Does anyone have any ideas for a baby boys christening present? I am godmother and racking my brains to think of a cool, nice present but everything I've seen so far is a bit naff- want to spend around £50-£60 max. Thanks!

A friend recently bought this cool print for their godson

I thought it was great for a child but would also be enjoyed in years to come.

Those are pretty cool, they can do it even in silver and purple - for girls.

I bought a limited edition Roald Dahl/Quentin Blake print as a Christening gift.

justmuddlingalong: really great idea - have bought a hard back copy as a gift for a Christening this Easter Sunday! Thank you!

I bought this book for part of a Christening gift, the words are fab and gave me a bit of a wobbly bottom lip when I read it.

www.littledelivery.com has gorgeous personalised christening gifts..eg a personalised christening picture. Or they do nice Peter Rabbit tableware.

Baby boy isn't going to remember it so why not get something for the guests. I went to a baptism recently where the parents had bought a massive cake with the babies picture on it. Very cute.

Have just bought a wooden Noah's ark & have also seen a child's garden bench...or might go for a book. Thanks for the ideas everyone, really helpful!!

What about the full collection of Thomas the Tank Engine books .


WWW.ROYALMINT.COM do some nice christening sets that show the money that was in cirrculation the year they were born , my son got one off my parents for his christening and it is a really nice set.

Remembered whilst browsing books this afternoon that the mum is a fan of a particular children's classic, so have gone for a book afterall. Thanks ladies .

MrsB - me too

just that ds has a particular fascination with mickey mouse at the moment! i'm sick of it!

MrsBadger Mon 30-Apr-07 17:46:54

(though I would favour classics over Disney myself)

mylittlestar Mon 30-Apr-07 17:23:00

I'd say books too.

Ds got about 6 money boxes!

But a couple of people bought him books, he got a full set of disney story books (great present), a 'my first bible', some lovely wodden presents e.g. a wooden jigsaw set which had his name engraved in the box. You can order them online too...

he also got a beautiful set which was a knife, fork, spoon, cup, bowl and plate from 'Kaloo' - which we use every day

I got my nephew a good Oxford dictionary as a Christening Gift. Think it was about £80, but that was a couple of years ago, but you could get a good one for less than that.

MrsBadger Mon 30-Apr-07 13:58:46

I still say books

Am bumping this for further ideas, as I need to get a Christening gift for next weekend, and am wanting to spend up to £30.

amidaiwish Mon 30-Apr-07 08:59:26

yes, that's nice - a cheaper one here

FundaMental Mon 30-Apr-07 08:58:13

This is the Noahs Ark I bought for DD


bit pricey but nice and big

Tess100 Mon 30-Apr-07 08:55:33

Thanks for the ideas, will do a bit more research,like the idea of books for when he's a bit older! Wanted to avoid the useless ornamental object at all costs...Also like the idea of a wooden toy that at least won't break!

Found some here , they do them in loads of places though

My last post, honestly

Eddas Sat 28-Apr-07 09:21:17

Actually premium bonds are good too as amidawish said but you have to buy a minimum of £100 so a bit more than your budget

Eddas Sat 28-Apr-07 09:20:20

My friends MIl got her dd2 a book which was made up with photos of dd2 since birth with her family etc. You can add in narrative etc. I thought it was lovely. Boots do them takes 2 weeks and doesn't cost too much definately within your budget link here

I also liek the photo cubes where you can add a picture. Will try to find what i mean

a personalised, hand painted child's wooden chair (DD2 got one from her godmother, it's lovely)
premium bonds?
