11 Must-Haves For Your Baby’s Keepsake Box

By Rebecca from Fosterhood |

I’m obsessed with creating my daughters’ keepsake boxes right now. I’ve collected meaningful items from their 1st year of life such as favorite onesies, adored small toys and souvenir trinkets from our vacation to Santa Fe this summer. Eventually, the girls’ baby bracelets and a few photographs will be added.

To make sure I wasn’t leaving out any important items, I went to Etsy and did a search for “baby keepsake.” Sure enough, I quickly found some additional must-haves for a baby’s keepsake box (and inspiration for another post: 13 Bizarre Baby Keepsakes). Here they are:

6. Booties and Baby Shoes, Of Course

If you're anything like me, the bigger issue is WHICH booties and baby shoes do I include? I love these deep purple ones found on Etsy for only $10.00.
