Q:

How much money should you give at a christening?

A:

The amount of money to give for a christening depends on many things, but the usual amount is between $100 and $150. A guest's financial situation and relationship with the baby and the parents can influence the decision on how much to give.

A christening is an important passage for the baby and the parents. According to TheNest.com, being invited to this ceremony is an honor. If a guest is not able to offer money, other options are available. Gifts such as handmade items, jewelry, silver rattles, photo frames and memory books are all acceptable. Whether money or a gift is chosen is not as important as witnessing the ceremony of this sacred sacrament and showing support to the parents.
