Our 'Story So Far' token tins are the ultimate keepsake. Each token represents a special moment in you or your loved ones life.

This could be a beautiful gift to record a relationship, a child's first year or someone's personal achievements.

Purchase a set of three or six aluminium tokens to store in either our silver or rose gold tin heart box. Then, if you wish, you can later add to the collection over the years token by token. Each tin will hold a maximum 20 tokens, so they are perfect for adding to over the years on special occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays, valentines etc.

Our suggested themes are as follows:

Our Love Story: where you met/ your first date / pet names /when you said I love you / first trip away / when you got engaged / when you got married / your honeymoon

Our Life Together:
first date / first home / engagement / marriage or civilled / children (names,weights,dates)

Your First Year: name / weight dob / first tooth / first steps /first word

Or you can suggest your own individual theme.

The wording is totally up to you so you can be as specific or cryptic as you like (for example you can use initials and for locations we can use mapcodes, These Three Words, Google Plus Codes and coordinates). Of course the wording on the lid of the box is also completely customisable too.

Please supply your words for the lid of the tin and your tokens in the 'add your personalisation box' or on a note at checkout. Note that we can only include up to 26 characters per token including spaces. All wording is stamped in typewriter font as you can see in the examples shown. Please note tokens with your own words on are a custom item and cannot be returned or exchanged please see our FAQ and terms and conditions for more information.

Our tokens are not a toy. They should only be given to children over three and under strict supervision as they may be a choking risk.

Before you purchase our beautiful hand stamped tokens you may want to know a little more about them.

Each token is made from lightweight aluminum which has been sourced and purchased by Dormouse and The Teapot from a UK small business. Aluminum shines up beautfully and looks very similar to silver, it does not tarnish and is lead and nickel free.

Each letter of your chosen phrase is stamped individually by hand then finished using traditional tools and methods in our little workshop situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors. It is then carefully cleaned and polished, before being wrapped up in our pretty tissue paper, tape and stickers.

Each piece is unique so the picture you see above is only a representative example of this piece. Due to the nature of stamping there may be variations in alignment and spacing of letters. As every item is genuinely old, there may be some light scratches and signs of wear, all part of the charm. Wash only by hand, and handle with love and care.

Each item is made to order so please allow the full time stated in shipping for dispatch. Thank you.
