A new keychain always comes in handy, especially when received from a loved one.  You can go for a metal engraved one like these on etsy, or get a custom printed acrylic one. If you get an acrylic one, you can immortalize one of the most precious pictures of Daddy-daughter/son duo enjoying each other's company, baby pictures and also a special design with an inside joke. Apart from being highly attractive,keychains are also durable and you can choose different art for each side. Since those come in small 25 bundles they make great giveaways for companies and small businesses.
