Here at Love Keep Create we specialise in making bespoke, handcrafted keepsakes from your beloved old clothes. They could be baby grows your child has outgrown, Granny's favourite dressing gown, Dad's favourite old shirt, your uniform from work, sports kits - all of them can be turned into our beautiful keepsake memory bears, animals, blankets, quilts, animals and much more.  

This year the standard Christmas deadline for all of our keepsakes is the 5th of November and the Express Deadline is the 26th of November. We need to receive your order and your clothes to guarantee your keepsake for Christmas. In this blog post, we take you through some of our favourite keepsakes that will make the perfect heartfelt gift this Christmas for your loved ones. 

Christmas Keepsake Star

A lovely way of treasuring a favourite item of clothing, our gorgeous Keepsake Stars are a beautiful Christmas gift. Each star keepsake will have a ribbon attached in the middle so it can be hung up as a decoration around the home, or even on a Christmas tree.

Our stars can be given as gifts from children to their parents and might be made out of a favourite baby grow. Or they could be given to a child, using a special memory from when they were young. Or maybe you want to remember a relative or friend who is no longer with us and make it out of an item of clothing they always used to wear.

Keepsake Christmas Sack

Our keepsake Christmas sacks are a fantastic way to treasure all kinds of precious items. They measure approximately 40 x 55cm and are fully lined with cotton lining and a red ribbon drawstring at the top.  We can embroider a name onto a cream fleece patch that is positioned in the middle of the Christmas sack to show Santa exactly where to put the right presents. The embroidery read "[name]'s Christmas Sack".

Keepsake Cushions

Our beautiful keepsake cushions are a wonderful way to get the most precious of your little one's old baby clothes on display. Match them with one of our quilts or blankets or use them on their own as a fabulous addition to any bed or settee. The border and back of the cushions are made with snuggly fleece - we usually use pale blue and cream.

Penguin Christmas Keepsake

This adorable penguin keepsake can be created from your most cherished items of clothing that you can’t bear to part with. Featuring cute feet and wings, this memory keepsake penguin is guaranteed to be treasured for years to come.

Made from the clothes that your little one has grown out of, as well as other precious items that you want to keep and treasure, this penguin is sure to become one of your most beloved possessions. This keepsake is a truly special way to reuse garments and upcycle preloved clothes. 

Christmas Reindeer

This loveable keepsake Christmas Reindeer is a must-have for any parent. The perfect reminder of a baby’s first Christmas, with an adorable red nose and classic antlers this reindeer would also make the perfect gift to celebrate the birth of a December baby.

Polar Bear With Keepsake Christmas Jumper

Our adorable polar bear is the perfect gift or keepsake at Christmas. Incredibly fluffy and beautifully stuffed, we can make a cosy Christmas jumper out of any clothing you send us - whether it's a favourite baby grow, treasured jumper, or another special item.

In the back of the bear is a small pocket that can be used for a variety of purposes. If you've bought the bear to remember a loved one, a small amount of their ashes can be kept in a little box there, so they're always close by. Or maybe you want to store another keepsake, such as a lock of hair or a first tooth?

Keepsake Christmas Stocking

There's bound to be some scrummy Christmas outfits your little one wore last Christmas, what better way to put them to use! Our keepsake clothing stockings are a fantastic way to treasure all kinds of precious items. Use the cute little Santa outfit your little one wore last year, a favourite but worn old Christmas jumper or even just some particularly festive material you're really fond of.  

Christmas Elf

Our super cheeky Christmas Elves are a must-have for any parent. Made from the most cherished of your little one's old clothes and with up to 45 characters of personalisation embroidery, our distinctive elves are a great way to remember your child's first Christmas. 

Christmas Chick

Our stunning Christmas Chicks are the perfect way to commemorate that special Christmas with your little one. Based on our large chick pattern they can either sit on a fireplace or be slotted in to sit on the Christmas tree. We have a number of different fabric options and you can add personalisation of up to 25 characters. These chicks are a beautiful keepsake that can be cherished forever.
