My husband is not a jewelry wearer and he’s not a lover of framed quotes. I’ve looked for something meaningful to get for him for years. I wanted to find something he can carry with him every day that is a reminder of Hadley. Something more subtle than a necklace with her name on it but less painful than a tattoo across his back (he’s also not really a tattoo guy).
We have a photo he took of the kids last summer where they are all hugging and rays from the sun are streaming down over their heads. Neither of us can look at the picture with out feeling a little whisper of her hello.
Recently I discovered Jewelry Keepsakes. They create beautiful cremation jewelry like the necklace I wear that carries a bit of Hadley’s ashes as well as gorgeous photo jewelry. I found the perfect solution to my search for a gift for Mark. They create custom keychains with a photo engraved and also a personalized message on the back.
I sent them the photo I know he loves most and a message for the back and was completely amazed at how perfectly the photo was transferred. My plans to hang onto it for a Father’s Day gift quickly changed to maybe hanging onto it until Easter and then dissolved into a St. Patrick’s Day weekend gift because I couldn’t wait any longer. We’re Irish so that works right?
He absolutely loves it and I’m thrilled to have found the something for him that I’ve always been looking for.
Jewelry Keepsakes has offered to give away a personalized keychain to one Four Plus An Angel reader. They will engrave it with the photo of your choice and also include a personalized message on the back.

What a beautiful gift! I love the idea of a picture keychain for dads <3
Oh my gosh! I love this idea! I always struggle with finding something meaningful to give to my husband as a gift. He’s not a gift guy at all–but I think this would actually speak to him.

We lost my niece in October of ’09 and we remember her and “see” her all the time by way of rainbows and ladybugs. My sister gave my husband, who is a fighter pilot in the USAF, a little glass ladybug that he carries in his flight suit on every flight. He also carries the Saint Christopher medal that I gave him engraved with my initials and those if our children and our dog!! It’s little things like these that men like, stuff you can’t see but that they hold close to their hearts.
My husband was in the Air Force as well. Love that your husband carries those symbols with him.
What a wonderful and beautiful gift. I hope I win
I absolutely love it. I hope the photo captures how good it came out. I can’t believe how well they were able to transfer the photo.
