This is one of our most popular personalised keepsake boxes and it’s not hard to see why. The mechanically carved design brings instant nostalgia to any occasion with it’s 1950s logotype style. We design each of those individually, balancing the text and the swoosh underneath.

You can have just the person’s name or add a missive underneath as well. I am sure you can think of the right words!

This is really great sized keepsake storage. It is large enough to fit in all his or her birthday memories, cards and trinkets to be enjoyed for years to come.

When do customers most choose this particular memory box?

  • For girls or boys “coming of age” at 18 or 21 – especially one of your own children or grandchildren
  • As a birthday gift for a best friend, so they can collect concert tickets, letters, or tokens of your friendship
  • To store tiny socks, photos, medical wristbands and other cherished keepsakes from the arrival of a baby
  • Many are bought for a sibling to remember growing up together in the crazy 1980s or 1990s
  • We’ve produced several in tribute to a furry friend after they’ve passed away

But, remember, you can set the tone and mark any occasion by what you have us carve on to your box. And, every box is certain to become as treasured keepsake in it’s own right. Who knows – may it’ll even become a family heirloom?


Personalise your handmade treasure chest with a first name (up to 12 characters). You can then have a line of text underneath (up to 20 characters including spaces long)

Your text can include A-Z + a-z, 0-9 and every day punctuation. Please note we cannot do emoticons, graphics or special symbols. Also, be advised that keyboard emojis – eg 😉 – don’t work very well with the fonts used on this personalised box. Often, they just look a bit strange – more like a typo than what they are meant to represent.


This robust wooden box is made from premium quality ply wood and has a hinged lid and brass coloured clasp. It’s shaped and decorated by hand in our Amersham workshop.

External dimensions: 34.5cm x 20cm x 10cm

The wood of this keepsake box is cunningly aged by hand and so will show imperfections; splits, holes, scratches, patches and marks. They give it that well worn look that’s so adorable and make each box utterly unique!

The v-carved gift personalisation text will be meticulously “whitened” to really show up on your personalised box. It looks spectacular!

The exact colour and patina/ grain of box will vary, depending on the batch of wood and differences in the hand finishing in our UK workshop.


Upgrade the inside of your customised keepsake storage with the addition of a snazzy fabric lining in the base of the box. This provides a soft cushion to protect precious things and looks fabulous.

Add a footnote engraved onto the underside of the box, perhaps reminding the recipient who gave it and why?
