A baby's christening is one of the most important events of the parents' lives, and you can express your congratulations to them by giving a christening-related greeting card as a gift. You can either purchase a card with a message inside or create your own personalised card. When shopping for a card, look for one that has neat designs on it and enough space to write a message to the couple.
Bible Verses About Children
One idea for a personalised card is to write in large letters on the front of the card three scriptures that discuss the blessings of children. A good verse to write is Isaiah 54:13: "All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children." Another good verse is Psalm 127, which states that children are a heritage from the Lord. On the inside of the card, write a short inspirational message to the couple.
Family Quotes About Parenthood
If your family members want to contribute thoughts to your christening card, have each of them each write a wise saying on the inside of the card that pertains to parenthood. Be sure to include the name of each relative who wrote the quotes in the card. On the front of the card, paste a family picture and underneath it write a title such as, "Congratulations on Your Christening from the Family."
Note of Encouragement
Another idea is to use the card to write a letter of encouragement to the new parents. Let them know that you think they will be wonderful parents to the new baby. Also offer to help them in any way that's needed.
If the christening will be held near a holiday such as Easter or Christmas, you can purchase or create a card with a holiday theme. For example, if you're shopping for a Thanksgiving-themed card, look for something that may have designs of a cornucopia, a turkey or a dinner table filled with plates of food.
