For centuries human beings have been getting together to celebrate holidays during certain times of the year and to mark the passage of time. Sometimes the holidays are connected with religious holidays and sometimes they are celebrated just to mark the time of year. Thanksgiving, for example, was done to mark the end of summer and the coming winter and to give thanks for the bountiful harvest. Traditionally, Christmas is a holiday associated with Christians and has deep religious meaning. Others celebrate Christmas as a time to remember the passing year and to get together with family. New Years is a celebration of the end of another year and is a time to remember, make resolutions for a new and better year and to look forward to the new year.
For each of these holidays gifts and decorations are used. In the case of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, people are often invited over to someone else’s home. It is tradition to bring gifts to the hosts of holiday parties for any of the holidays celebrated near the end of the year. Bringing gifts to the host who has prepared a Thanksgiving meal is considered polite. Bringing a small gift to someone hosting a New Years party is also considered polite.
Unique Christening Gifts
Christmas is a tradition going back a very long time. In ancient times small gifts were exchanged and candles were placed on trees to celebrate the winter months and the coming happy new year. These days people decorate their homes with lights, wreathes and elaborate Christmas trees draped with lights. Beneath those trees it is tradition to place gifts in boxes wrapped in elaborate and colorful wrapping paper.
Buy for an unsual or unique Christening gift idea? Take a look at our range of unique Christening gifts – all chosen to be thoughtful and memorable Christening presents. Traditionally Christening gifts are often silver, but it’s becoming much more common to give a more unusal Christening gift…they don’t have to be silver!
Our handmade, wooden Noah’s Ark set will charm any parent and delight any child and unlike most Christening gifts it can be used as a room decoration, adding character to any nursery. Another unique gift for a boy or girls christening is a ‘memory box’ – a special box in which they can store photos, letters, trinkets and other items important to them as they grow up.
Wooden toys often make lovely Christening gifts, they hark back to traditional toys, have a tactile nature and babies and children love that they aren’t plastic. You can easily personalise a wooden toy with a hand-made tag and some suitably coloured ribbon. Parents really appreciate the individuality and that makes it a really unique Christening gift…and it’s easy for the parents to keep the tag.
