Unique Christening Gifts
Having a baby christened is a truly special day where friends and family come together to celebrate the arrival of a beautiful new life. Whether you’re a doting grandparent, a proud uncle or auntie, or any other loved one, finding the perfect unique christening gift for the guest of honour can sometimes leave us lacking a little inspiration. Don’t worry though, we’re here to lend a helping hand. Here at Moonpig, we have plenty of ideas to help you celebrate the little one’s big day in style.
Baby Handprint Gift Set
Is there anything more adorable than a baby’s tiny little hands? A baby handprint gift set is the perfect way to capture a moment, giving loved ones the perfect keepsake to look back at when their little bundle of joy isn’t quite so little and is more concerned about borrowing your money for a night out.
It may seem like only two minutes since you first met your niece or nephew, but time flies, and before you know it little he or she will be on solid foods. A ‘Guess How Much I Love You’ Baby’s 1st Breakfast Set is a thoughtful gift to help make baby’s first meal especially memorable, and it’s joined by Little Nutbrown Hare. We’re not sure the food will stay on the plate and not on mum and dad’s white kitchen walls...
First Year Photo Frame
A first-year photo frame will help new parents keep a memorable storyline of all those precious moments one doesn’t want to miss. Whether it’s the first smile that makes the heart skip and sleepless nights worthwhile, or their face light up after the first lick of an ice cream, preserving those special memories is a reminder of how far the little one has come.
Keep your little one's mind busy by putting them to work building with some Peter Rabbit Wooden Picture Blocks.
A Cute Soft Toy
A Beatrix Potter ‘My First Flopsy’ or ‘My First Peter Rabbit’ is a perfect companion for a baby to snuggle up with! And, for babies discovering sights and sounds for the first time, an Organic Diplodocus Rattle will keep them entertained and learning for hours on end. Or cuddle up to a classic with The Very Hungry Caterpillar Book and Toy Gift Set.
Toys & Gift Set’s
Did you know looking at bright colours and listening to the voice of their loved ones helps babies learn? The Peter Rabbit My First Little Library Book Set is the perfect gift to open a world of wonderful tales. They could head on an adventure with the Guess How Much I Love You Book and Plush Set. Or why not the Winnie the Pooh & Piglet Cart? Your little one will love the bright colours of these classic characters.
Once a baby is sitting up and learning to use those tiny hands, getting them a gift they can use for playtime is perfect. For the budding musician in your life, why not consider a Lion and Frog Maraca Set? They will immediately fall in love with the cute characters, bright colours, and sounds they can create. It might even start a passion for music. Just get ready for mum and dad to blame you in the teen years when their quiet house is shattered by drum practice.
Saving for the Future
Whether it’s an early start on tuition fees or just a few pennies to spend when they’re old enough to toddle to the shops with mum, a piggy bank can be a really exciting part of growing up. Investing in a Bambino First Pennies Pig Money Bank could be the perfect christening gift for those parents who want to put some spare change away for toys like a new bike, or even just a dash to the sweet shop, where dad can try his best to steal a few of his favourites from the little one.
Something for the Parents
A new baby often has a cot full of gifts when they’re first born. So, how about something for the parents to use? A ‘Welcome Little One’ candle could be the perfect way for a frazzled mum and dad to wind-down after a long day of chasing their little crawler. Alternatively, a Personalised Mini Blue Hat Knit Set will give the parents the opportunity to make something personal for their little one whilst finally getting the chance to catch up on Game of Thrones.
