The comfort and blessings that are the foundation of the Christian faith are free for anyone who accepts Jesus Christ as their Savior. For these reasons, some prefer that their baby’s dedication ceremony be gift free to keep the focus on the spiritual aspects of the occasion. There may be a request on the invitation that guests bring no gifts with them. The love and best wishes that they share are enough. In this case, the family's wishes should be respected. However, it’s not unusual for a gift to be given in the form of an inspirational poem that a creative family member wrote to commemorate the baby's dedication service. The poem may be read during the ceremony, saved in baby’s memory box or framed and displayed on the wall as special memento of the day reminding us that the gift of love is perhaps the most precious Christian baby dedication gift of all.
