We are going to be godparents and this will be our first godchild (12 mo boy).
When our own children were christened, people generally bought them toys (which was fine by us). I think that our friends are a bit more traditional and would prefer something a bit more meaningful! I am not sure what to get, can anyone tell me what they liked when their DC were christened? Just to add that he has an older sister so they already have little bits and pieces like bible story books etc so I didn't want to duplicate for younger DC.
A wooden height chart A child's chair with his name on Silverware (spoons etc but also things like a corkscrew for later!) A lovely toy box Classic books like complete Winnie the Pooh Premium bonds And one lovely friend made his christening cake if you are at all artistic!
My DS's godfather gave him this book which now he is 2yo we do look at together.
He also received a children's Bible, silver key ring and a "Grace dice".
The latter is a wooden dice with a different simple prayer to say before meals. The idea being that the child rolls it to choose which prayer gets said before meals. I plan on starting to use it when DS is a bit older when we have our family Sunday meal.
