Unconventional Christening Gifts
Being a godfather or a godmother is an honor but how to make a special and unforgettable present for your godchild? Here are some more unconventional and memorable christening gifts ideas for babies if you have already given to your godson or goddaughter traditional gifts like silver spoons, cross or clothes.
Sponsorships as non-traditional christening gifts
Think about different kinds of sponsorships and charity. The possibilities are endless here. For example, you can sponsor a tree for your godchild. The most memorable part of this sponsorship is of course if the tree is actually in the town of the godchild. At request, you can install a plaque with the baby’s name at this “godfather tree” with the opportunity to commemorate this significant day. The sponsorship for a tropical tree is also very fancy.
Animal sponsorships are another idea for a christening present, whether it is for zoo animals or for a donkey on the farm around the corner. You can sponsor a fixed amount of care and food for the chosen animal. The godchild accompanied by parents can always visit the animal whenever they want.
Animal and tree sponsorships can be completed for different periods. Thus, there are sponsorships that are valid for one year and may be renewed repeatedly, and sponsorships that run from the beginning for several years.
“Name a star” gift
You can ‘buy’ your grandchild a star as a gift. There are many star-naming services available. This gift is not as expensive as is commonly believed. Depending on how much money you want to spend, you can order a larger or smaller star named after your grandson. You will receive a certificate with the official name of the star, its sky position and the message that the name of the star was registered with the International Star Registry. A congratulatory award complements the certificate. What could be better for your godson or goddaughter than to look at the starry sky at night and to know that there is a star with his/her own name up there?
