A baby’s christening is an important time for parents, family and friends, as well as for the infant of course. All those people involved want to mark this special occasion in some way, and there’s a considerable number of christening toys and presents available to do just that. Anything silver is very popular with items like mugs, cutlery sets, money boxes, trinkets and keepsake boxes in which to keep treasured photographs or other memories of the early years.
Christening toys are well-liked too, with items like a Peter Rabbit soft toy complete with a special baby’s first mug or a maybe even a complete set of Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit story books in a special presentation box. Whilst not strictly christening toys, money boxes in the shape of fire engines, dinosaurs, pirate ships or even rocking horses are keepsakes that will last a number of years as a reminder of that special day.
In a break with tradition, grandparents may like to mark the event by giving the baby a larger christening toy present of something like a rocking horse that will be a long lasting plaything that can be used by a large number of children over many years. If that’s too expensive, what about a framed print of baby or even a pair of bookends with your baby's name on them? The choice of christening toys and presents is almost endless, and terrific selections can be found in traditional shops as well as online stores.
