What about those little silver clocks in the shape of something like a motorbike/train?

I bought my nephew a few shares in a football club!

Have also bought good bottles of whiskey/port that can be laid down, for various people (assuming they don't get drunk by the dads first!)

what about a crate of retsina to lay down til he's 21

How about something for when he is grown up such as a beer tankard, hip flask or crystal glasses.
Or a good quality / classic book. Such as Thomas the Tank Engine or the AA Milne books.
Or a picture for their bedroom or if you can do it a friend of our did a beutiful cross stich and got them framed and ds & dd had them for their christenings.

Premium bonds? Dull but full of potential.

I thihk a first edition book is a lovely idea. I sent a child a really lovely antique silver spoon which had their initial at the top- since they hadn't been born with one in mouth.

If you could bear to spend £100, you could buy premium bonds? (Give the other £50 to him for Christmas? - I think £100 is the minimum)
