    I did something for my DH that is really sentimental and sweet, but really small and portable. He keeps it with him always. But I payed almost $100 for it.

    *note: because I tried to buy the best I could. You wouldn't HAVE to spend $100 for it if you picked a different style*

    ok so here is what I did.....

    go to http://www.stickyj.com/

    Go to "pendants". Basically, I bought a black stainless "dog tag" that I got engraved. They give you the option of engraving on both the front and the back of the dog tag. I engraved as much as I could. Two of our favorite sayings and our anniversay. I like the black ones because the engraving shows up silver and they do a REALLY nice job with it. They have a nice variety of pendants to choose from, a variety of texts to use for the engraving, and it just looks really professional and awesome. I really loved what it looked like when I got it. They also have a HUGE selection of symbols you can get engraved

    The reason mine was almost $100 is because I bought a really nice black tag, engraved as much as I could, and I also bought a chain to go with it. Now, you don't need the chain because he can take the engraved dog tag and put it on the chain with his other dog tags.

    But I thought this was a wonderful gift for my DH (then DB) because he can always carry it with him. He always has to have his dog tags on him anyways. It's light weight and easy to transport. So what better way for him to remember me and know that i love him then being able to look down or hold the present I got him any time he wants to. And it's also close to his heart, at all times. Plus, for deployment, it's something to remember me by that's not something big and bulky to pack that's hard to carry ya know?

    So that was the very small, very personal and sentimental gift I got DH last christmas. He LOVES it and he keeps it on him at all times.
