Celebrating Mothers: Win a personalised keepsake box!

Making memories is what life is all about and, in this day and age, technology has made it even easier for us to capture so many special moments. And although I have thousands of photographs stored away on my laptop and phone, hours of video footage and treasured emails floating around somewhere in cyberspace, I still prefer to have a keepsake that I can physically hold in my hands. Nothing beats a glossy photo album that you can physically flick through or a box of treasures to sift through from time to time, remembering a moment that really mattered.

For that reason, I was over the moon when the The Personalised Gift Boutique got in touch and asked me to review an item from their Mothers Day gift range, especially when I saw the extensive selection of products. I instantly knew which gift I would love to receive, this beautiful keepsake box to store my most cherished memories.

The keepsake box is made from a beautiful vintage style oak, with space for four 6×4 photos. The lid can be engraved with up to twenty characters, giving it that extra special personal feel for someone you love.

At 19cm squared and 15cm high, the box is large enough to store the things that mean the most to you. Instead of boxing away those scan photos, baby’s first wrist band or a tiny pair of bootees, this is the perfect place to keep them safe whilst showcasing your favourite photos in your home.

Even better, this box comes with free UK delivery although to guarantee delivery in time for Mothers Day, simply enter express delivery at the check-out before Wednesday 22nd March.

The lovely people at The Personalised Gift Boutique have offered my readers the chance to win one of these gorgeous boxes, RRP £39.99, simply by entering via the link below.

The winner will be notified via email on the 23rd April. Usual terms and conditions apply.

Good luck!!

    Oh what a lovely box – I particularly love that you can put your own photos in it to show off your precious children and then keep all those little keepsakes inside. What a brilliant ideas. Fingers crossed for the competition. I’d love to keep my baby scan photos in here.

They are my most treasured keepsakes as I can’t wear them ( my granny had very small fingers, almost child size) I have to try and keep them somewhere safe, this would be a fab place to keep them along with the bits I’ve saved along the years of my 2 girlies.

    Apart from all my children’s firsts I’d have to say my most cherished keepsake is a teddy bear my nan got for me when she moved from Essex to Wales when I was 8, she got an identical one and every time we visited she would spray my bear with her perfume and I’d spray hers with my mums as I was too young for perfume! There was many nights I cried and hugged him to sleep as I missed her x

    I have some love letters that were written to me by my first boyfriend back in the 70’s. I have kept them all very safe. I would love to pass them on to a grandchild one day.
