A christening is an important time in a baby's life. It signifies the act of dedicating the baby's life to Jesus and the church until he is old enough to confirm his life on his own. The christening party, after the ceremony, is a way to thank your friends and family for attending and being an influence in the baby's life. One great way to say "Thank you" is to give a meaningful favour that the guest can enjoy.
A cross keychain is an inspirational gift that can be placed on the guest's keychain as a heavenly reminder throughout the day. For a higher-end favour, purchase a silver-cross keychain with a small gemstone or other embellishment. You can make a cross keychain by cutting it out of wood and finishing it, or forming it out of beads or porcelain.
A plantable cross is a memorable favour that your guests can use and remember every day, because it grows into flowers. Plantable crosses are made from seed paper. Seed paper is paper that has been ground up, and mixed with water to make a mush. Flower seeds are added to the mixture, and then it is flattened, dried, and cut into a cross shape. The cross is attached to a card with the name of the baby who was christened and the date. The guest can take the card home, place the cross under ground, and beautiful flowers will begin to grow. On the card, write something such as "Sarah's Christening: Watch her Faith Grow."
Candles are a gift that everyone appreciates for their scents and decorative appeal. The votive holders are available in clear or coloured glass decorated with an engraved cross, or a silver or gold cross. A scented candle goes inside. Wrap the votive in a piece of sheer tulle and tie a bow around the top of the tulle, pulling it tightly closed. Attach a tag that says the name of the event and date.
