About Us

Welcome from Read’s Creations. It is a pleasure to introduce you to our wide range of Wooden Memory and Keepsake Boxes.  We are suppliers of Decorative Baby Keepsake Boxes, Photo on a Wooden Keepsake Box, Solid Oak or Pine Wooden Keepsake Boxes and Personalised Wooden Keepsake Boxes with options for a name and message.

The boxes have become firm favourites locally and at craft fairs over the past two years and we are now offering them to the world wide web.  It is taking some time to finalise the design and reliability of the websites although we are just about ready to launch the various options.  The phone has already begun ringing and customers are buying directly online so all appears to be OK.

The solid Oak and Pine Boxes and Girls Magenta Pink ‘Secrets’ Keepsake Boxes are made locally in the UK and the other boxes are supplied to us already painted just waiting for us to design and add the personalisation, photo images and illustrations.  We are planning to offer a ‘Design you Own Keepsake Box’ online option in the near future with a variety of local artists illustrations for you to choose from. In the meantime if you would like a customised box, or you have a special image you would like on your box, please contact us and we will see what we can do to supply you.

Adding the photograph to the lid of the box is, currently, an expensive process and we are always looking at ways to reduce this cost.  If or when we do we will pass these savings on to our customers.

Keep your Wooden Memory or Keepsake Box as a Family Heirloom

Don’t you think it would be interesting if your ancestors had kept a memory or keepsake box full of family history and memorabilia about their lives over the years,  photographs, newspaper cuttings,  diaries, school reports  or baby’s first rattle.  Stored Birth certificates or Marriage Licences would mean you could build your family tree so much easier.  Luckily there are more and more people storing these valuable documents and general  family history memorabilia to pass on to their children as a family heirloom and a memory or keepsake box keeps everything very  secure and all in one place, much better  long term than that cardboard box under the bed.

In this digital age we live in how easy it would be to record our voices on a CD or USB Pen and store it away to be played years in the future.  To hear your Great Great Grandfather talking about his life, his work, his family and anything else of interest would be so fascinating, giving the family an insight as to how life was all those years ago.

Life moves at a fast pace, children grow up so quickly, we move house and often lose those small items that we meant to keep safe.  The identity tag from the hospital where your children were born, those first bootees, the first tooth left for the ‘fairy’ or that time when your first born was entered into the handsome baby competition and his picture was in the local paper.  How lovely if all these were stored in one place, kept safe in a memory or keepsake box preferably made of wood to stand the test of time.

If you have ever lost a loved one you will know how important it is to keep those precious memories safe in a memory box and preferably one made of real wood.   Although many memories are stored in your head, others can be stored to reminisce and bring a smile to your face.

Have you got all your achievement certificates or school reports from your younger days.  Are they in the attic or have they long gone.  What a shame they are lost, your daughter or son would love to see how ‘perfect’ you were during your school years!

So don’t throw out or lose those precious memories or A4 documents relating to your family history, store them, keep them safe in a wooden memory or keepsake box and keep it as a family heirloom for all to enjoy in the future.

My daughter was looking for a large wooden baby keepsake box when her son was born and ended up buying a cardboard box.  He is three now and it has fallen apart.  Now there is a wider choice and a wooden box will last you for years to come.   With the option of real solid wood oak or pine natural wood finish or painted decorative memory boxes, with or without personalised names and messages, or boxes with a photo of your choice on the box with a name, you are spoilt for choice.

A wide variety of A4 size wooden baby and adult keepsake and memory boxes for Maternity Leaving Presents, Christening Gifts, Young Girls Gift,  Boys Presents.  Traditional presents for an anniversary, Christmas, birthdays, there is something for everyone and the option to personalise each one as you wish.
