Memory Keeping with Gigi Brooks

Childhood is fleeting. Although parents often think they'll never forget any of the magical moments that form the fabric of their children's lives, it doesn't take long for memories to begin to feel fuzzy and fade. The best way to ensure you'll remember all of your child's most important milestones is to make a concerted effort to document them for future posterity.

Memory keeping can take many forms, from moments you capture with your camera to scrapbooks, diaries and journals. If you're serious about maintaining a beautiful archive for future generations to look back on, combining a variety of different methods is probably the best approach. In the process, you'll quickly create tangible keepsakes that possess immeasurable value.

Our Keepsake Baby Journal is a prime example. An ideal gift for new or expectant parents, this unique heirloom book features original illustrations and sweet poems throughout. Crafted from archival quality materials, the book is printed on custom-made paper and hard-bound using the oldest and most durable technique available today.

Covered with linen book cloth and gold foil stamped, a simple dust jacket with a beautiful colour illustration has been added to protect the book from wear and tear. It's then wrapped in acid-free tissue paper to allow for long term storage. To ensure the preservation of your precious memories, a package of 240 acid-free photo corners and a black gel pen with archival quality ink are included in the presentation gift box which is also finished with a lovely grosgrain ribbon and letter-pressed card.

The moment a baby arrives, there are numerous events that give cause for celebration. From their first word to their very first steps, growing up is full of red letter days. It's important to commemorate these small moments of joy and treasure things that will one day bring memories flooding back. A box for baby's first curl is perfect, as is somewhere special to store their first tooth. We even offer a sterling silver jewel case designed to hold the champagne cork from a momentous celebratory occasion.

One of the most elegant and unique gems we have ever come across is our Ostrich Egg. The premise behind this magical piece is simple. The recipient scribes wishes and notes to their loved ones and place them inside the hollowed out egg through the top. One day in the future, the egg is opened to reveal the notes of love and memories from the past, to be read by the ones the sentiments are meant for.

Understated and elegant, the Ostrich Egg is composed of the most luxurious materials, including a sterling silver base, cap and medallion. There's also an option to further personalise the piece with a hand engraved word, name or phrase of your choice. It makes an exceptional gift for a new baby, baby shower, birthday, Christening, Bar Mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah, wedding or any other symbolic occasion.

While modern technology might make it easy to document day to day life with your little ones, we believe it's keepsakes like these that will truly stand the test of time.
