'From Little Acorns' Christening Cufflinks In PERSONALISED Box
Our silver coloured Christening cufflinks have a finely detailed acorn on a twig shaft leading to a perfectly formed oak leaf and are presented in our personalised Christening Keepsake box; all made from lead free pewter.
Christening gifts for boys
The proverb "Great oaks from little acorns grow" is engraved on the underside of the box lid alongside a space for a hand-stamped message.
This striking Christening gift for boys is designed to be used and appreciated later in their adult life, perhaps being re-presented on their 18th or 21st birthday.
The "adult size" cufflinks are a lasting keepsake that can be used later in their life, long after the baby clothes, and teddy bear picture frames have been out grown and given to the charity shop!
We can fit up to 16 characters or spaces onto the underside of the box lid and It’s up to you what you want! The cufflinks and box come complete with a ribbon tied certificate for you to add your own personal message.
Strong, steadfast, enduring and mighty, the Oak tree, the very essence of England, symbolises: stability, hospitality, honour, strength, eternity, liberty and endurance.
Each oak leaf is 15mm (0.6”) wide and the acorns diameter at its widest point is 8mm (0.3”). The Christening keepsake box is 5cm (1.9”) in diameter and comes, with the rolled certificate, in a black presentation gift box.
The certificate does not specify Christening so it can be given for other occasions too, for example cufflinks for the Groom.
All of our Christening gifts are made by hand from solid polished lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead). Using solid metal means the surface of your cufflinks and box will never flake or rust, just wash with warm soapy water to clean.
We hand stamp the box lid using traditional, industrial tools to indent every letter into the pewter by hand. Therefore, variations in the marks made during this process are to be expected, and spacing and alignment of letters are not precise; but it all adds to the charm and make your gift unique!
