The first year or so of a baby girl’s life is one where tremendous change takes place in a very short space of time. But looking after a child is a full-time, demanding job, and so the time tends to fly by for the parents, who are usually so busy with the business of looking after their child that they don’t have time to think about anything else. Before long clothes, toys and other precious keepsakes are discarded – some are unwittingly thrown away, never again to be recovered.
Clearly, these items confer enormous sentimental value – after all, you only get one first pair of shoes, one first baby grow and one first hairbrush. In order for the baby girl in question to be able to look back on her childhood fondly, she’ll need somewhere safe to store all of these items.
If you’re looking for somewhere to store keepsakes of this glorious – yet hectic – period, then there are few better places than in a specially-designed tin. It’s perfect for a gift at a Christening or baby shower – it’s slightly rectangular, at thirty-one centimetres wide by twenty-two centimetres long. This provides ample room for all of the items that will hold sentimental value long into the future – from first birthday and christening cards to first outfits and pairs of shoes.
This tin comes courtesy of Peel and Sardine, a Leicester-based designer with a reputation for charming gifts of this sort. It comes decorated in pastel shades of pink and blue, with the unmistakable Peel and Sardine pink rabbit displayed prominently on the front.
