Beautiful Boxes for a Special Occasion

Updated on October 30, 2014

Choose a Keepsake Box for a Special Gift

I love receiving a special gift in a special container. It is so much fun to open a package and find a beautiful box. The box is very special by itself, but then you open it up and it has another special surprise. This lens will feature a number of beautiful keepsake boxes that would make a great gift all by themselves. If you combine them with a special trinket...you will have a wonderful gift for that someone special .

If you are looking for something different for wrapping your special gift, this lens will also give you some unique suggestions. How about a cute Teddy Bear that says Love is Forever, or perhaps a mug that says I Love You ?

Keepsake Boxes make Wonderful Birthday Gifts

What a better way to let someone know they are special than putting their gift in a special box! These boxes are great gifts by themselves or as a container for a special trinket.

Special Boxes for Special Gifts

Here are some great ideas for gift boxes. Some are expensive by themselves and other are quite inexpensive. Either way, they make a wonderful container for that special Gift trinket.

To Wrap or Not to Wrap

I like my gift wrapped in a special container. It shows the giver put some thought into making the gift special for me. I also enjoy finding just the right containers to wrap the trinkets I give to my loved ones.

Do you want your gift wrapped in something special?

Do you like to use special containers?

      Thinking about the wrapping means more thinking about the person, and presentation of the gift... I don't want to see my gifts wrapt in a newspaper.... LOL

      I think a gift should be wrapped to be made special, no matter what it is.

      I love it all. Sometimes I use gift bags but I love cute shaped gift boxes. I love taking the gift itself and turning it into the packaging like a diaper cake or towel lollips etc..As for valentine hmm..wonder what I could come up with?

      I do love special gift containers. My favorite that you have listed is the Fall Chrysanthemum Keepsake Box. What a great gift box.

      You've reminded me of this keepsake like box that is round -- I don't think it was meant to be a keeper, but I have it sitting on a shelf in my home office. These make such great gifts, yes?

      Boxes must have something magical about them because they are so hard to let go of. And if it is made for you by someone you love, they are even more magical. Our dad made each of his daughters a keepsake box. Haven't thought of it in years (mine burned in a fire) but must ask my husband to make one for our daughter.
