A Guide to the 10 best Christening Gifts

Buying a gift for a Christening is always a tricky purchase, should it be something to keep, something for the baby to play with now, should it be a traditional or a contemporary gift ..and what about when the child to be christened is not a baby anymore?

Personally I think something to keep as a memento is great. Something with a contemporary twist, but nevertheless long lasting.

At The Little Lavender Tree we offer a great choice of traditional keepsakes, which, in some cases, can also be personalised.

Here is a list of what we personally think are the best 10 Christening gifts:

Christening gift idea#1: A beautiful and contemporary box, perfect as a Christening hamper.

It includes:

– a white cotton lace shawl, hand knitted exclusively for us by British manufacturer Collins Knitwear. 90cmx90cm

– a matching white cotton lace beanie hat By Collins Knitwear

– a silver plated tooth fairy keepsake with a cute tooth fairy wand on the lid by Bam Bam, for those precious little memories. It comes packaged in a lovely white presentation box.
– a luxury magnetic box, that can be used as a perfect keepsake of all baby’s memories. Size 220x110x280mm

Christening gift idea#2: We adore these gift boxes sets by Bam Bam also available in blue and pink. The gift set include a large duck rattle toy, baby socks, teether toy and the softest comforter.

Christening gift #3: A personalised Carousel Moneybox, is one of our most popular gifts. The horses do move up and down when the carousel is turned around and the engraving suits a name and date of birth or Christening date. Priced £44.99, can also be delivered Next Day, for the last minute purchase!


Christening idea #4: A classic keepsake, we love this hand-carved Nativity set. It comes beautifully presented in a hand-painted wooden box with the words “Nativity Set” engraved on the front. Made of twelve pieces all hand-carved and hand-painted with a shabby-chic finish in soft pastel colours.

Christening idea#6: How about a personalised name frame, that will look really cute in any nursery. They can be personalised with the child’s name, date of birth of Christening date. We have lots of different designs available. all handmade in different textures and materials. https://www.thelittlelavendertree.co.uk/product-category/gifts/name-frames/

Christening idea #7: If you want to treat the child with a toy that they can play with now, we are great fans of traditional toys that can stimulate creative play for hours. We absolutely love these activity sets by Swedish brand Oskar & Ellen, that can entertain for hours and are so easy to carry aroundas they come in a lovely and practical bag. https://www.thelittlelavendertree.co.uk/product-category/playtime/activity-toys/

Christening idea #8: A traditional keepsake, this silver sterling personalised expanding bracelet, is absolutely adorable and can be kept for years to come as a lovely memento of the day.

Christening idea #9: Another Christening idea that is so popular with our customers. We absolutely love these Flatout bears. Beautifully soft, cuddly and flat, the FLATOUTbear is made of 100% pure Australian sheepskin shaped like a teddy bear. They are just gorgeous. They’re natural, plush and luxurious.

Christening idea#10: And finally we are in love with these beautiful musical ducks carousel by gift company Bam Bam. The 3 white & silver ducks turn on top as the box plays. Just turn the base to listen to soothing music.
