Christening Gifts For The Prince Who Has Everything By Hannah Norman
With his Christening soon upon us, baby Prince George of Cambridge’s nearest and dearest will be focusing their efforts on trying to find the perfect gift for the young Royal. But let’s be honest – despite his parents’ solid grounding, he really does want for nothing, so what do you buy the baby who has everything? Time to think outside the traditional gift box….
Jack And The Beanstalk Bubble Blower
For a bit of fun and a gift with a difference, opt for a Jack And The Beanstalk Bubble Blower. Whilst this may well end up amusing big kids more than the intended recipient, the sweet depiction of Jack climbing up the giant stalk is charmingly realised. Hours of fun!
£55, available from Royal Selangor.
Beefeater Baby Onesie
Fabulous, fun and just a little whimsical, Karen Brost London’s Beefeater baby gro is just the thing for a prince whose ancestors would have been very familiar with the iconic Yeomen of old. Stylish imagery meets intricate textile design, resulting in not just a fun baby gro but also a serious fashion statement.
£45, available exclusively at Fred Segal Los Angeles and Liberty of London.
The baby prince surely already has a burgeoning library of literary classics, so what about bookends to keep his tomes in order? Royal Selangor’s Cinderella bookends feature the pumpkin on one side and Cinders’ carriage on the other, with the eponymous princess peeping through the window. Handily, the bookends also double up as a money box, with coin slots on both sides.
£139, available from Royal Selangor.
His Royal Grobag
A handy essential for doting parents with busy lives, as they facilitate sleep on the go, these Royalty-themed sleep bags are limited edition, with just 70 for each gender having been made. The “His Royal” grobag features a helicopter, referencing Prince William’s career as a search and rescue pilot, while “Her Royal” grobag features a hockey stick, symbolizing Kate’s love for the game. The couple’s dog Lupo also features prominently in both designs.
Teddy Bears’ Picnic Christening Mug
If you can’t quite bring yourself to break entirely from tradition, Royal Selangor has a Christening mug with a fun difference. A friendly teddy waves from the ribbon-shaped handle, marrying a beautiful finish with a playful element that every child – Royal or otherwise! – will cherish.
£45, available from Royal Selangor.
