This Is Your Year

Chinese lore holds that babies born during the year of the monkey (02/08/2016 - 01/27/2017) will be witty, curious, and clever. Mark the development of each of these traits for your newest arrival with this keepsake box. Designed by Kerri Lee, this felt-lined wooden box comes complete with a tiny envelope for holding a lock of hair, along 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 Long Eddy, New York.

“I think art and engineering are very intertwined. I have always been interested in design and unique, beautiful things.”

Engineer and designer Kerri Lee-Sensiba's earliest pieces started at her kitchen table, where she would often work through the night. Her designs were born from her desire to create gifts for children with innovative features, artful details, and simple beauty. She began exhibiting at trade shows, and her products quickly garnered national attention and acclaim. Today, Kerri and her team craft their sustainably made designs out of a century-old building in a small New York town along the Delaware River.

Sent as baby gifts for my nieces three years apart. Love that it is the same design for both (and still available). My sister uses it to hold keepsakes such as an ultrasound photo, their hospital ID bracelet and other keepsakes. We can't remember what the characteristics of the year 2012 was (the first box I bought), so it would be nice if they were printed inside the box. That way the parents could collect
Items when their child demonstrated those characteristics.

Edited to add, I guess that's why it won't stay closed, it's not intended to be an actual clasp rather than just more of a pull tab. Either way, I'm just disappointed....Read complete review

Edited to add, I guess that's why it won't stay closed, it's not intended to be an actual clasp rather than just more of a pull tab. Either way, I'm just disappointed. The top picture plastic like piece is wobbly, and now that I look closely at it, the box isn't exactly square. Such an awful gift but I couldn't tell them that. The thought behind it was sweet
