If you would prefer a baptism present which is less religious or a naming present, we are able to supply a beautiful papier mache or hand painted capital letter complete with individualised message.
Gifts for godchildren are not always religious and the "naming" ceremony ties in beautifully with the message. "M is ..." the verse below can be applied to any initial.
This particular "M" above was fashioned from an old carved wooden letter and was about 20" high but letters can be any shape, style or size. Papier Mache capital letters start at £45 plus delivery dependent on size and design.
You could, instead, have a watercolour of balloons as above with the child's name underneath.
Alternatively, commission a stunning original capital letter painted by a known watercolour artist, Lyndsay Russell to your specification. Lyndsay has published a children's Illustrated book The Rainbow Weaver. Why not choose a beautiful original watercolour like the "G" above, either specific for a girl or boy (see alternatives above). Both sizes come with a personalised poem specific to the first letter of the child's name.

You have a choice of 2 watercolour sizes. The smaller size, comes in a frame, while the larger size is set in a bevelled mount. Price from £55.00 plus delivery.
Both come with an original poem specific to your letter, either on the back of frame or loose dependent on the size you choose. Watercolour paintings can include a rugby ball or football, boat or train (boys) and girls come as picture above. If you wish a particular colour scheme then please let me know. If there is a notable item you know the family are keen on, this may be possible to incorporate; just ask. As you can see, the actual name is always placed on the building blocks on the base. A picture the child will treasure as a keepsake for life. These can now be ordered on-line, please click icon below.
Why not also purchase a signed copy of Lyndsay's children's illustrated book "The Rainbow Weaver" as a companion present. The artist will provide a personalised message. Price is £10 plus delivery including personalised fly leaf. A recent editorial in Yours Magazine reviews this gift, "After trekking around for something "different, we bought an 'initial' watercolour painting by artist Lyndsay Russell from Driftwood Dreams for our god-daughter. We put it in an M&S Mother of Pearl frame with the artist's biography, the poem, our message and the dedication. We also included a signed copy of Lyndsay’s book The Rainbow Weaver - and I have to say, we were really proud to be able to give this most beautiful gift package.
The parents were thrilled and hopefully both will be something our god-daughter will want to keep."
