Kidadl's Top Pick
We think all these baby bracelets are gorgeous, but if you're short on time and need to buy quickly then look no further than this beautiful silver bangle.
1. Hersey Child's Silver Expanding Bangle
This classic sterling silver bangle is the top of our list of first jewellery gifts. There are a selection of fonts to choose from for your personalised message of up to 25 characters, it costs an extra £10 but we think the price of this bracelet is very good to begin with. It also includes a nice gift box and cleaning cloth so the bangle can really look its best as special christening jewellery.
- Price: £35
- Expands from 45mm to 55m
- Can engrave personal message (for extra £10)
Best For Families On A Budget
2. Hurley Burley Personalised Silver Christening Bracelet
We picked this as our budget buy for a silver baby bracelet, and it's a beautiful piece of first baby jewellery. We love that the personalisation is free and if you include the cute teddy bear charm, it's only £21. It comes in a lovely box so would make an ideal new baby or christening present.
- Price: £19 (without teddy bear charm)
- Bracelet is 13.5cm long but clasp can be hooked into any loop
- Comes with free personalisation and gift box
Best For A Christening Present
3. Diamond Affair Sterling Silver 925 Baby Christening Bracelet
If you're shopping around for christening bracelets, this is a lovely classic design made of high quality sterling silver. We particularly love the tiny feet design, though the makers do have other variations available. Note that the personalisation option is a bit pricey, an extra £20 for up to 20 characters, but we think this is a great premium choice for a newborn or young baby.
- Price: £69
- Personalised jewellery engraving costs extra £20
- Measures 45mm
Best Luxury Bracelet
4. Noa Mini Yellow Gold Baby Bracelet
If money is no object and you want to buy a really special new baby or christening gift, then Noa are a stylish brand to look at. We love the simple yet stylish design of this 18ct gold bracelet, which comes with a beautiful plush elephant and gift box. The makers do offer other (much more expensive) baby bracelets but we think this is a perfect luxury gold bracelet for baby girl or boy.
- Price: £500
- Adjustable 13cm to 15cm chain
- Comes with plush elephant toy and gift box
Best Diamond Bracelet
5. D For Diamond Silver Diamond Set Star Expandable Baby Bangle
Buying a child their first diamond is a really special gift, and this is a great way to do it without overspending. We love the classic design of this bangle and the cute star with little diamond accent. It doesn't come with a personalisation option, but that just means that you can get a beautiful piece of baby jewellery that can be passed down the generations.
- Price: £49
- Expandable up to 55mm
- Includes diamond
Best Gold Bangle
6. Molly Brown Gold Vermeil Heritage Bangle
If you're looking at gold bangles for a baby boy or girl, we think this is a lovely design. It's a classic bangle that will expand until the child is about three years old, and we love the intricate edges that makes it stand out from the rest. The premium gift box also matches the high quality of Molly Brown's baby jewellery.
- Price: £86
- 18ct gold vermeil
- Expandable from 48mm to 52mm
Best Birthstone Bangle
7. Molly Brown Personalised May Birthstone Christening Bangle
Birthstone jewellery makes the perfect gift for babies and young children, and we love this personalised silver bangle. There are different birthstones available depending on when the baby was born, and personalised engraving is available for up to 13 characters. We think this makes a perfect christening gift or present for a new baby.
- Price: £90
- Includes personalised engraving
- Expands from 50mm to 55mm
As well as all of these gorgeous baby bracelets, there are many out there on the market for toddlers and older kids too. If you want bracelets for older children, see these three great choices.
Best Charm Bracelet
8. Mini Bloom Mini Create Your Own Personalised Sterling Bracelet
Charm bracelets are particularly popular pieces of jewellery thanks to brands like Pandora, and we love this one from Bloom Boutique. We love how you can personalise this jewellery, right from the bracelet (ivory or pink pearl) to the charms (choice of birthstone, letter, animal, and heart or star). Obviously we wouldn't recommend children under 36 months wearing this because of its small parts, but it's a lovely first charm bracelet for young children.
- Price: £21
- Choice of two bracelet styles and includes four charms
- Bracelet is 160mm
Best For Under 5s
9. Lily Belle Girls' Personalised Glitter Stretch Bead Bracelet
Toddlers and young children may want to be more involved in choosing jewellery, so we think these personalised bracelets are a fun way for them to pick their favourite design without breaking the bank. They'll love choosing either glitter or velvet materials in different colours, as well as the metal and shape for the tag, which can be personalised for no extra cost.
- Price: £22
- Available in three different sizes
- Choice of materials, metals and shape
Best For Under 10s
10. Cotton Twist Personalised Wildflower Bracelet Making Kit
This one is a bit different! It is definitely one for older children, but can be given as a gift to younger kids if they are supervised at all times (as the beads are a choking hazard). We think this is a great value piece of kit as up to 10 personalised bracelets can be made, so it could be a great party activity. The beads themselves are high quality too with a lovely floral theme.
- Price: £16.95
- Kit makes up to 10 bracelets
- Box sticker can be personalised
