Small, Creative Keepsake Gift Ideas

By September 23, 2021 No Comments

It is easy to think of a gift as being this big blowout gesture that has to cost a lot of money, but that is not the truth at all. In fact, it is often the little things that make people feel loved and thought of, especially when they seemingly pop up out of the blue.
You do not need a stream of disposable income to let people know you are thinking of them, and when it is so often the little things that make your day, why not begin there? As we enter into the last quarter of the year and the holiday season approaches, here are some small keepsake gift ideas that you can give to someone who needs it!

A Small Pocket Hug

A sweet little painted rock could be all you need to offer to put a smile on someone’s face. The idea of using a small smooth rock is that it is something easily carried around on our person wherever we go, which means it is always there for when we need it. 

If you feel like you want to put your own personal flair on it, then why not decorate and paint a rock yourself for the recipient of your choice? You can design whatever you like, so they have something that reminds them you are always with them for a pocket hug.

Rosary Beads

Rosary beads are stunning pieces of jewelry keepsakes said to bring protection and luck that can be a lovely gift for many people, even those who are not particularly religious. They can offer a comforting reminder that someone is always looking out for the recipient and also provide a few moments of self-guided mindfulness and rest for those who are on the go or are going through particularly hard times. If this sounds like the ideal small gift for your special someone, then head over to to find the perfect choice. 

Memory Box Gift

The gift of memories is something only each person can give uniquely and individually, as no two memories or experiences will ever be exactly the same. The idea behind giving a memory box to someone could be to remind them of all of the good times they have shared with you or even feats they have accomplished. It can often be a surprise for people to see how others view them or have experienced time with them, and (as long as they are nice) can be a wonderful keepsake for years to come that will be easy to dip in and out of whenever they need a pick me up. 

A Journal

Almost everyone can benefit from writing their thoughts, feelings, and emotions down. It is a particularly useful tool for those who suffer from anxiety, depression, and stress. Instead of these issues going around and around in our minds, dumping them all out in a journal can help your mind feel more clear and manageable. If you know someone who is struggling right now, a journal could offer a safe space to them where they can express themselves however they see fit.
