Q:

What is an appropriate amount of money give as a christening gift?

A:

The standard amount of money to give as a generous gift for a baby's christening is $50 USD, as of 2014. Monetary gifts in the form of a savings bond or investment certificate are just as appropriate as cash for modern baptisms. Smaller and non-monetary gifts are also acceptable.

Traditional gifts for a baby's christening include religious items, such as a Bible, religious storybooks and keepsake items, such as inspirational figurines or photo frames. Practical gifts, such as blankets and silverware, are appropriate, as are family heirloom items to pass down to the child. Personal, handcrafted items, such as clothing and stuffed animals, are also appropriate for christening ceremony gifts.
