The new arrival of a baby is something exciting and beautiful. Weir and Sons pride ourselves in helping you find a gift that is right both for your recipient and your price range, and have done since 1869. Here to help take the confusion out of baby gift and christening gift purchases, we have put together a short gift guide.
Photo frames are ideal for most occasions, especially to mark the birth or christening of a baby. What better way to preserve the memory of such a wonderful occasion than through a gorgeous photo presented in a Silver photo frame. A gift that won’t lose its magic, a silver photo frame really is thoughtful and practical.
It’s very common for a family member, very often a godparent, to purchase the new baby’s first piece of jewellery. Most popular are christening bracelets for both baby boys and baby girls. A bangle is something precious and sentimental that can be passed down from generation to generation, a really beautiful gift to give to a new-born. Choose from a selection of contemporary, classic or Celtic bangles.
What could be sweeter than the gift of a lullaby to the precious new arrival? Weir & Sons have a gorgeous selection of music boxes for both boys and girls and in unisex styles too. We adore the Pink music box which has a silver-plated lid ideal for engraving. It also opens up and doubles as a jewellery box for hen the child is a little older. Another favourite is the Newbridge Silver Little Duck music box, suitable for baby boy or baby girl!
Silverware is one of the most traditional gifts to present to the parents of a new-born. To be more accurate – the giving of a piece of silver to a new baby, dates back as far as the 18th century when people gave spoons, plates, bowls, cups and forks of silver when a baby was born. Our collection of gifts resonates with these traditional ideas but are designed to reflect more contemporary and modern tastes. The collection includes, but certainly isn’t limited to: Silver mugs, Rattles, Silver spoons and Money Boxes. Some of our favourites are listed below.
The most precious things in the world don’t last forever, but a keepsake to mark those moments will always serve as a wonderful reminder. That’s why Weir & Sons stock a selection of keepsake trinkets which include first curl and first tooth keepsake boxes and birth silver certificate holders.
All of the items featured here can be bought online – all items linked through their picture – and in-store in our Silver department.
