Give this cross as a Christening or Baptism or confirmation gift or for any event. Church groups may want to purchase them to present to parents when a new child is born or a young child has a birthday.
It comes in a yellow organza bag and included is a gift card you can sign, with this meaningful quote on the back: "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."
You may want to order more than one so you have them on hand to give to your friends who are expecting a baby or for those whose children are small.
When the child is older (over the age of 5) this can be his or her personal prayer cross. It is shaped unevenly in order to fit comfortably into his/her small hand. Just like the adult sized cross, it is better known as the 'comfort cross' as holding the soft wood offers one solace and over time the cross will develop its own natural patina adding hues and richness. Sometimes just holding this cross will bring comfort.
The Olive Tree is mentioned often in the Holy Book. Olive wood souvenirs do not require much care. Olive oil naturally protects them from corrosion and changes of color.
Dimensions: 1 1/2" wide x almost 3" long and 1/2" thick.
