    We are planning on putting a box together of things for the LO - anybody got any other suggestions?

    1. Newspaper from the day they were born
    2. No.1 single from the day they were born
    3. Family photo from that day
    4. A new £5 coin

    Am sure there were more but I can't remember!

    These were the ones I would go for. Maybe a print of babys hand foot to go in, a reciept for a baby outfit, that would have the date on and would be interesting to see how prices differ when baby is older.

    The hospital will give you a duplicate tag if you ask, my sis and her dp are not married and as when ure in the hosp the baby has to take the mums surname for security purposes they gave her a tag and baby card with his surname on too as a keepsake

    Wow, lots of good ideas chickadees! Will add them to my list ;-)

    We have been having a chuckle here at the high probability that the No.1 when they are born will be the X-Factor Winner!! MWAHHHHH !!!

    I know that if it were me i'd love to get a box on my 13th/16th/18th/21st or whenever with lots of baby souviners in it xx
     
  11. Great ideas! As for the X factor thing... it wont exist in 18 years time so it'll be interesting to them that such a thing was going on and that we all watched/loved it while they were safely tucked away from the horrors of reality TV. Haha.

    What lovely ideas. I'm definitely going to put one if these together. I'll have a think and see if I can come up with something different.

    Ooooo actually what about a celeb mag....so they can see how the celebs have aged over the years! X x

    A year or so ago my mother in law gave me a box of all my husbands stuff including, his first socks, newspaper from the day he was born, wrist band, old school books, old reports from school and loads of other stuff from over the years I loved It I spent hours looking through it, it was strange especially the tiny stuff, he is a big fella. And the stuff he used to write at school was so funny. I am definately going to do this for my kids although I will give it to them not their wife/husband.

    That is a brilliant idea, I'm going to do one of those myself now.
    I'm a stickler for sentimental things and it would be lovely to make my baby girl a box for when she's older with all her baby things in.
    Thanks so much!!
