Baby keepsake boxes make the perfect gift for any expecting parents, both thoughtful and practical, it’s something both the parent and baby will want to take with them through their journey on this world.

Memory boxes that will stand the test of time and be brought out during every family gathering, are a priceless gift, anyone will be sure to treasure.

Whether you’re after a special keepsake box to store your baby’s first haircut or their birth certificate, we’ve looked through them all. From sterling silver to gorgeous ceramics and engraved wood, there’s a baby memory box for every family and every aesthetic.

What to look out for when picking your baby keepsake box:


Size is important, consider what you want to store. Of course, bigger items like baby’s first shoes or bib require a bigger keepsake box, and smaller items like teeth and a first curl can have a memory box a lot smaller.

There’s plenty of variety out there, from A4 keepsake boxes disguised as books, to first teeth boxes that snuggly fit a £1 coin. Whatever your needs, there’s a precious baby keepsake box for you.

The test of time

Think about longevity and how long you intend to hold onto the keepsake box, some keepsake boxes will be able to last a lot longer than others without damage. If you’re looking to hold onto these memories forever, sterling silver and ceramic keepsake boxes are your go-to – with some care and love they’ll stand the test of time.


Of course, aesthetic is also important. Whether you want the box to match your little one’s nursery or be a timeless classic, this is something you should consider. Timeless kid’s storybook illustrations like Peter Rabbit or Disney’s Pooh are a great way to go.

If illustrations aren’t your thing, engraved wood and sterling silver keepsake boxes are a timeless classic and will fit any aesthetic, as your baby’s room changes and they grow up.
