Photo albums are a great way for your child to see their first hugs and holidays, and you could even pop in their birthday cards alongside the appropriate photographs. Similarly, keep a scrapbook of their achievements, like a collection of their baby swimming certificates and, eventually, school reports.
As a natural material, wood offers a warm and classic feel. Ranging in colour from light to dark depending on the finish used, wood frames give you plenty of options for complementing and contrasting your images. Photos with warmer tones, like red, brown and orange, look best with darker frames made of woods like mahogany and walnut. Cooler tones in an image, such as blues, greens and lavender, pair better with lighter wood frames made of oak, ash and pine.
There are plenty of other things you can include in a keepsake box that will be fun to look back on in years to come. Many include a copy of the newspaper from the day a baby was born, so they can read about the world they were born into. Others include a copy of the top 40 singles chart, so they can laugh at the cheesy music.
