What Are Memory Boxes?
Although it is unknown exactly how this tradition of boxes began, history shows that people have been utilizing small memorial chests for centuries.
Perhaps the most common and oldest version of a memory box is not necessarily associated with death but with life. Many people have boxes that hold mementos of a baby’s early years. These boxes may contain the child’s first pair of shoes, photos, and articles of clothing. In later years both the parents and the adult children can enjoy the contents together.
Throughout the years, some people have gone so far as to maintain entire rooms or trinkets exactly as the deceased left them. A memory box holds the items that were dear to your loved one, or the trinkets you most associate with their memory. During the Victorian era, people were very attached to brooches, lockets, and locks of hair. Today, it is popular to create a memory keepsake box filled with small items treasured by the deceased.
While it is the items you put inside your memory box that makes it special, you can select a box that holds a personality trait of your loved one. Each box in our selection holds character such as images of animals and birds, religious themes, and patriotic themes such as flags. You can also personalize a box with a photo and engraving.
How to Use Your Memorial Keepsake Box
Any memento that holds a special meaning or memory of your loved one can be kept in the box. Most people choose to store favorite photographs, jewelry, clothing, newspaper clippings, notes or other kinds of keepsakes. Some memory boxes have been created with a compartment to hold a regular adult sized rectangular urn for cremation ashes with a tray sitting above for the deceased’s favorite jewelry and other prized items.
