Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby, Archie, was christened earlier this month. Archie’s baptism made headline news, as it should be for every baby — what a milestone!
A christening, which usually occurs alongside a baptism, offers the infant a Christian name. This ceremony is a momentous occasion for many faiths because it symbolizes the child’s admission into the Christian faith.
Baby Christening Gifts
What we didn’t hear about with Archie’s christening were the gifts he received; I can only imagine the grandeur. If you’ve been invited to witness or partake in a christening ceremony, you’ll want to bring a gift that is as meaningful as the occasion. You can do a google search for ideas including books, artwork or stuffed bears.
I believe a christening is an occasion that calls for the timeless allure of silver. It is so appealing and so meaningful, but it’s also unrealistic because you have to keep it polished. And, let’s face it, rare is the parent that allows their child to manhandle silver.
So when I say a baby christening is worthy of silver, I mean something that looks and feels like silver — but without the drawbacks.
Baby Christening Gift Ideas
Below are my top three baby christening gift ideas. They are all things babies love to play with and enjoy. How can I be so confident? Because I make them!
I designed these Kleynimals to be “practical” christening keepsakes that stimulate a baby’s sense of sight, touch and sound:
These non-toxic stainless steel toy keys have no sharp edges. They are dishwasher safe, making it easy for you to keep them germ-free. As a bonus, you can order them with personalization, which is perfect christening gift for a baby boy or baby girl.
Our flatware is the perfect size for baby’s hands and helps them master the art of self-feeding. Babies know when you’re using metal, but they’re using plastic; our utensils make them feel like the big deal they are.
Remember the polished silver rattle you received as a christening keepsake? Probably not, because your parents tucked it away in a box on the shelf. But babies will remember their heirloom-quality Kleynimals rattle.
If and when you need a baby christening gift — for boys or girls — consider Kleynimals. You can shop on our website. I’m tempted to send Kleynimals to little Archie so he has a gift he can actually enjoy. (I’m betting most of the offerings got tucked away in a royal closet.)
