family’s youngest member peace and something nice to look at. Finding the right gift can be a difficult balancing act if you don't have a wish list. But this page offers gift inspiration with several wonderful gift ideas to choose from, and we’re sure you can find something that the baby and parents will appreciate both now and in the future.
