A guide to choosing baby keepsake boxes

Baby keepsake boxes can keep childhood memories and treasures safe for many years. There are many different types of keepsake boxes to choose from. This article will have a look at what type of keepsake boxes you can purchase.

From small to large

Keepsake boxes come in different sizes. They can be small to hold just a curl or a tooth, or a large box to keep other items in like bootees, newspaper clippings, cards and other memorabilia. You will need to decide what the keepsake box should store.
Silver boxes Jewellery shops sell small keepsake boxes. They are most commonly made of silver or silver plate, but gold too is sometimes used. Small round pots are made for baby’s first tooth or curl, and some have dual containers for holding both. Argos has a great keepsake box that combines a money box train with carriages that hold a tooth and a curl. You can also find the smaller pots made of glass with a motif or design on the top.
Larger boxes The larger memory boxes can be made from pottery or cardboard. Choose from colours that are appropriate for boys or girls. The larger cardboard folder type boxes are great for holding things like pictures, a copy of a newspaper from the day that they were born, cards received on the event of their births and memories of a baby’s first Christmas. You can also use keepsake books or albums in order to store photographs.

For older children

You can also get boxes that are like a small cabinet or a set of drawers. Made from cardboard, they are not very strong, but are good for storing things like a first set of baby clothes, bootees, mittens and hats.
As they grow As the baby gets older, you can have file type boxes to contain their achievements when they start school. Instead of buying expensive keepsake boxes, you can use ordinary but colourful folders and files bought from office shops. These are great for holding first writing books, drawings, certificates and cards made for mummy and daddy. The child can use them to store his or her pictures, and to build up a collection that will be invaluable once he or she becomes an adult.
