Hi

Me and my hubby have been asked to be godparents to our best mates little girl in July - anyone have any ideas of a nice gift or anyone have anything they think may be suitable??

Ignore the price I have put - this was just random - let me know if you have anything or ideas..

I like this idea to but havent even done that for my boy yet - its on my things to do list :oops:

Someone bought my little boy a bear factory bear for him at his christening and made its birth certificate with the same name and date of birth and that. which i thought was a lovely idea.

bank account is a good idea -

My son got loads of lovely bits - but now he is 10 he has no interest in them and they are in boxes - don't even suppose he will want them when he is older - Bunnykins & Thomas stuff mostly.

What about one of those really nice rockers - M&P and ELC do them - that way he can use it for ages rather than just look at something ?

My gran got my little girl a silver bangle with her name engraved on it!! so nice i almost cried when she lost it the other day!! Most people gave her money to put in her bank account and one person also got her the charmelia cham braclet its to big for her just now but her god mother is getting her the fairy godmother charm to put on it and iam getting her charms like the birthday one for her birthday and the mikey mouse one to remember her first holiday!!xx

I know what you mean about leaving stuff in boxes...more for the mums I guess than the babies!! She has the lotty ladybird rocker I think, will check but thats a good idea too....thanks guys for your help

Another idea! someone bought our Daughter some premium bonds ( i know you dont here of these much nowadays but she got a cheque for £60 recently from them ) i had even forgotten she had them !!:w00t:
Just a suggestion instead of something that she is either going to outgrow quickly or is going to sit gathering dust :thumbsup:

Another good idea!!! I have £100 premium bonds I was bought and I have won £200 in all so not bad!!

I just found this one HUKD and bought it - hoping she like its and it gives me xmas and birthday gifts for a few years too, by the time she can play with it she should have all the bits :)

I just had my daughter christened in May and speaking as a mum I would say you can't go wrong with silver. A bangle or necklace maybe with her name of initial on or her birthstone.

The thing is the other ideas are really on the practical side and what you have to bear in mind is that you are the godparents here. You need to get something special that she can keep forever and be shown ,'look this is from your godparents when you were christened'. So if you want to do something practictical like the bank account,do it, but I would get a keepsake gift too to make it extra special.

I have one of those sets with a silver plated pink brush and comb inside. We got 2 for my lo's christening so don't really need them both. It's as new, never been used and comes in a pink box with pink satin inlay. The brush has a little princess engraved on it and the lid of the box has a silver plated plaque on it saying, 'childhood memories'. I would ask £5 for it. Second class postage would be £1.95.

It's like this and comes with the box as well
