Memories Box Gift Idea

Are you looking for a slightly more unusual, thoughtful gift for someone? Create a happy box with your favourite memories together that do not fit a photo album. Where to start? 

This box caught my eye sometime at the beginning of the February but I decided to wait before rushing into buying it. I really like the font design and then it came to me; I will make a box with memories for my mum as a part of her  Mother's Day gift.

 
Waiting paid off as I bought it on sale after Valentines for less than half of the original price from my local Sainsbury, bargain! Keep your eyes peeled and you might be able to find something for a very attractive price. If you want you can try to make your own one.  
T memory box came with pretty paper that is just perfect to write messages, wishes, quotes and important dates on. If you want to try to write your own poem, who knows you might discover your secret skill. I am pretty sure my poem writing skill is hidden so well that I should stick to happy quotes.
Square Snaps offers various styles*
Did you know that you can print out your Instagram photos in the form of Polaroids from Square Snaps
Vintage Prints From Polabora*
Or try retro style prints from Polabora. 20 prints will cost you £7.29 or 50 for £14.59. 
Inspiration from Polargram
Polargram allows you also to create magnets with your favourite photo memories.
I would be interested in using one of the services above. However, if you would like to do everything on your own Joe (here) shares how to print your photo as polaroid at home. 
What would you include in your memory box?

  4. Oh wow this is so sweet, those polaroids look so good as well! I have a polaroid camera but I never use it, I'd much prefer to print my instagram photos to be honest!
