For Pete’s sake, try our Keepsakes!

Keepsakes protect a lifetime of memories.  Gifts that last the long haul hold great sentimental value and can help turn any household into a home.  Enrich your family and friends with a gift that shows them how much you care.  Don’t look for a one time only gift, search for that special item in our collection of Keepsakes!


Start a gift giving tradition from birth!  When they get older, your children will want to look back and put together clues of their infant experience.  The Day You Were Born Newspaper is a great reminder of a date of birth.  This personalized gift makes it easier to reminisce on your baby’s birth date and remember what was going on in the world at the time.  Handprint Gifts provide great relics from a child’s past.  A Pop Art Canvas Baby Handprint Set comes in blue and pink.  These sets can be customized with a baby’s handprint and used to decorate rooms.  A Photo and Footprint Baby Book shows your infant’s prints and contains journal pages to document every step of growth.  Try a keepsake that will last from childhood to adulthood!


Collectibles  increase in value as time goes on.  We have a selection of Old Magazines for the old timers or people interested in past publications such as Life Magazine, Time Magazine, Newsweek Magazine and more.  Movie memorabilia is perfect for the movie buffs.  Photographs and collectibles of classic and contemporary movie stars are available and waiting to be framed.  To store these keepsakes, check out our Baby Time Capsule or Weeding Time Capsule.  Both are used to collect milestones and build up tangible memories during life’s journey.

There comes a time when one sit-up turns into mission impossible.  At some point in your life the hair on your chest will be fuller than the hair on your head.  For you, that might not have come yet, but you definitely know someone that’s past their prime.  As a birthday gift or a gift just for the sake of giving, give Over the Hill Gift to that special someone who is standing off with old age!
