Cool christening keepsakes


You don’t have to look far to find traditional christening gifts – the majority are silver trinkets or personalised mementoes and they tend to be at the more expensive end of baby gifts. However, the Big Tomato Company have created beautiful christening mugs that won’t break the bank. There are seven child-sized mugs to choose from, inspired by the original Mother Goose rhyme about children born on each day of the week.

When my son was born on a Wednesday, it did cross my mind that "Wednesday’s child is full of woe". However, I was happy to see that according to the Big Tomato Company, Wednesday’s child is no longer full of woe but now "fears no foe" – a much more positive outlook!

The cream porcelain mugs feature platinum lettering and come gift boxed at £10.95 each.

The Big Tomato Company also have a terrific range of kid’s mugs with cute slogans, perfect for a Milo or a  huge ‘baby’ cino. There is one to suit every kid. I certainly know which ones I would pick for my own children and I think ‘Bossy Boots’, ‘Bruiser’, ‘Cheeky Monkey’ and ‘Chatterbox’ would be in the mix.

The kid’s mugs are £8.50 and come gift boxed. The Big Tomato Company ship to Australia by arrangement.
