Giving a baby keepsake box to an expecting mother is a great way to help her document monumental events in her new baby's life. Keepsake boxes come in a variety of styles and can be made from an number of materials (wood, porcelain, silver, cardboard, etc.). You can also buy boxes that are designed to hold specific mementos (first curl, first tooth, birth certificate, etc.).
If you can't decide on exactly what you would like the box to hold, buy the new mommy a multi-purposed box with many compartments to hold multiple items. A great pick is the "Thank Heaven For Little Girls Keepsake Chest" or the "Thank Heaven For Boys Keepsake Chest." It has a place for a photo of the child on the cover as well as drawers designed to hold items such as: first spoon, first lock of hair, certificate of birth, etc. It is also sizeable enough to hold the baby's shoes and a matching memory book. The whole thing is topped off with lovely ribbon accents.
