A vintage style keepsake box personalised for Mummy to house all her trinkets and mementos about the greatest gift of all: her beloved children.

Every mother blooms with pride as her kids grow and flourish. And, we all want to keep souvenirs to look back upon in years to come. The trouble is, her personal archives are overflowing with little reminders. And, the sides keep falling out of those make-do cardboard boxes, spilling the precious contents under her bed.

That’s why there cannot be a more fitting gift for a doting and amazing mother than this quaint case for storing treasures of motherhood. It’s time to upgrade her memory storage capabilities, with a strong, large wooden keepsake box, that’s 100% made in England and shaped and finished by hand.

Not only a great Mother’s Day gift, these keepsake holders also make brilliant gifts for mum on:-

  • Her reaching a major milestone age (like a retrospective on her life so far)
  • When a child flies the nest and (finally) moves out
  • Is she about to become a grandmother? Then she’ll need extra storage for a new generation of artifacts
  • Has favourite son or daughter recently graduated? Then she’ll probably want to keep graduation photos and memorable school moments

Of course, the most versatile thing about these custom keepsake containers is that they’re made to order, especially for you. That means you can exchange “Mummy” for “Mum”, “Mumma”, “Mom” or any name of any person you want to give this solid wood memory box. You can even add a couple’s name, if you like. We’ve produced these personalised wooden keepsake boxes for lots of people and occasions:

  • For folks embarking on globe-trotting adventures
  • To store cherished memories of a sadly departed dog
  • On a best-friend’s 18th or 21st birthday
  • On a wife’s 5th wedding anniversary because it’s wood

The only unchangeable text is “Favourite Memories” and everyone has some of those!


The words “Favourite Memories” are part of the design. You can personalise your engraved memory chest by changing the text above (with an alternative to Mummy’s) and underneath. Many customers add the names of the children, or the friends giving the box or a personal message of up to 20 characters (like “fifty & fabulous”).

Your text can include Aa-Zz, 0-9 and regular punctuation. Please be aware that we cannot engrave emoticons, graphics or special symbols. Similarly, keystroke emojis (like <3) often look confusing/ unconvincing with the fonts used on this keepsake box.


These personalised wooden keepsake boxes are made from high quality ply wood with a hinged lid and brass clasp.

External dimensions:

  • Height: 10cm
  • Width: 34.5cm
  • Depth: 20cm

This memory box undergoes artistic hand aging, ensuring it acquires charming imperfections like marks, scratches and patches, resulting in its distinct, vintage appearance. Through this process, the hand shaping and waxing and then personalisation, each box becomes a one-of-a-kind creation.

Additionally, the colour, pattern and grain of the box are unique to each batch of wood and are influenced by the specific hand-finishing techniques used.

The engraved carved lettering receives our exclusive “whitening” process, which carefully enhances each character by hand, making it more prominent against the wood.

This box is sealed inside and out with non-toxic hand-applied “hard” wax.


Make you Mum’s box extra special by having us add a fabric covered cushioned pad in the base to protect her keepsakes. You can even choose her favourite colour.


It’s easy! Decide how you want to customise your box and input the details as you order.

Don’t forget to take extra special care when entering you personalisation text – especially on your phone with that pesky auto-correct! We engrave the carving text you supply as supplied, without spell checking it or proof reading. What you input is echoed back in your order confirmation email, so do double check and get in touch immediately if you’ve made a mistake.

To ensure prompt despatch and delivery, we leap on orders pretty sharpish. We aim to despatch within one working day. After that, expect delivery within 3 days if you use our standard service (though this is not guaranteed by Royal Mail).
