With delighted customers singing its praises for almost a decade, this nostalgic personalised christening box is still capturing both hearts and memories alike.

A christening keepsake box inevitably becomes a treasure chest of firsts: first booties, baby’s first toy, first day at nursery, then school and so on. Give this box to make those firsts last, so they can be fondly looked back upon for many years top come. Oh, and the christening gown will probably fit in the large one as well.

What often surprises reviewers initially, is the sheer size of the large memory box. They are potential keepers of a lifetime’s worth of treasured moments, which makes them ideal for births and christenings. But, they also shine as a gift for weddings or engagements – because of the how much you can say on the plaque.

To make this memory storage more personal, a brushed aluminium plate will be stamped with your own choice of text. As this is box is usually bought as a christening gift, customers often choose to have:-

  1. The full name of the baby being christened on the top line
  2. “Christened” or “Baptised” and the date on the middle line
  3. The church, chapel or location on the bottom line

But, of course, you don’t need a christening to celebrate the joy of welcoming a new life into the world. You can give this box as a gift simply marking the baby’s birth. Instead of recording christening dates and locations on the plaque, you can display birth weights, a date of birth and maybe even the place too (space permitting).

And, your plaque could just as easily show the names of a couple to be married, the wedding date and then the church, chapel or location. That’s why we end up crafting a good portion of these as wedding memory boxes.

Whatever the occasion and personalised text you choose, your accurately letter punched plaque will show through a window in the lid and will be neatly finished inside the box.


You can choose from either our exclusive white grain effect, an antique cream shabby paint finish or natural waxed wood as shown in the photos. Also, there’s a medium (still big) or large sized (extra large) box choice on ordering. The insides of all these large christening boxes match the exterior.

Personalise your keepsake box with 1, 2 or 3 lines, up to 26 characters including spaces per line. We automatically centre the lines left to right, so there’s no need for you space them yourself. Also, whether you choose one line or 3, your personalisation text will be centred by eye vertically in window.

Your text can include A-Z, 0-9 and simple punctuation. But, please do note we cannot do # () * emoticons, graphics or special symbols. We don’t have the punches for those!


These are robust British made boxes.

  • Sides constructed from robust 9mm birch faced ply
  • The base and hinged lid is 4mm ply
  • Two hinges and metal catch on each box

The personalised plaque is made from aluminium with a ‘brushed’ finish. It is not mirror finish ‘perfect’. Our aim is to achieve a quality (but not flawless) utilitarian appearance that complements the ‘aged’ wooden box. Both box and plaque may feature little dents and imperfections.

This personalisation is letter punch stamped (not engraved) and has a strong handmade character rather than being spidery or print perfect.

By buying this christening keepsake box, you’re choosing a gift produced in England – from start to finish!

These boxes are hand-shaped, finished and fitted out in our Amersham workshop. Each box receives individual attention from start to finish. We intentionally work to make your baby box look older than it is, to create that charming junk-shop-find character.

The wood’s colour, patterns and grain will differ from batch to batch, giving each box its own distinct appeal. They may all look at little different but, rest assured, we’d never send out an ugly box.

  • Weight of medium box approx. 1 kg
  • Weight of the large box approx. 1.4 kg
