A baptism can be one of the most important parts of a child’s life, and no matter your denomination of Christianity, if your little girl, or one that you know is being baptised, you’ll undoubtedly want to invest in a gift to mark the occasion; and be cherished for the young ladies’ lifetime. Jewellery can be a fantastic way to celebrate the event and, in this article, we’ll be taking a look at some of the best baptism gifts for girls.
White Gold Bracelets
One of the most precious metals that you can buy is white gold and it’s ideal to commemorate a baptism as it symbolises purity, spirituality and beauty. Stunning baptismal bracelets can be affordable, but as this is a once-in-a-lifetime event, it can be important to spend to make sure that you get the ideal gift for the occasion. White gold is certainly an excellent choice and due to its easily-maintained nature, it can last for decades with minimal fuss. White gold also fluctuates with the price of gold, so you might end up buying a piece of jewellery that actually increases in value as the little girl gets older.
Is there anything quite as eye-catching as a silver necklace? Not only do they shimmer with movement, they are incredibly easy to clean and if 925 Sterling is used, they can even be antibacterial, too. These types of necklaces can be plain, or embellished to suit your tastes (or that of your recipient if they are old enough to make their own decisions). Another great thing about silver is that it’s very affordable, so you could really go all out and find a stunning piece without having to take out a loan. Silver is also very easy for jewellers to cast and shape, so you’ll likely get plenty of unique styles and appearances to choose from as well – making your options almost endless with silver jewellery gifts.
Perhaps the most commonly associated precious metal for baptisms, gold can be an excellent choice although traditionally it is more common for boys as opposed to girls. If you do opt for gold, however, thinner is always better as far as the links are concerned, simply to create a more feminine feel to the piece of jewellery. Gold often goes well with birthstones, and if you really want to buy a unique piece, you could always have it customised with a birthstone relating to the month that the little girl was born and this will likely lead to it becoming a favourite gift well into the future. Buying a stunning, stylish baptism gift for a girl doesn’t have to be difficult and with jewellery, you really won’t go wrong. Many people opt for a cash gift but in reality, cash gets spent and the thought will soon be forgotten. With a carefully selected piece of jewellery, you could be buying a gift to last a lifetime and one that will be cherished for years. If you’re clever, you might even opt for a charm bracelet, so that as the girl gets older, she can add the charms and designs that she likes, making the entire piece.
