Panyno shoe giveaway

Panyno shoe giveaway

Did you watch the christening of Princess Charlotte? I loved seeing the traditional pram, and George toddling along holding his daddy’s hand. While the family were chatting outside the church, I laughed as George made his own entertainment, tippy-toeing, obviously in a world of his own.

The dress Princess Charlotte wore was beautiful. Apparently she is the seventh child to have worn it.

Do you have a traditional gown in your family? We didn’t get the boys christened, and I don’t think I’d have put them in a gown if we had. The christenings at our church always take place in the main service, so I’ve been to many, many christenings!

I’ve got one pair of super soft 100% leather baby shoes to giveaway. The white shoes are by Spanish company Panyno. They are size 0-6m (European size 16), and would be perfect for a christening shoe, though would be lovely as a pram shoe for any occasion. They come in a sturdy tin, so you can start your own christening clothing tradition!

UK entrants only, please. Giveaway ends 11:59pm on 28th July 2015.

To enter, you must leave me a comment on this post – tell me if you have any clothing traditions in your family  – maybe you’ve got christening gowns that get passed on like the Royal family, you always pull out the jumpers at Christmas, a blanket you love to snuggle under and watch movies, lovely cardigans your mum always knits… You get the idea! 

Don’t worry if there aren’t any traditions in your family; these shoes could kickstart that!

All other ways to enter are optional, but give you more chances to win! See the full T&Cs on Gleam.

    We have a shawl that my mum wore to her christening, that we all then wore to ours and all of my mums grandchildren have all worn to their christenings! (I cant seem to load the link to enter via gleam though)

    • July 7, 2015 / 5:36 pm

      Oh my goodness! Thank you Lynn. The link is fixed. I wondered why no one had clicked that today!

      It sounds like a great tradition to have such a shawl, and unisex too!

    Pjs for a movie night!

  3. July 7, 2015 / 6:48 pm

    We don’t really have any. I remember my aunt’s family had a ancient Christening gown all the babies on their side wore – my nan (her mother-in-law) put it in the washing machine… Thankfully it came out okay!!

    • July 7, 2015 / 6:57 pm

      Eeep! I’ll bet they were staring at the door with anticipation, waiting for the cycle to end! Glad it turned out okay!

    The only clothing tradition we have that I can think of is Christmas themed pyjamas on Christmas Eve – the kids love it and it really adds to the Christmas spirit! 🙂

    Can’t say we have any. I do still have a dress I bought from Etam about 24 years ago that I still wear. It does have a few holes in it but I only wear it as a “house” dress, certainly not for going out in!

    • July 13, 2015 / 5:55 pm

      If that’s a tradition, Sue, I am very traditional! Have a look at my Instagram account – I have mended my favourite yoga pants so many times they are going to be more mending than pants soon!

      That’s your tradition, Karl? Or you don’t have one? Thanks for entering!

    At Christmas we always have a theme. We have been musicals, presents, dressed up, masks and so many more , such fun.

    We are making our own traditions – my mum has crocheted a christening shawl for my little girl that I’m planning to pass down to her when she is older.

    We don’t have any traditions as yet to be honest. Me and my husband are having our first baby and we have people who are going to knit things for us but it’s not necessarily a tradition as yet. I think I will keep bits from this baby for future babies of ours though :), maybe like a special cardigan or a special dress/suit, like you said, maybe these shoes could start something off :).

    I can’t think of any but I have saved my wedding dress in the hope my daughter will be able to wear it or make use of it for her wedding

  47. July 27, 2015 / 9:39 pm

    I don’t think I have any – although Xmas day we all have to dress smart for dinner

    • July 27, 2015 / 9:46 pm

  48. Jamie Millard

    July 27, 2015 / 11:42 pm

    My gran knits all of the babies in our family a pretty pram blanket with the baby’s name on it, she just loves that she finds out the name so much earlier than the rest of us! 🙂

    • July 28, 2015 / 4:29 am

      Haha, that makes her pretty special!

  50. Leanne Bell
    July 27, 2015 / 11:56 pm

    My Daughter’s both wore the same Christening dress and if I am bless with a 3rd little girl then she will wear it too. I’ve also loved dressing my baby in her older sisters clothes – there is something kind of nice about remembering when my almost 6 year old was that small 🙂 x

    • July 28, 2015 / 4:24 am

      I have that too, dressing Noah in james’ old clothes.

    We pass a newborn blanket between new babies in the family. This blanket has been crocheted by my mum for her first grandchild and since have been passed on 4 times. Currently is awaiting for a new baby to be born.

    We don’t have any traditions but think i may start one 🙂

  53. July 28, 2015 / 7:25 am

    We have a family christening robe made from my mother’s wedding dress.

  54. July 28, 2015 / 9:44 am

    I was Christened purely through “expected tradition” rather than because my parents were religious so I had a gown but I’m an atheist so my kids haven’t been christened. I did have a beautiful wool baby blanket my great gran knitted me & my son and daughter both used/are using that.

  57. Keshia Esgate
    July 28, 2015 / 12:17 pm

    No traditions as such but all the baby clothes get passed down to the next baby born in the family so they get well worn!

    My mother made a traditional gown for her eldest grand child’s christening 32 years ago. Pure silk with lace, pin tucks and ribbon trim. It has since been used for each of her seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren, the most recent being my own grandson last week. Six times she’s had to change the ribbon from blue to pink and back again! Each child’s name and christening date has been embroidered onto the petticoat.

    • July 28, 2015 / 5:16 pm

      Oh my goodness, that is so special! Thank you for sharing such a sweet story.

    Clothes wise we don’t have any traditions, but I do have a few blankets that were mine which were passed down to my children. My mum has a christmas jumper which she wears every year, I think it was probably fashionable in the 80s, very sparkly!!!

    we always give our newborns a blankie that is kept with me through pregnancy
