The pink gift box with woven top is one of my favorites. I've forgotten what the gift was inside (candles perhaps), but I know who it was from and think of her whenever I see this box (every day). Next to it is a wooden puzzle box from North Carolina that my husband gave me for Christmas one year.
A gathering of little red gift boxes, all of them empty now except for the back center cloth-covered Japanese one, which has a perfume bottle inside. That one is also the largest at 3 in. x 2 in.; the smallest is about 1-1/2 inches square.
The above box was a gift from a Korean student. It is wood with fabric on the front of the small drawers, stands almost 6 inches high and is 4 inches wide. I use it to hold earrings--simple ones, no diamonds, alas. It really needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.
Above are two empty boxes. The top is cloth-covered and came with a necklace inside, and below that is a Florentine box, from Italy--in this case, the box was the gift. I used to keep letters in it.
Above are two Swiss music boxes, gifts from my husband when we lived in Switzerland (the front one from 1982 and the back one from 2007.) They are small, about 6 in. x 4 in. and hold a few novelty trinkets. The green one plays "Nach em Rage schint Sunne"; the black one plays Rapsodie Sur Un Theme De Paganini.
This last box is perhaps my favorite of all, another gift from my husband, from Windsor, England, around 1984. He found it at one of our favorite shops: one devoted almost entirely to old boxes. It is 8 in. x 12 in. and holds photographs.
There are more boxes scattered throughout our house; I'll round them up some day soon.
