The good Godmother’s gift guide



So what kind of godmother are you going to be? This is your chance to shape up as the cool, go-to figure in your godchild’s life. Whether you’re planning to host the best sleepovers any child could dream of, provide breathing space between stressed-out teens and parents or guiding them through their 20s, it starts here.

Take your first step into godmotherhood with our guide to gifts that go beyond the christening.

Picture perfect


Go classic with a Wedgwood Peter Rabbit photo frame (£55). Pop in a photo from their birth and it will be a frame that can move with them from their nursery, to their first bedroom, to university halls and their first home.  


Future fairytales

We love this adorable book of fairytales from Not On The High Street (£32.95). Old and new stories, including Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Gingerbread Man are personalised for your godchild with hand-drawn illustrations. The perfect source of bedtime stories and a special keepsake that can be passed on to their own children.


Champagne & crystal


One to be put away for their 18th birthday; a pair of Waterford Happy Celebration champagne flutes (£105) plus a bottle of fizz from the year of their birth – or another significant year, if you want to go vintage.


Personal pendant

Another gift to save until they’re a little older is a timeless Stilla pendant from Astley Clarke (from £140). Choose from moonstone, labradorite, milky aqua quartz or amethyst, picking out your godchild’s birthstone for a new heirloom.


Birthday bank account


Do something now that will be a godsend in years to come. Setting up an ISA in your godchild’s name and depositing into it on every birthday up until their 21st will become a tidy sum when they need it most. Grateful won’t even cut it.
