Finding a place of honor for these treasures is important to keep them from getting misplaced or mixed up. The stylish solution is a keepsake box that you can take out for a trip down memory lane whenever the mood strikes. Here are a few standouts where the box is as unique as the items you’re preserving. Bonus: A keepsake box also makes the perfect gift for the tough-to-shop-for sentimentalists in your life.

Pachelbel’s best-known (and tear-jerking) work is the soundtrack of this pick. Cottage Garden
This lush, rosewood-finished keepsake box does more than store precious memories—it inspires with artwork featuring uplifting proverbs and brings joy by playing music (“Canon in D”) when opened. The music-playing mechanism is visible through the glass on the inside of the box while the inside cavity is lined with black velvet to perfectly protect any type of treasured item. And if you enjoy mixing up the aesthetics in your home, the box top doubles as a photo frame. Just replace the artwork with a picture that better represents the sentiments being stored inside.
