21 Christening Gifts Australia: Gorgeous Ideas for Baby Girls & Boys


Choosing a baptism/christening gift can be tricky sometimes and time consuming. What is something you can give that is thoughtful, useful and meaningful?

I want to help you save time and find the perfect gift quickly and easily. Here is a selection of 21 gorgeous baptism gifts ideas ideal for a baby boy or girl and are chosen from online stores across Australia.

I’ve put together a list of gift ideas in Australia because I know sometimes you need a baptism gift in a hurry. Maybe the baptism date is just around the corner. By selecting a gift from an online store in Australia you will receive the gift a lot quicker.

Note: if you’re searching for a baptism or christening gift you’ve come to the right place. Christening and baptism are basically the same thing. For more info see here.

I’ve spent many, many hours researching the best gifts I could find that would make a really special baptism gift for a baby boy or baby girl and combined it with my knowledge and experience as a mum to a boy and 2 girls. From experience I’ve noticed things that boys and girls like and also things that are useful to a mum of a new baby.

I had 3 main criteria when searching for these gifts:

  1. Faith based: Baptism is all about starting a relationship with God. I believe all baptism gifts should be based around giving some sort of message of love and hope that will help sow seeds of faith in the baby or indirectly through the parents.
  2. Attractive: Something I would be happy for my children to wear or to use or display in their room.
  3. Useful: The best gifts are ones that can be used and are helpful to the recipient.

Overall, these gift ideas needed to be something I would be thrilled to receive as a mum to a baby boy or girl or something that I would choose as a gift myself for a baby boy or girl on their baptism.

The gifts below range from AU$11 to $60.

The first 14 gift ideas below are suitable for either a baby girl or boy. The next 7 gifts are gender specific so I’ve grouped them for baby boys and then for baby girls to make your search easier.
