A unique and very special Christening gift with meaning

This exquisite sterling silver Christening spoon, handmade in Galicia, northern Spain (close to the route of El Camino) has a handle in the shape of the cross of St James, cruz de Santiago. “La Cruz de Santiago es un símbolo que favorece el coraje y la esperanza ante las dificultades”

The 1,000-year-old pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is known as the Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish). Some 200,000 pilgrims travel to the city each year from all over the world to find inspiration and/or deeper spiritual understanding.

Dimensions: The sterling silver spoon measures 11cms in length and features a beautiful two tone St James cross crafted by artisans in Spain.

Over 250,000 pilgrims complete the final 100 km walk to Santiago each year, and qualify for the 'Compostela' or certificate. The Way of St. James criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago through Northern Spain. It is generally regarded as a journey of the body, mind and spirit. Modern pilgrims choose to do the Camino for personal, spiritual and/or religious reasons - or simply to take time out from their busy, modern lives. For many, the walk is to find inspiration - improving their outlook on life, bringing them into closer contact with nature and expanding their cultural horizons through contact with other pilgrims. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.

Gift this very special Christening spoon to wish someone strength and good fortune in their life. A unique Christening present to treasure forever. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can add a personal message on your behalf
