Heirloom Christening Gifts

Historically, according to Christening Silver, christening gifts were intended as symbolic tokens of financial support for the child on his way through daily life, given as the child begins his spiritual journey. For that reason, they are often made of silver and other precious metals. The gifts most likely to become heirlooms are those that will last for a long time, such as those made from precious metals, or ones that already have an established value, such as antiques.

Silver Gifts

Buying a silver christening gift has the advantage of creating an heirloom that will pass down through generations. Silver napkin rings, child-size cutlery sets of knife, fork and spoon, egg cups are all popular unisex presents. In addition, girls are often given a silver bracelet, while boys may be given a drinking cup or tankard. More modern interpretations include rattles and money boxes.

First Edition Books

A small, leather-bound Bible is frequently given as a gift. However, a gift that may equally become an heirloom is a first edition of a children's book. For example, Mark Twain's "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," is suitable for a boy, while "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott is a perennial favourite with girls. Other appropriate choices are editions of Beatrix Potter stories, which have the benefit of appealing to younger children. There are many specialist online booksellers that will advise you on the market value of various classic children's books and search for the one you want if they don't have a copy.

Rocking Horse

A rocking horse has a special place in most children's memory. Rocking horses are often handed down from generation to generation. Hand-crafted horses are widely available and makers will usually ship products across the world. In addition, there are companies that sell antique rocking horses, mostly from the Victorian period.
