Creative Ways to Use Memory Boxes for Organising and Decorating Your Home

Written by: Make Memento


Memory boxes are a fantastic way to keep treasured items organised and tidy in your home while also adding a touch of personal style. Whether you're looking for a unique way to display mementos from your travels, sentimental items from your childhood, or simply looking for a fun new way to spruce up your living space, memory boxes can be an excellent solution. 

At Make Memento, we believe that memory boxes are a perfect way to express your personality and showcase your unique memories. Our personalised memory boxes are crafted with love and care to ensure that they are not only functional but also beautiful and stylish. In this post, we'll explore some creative ways to use memory boxes for organising and decorating your home.

What is a Memory Box?

A memory box is a container that you can use to store and display items that hold sentimental value. These boxes can be used to store keepsakes such as photos, ticket stubs, cards, and other mementos that you want to keep safe and organised.

What can you Put in a Memory Box?

Memory boxes are versatile and can be used to store items from all areas of your life. Whether it's a travel memory box, a baby memory box, or a wedding memory box, the items you put inside can vary. 

Here are some ideas for what to include: 

Travel Memory Box:  Maps of your favourite destinations Plane, train or bus tickets Postcards and souvenirs Photos of your travels 

Baby Memory Box: Hospital bracelets and first outfits Ultrasound photos Hand and footprints First toys and blankets 

Wedding Memory Box:  Invitation and save the date cards Wedding vows Photos and videos Pressed flowers from the bouquet

Where to Keep a Memory Box?

The location of your memory box will depend on how often you want to access the items inside. If it's something you'll be opening regularly, consider keeping it on a bookshelf or a coffee table. If it's something you only need to access occasionally, a closet or storage area might be better.

Organising a Memory Box

When it comes to organising your memory box, there are a few things to keep in mind:

First, try to group items together by theme or event. This will make it easier to find things later. 

Second, consider using dividers or smaller boxes inside the memory box to keep everything in its place. 

Finally, label each item or group of items with a date or description so you can easily identify them later.

Benefits of Memory Boxes

Memory boxes have numerous benefits beyond just keeping items organised. By displaying sentimental items around your home, you'll be reminded of happy memories and special moments. 

Memory boxes also make great conversation starters and can be a unique way to showcase your personality and style. In the words of interior designer, Nate Berkus, "Your home should tell the story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love." Memory boxes are an excellent way to do just that.
