My godson's christening is in a few weeks and I am drawing a complete blank on present ideas! He has quite cool initials so was thinking of engraving something - just don't know what! (Don't want to get a tankard as that's what his parents got for my DS).

What are the best presents you've had / given / heard about?

We didn't have dd or ds Christened but we had dedication services fr them both and chose godparents for them. My ds's godparents did something that blew us away. They have set up a trust account thing and are paying a bit of money into it every month. He will be given a lovely nest egg when he's 18 or so. We were really touched but the thoughtfulness of that.

wow - that is lovely Cadbury. Were you not at all embarassed by that? Or am I just being a bit 'British'? It's just that his parents are pretty comfortable financially and I'm concerned they may think it's too much or something - or feel bad for not having done the same for my DS who is their godson

lockets - am I being stupid? Is Links a shop? (btw - how are you? how are the BH today? )

We were given a silver welcoming cup from dd's Scottish godparents - it's got a proper name but I've mislaid it in my preggie brain. It's to toast the baby's arrival. We want to start a tradition now of drinking from it with dd every birthday - obviously it will be milk to start with...

'Quaich' - is the gaelic name WM - his father is half Scottish - half Irish so that could be very appropriate. Also his mom is Sri Lankan origin and they have a tradition of blessing a new house with boiling a milk based drink that everyone drinks from so could be a good combination of their two traditions. Just found some on a website- they are gorgeous.

Oh good - I was some help - can you remind me how to pronounce 'quaich' Rudy? thanks

I gave mine a pocket watch - which I will actually get round to getting engraved one of these days!!!

No idea WM!!! Just got it off a website and my gaelic is non-existent. It describes it as cup of friendship for welcoming visitors which I think is lovely. I've never even heard of them before.
