what about one of them silver scroll things that you keep the certificate in? Or maybe a photo album of the day :)

Nothing silver, always get too much and always sits in the attic

Far better, pay for some photos or a photo session for her. Ideal age. Sort of thing amny are reluctant to pay for

try the wesite [url]www.notonthehighstreet.com[/url] they have beautiful christening bracelets where you can add the childs initial. they are by a designer called ann hauk and are influenced by balinese jewellery are made of silver and are gorgeous.

our family traditionally always buy the little ones a single silver bangle. there are so many different designs you can choose from. mine stayed on my wrist until i was almoat 30 and the silver finally broke!

three years of age is the perfect time to wear one. they love it because it's pretty :)

A bit different, but I bought a wheelybug for my godson when he was christened (my niece also got one for her christening), not your traditional present but they'll get years of fun from them (my 2 girls have got one), they wear REALLY well and can then be passed down to their children, FAR better than some stuffy silver trinket that sits in a cupboard and eventually goes black!!

Here's a link but if you type wheelybug into google you'll find all the different shops that do them, at 3 she's probably better off with a large one as it will last her years (in fact, Mummy & Daddy can go on it too!!), but if you can't stretch that far then she would be OK with a small one too.

if you wanted to get a keepsake that will last forever cos its so special, then this is another idea,
i had to buy two christening pressies for this weekend and went into swarovski crystal shop and got crystal dummies with either blue or pink ribbon and thye are gorgeous. they also had lovely pieces for older kiddies
or what bout a links of london sweetie bracelet for a kiddie?

premium bonds? I got loads for my christening, i am still waiting to win on it though, nearly 24 years later, lol

+ 1 for the photos
+ 1 for the premium bonds

My suggestion would be something for the future. I received a really nice engraved fountain pen for christening and I'm using it 22 years on, its my favourite pen.

Anything that will last and be used/cherished years after the christening is a good gift.
