A Christening Gift

Monday, 12 August 2013

As my friends and I settle into our early thirties, it seems that hen parties and weddings are slowly being replaced with births and christenings.  As someone who had babies a bit earlier than the rest of my circle it's feels nice to find that we're all sort of coming to the same stage now. We've got a christening come up at the end of August and I've been mulling over what to buy the little fella as a christening gift.      I think books are always a winner with children, and parents too, so I've finally decided on a couple of classics from M.Sasek's collection of travel guides for kids. I've gone with This Is London and This Is New York...

First published in the 1950s & 60s, these books have an fabulously retro illustrative style and are a definite must for any modern nursery or playroom. There are lots more in the collection and I'm definitely going to be collecting them for my kids too - we only have This Is New York at the moment.

  1. Totally lovely gift idea! We did have the This is London one that I bought a few years ago when we were heading down there for a few days, but I just gave it away a couple of weeks ago. Wouldn't the covers make fab wall posters for kids rooms? x

    1. They really would actually! Nice idea... :)
