    I've recently been asked to be Godmother to two gorgeous little boys from different families lol! And am stuck for christening presents, have you any ideas or some that people gave to your lo's?

    I was thinking of a special edition children's book, but can't seem to find one in my price range? (£50-£60) I also found some quentin Blake prints which were great but also way out of my price range?

    Any suggestions gratefully received :flower: thanks x

    I was at a Christening a couple of weekends ago, I too was godmother. I bought a christening plate and had it personalised.

    Another present that my goddaughter got was an encyclopedia of her name....everyone thought it was wonderful.Not sure where the women got it but i would imagine you would find it online....

    The enclopedia was personalised and took each letter of her name and had lots of pictures and explanations of the things beginning with that letter IFYKWIM? Im not sure i explained it very well but it was a gorgeous, thoughtful gift! xx

    Aww thank you very much :blush:

    I took it, along with a few others to make my hubby a photo collage for Fathers Day. I weakened and gave it to him as soon as it arrived though :haha:

    That's a lovely idea! I stole an idea off another thread on here, and took three photos of my LO with her holding a big D in two of them and a A in one of them, i'm going to put them in a photo frame for 3 photos so it spells DAD. I wanted to give him something else too though!

    I may need to look for a dummy like that :haha:
