Life has to many moments to celebrate and remember – moments that can’t be captured with just a photo. Think of all of your most precious belongings. Could you fit them all into a photo album or scrapbook? No !That’s why memory keepsake boxes are the perfect way to store your memories to keep safe and look back on for years to come.
What is a Keepsake Box?
A keepsake box is a place for you to store your memories, the memories of your children or memories of a loved one who has passed away. Our boxes are made with high-quality materials so you know that your precious moments will be tucked away safely.
A memory box is the perfect way to hang on to your cherished items that you can’t bear to part with. Each time you open your memory box, you’ll have a flood of memories from the past and of the people that mean the most to you. They are a way of preserving our very lives.
What goes in a Keepsake Box?
You can put absolutely anything in your memory box. Think of it kind of like a time capsule! What do you want to remember when you open that box back up? You might want it to have a certain memory – a graduation or 1st birthday party – or perhaps it will be a conglomerate of your special trinkets that you’ve collected over the years.
When a loved one passes, dealing with their belongings can be one of the hardest things to process. In this case, using a memory box to store a piece of their clothing, notes and letters, photos, and jewellery can be a therapeutic way to move on without having to completely remove their belongings from your life. You can visit them whenever you want in their memory box.
Who should you give a memory box to?
While a memory box can be given to anyone at any time, they can be especially helpful for those with dementia. Creating a memory box for them can bring comfort to their otherwise confused and fragile mind. In many cases, a person with dementia may be suffering from short-term memory loss while their long-term memory stays nearly intact.
Memory boxes are also great graduation gifts! No matter is the graduation is from pre-school or college, they’ll hold their value forever. You don’t have to be a parent gifting their child a memory box, it’s a great gift for sisters, best friends or mentor/mentees.
You may also choose to use one memory box for a whole group of people and keep it in a place where you will all be able to revisit it. For example, a teacher may want to give their class a memory box of their year together. The teacher may keep the box at their school for students to revisit year after year or set a rotation for the box to be passed around. This is also a great way to keep the class in touch when the school year is over!
Memory boxes are a great way to preserve our lives when photos just won’t cut it. Order yours from Lily Grace Keepsakes today and rest assured, you’re getting quality that matches that of your memories.
