Wooden Keepsake Box for Baby Gift by Paloma's Nest
We all love to shower new babies with clothing and toys, but the truth is, an infant can only play so much or wear so many outfits! How about giving a gift that will last forever- one that will mark the date of the child's birth, and hold precious memories as they grow up?
Our wooden keepsake box is handcrafted with a personalized porcelain tile that features the name and/or birth date of the child. It's perfect for holding the first lock of hair, the hospital ID bracelet, a few special photos, and even their first lost baby tooth.
Parents will appreciate the simple and timeless design of a box that they will want to proudly display in the home.

Be sure to check out this beautiful family-run company and their website at Fabelab, and on Instagram at @fabelabdk!
