Let’s Spoon – Golden Spoon For A Golden Baby August 6, 2021 – Posted in: Blog

A common practice in our culture is to give the parents of new babies or babies who are being Christened baby items. People often talk about babies who are blessed, either with good, loving parents or wealth, as being born “with a silver spoon in their mouth.” This is a long-standing tradition throughout America and parts of Europe. Collectable items that are made from silver are still given as gifts of love and respect to honor the new baby. A spoon, baby rattles, cups, diaper pins, and other items can be purchased by retail businesses and stores through providers who are experienced in artistic silver object manufacturing and celebrates the introduction of the child into the community. 

The deep meaning of the event calls for a gift that will always remind the recipient of the occasion that a golden spoon is an exquisite gift to be treasured forever.


For as long as humans have been eating, they’ve needed an eating utensil to scoop up the food. Sometimes cupping your hands just didn’t do the trick. And that’s when the spoon took its rightful spot at the table. 

The word “spoon” is derived from the cochlea in Greek and Latin, meaning “spiral shell,” because shells were often used as spoons early on due to their shape and size. It wasn’t until bones were attached as handles that the spoon we know today began to take shape.

The earliest iterations of spoons were made from materials that were most readily available to the ancient civilizations that utilized them. Nearly every civilized part of the world used spoons in one form or another throughout history.

The spoon saw several design changes throughout the Renaissance and into the 18th century. It was then that the modern design, a narrow, elliptical-shaped bowl with a rounded end of the handle, stuck for the centuries that followed.

The size may vary, but the simple, yet the sophisticated shape of the spoon remains unchanged.


Historians date the idea of giving sterling silver baby items as a gift back as far as the eighteenth century. A 22K Golden spoon became the hallmark of children’s gifts, as a token of monetary or material wealth as a symbol of investment in the child’s future. 

In some cases, practical gifts for the child to use as an adult were given, such as napkin rings, knives, and tankards. 22K Golden spoons remain one of the most popular new baby gifts.

 Imagine being informed of a friend’s baby shower that’s to occur in the next few days. Where will you get all these products? And how will you ensure the quality of what you’re buying?

Annaprashan Ceremony :

Babies are fed breast milk until around six months of age, after which it’s recommended to start feeding them solid foods. As this is a momentous occasion, especially in Hindu tradition, this event is often celebrated in the form of a traditional ritual known as Annaprashan.


Annaprashan or ‘rice initiation’ is a popular Hindu custom that marks the baby’s transition from consuming liquid foods to solids. Annaprashan ceremony signifies the next step in the baby’s growth. Dating back to the Vedic ages, Annaprashan is known to be practised in South Asia and Iran. Depending on the culture or region the parents are from, it can take place anywhere between five and nine months of age.


Traditionally, rice is upheld for its life-sustaining qualities and is a part of all religious functions. Consequently, kheer (a sweet rice dish) became an important part of all religious rituals. The sweet (white) colour of kheer, which was seen as a symbol of purity and divinity, also worked in its favour. Kheer or payasam is the first solid food fed to a baby, and hence is an integral part of Annaprashan.
