What is a Life Chest?

The Life Chest™ is the modern hope chest – an heirloom quality keepsake chest to hold life’s most precious memories.

The Life Chest™ accompanies families and individuals through every phase of their life; from a major milestone to the most intimate memories.

Why do I need a Life Chest?

In this digital age, when are moving so quickly, it is important to preserve those keepsakes – not only for our own enjoyment but to leave a legacy for future generations.
