4 Unique Christening Favours For Your Baby's Baptism

The popularity of christening favours is really growing, with many families embracing the tradition of a special memento for guests to take home.

Need help thinking of a unique small gift for guests at your baby’s christening? We have collated a list of our favourite baptism favours for your baby’s baptism or naming day event.

Magic Beans

Naturally, our favourite christening favour idea is our very own magic beans. Personalise them with your child’s name and plant them in a little soil, coir or stones about a week before the event.

They will certainly be a unique bonbonniere to present to your guests as the plants bloom and grow at home over the months after the event.


The lighting of a candle is often a significant moment during a naming ceremony or christening. You can remind your guests of this special time by giving them a votive or tea light candle in a personalised holder as their keepsake.

Bookmarks and keyrings

Pewter bookmarks in the shape of an angel or a cross are popular christening favours and make a delightful way to keep your place in your Bible, Torah or reading book.

Keyrings with teddy bears, booties, or even baby animals are also becoming popular favours for a naming ceremony. Many families choose a theme with a special meaning for them and use that to inspire their food, decorations and take home gifts.

Edible treats

Just because the guest of honour is too young for sweets, it doesn’t mean the rest of the congregation needs to miss out!

Gather some chocolates, lollies, patty cakes or biscuits and package them up to make charming christening favours. Add a personalised sticker or ribbon to give your baptism favour an especially celebratory touch.

Final Thoughts

It’s easy to become caught up in commercialism and other people’s expectations when holding major life events like christenings.

Remember the importance of the gathering and keep that as your focus when planning. Ensure you choose favours, invitations, decorations and other finishing touches that honour the significance of this special occasion - and you will be sure to have a truly memorable event!
