1. Saint Christopher’s Pendent
A piece of jewelery makes a wonderful gift, because it’s something that can be enjoyed every day. Saint Christopher is the Patron Saint of Travel. Jewelery bearing his symbol has been worn to protect both men and women when traveling for thousands of years. The story goes that Saint Christopher used to guide passers-by across a dangerous river. Until one day, a small child requested his help to cross the churning waters. As the child clambered onto his back, they both began to cross the river. To Christopher’s confusion, with every step he took the child seemed to get heavier and heavier. They finally made it across, and the child revealed his true form to be that of Jesus Christ. Because he was able to bear the burden Jesus carried, of the weight of the world’s sins, Saint Christopher was then made protector of all travelers.
2. Silver Plated Football Money Box
Trying to think of christening gifts for boys can often be quite challenging. However, if you happen to have a football-obsessed son, nephew or grandchild, then this will make the perfect gift. As well as being beautifully crafted, money boxes are also practical. They can help to teach children about the importance of saving and money management. If football isn’t their thing, you can get money boxes in pretty much any imaginable shape and style. So, whatever they happen to be into you’re guaranteed to find them one that they’ll love.
3. Silver Plated Spoon
Ever heard of the expression ‘born with a silver spoon in their mouth’? Upon being born we ‘inherit’ our family’s wealth, which invariably used to mean financial wealth. However, nowadays they’re more frequently used to symbolize the wealth of a family’s love. So, if you’d like to opt for something traditional, then this is the gift to go for. Silver spoons make wonderful family heirloom pieces, and you also have the option of personalizing the gift with a special engraved message.
