Another version of our best-selling engraved carving keepsake box in whisky wax finish, so loved by our customers.

Big enough for lots of memories, this personalised box has a simple, old-fashioned charm. It is perfect as a gift from a mother’s young children to her on Mother’s Day or her birthday. It also makes a great gift for new mum’s that will be enjoyed longer than flowers!

Don’t forget: you can change the engraved text “Mummy’s” to any name you wish, making this a very versatile gift. It’s suitable for anyone with a penchant for collecting memories or mementos.

And, the size and sturdiness of this wooden keepsake box means it can be part of their life for many decades to come.

We shape, decorate, personalise and (if required) line these boxes by hand in our workshops in Amersham, Bucks.


The curly lozenge with the word “Keepsakes” inside are part of the design. We do not change this. We have many other keepsake box designs to choose from, if this doesn’t match your needs.

“Mummy’s”  is the default engraved carving for the line above the central Keepsakes lozenge. You can specify an alternative term like “Mum’s”, “Mam’s” or “Mother’s”  or write a completely different top line, if you prefer. It can be up to 20 characters long, including spaces and any punctuation.

You choose the engraved personalisation text under the Keepsakes lozenge. Customer’s usually enter a personal dedication that includes children’s names, such as “Love Olivia & George”. This line can be up to 20 characters long; you may wish to use the ‘&’ character to save letters.

Your text can include letters, numbers and simple punctuation. Please note we are not able to engrave emoticons, graphics or special symbols.


This wood keepsake box is currently constructed from European-sourced poplar ply due to the trade embargo on Russia manufactured wooden materials.

It has a hinged lid and brass-coloured clasp.

  • External dimensions: 34.5cm x 20cm x 10cm
  • Approx. internal size: 32.5cm x 18cm x 9cm

We hand shape these boxes after construction to round off the hard edges and create the illusion of a life well lived. Each will have imperfections in the wood that help create this well used appeal.

The box is adeptly decorated by hand and this will be reflected in the character of the box. The wood grain will differ from box to box and the uptake of the coloured wax may also vary, changing the finished shade slightly. In short, your mummy’s keepsake box will be one of a kind!

The carved lettering is shown “blackened” with ink in the photographs. This process is done by hand after the engraved carving is finished. Alternatively, you can specify lettering whitened with acrylic paint. You can see examples of this effect on other keepsake boxes in our range.  Both processes make your personalisation really stand out.


The standard finish inside this keepsake box is a hard whiskey coloured wax, all over. But, you can inject colour and luxury by upgrading to a part-lined interior. This adds an impactful fabric covered cushioned pad into the base of the box.

Simple designs work best on the lids of these boxes, but you needn’t be so limited in what you can say. Choose the underside engraving upgrade to add an extra sentimental missive or motto to the bottom of this keepsake box.


Just complete the two personalisation fields prior to check out. Please check the accuracy of your input carefully, because we are not able to spell check or proof read your input before engraving your box.

Please ensure the correct personalisation is submitted with your order, as it is unlikely that we will be able to accept amendments once your order has been placed.
