Christening gifts have for centuries been a traditional part of a christening, baptism or naming ceremony. They are an important way for invited guests to congratulate the proud parents and also present a keepsake for the infant.

Throughout history precious metals have been associated with the christening ceremony and the giving of silver gifts originates from the tradition of presenting a baby with a silver coin as a christening gift. This symbolised good luck and prosperity and was also a practical way of giving financial assistance. In Victorian times this practice evolved into the giving of many different types of objects made from silver.
