Hi. Can anyone help - what is an appropriate christening gift? I've never actually been to one before but we have one coming up in January. Thanks :)

I usually go for a nice classic book, we are going to one next month and I've got a book of classic poetry as a gift.

I usually get something like one of those Peter Rabbit/Beatrix Potter anthologies - like this www.thebookpeople.co.uk/.../qs_product_tbp
I had one when I was a littl'un and loved it, and always think books are a nice gift!

Yes a book definitely. I was God Mother a few weeks back and I bought a personalised traditional nursery rhyme hard back from mothercare on line. Easily worth the £16 I paid

I have bought these wooden hearts as christening gifts before - www.ebay.co.uk/.../181075415846
Think they are a nice memento of the day :)

being a godparent I have always bought a children's bible. other nice gifts were special personalised name/birth/weight things in frames from not on the high street.
