We got vouchers for handprinting in plaster for each of DH's godchildren, they do it in BT2, you go into the store and they take a mould of the child's hand and/or foot and bake them and present them in a frame, they're really lovely http://www.brownthomas.com/gifts/imprints.aspx

As a godparent, I would suggest going down a more traditional route with silver. Silver photo frame, money box, napkin ring.. that kind of thing

For christenings I always buy a few books as gaeilge and wrap them up in a ribbon. Sounds odd but has always gone down really well and been a bit different than the ordinary http://www.cic.ie/children.aspx

I would also recommend the BTs Baby prints or a voucher for photographer to have baby pics done :wv

I love the handprint idea, I seen them a few times before. I always go for Willow Tree figurienes - maybe something like these? http://willowtree.info/gifts/fathers-family

It might be too late but what about Prize Bonds?

The plaster prints are a great idea - some florists do that service now too (one in our local shopping centre does) so you could see if any near you do it - might be easier to get to than BT if there's none in the area. I really hate the Willow Tree figurines - I find the blank faces quite spooky myself :-8
