1st Birthday Gift Keepsake Letters

This box of letters would be perfect as a 1st birthday keepsake, helping to capture the magic of a very special birthday celebration.

There are five origami folded letters inside the box, and each letter features a question that will help the parent to describe their little one's first birthday.

Open the letters and write about the day: Who shared the day with you? What was the most magical moment? Was there a special cake? You could even include photos and small mementoes from the day.

Why not keep this memory box safe until your little one is older, and then enjoy reading the letters together. Every child would love to find out about their fabulous first birthday, through the eyes of their mum or dad.

The top of the box is personalised with a name, so that it reads 'Letters for {child's name} on his / her 1st Birthday'. The name can be printed in green, purple, deep pink or yellow. You can choose to include a small icon, either a heart or a star, if you wish. The icon will appear in the same colour as the name. Please note that a maximum of 12 characters can be used in the name.

The questions on the letters are:

Who did I share the day with?

What was the most special moment of the day?

How did Mummy and Daddy feel?

Did I have a special cake?

What gifts did I receive?

Each letter is folded from a single sheet of paper which is slightly smaller than A5.

There is also an instruction sheet to help you fold back up the letters after you have written them, although it is very easy!

If the box is difficult to open, please gently slide a ruler (or something similar) under the lid (from the side) and slowly ease the lid open.

Made from:

Inside the cardboard box, the five letters are made from thick white paper and they are tied with silvery-grey organza ribbon.


The box measures 10.2 x 7.8 x 2.8cm and each letter is approximately 10.1 x 7.4cm when folded up. When opened, each letter is just slightly smaller than A5.
