What is "The Difference Between Baptism and Christening?"
The terms "Baptism" and "Christening" are often used interchangeably but there is a slight difference. Christening refers to the naming ceremony (it means "give a name to" - this is where the baby receives their Christian name) where as baptism is “a rite of washing with water as a sign of religious purification and consecration.”
Baptism - the ceremony of admitting a person into Christianity.
Christening - the act of baptizing and giving a name to an infant.
After the ceremony, close friends and family usually gather for a reception. Guests can bring special gifts such as keepsakes, money, and personalized items to honor the baby.
Some meaningful Christening gifts for boys might include a special plate, cup and saucer set; A silver cup or spoon that have been personalized with their name and Christening/Baptism date; A special blanket; A classic children's book.
Some great Christening gifts for girls are a special dress, a soft baby blanket that has their name monogrammed on it, a bible, baby Christening jewelry such as a pearl necklace or bracelet; a silver spoon, cup or saucer.
A Christening party or reception can be as fancy or as low-key as you wish. We have come up with a bundle of ideas for Christening decorations, centerpiece ideas, food, punch, cakes and more!
