Perhaps 100 pounds in a trust account or something?

I remember someone at work got their god child a set of coins (for the year of the birth of the child). Theyre not cheap but they are supposed to rise in value. Not sure how much they cost though

ive just had my daughter christened and most people gave me cash or next vouchers, so ive opened a savings account and put all her money in. i think a savings account would be best but it would have to be in your name unless you can get the childs birth certificate as they needed that when i opened my daughters.

Think I will just do the account thing,vouchers will just get spent straight away

Cheers to all

i would go with either a £100 savings bond in a long term account or a £100 premiuim bond (which has to be in a holders name till child is 16
