Frames for christenings
A christening is an important event for a child, it marks the start of their journey with God and life. The event brings together family and friends in a joyous celebration of God's love being bestowed on this new addition to the family. A christening will only happen once so it is important to mark it appropriately with the giving of a quality gift, but what do you get a baby? eFRAME has some suggestions that may help.
A frame only
It seems a shame for that christening gown to be hidden in a draw and slowly ascend to the attic. Why not frame it instead? Box frames can look a little clunky and take up precious space, an alternative idea is to hang the gown on the wall, get an empty frame, no glazing and no backboard, and place this around the gown, giving the illusion of it being in a frame. A large swept frame would suit this idea and add an element of class and vintage chic.
If you'd like to order a frame without glazing and backing board please either call us before placing your order on 01480 214777 or leave a comment in the comments box at checkout stating that you'd like your frame with no backing or glazing.
On this day
A day they won't remember but a date they will never forget. Why not present the little one with a collage frame displaying the date of their christening, a perfect personalised addition to the nursery. You can then surround this date with wonderful family pictures for a truly personalised gift.
Signature frames and mounts
As the little one won't remember their christening, it may be nice to have a document of all the guests that were there. Frame a picture of the baby in the centre of an extra thick mount and ask guests to sign around the picture and even leave a short message. This will then stay with baby as they grow into an adult, giving them a memento of a day they can't remember but was an important event in their life.
Multi opening frames
Tell the story
Their pride and joy on their special day, give the proud parents a gift they can keep forever, long after the little one is not so little anymore. Use a multi opening frame to display a photo of the precious little one and the date of their christening and name underneath in a smaller custom sized opening.

If you need a way to show your appreciation to the godparents of your child for being there on the special day why not frame a picture of them with the little one in a special godmother/godfather frame.
