Sure, you could store your keepsakes in a regular old box, or they could be guarded by a ferocious monster. If given a choice, we’d go with the latter. Boxnmor’s playful handmade wood box has beady little eyes and pointy maple wood teeth to ward off would-be thieves.
THE BEST Boxes
Hide small items in plain sight with this fake book storage box. Designed to look like the parts manual from an old piece of industrial equipment, it’ll look great sitting alongside other mechanics’ books. It measures 7″ x 5.5″ x 1.8″ and is made from canvas, wrapped around MDF plywood, with a velvet-lined interior.
Living Packets designed this collapsible box which can be reused up to 1000 times. A holding mechanism reduces the need for padding materials, and it has a digital lock, mobile tracking, and various sensors. Shipping labels are shown on an E-ink display, and the boxes can be reused by their recipient or dropped off for reuse.
Keep your pocket tools, watches, and other EDC gear organized with this lockable display valet from Drop. It holds up to 7 knives, 3 watches, a wallet, and 2 full-size pens or 4 small flashlights, and has a USB pass-through for charging. An optional storage drawer ($50) stacks beneath the main section for added capacity.
This laser-cut wood kit forms a locking puzzle box. Along the way, you’ll use its 123 pieces to assemble a combination lock that can be set to a three-digit password, along with a rotating geometric pattern to play with on its top, and a key mechanism to unlock whatever goodies you hid inside its 1.2″ storage compartment.
Have you ever gotten a box from Amazon that’s way too big for the item packed inside? The CMC Cartonwrap 1000 solves this problem by scanning the item to be packed inside, then making a custom-sized box for it. It’s not ideal for fragile items, though it looks like they’re working on that.
Inspired by Japanese lunchboxes, theses stackable storage boxes are perfect for bringing order to the chaos of chargers, cables, watch straps, earbuds, and other everyday items. They’re especially designed for Apple products, but work with other small accessories.
