Not a Godparent? Avoid those social conundrums by going in with a few friends and sending these biccies pre-Christening. Mum will love you as it saves on the baking meaning she can focus on what dress to wear to show off her post baby-bod. These vanilla-flavoured biscuits feature silver spoons, rattles and champagne personalised in icing with your own message. They can even keep cake and memories alive using the cute tin for storage.
Patrick Mavros creates beautiful silver masterpieces from his African home. Avoid the usual boredom of old school silver and give them something to cherish – made using the ancient lost wax technique means every piece is unique. Choose from buffalo, crocodile, cheetah or our personal fave, the trusty elephant. This will be a christening gift that actually stands the test of time.
How refreshing it will be for your god-daughter to grow up and think what a cool godparent she must have. Giving this Muru talisman necklace for wealth and prosperity so when they’re running a FTSE-100 you’ll thank your stars you shelled out a little for the christening gift. Made in sterling silver and gold vermeil it also comes with matching earrings. Maybe a nice addition from GodParent #2.
Built to last a lifetime, the Grosvenor Collection from Smythson combines classic style with timeless design. Their pink or blue baby books are crafted from printed calf leather, hardbound to stand the test of time with white wove paper for Mum’s and Dad’s to record baby’s arrival to first steps. Gilt-edged to sit perfectly alongside other coffee table books we’re certain it’ll stand out from other christening presents.
It’s not easy buying christening gifts. Long gone are the days of rusty pewter tankards and jewellery of a religious nature. But if you want to modernise the traditions, how about the oh-so-fancy monogrammed linen shop? Cuddly bathtime towels, a weeks worth of cute bibs or baby pillowcases are all given the extra special personalised touch. Monogrammed bed linen and still a toddler? How fancy.
