Storing Photos & Keepsakes: Review & Win with Baby B.

Although everything tends to be stored digitally these days, I am a great believer of the traditional photo album to mark and remember the special occasions in life. Given baby Finley's arrival, this was one such occasion that warranted one!

With impeccable timing, I was approached by a company called Busy B who are introducing their new baby range, aptly called Baby B. I was offered the opportunity to choose an item from this range to review on my blog so I ran off to take a peek HERE.

My immediate reaction was yay! There was a beautiful Photo Album and Keepsake Box in blue stating First Photo Album. The perfect item for me right now!




It retails at £19.99** which is probably a bit more than I would pay for a photo album myself but, OK, I would pay that if it was for a gift for someone else.
Funny how we do that isn't it? Shell out for others but not ourselves!!
**EDIT: Currently on special offer at £9.99^

The album arrived and I must admit that on first glance I thought it looked no different than one you could buy from a highstreet card shop, say Clintons or something. A glossy blue and white cardboard box with an album inside, wrapped in celophane.

However, when I opened it you could feel the difference in quality and this is where your money really shows in my opinion.



A sturdy, quality keepsake box with a matte finish. Not flimsy at all, I would trust this box to protect my album and/or hold precious dainty things like baby's first curl and hospital tag etc. extremely well.




The front cover of the album has a plastic window featuring the rabbit design from the keepsake box and the words "First Photo Album". You can insert your own photograph in here, but personally I love the design so much that I would leave it as is.



The 24 acid-free page photo album can hold up to 96 photo's of your cherub and are covered with high quality clear sheets to prevent damage to your photographed memories.

My Summary
This product makes for a lovely gift and the quality gives it it's worth. 
I would suggest just one thing though if buying as a gift for someone - remove the cellophane, pop the lid on the box and wrap the box in giftwrap or add ribbon and a bow. It's so much more impressive this way and when you open the box, you're further pleasantly surprised by the matching photo album. 
It's a big thumbs up from me!

I'll cherish this album and keepsake box, just as I continue to do with Carson's from when he was newborn. 

DISCLAIMER: I was sent this item free of charge. All opinions are my own, open and honest - as always.
