Silver gifts are the perfect sort of gift to buy for a christening. Regardless of whether you’re a godparent, family member, or friend of the family; you can’t go wrong with a silver christening gift. They can be a little pricey, but they are something you know will be treasured forever. Here are 10 of the best silver christening gifts to consider:
A Cutlery Set
Cutlery sets are a very popular christening gift and they have been for years. If you’re considering this gift, you should probably check to see if anybody else is thinking of buying one too as they are so popular!
The great thing about a silver bracelet is that they can be worn, whereas many other gifts go unused. You could have the bracelet engraved with the baby’s name, a nice phrase, or buy a bracelet with a pattern on. Many are adjustable so they can wear it for years and then keep it. This is one of the most perfect goddaughter gifts you can buy if you are a godparent.
Necklaces can be worn forever, regardless of age (although you will have to wait until a baby has grown into a small child before they can put it on). It’s a worthwhile christening gift because it can be worn and used for a long time and then passed down!
A Tooth Box
Many parents like to keep their child’s first lost tooth, or even multiple teeth! A silver tooth box will keep these teeth safe in style.
A Jewellery Box
A jewellery box is a fantastic christening gift for a baby or an adult who has decided to get christened. They can place all of their most treasured pieces inside.
A Photo Frame
Photo frames mark the most precious memories of our lives, so it can be a thoughtful gift for a christening. You could place a picture inside ready or leave the parents to do it for the child. A nice non-silver alternative to a photo frame is a hand and footprint kit, where a baby’s hands and feet can be set into a mould forever!
Reading is a wonderful hobby to get into, and what better way to encourage it than to buy a silver bookmark? Another gift that can be kept for a lifetime!
A Christening Certificate Holder
The christening certificate is often kept by parents to remember the special day. However, over time it can become discolored and ripped. To protect it, consider buying a certificate holder! A holder will keep it in amazing condition for much longer.
A Money Box
What better way to encourage sensibility with money early on than to buy a money box? You could even start them off with a little bit of change if you like. Having it engraved will make it extra special!
A silver eggcup is a cute, compact gift to give at a Christening. Many people like to give something like this with silver cutlery, but it isn’t essential!
Have a wonderful time at the christening and happy shopping!
