Keepsake boxes If you're looking for a unique and meaningful gift for any occasion - you may want to consider keepsake boxes. If you have not a clue as to what keepsake boxes are, they are special boxes that are meant to keep special memories and momentos. They come in all different sizes, depending on what they are meant for and depending on what they are supposed to hold. Some keepsake boxes are meant to only hold photos, so they are definitely smaller. Some keepsake boxes are meant for weddings and may be large enough to even hold a folded gown. Keepsake boxes make an excellent baby gift or wedding present. They may have special little drawers or spaces inside to keep small trinkets. Keepsake boxes are one of my favorite things to give for the birth of a baby. I love to get the newspaper from the day of their birth and something else significant from the year of their birth, put it inside one of the adorable keepsake boxes, and give it to them when they're born. My best friend cried when I gave one to her. I had it decorated all in pink, with pink ribbons and inside were some photos of her that she could pass along to her daughter someday. It was such an inexpensive and yet meaningful gift to give. I've bought plain keepsake boxes before for the sole purpose of decorating them. If you're taking a special vacation, decorate a box with photos from flyers, cut out words from brochures or magazines, plane tickets - anything that has meaning to you. Inside, you can put our souvenirs or photos from the trip. Keepsake boxes are such a wonderful way to keep special things safe and organized while allowing yourself a trip down memory lane whenever you open it up. I have even bought keepsake boxes for holding high school photos and memories that I want to hold onto but kept misplacing. I put my yearbooks inside as well. Keepsake boxes aren't just limited to special occasions - they can be for anything you dream of. They make excellent gifts for anybody for any reason, and you can decorate them with as much creativity as you want to. You can decorate plain keepsake boxes with paint, glitter, photos, cut outs, names, ribbons, buttons - anything that suits your fancy. The most expensive part of creating keepsake boxes or giving one as a gift, is just the initial purchase. You can spend as little or as much as you like. Many stores or websites have them in a variety of prices. Keepsake boxes have become so popular now that you can always find some version of them no matter where you go.
