The witnesses memory box
In addition, there are nice boxes with explicit engravings to make your request. You can slide inside the box some souvenirs with the person who will be your witness. Whether it’s pictures, little words or stuffed animals, fill this box with sweet memories. You can also offer gifts to your future witnesses such as personalized bathrobes, badges or mugs. And why not add a packet of tissues for the beautiful emotions that await your witness.
