Christening Gifts - Traditionally, if you would like your child to be brought up as a Christian, then a christening is the first step. However, these days, faith is not always the only motivation. A christening is also a great way to get the whole family together to celebrate your new arrival. Either way, it is an important milestone in family life and one to remember. There will be lots of gorgeous photos of the little one in a special christening gown or outfit and what better way to preserve them than in a beautiful photo album? Of course, godparents have a central part in the ceremony, and they will want to offer a gift that their godchild will treasure. Whilst a white leather Bible or a child’s edition of Bible stories is a traditional favourite, there are many more options these days. How about a cuddly teddy bear with baby’s name and the date of the Christening embroidered on his T-shirt? Another option is a beautiful sterling silver, cross necklace in a chrome gift box, engraved with a personal message. Or how about a Christening signing plate your guests can leave their little messages on, written on the day with a special marker pen. Once baked in the oven at home, they become a permanent reminder of the day. Equally original as a gift would be one of our framed pictures; you can even have one personalised with baby’s name and birth details.
After the ceremony, there will be many mementoes to preserve: cards, the gown, godparents’ gifts, the Bible, photos. We have a super collection of Christening keepsake boxes in which to treasure your memories. And don’t forget a Guest Book; in years to come your child will be fascinated to read all the names of the people who attended their first public appearance.
