Gifts for New Babies & Christenings

Home/Gifts for New Babies & Christenings

We have a whole host of interesting and original ideas for gifts for new babies & christenings as well as baptisms, first birthdays and special presents from parents and godparents. Many of which are made to order in our South West London studio and are personalised especially for the lucky recipient.

We hand craft our best selling Kids Rule wooden ruler height chart in a range of colours and designs – choose from a softwood, oak or walnut, metric or imperial measurements and whole range of colours from pink to blue, green, purple, white, grey and a range wood stains for those who love to enjoy the grain and the beauty of natural wood.

Other ideas for newborn babies and christenings include large metal letters in the child’s initials or name, funky neon lights and toy crates personalised to order (known as ‘crates on skates’).  Everything we offer provides a fun and well thought alternative to your more standard new baby or christening gifts and is sure to be well received in a nursery, playroom or child’s bedroom.

  • Our fabulous Personalised Wooden Crates on Skates, are made in the UK, provide great storage or display solutions and make unique gifts. They make the perfect log storage crate and also are ideal for as a muddy welly box. Based on the traditional “bushel” or apple crate, these wooden crates are available in four colours and all can be personalised to order. Choose your wheel and text colour too. These decorative crates have no limit to what they can be used for! Please note that these particular wooden crates are more rustic and hence rougher than our regular wooden crates on skates and we would therefore not recommend them for young children due to splinters.
