Christian baby gifts
These Christian baby gifts are perfect for Christian parents
The birth of a child is a wondrous event that holds much significance for the Christian parent, as Christians look upon each child as a gift and blessing directly from God. When buying a gift for new parents, there are many Christian baby gifts and baby products that can help bring a sense of something sacred to the occasion.
It used to be tradition for Christian families to have a family Bible in which they recorded marriages, births, and deaths. This tradition has become less common, but that doesn’t make it any less meaningful. Giving a beautifully illustrated and bound Bible to commemorate the birth of a first child is a thoughtful gift. A children’s story Bible or “baby’s first” Bible is also a good choice for a baby gift. The Jesus Storybook Bible and The Beginner’s Bible are two excellent choices.
Most new mothers love to have a baby book to record those precious first days of their newborn’s life. Many Christian bookstores and online retailers offer baby books with a Scriptural theme and with Christian graphics and illustrations.
Picture books are always a welcome gift, and many Christian authors have written beautiful picture books. If the new mother or mother-to-be is a reader, then chances are, she is anxious to start sharing books with her new child. Look for children’s titles by Max Lucado: Hermie, You Are Special, and Because I Love You are all wonderful Also great for gift giving: The Tale of Three Trees by Angela Hunt and the Veggie Tales series.
Many mothers love to surround their babies with beautiful things that hold special meaning. While most mothers will have a theme already picked out for their nursery, you can give Christian baby gifts that accent any theme, such as picture frames, framed art prints, and bookends. A really creative idea is to gift higher power quote wall stickers for decorating the nursery walls.
Baby clothes always make a good gift, and you can find Christian themed baby apparel at most Christian retailers. When purchasing baby clothes, be sure to think ahead about sizes and seasons. Most babies, unless especially tiny, do not stay in newborn sizes for very long, so it’s a good idea to get some bigger sizes, such as 6, 9, or 12 months. That way the new mother will have new clothes for baby that last longer than just the first few weeks.
Another great baby gift is a CD of lullabies or soothing music to play in the nursery while feeding and rocking the new baby. Some great titles are Michael Card’s Sleep Sound in Jesus, Twila Paris’s Bedtime Prayers: Lullabies&Peaceful Worship, and Sleepytime Worship’s Lullaby Renditions of Michael W. Smith.
Giving a thoughtful gift to new parents shows that you value them and are happy to celebrate their new arrival. If the parents are people of faith, then a Christian baby gift is a wonderful choice.
