Christian religious ceremonies involving christening or baptizing a baby date back centuries. More recently, some churches have moved toward Baby Dedications.

In all of these ceremonies, a special outfit is often worn baby the infant. Most often called "christening gowns," these outfits are sometimes handed down from one generation to the next. In other cases, the parents may choose their own outfit and then preserve and store it away in the hopes of starting their own family tradition.

In this article, we'll take a look at some timeless christening clothes for baby girls and boys that could easily be handed down to the next generation in your family, as well as preserving those gowns and how to refresh gowns that may have been handed down to you, but could use a little tender loving care.
