Christenings are a special occasion fundamentally about welcoming a child into the Christian faith and the celebration often sees family and friends coming together to celebrate.
If you have been invited to a Christening you may be wondering whether it is customary for guests to buy Christening presents for the child and if so, what type of gifts are appropriate. Although there is no rule that says you have to, generally most people will bring something to give the child to mark the occasion.
Unlike birthdays, toys aren't normally considered for baby Christening gifts and instead, special items that can be held onto as keepsakes such as jewellery, decorative items and books are given instead. With this in mind, we have put together a list of Disney Christening gifts that are sure to be perfect for the occasion.

Best For A Gift From Godparents
Winnie The Pooh First Tooth And Curl Set
Traditionally, silver was seen as a good gift for a new baby as it symbolised their independence once they got older. This custom originates from the Tudor and then the Victorian period as silver had value as a currency. As a result of this, Christening gifts from Godparents were often items made from silver such as rattles, cutlery and coins. If you are searching for Disney gifts you can give your Godchild on their Christening day that upholds this tradition, then this set of silver plated keepsake boxes could be a perfect choice. One box is designed to keep the child's first curl and has Winnie The Pooh on the lid. The other box is for their first tooth and has Tigger sitting on the lid. Each keepsake box measures three centimetres in height, eight centimetres in length and 137mm in width. These Godparents gifts come in a fabric pouch inside a presentation box to keep them safe and add that extra special touch.
