A christening is time of celebration for family and friends commemorating the baby's official introduction into her parent's faith and the church community. Christening gifts can range from casual and inexpensive to lavish keepsakes. If you want to splurge on a special baby in your life, choose a gift that the baby will cherish and pass on one day to her own children.

Have the baby's name, christening date and location engraved on a unique piece of sterling silver tableware such as Paloma Picasso's adorably elegant porringer bowel for a £390. The radiant sterling silver will illuminate the baby's special day for many years to come. For a more unique silver gift try silver grooming accessories such as Tiffany's Elsa Peretti heart or rectangular-shaped baby brushes for £126.


You're never too young for diamonds. A diamond pendant christening necklace is a stunning gift that will be passed down for generations. As the baby grows she can restring the pendant on a larger chain until she has a baby of her own. Roberto Coin's Tiny Treasures collection makes a gorgeous diamond cross pendant that measures 16 inches long and will give her christening day extra sparkle for a cost of £260.

The Gown

For a close friend or family member, giving a stunning christening gown will fill everyone's heart with beauty. The Dior silk christening gown makes all other dresses seem like dust. Delicately pleated with a long airy train, this is truly a dress for an angel and costs £858. After the christening, you or another relative can have the gown framed next to an announcement card with the baby's name, date and location.
