Christening gifts are a lovely tradition, in which you present the baby with a lasting memento of their special day. Usually, christening gifts are made of silver, as it is something that is precious and lasting, without being too expensive for friends and relatives to afford. Embroidered gifts, such as bibs and blankets, are also popular.
Silver christening gifts include photo frames of the baby and their family, along with silver money boxes to start the little one off on the right path to savings and financial security. Other silver gifts include bracelets and necklaces for the girls and miniature footballs and football boots for the boys. Traditionally, silver christening gifts are engraved with the date and venue of the christening and the name of the baby.
