Another part of christening ceremony is for the grandparents to present a gift, now I know both sets will be buying loads but I suggested as a symbolic gifts my parents give a tree to be planted in our garden for my son butcannot think of what hubbys parents can give as a symbol? ?Godparents giving candle and white blanket, any other suggestions?

My sister is DS' godmother. She got him a silver compass in the jewellers and had the back engraved saying 'To ....., for all your journeys in life' Thought it was fab, very thoughtful and a lovely keepsake
