The book is very colorful and contains simplified versions of major biblical stories in the bible.

Sweet Rocking Horse Crib Medal for Baby
Sometimes, there are gifts that we get merely as a lovely keepsake. This adorable crib medal is a baptism gift for baby girls and boys.

It is a beautiful decoration to add to the nursery with a simple prayer engraved on the medal saying, 'Dear God, protect me as I sleep and play through the night and every day.' The medal itself isn't too heavy, but you need to keep it secured on the crib and not over your baby or even try and attach it to a crib mobile. Anyway, this cute baby baptism gift for baby comes in two different glitter colors and ribbon depending on the baby's gender. We've included the links to both rocking horse crib medals for boys and girls.

What if I am not a religious person, how can I pick an appropriate baby christening gift?
If you're not comfortable choosing gifts with crucifixes and rosaries, then you can get baby clothes that are white in color or any gift that is angel-inspired. Remember that the gift is meant to welcome a new member of the church, so as much as possible, try to stick to a theme of buying gifts in the colors of white or inspired by angels and lambs.
The best baby christening gifts are items that are meant to commemorate a time where the child is welcomed into the Christian world and choosing an appropriate gift for the christening of a baby is all about getting a gift that will surely remember the time the child was baptized.
