What to write in a christening card

A christening is the first big event in a child’s life – but since they’re very unlikely to appreciate beautifully-penned heartfelt sentiments while they’re still in a baby onesie, it can be hard to know what to write in the christening card. Well, to make it nice and simple, we’ve pulled together a list of christening messages perfect to put in the card. Whether you’re a proud godparent, family, or friend, read on and pick your favourite to write in the card. And if you’re looking for the perfect card, we’ve got that covered too – check out our full range of cute christening cards.
