Honor Your Little One

Chinese lore holds that babies born during the Year of the Snake (February 10th 2013–January 30th 2014) will be wise, charming, determined, diligent, highly creative, and loyal friends. Mark the development of each of these traits in your special little snake with this Year of the Snake keepsake box. Designed by Kerri Lee, this felt-lined, wooden box comes complete with a special image of an adorable baby snake and a tiny envelope for holding a lock of hair, with space to write your baby's name and birth date. The box is the perfect place to keep the baby's first pair of booties, a favorite toy, or pictures from their first year. Handmade in New York.

Disappointing considering the price

Pros

  • Strong Construction

      Comments about 2013 BIRTH YEAR BOX:

      It's really cute, but considering the price, I would have expected a much higher quality item. For example, the snake veneer on the lid is quite crooked, and the felt inside was cut much too small to actually cover the bottom of the box.

          I bought this box for my niece and nephew when they were born. I had a keepsake box as a kid and loved putting my little treasures inside. I love that these boxes have a cute depiction marking the month and year they were born; the animals a very kid-friendly. I also love that it's not too fussy looking! I'll definitely continue to get this as a gift for the babies in my life!

            This is the second one I purchase. The first one was for my other grandchild 2 years ago, and this one is for his brother. My daughter requested so that they both have one.

              I got this box for my newborn son. It's good to keep small things like lock of his hair or first tooth and a favorite small toy from childhood.

                Bought two of these boxes for a friend who had twin boys in the year of the snake (2013). They are well-constructed and large enough to hold photos and other keepsakes.

                      bought this for my sister-in-law's baby shower. i think it's super cute and a little bit more reflective type of gift to give. it's something the baby can have forever.
