Christenings can be an incredibly special occasion in the early life of your little one - a chance to get together to celebrate their birth and welcome them into the community, whether that means your loving friends and relatives or the wider Church family.
Although perhaps not as popular as they once were, Christenings are still very frequent in the church calendar. The Church of England perform around 10,000 Christenings every month, and non-religious Naming Ceremonies have grown in popularity in recent years. Whether you're religious or not, one thing is for sure - this tradition's not going anywhere.
Tradition plays a huge part in Christening arrangements, from the inherited family gown to the silver spoon and Christening bangle. These are things you'll want to treasure forever and there's sure to be a lot of look back on fondly in years to come.
If you're struggling with ideas for the perfect Christening gift or looking for a storage solution for your child's special mementos, a Personalised Wooden Keepsake Box from Create Gift Love could be ideal. Available in quality solid oak and a variety of sizes, we've got your memory storage covered!
Your Christening keepsake box will be carefully engraved with your child's name, the details of the ceremony and your own special message along the bottom of the lid - a well-wish for the recipient or perhaps a quote from the service would make a lovely gesture. With a simple dove illustration and a stunning natural wood finish, these boxes make a beautiful addition to a child's bedroom.
As well as gowns and gifts, our boxes have room for all your tokens from the day: cards, a gift list, dried flowers, readings, certificates, and of course photographs. It's a sentimental time capsule of one of life's first milestones.
All of our keepsake boxes are lovingly designed and made to order in our workshop in the UK, so you can be sure that quality is guaranteed. Our materials are all ethically sourced and we are proud members of The Woodland Trust.
The solid oak box offers a premium aesthetic and is available in two sizes: the standard 30cm x 20cm x 20cm or larger 46.5cm x 34.5cm x 16.5cm, for £140 and £190 respectively.
And don't forget, we have a whole range of gorgeous personalised gifts available for you. From wooden photo products to commemorate the event to our ever-popular "The Day You Became..." keyring, perhaps to mark the special date a Godparent entered your child's life.
