  1. Absolutely gorgeous !

  2. The journal is gorgeous in real life, far exceeded my expectations. I bought them for my girlfriends for Christmas, my 80 year old Mum and 70 year old Aunt, and of course myself. Only a few pages in and I have already found out so much about my Mum that I didnt know. It’s so important to ask questions now and to answers the questions yourself too. You are never too young to start.

  3. The book is stunning quality. The content is equally as amazing. I browsed for hours trying to find a Time Capsule journal for my grandparents but they were all so impersonal or cheesy. This one is so thoughtfully curated, it’s the perfect option. I can’t wait to cherish it for years to come after it’s filled out.

  4. Received the Keepsake Case in exchange for an honest review. I work in estates, and I would purchase 100 of these for my entire clientele. People underestimate the need of storing not just important documents, but also sentimental items and keepsakes. These are the items families easily lose after someone passes. The top tray also gives this box a “chic” look and allows it to be functional for daily use, which I think is genius. These things shouldn’t be stored in a closet or under a bed, and designing this box like a piece of decor + with the clever storage is the perfect mix. I haven’t seen any keepsake box come close to this type of design or has this amount of thoughtful storage.

  5. I got the Keepsake Case as a PR gift. In full honesty, this is the most brilliant and useful item I have received all year – I am shocked something like this doesn’t exist yet. You can tell the detail Chelsey put into making this keepsake box: You can use it just for sentimental items or purely use it for important documents. New mom? You can put all your baby keepsakes in here. The two trays are great because they are removable and you can swap how you layer them. My favorite detail is the top tray because it allows the box to be functional every single day which I absolutely love. 100/10.
