What do you gift at a christening?

Whether you’re a godparent, a cousin or grandparent of the child in question – anyone invited to a christening wants to bring something special for the little one. Something for them to cherish for years to come, preferably with a personal touch. A great solution for this are personalized christening gifts. They’ll not only focus solely on the child themselves, but also be a lovely reminder of their christening day as they grow older.
