  28. Christening bonnet/handkercheif. Uses it during Christening and turns into a handkercheif for his/her wedding day. (Son gives to his bride). Very memorable throughout life and a great way to keep it going through generations.

  29. For occasions like this, the parents might get gifts that they already have. A good way to make sure someone likes a gift is by letting THEM pick!

  32. How about a christening guest book? I take your favourite photos of baby, fully edit them, and design a personalized guest book that everyone at the christening can then sign and add their blessings. Lovely to keep for the parents, and could also be part of ‘baby’s’ 18th present!

  43. Hello UK – I hope you like my collection of guardian angel pendants.

    All guardian angels have the option of a personalised engraving. A significant date, for instance, might adorn the reverse side, and the name of a beloved may embellish the angle’s wing.

    Hope to hear from you soon….

  45. For my granddaughters christening I had an Irish baby blessing made into a Pages from the Heart gift book mine looks similar to the fourth one down on this page

    Except the picture is actually a picture of my new granddaughter and the words are different mine reads
    May you always have
    A sunbeam to warm you
    Good luck to charm you
    And a sheltering angel
    So nothing can harm you
    Laughter to cheer you
    Faithful friends near you
    And whenever you pray
    Heaven to hear you.
    Mine is also decorated with a few pink and white roses its very beautiful .I have bought several different gift books from this lady they are always beautiful and unique and she is very obliging in what she will alter or add to make the gift special for its recipient

  46. Being a friend its hard to choose traditional gifts as the family will have bought all of these kind of things. For a boy, maybe a silver money clip engraved with their name. Then you can give some money as well.
    For a girl, some silver earrings they can wear when they get older.
    Its keeping in the silver theme but not getting in the way of family ideas.
