Ideas for Christening gift?

My Sister is having my Nephew christened mid November, but I am clueless to what gift to get.

She is having 3 godfathers and 3 Godmothers...which I thought was strange, so I am assuming they will buy the statutory - bible, silver spoon fork knife, etc. When he was born I got my sister a Tiffany solid silver picture frame, but have no idea for a great original gift for the christening. Any ideas really appreciated. Thanks

    It depends whether you want a traditional present or a more original Christening gift ... it also depends on your budget.

    When my nephew was Christened I got him a sterling silver chip fork because I knew he would be given lots of traditional gifts. My brother is pretty well off, so a slightly quirky present "for the boy that will do everything in style' seemed appropriate.

    If you prefer to go traditional, a stylish boy's gift is a silver tankard or cup.

    Also, think about a St Christopher medallion for protection throughout life ... I've put a link to christeningsilver.com below ... they've some good stuff

    Start a baby book for her

    A piece of jewellery to give to the baby when he turns 18 that is engraved

    A figurine that has been engraved (I knew a family that had a stone turtle engraved with the baby's name and birth date which i thought was quite cute)

    Or open a bank account for the baby with a small some of money to hand over to them when they are off to uni or 18.

    Difficult: first thoughts the complete works of Douglas Adams, that may in time develop the barking mad sense of humor that I find so uplifting. Or maybe Oscar Wilde the greatest wit of all time.

    Jocking aside a crucifix. He is being baptized, maybe he will not follow the faith but he may find comfort in that symbol when times are bad.

    But most importantly be there for him.

    even though it is not classic for human beings to purchase their infant a contemporary i wanted to offer my daughter some thing. My mum gave her a bible, her god mom and dad gave her a christening bracelet and her aunties gave her a St Christopher's. i offered her a sterling silver bookmark, with a ballet shoes pendant. theory could be slightly unusual and that i unquestionably desire that she'll be keen on analyzing whilst she gets older. i offered it on line, yet i do no longer undergo in innovations the place from, i understand that I merely googled sterling bookmarks although.
