greetings card inspiration Published Mar 22, 2024

Christenings and Baptisms are a wonderful occasion that brings together friends and family to celebrate and officially welcome a baby to their life, their name and the church.

These celebrations are such a special occasion that you want to mark the event with an appropriate gift and greetings card, right?

This is where we come in. We have gathered together some of the most beautiful Christening and Baptism messages, quotes and sayings for you to write inside their card. We've also answered some FAQs about Christening and Baptism card etiquette to help you on your way. 

If you haven't yet found the perfect card, we highly recommend you take a little trip over to our collection of laser cut personalised Christening and Baptism cards. View them here


Do I address the card to the child or the parents?

Either is absolutely fine. Or you could write to both the child and their parents. Of course, the child isn't going to read the Christening card yet, so it makes sense to address the parents. However, the parents may well keep the card for the child to read when they are older. It really is a personal preference. We've included examples of both below. 

How do I structure a Christening message?

Start with a greeting, such as "Dear (Name)", "To my Godson, (Name)", "To (parents' names) and (baby's name) on your special day".  

Add the content. See below for ideas. We like to start with a quote and follow up with a nice, personal message. 

Close your message and sign off with your name, e.g. "With my/our love and best wishes, (name/s)"

Christening Messages from grandparents

To our wonderful grandson/daughter on your Christening/Baptism

We are so blessed to have you as our grandchild, and are so happy to share this special day with you. 

Grandson/daughter, we are so proud to celebrate with you today, and are so excited to create happy memories with you as you grow up. Happy Christening Day! 

Finishing Touches

If you're looking to add a little extra to your card, why not try these:

Use your fanciest pen and neatest handwriting. If that's not an option, we offer an insert printing service for no extra charge. Simply let us know when you place your order and we'll hook you up. 

Commission a local calligrapher to write the message for you. We've seen some pretty special Christening cards with commissioned calligraphy writing inside. It really does take the whole thing up a level. 

Add a photograph. On my wedding day, a friend took a sneaky polaroid photograph of myself and my husband as we came out of the church, and then popped it inside their card to us. It was such a thoughtful gesture and one I will treasure forever.
