    What to know about the practice of christening

    Living in a predominantly Catholic country, we naturally look forward to having our babies receive the sacrament of baptism. It is the first of the seven sacraments, aiming to make us one with Christ and a member of the Church. That’s why this religious rite is also called christening.

    Over the years in Christendom, secular practices were incorporated into the celebration of baptism. These include having godparents, who assume an obligation to “serve as proxies for parents if the parents either are unable or neglect to provide for the religious training of the child,” and having the godparents give presents to the child.

    (Read here on Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle's reminder in choosing godparents.)

    The most traditional christening gift ideas for godparents to give are said to be those made of silver: cutlery, silver spoons, rattles, tankards, napkin rings, coins, and egg cups. Thus, this saying: “Born with a silver spoon in the mouth.” It means the wealth to which the child was born into.


    Fast-forward to present-time Philippines, the best gift for christening baby boy, for instance, comes in a wide variety of choices. Some members of Smart Parenting's online community, Smart Parenting Village, shared their go-to and, to some of them, wish list, items. These include:

    • Cash
    • Baby essentials
    • Baby memory/milestone book/journal
    • Pre-need items
    • Novel gift ideas
