If you are looking for a really special gift to give a Bar or Bat Mitzvah boy or girl, you need look no further! Check out this incredible memory box, made by Lexington Studios. It is a wooden painted box, designed to hold all the special memories of the day, including things such as the program, d'var torah speech, invitation, kippah, and other little tokens. My favorite part of this box is that the top can be customized with your own invitation! I scanned in the invitation, emailed to Lexington Studios, and got a proof later the same day! When the box arrived, it looked even better than I had imagined--gorgeous quality. The invitation looks incredible on there--it looks like it was handpainted and part of the original artwork. Inside the box, there is a painting of a card that says "Mazel Tov on becoming a Bar Mitzvah". The family loved this special gift, and have already filled it with many items that will be treasured for years to come.
Here are some of their other box designs--I'm definitely ordering one for my own daughter once I get her invitation finished!
