Are you familiar with the concept of a keepsake trunk? Petite Keep is known for its beautiful, fabric lined trunks, which are commonly used to carefully store bridal and baby mementos but can be used for so many other purposes, too. This week, we’re excited to announce that we partnered with Petite Keep on their heirloom-quality trunks, lining them in 3 of our most beloved prints: Serena Sea Salt, Loomi Pink, and Emma Lavender. Whether you’re shopping for a loved one or are just looking to treat yourself, you won’t want to miss out on purchasing one of these special trunks, which you’ll truly be able to cherish for a lifetime.

Below, we’re sharing some of our favorite ways to make use of Petite Keep trunks; the options are truly endless! No matter which route you take, you’ll have comfort knowing that all of your meaningful items from a specific occasion or time period are accessible yet safely stored away.


Bridal Memory Storage

Place special wedding day accessories, notes, Polaroids, and so much more (invitations, place cards, dried flowers, etc.) inside of a storage box for safekeeping. You put so much time and energy into planning your wedding and focusing on every little detail, so don’t let your paper goods and decorations fall to the wayside. You can also fill the box with fun accessories from your bachelorette or shower—your novelty sash, ribbon bouquet, and even that bride-themed fanny pack will always remind you of this special period in your life.


Baby Memory Storage

You’ll of course want to keep all of the precious cards and letters you received when your little one was born (and even prior to his or her arrival!) as well as tiny onesies from the early days, printed photos, and much more. A Petite Keep trunk is the perfect way to hold onto some of those memories you’ll never want to forget as your child ages. Plus, when your little one grows up, he or she will appreciate having this “archive” of sorts on hand to look through!

Love Letter Storage

Everyone has special love letters (whether they’re from a spouse, parent, sibling, grandparent, or BFF) that they’ll want to hold onto forever, and what better way to keep all of these special cards organized than placing them inside of a spacious trunk (that leaves plenty of room for more notes to be added over time).

School Memory Storage

Perhaps you or your adult child has spent some time going through important papers from kindergarten through college and narrowed down a more limited stack of specific report cards, essays, and drawings to hold onto. Why not place all of these items in one durable box rather than stuffing them in cardboard bins in the closet? Petite Keep boxes are great for housing school memories of all kinds. You never know when you’re going to want to look back on that fifth grade creative writing project!

Needlepoint Supplies Storage

If you love to needlepoint, you’ve likely accumulated a wide collection of canvases, threads, and the like. Keep all of your project supplies nice and organized in a little trunk that features an interior pattern that speaks to you.
