If you’re struggling for first birthday present ideas, then consider giving a silver baby spoon to the baby in your life.

We’ve all heard the expression ‘born with a silver spoon in your mouth’ and most of us know that this means ‘to be born into a wealthy family’. But did you know, that this expression was first discovered in print in the United States as far back 1801. It refers to the fact that medieval spoons tended to be made of wood and therefore if you happened to be born with a baby silver spoon in your mouth, then this would indicate that you were indeed part of quite a fortunate and rich family.

Some of the silver baby spoons on this page can be engraved or personalised, whereas others come as part of a cutlery set or alongside a silver egg cup. Silver baby spoons also make great christening gifts.
