We would love it if you could share your favourite childrens’ books with our child, so we can build a library for them to grow into.

If you would like to give a book as a Christening gift, please email the name to us and we’ll enter it below to avoid duplication.

Please write a personal message in the book that explains to our child:

  • who you are
  • why you’ve recommended the book

Here’s an example and below a list of books we’ve already received.

Please no clothes and no toys. He’s growing far too quickly for clothes and we have no where to store many toys.

If you choose to give a monetary gift, it will be invested in a tax free account in our child’s name.
