  • Baptism/Christening gifts

    I'm curious to know what people think are good and/or suitable baptism gifts these days?
    Do you like to go traditional, or modern and unique?

    Both presents from godparents, and presents from guests.

    Let me know! I'm at a loss and am in both situations soon

    I've only been to a few and I've usually bought a nice book for the child, or a special teddy. I know one friend's child got given so many money boxes, so I usually avoid that.

      We purchased my god daughter a beautiful Tiffanys necklace for her Christening. I wanted to get something that could be kept for years and would not necessarily 'date' as time went on.

        We usually give:
        -Silver/ metal money box
        -Keepsake cutlery
        -pewter/metal cup or egg cup
        -silver brush and comb set
        -silver photo frame
        -metal certificate holder
        -metal first tooth/curl box

        Depends on who they are and how close we are to them to what we give.

                  Don't buy- anything pewter (eg money boxes, photo frames, certificate holders, jewelery boxes, tooth/curl boxes), cutesy ceramic bowl/cup/spoons, Peter Rabbit etc stuff unless it's practical like clothing.

                  I got soooooooooo much of all that stuff, and you just can't keep it all, so it just goes to waste.

                    Thanks to all that have replied so far! Any further input will be appreciated also if anyone else wants to give advice.
