One happy reviewer said:

I thought the best way to support my 5 stars would be with my Dad’s reaction. We got this keychain for him with a picture of him and his grandmother when he was younger on the inside. He truly never cries, and this touched him so much. He carried it around all day. This gift was priceless.

4. Personalised Leather Handwriting Keyring

Personalised Leather Handwriting Keyring - Create Gift Love

The Personalised Leather Handwriting Keyring is a real tearjerker and makes a touching gift for anyone special, and that includes your Dad. Our handmade leather keyring looks subtle from the outside, stamped with traditional debossed lettering, and pops open to reveal a handwritten message printed inside the leather, in an actual copy of your handwriting. All we need is a short handwritten message from you and we then print this directly onto the leather, making a super personal, touching keepsake gift. You could handwrite a message to give your dad, use it as a keepsake of your toddler or child's handwriting (perfect for a Dad with young children) or for a truly heartfelt keepsake the keyring can be used to remember someone special, giving Dad the priceless gift of a memory of someone much missed.

One review said:

I cannot speak more highly about this item. Bought for myself and my sisters for our first Mother’s Day without our mum, with her writing inside. Fantastic friendly communication from the seller, my items (I bought 3) were finished and posted within 24 hours. Beautifully wrapped, myself and my sister treasure them. Thank you.
