The contents of a memory box can serve as a walk down memory lane with your little one, when they are old enough to hear the story of the day they were born and the months that followed.
I have 3 girls. My oldest had a plastic storage box with all of her important milestone memories tucked inside. My middle daughter was gifted a memory box as a baby shower gift. Not particularly pretty, but practical and sturdy and somewhat nicer than a plastic smelling box. My youngest? She had a plastic smelling box.
A memory box doesn’t seem like great gift. In fact, when I received it as a gift, I thought ‘nice box’ and then went on to open it looking for a gift inside.
That is why the Bebe Gift Box was designed to not only present your gifts in a beautiful way, but to be a useful and thoughtful gift in itself.
WHAT TO KEEP IN A MEMORY BOX
Newspaper from the day they were born
Going home from the hospital outfit
Hospital Wrist Band
Baby Book if you have one
Lock of hair
Blankie or swaddle
At the end of every year, make a photo book of them
Anything to commemorate the year they were born such as:
A newly minted coin
As they get older:
Remember, don’t keep too much. One day you will pass this box on to your grown child and they won’t thank you if they need a storage unit to house their memories!
