SILVER CHRISTENING GIFTS

The tradition of giving a gift at a Christening began in the 4th century, and was used to symbolise the gifts given by the three Wise Men to the newborn Jesus Christ. From the Tudor period this gift was often silver, as it represented wealth and independence for when the Child grew older. The saying “born with a silver spoon in his mouth” comes from this practice.
