    I have a lot of little nicknacks, jewelry, etc that I want to give to a few different people. It's a lot and hard to identify/describe each piece on paper.

    Can I just put everything I want for each person in a different box, label it with their name, and identify that box in my will to go to them?

    Yes, you possess the ability to do what you posited.

    Or, you can consider doing what I did 15 years ago.

    I no longer have a need for much of the stuff I've accumulated over the last decades.

    I began giving away the things I wanted various people to have.

    One by one I gave them their gifts.

    By doing it myself, I didn't need to worry if it would be done correctly upon my demise.

    I wish you health and long life as you determine what is best for you and yours.

    Are you talking about after you die?

    If so, yes, you can say in your will that you have marked boxes of stuff and have labeled the boxes with Huey, Dewey and Louie's names and that you want each of them to have the box marked with his name.
