The baptism is one of the most important events in a person’s life, whether he or she will be christened as a baby or as an adult. The idea of giving christening gifts dates back to the time when Jesus Christ was born, and the magi came and presented Him with gold, frankincense, and myrrh as their offering. Since then, it has been a tradition in a lot of Christian denominations to give presents to a baby when he or she goes through baptism.
Before you choose unique christening gifts for the person’s baptism, you will first need to determine his or her age. As already mentioned, a person can be baptized either as a child or as an adult, depending on the Christian denomination he or she belongs to, so choose a gift that will be appropriate for his or her age. You will also need to consider the religious affiliation of the person, because there are certain gifts that will only be appropriate for certain churches and not for others, like rosaries.
Gifts traditionally given for a person’s baptism are religious in nature.
