Romantic keepsakes are fine and dandy but most of 'em are either too slushy or too deadpan for words: cute, message-bearing bunny wunnies, heart-shaped 'I Love You' necklaces - bleurgh!
Love is the key
So how do you make a romantic gesture and show your commitment without looking like a lovesick puppy? That's right, you inject a bit of humour into proceedings. But that doesn't mean you should present your significant other with your toenail clipping collection; it means you should buy these charming Ball and Chain Keyrings.
Crafted in gleaming stainless steel, each robust keychain features a weighty ball with a neat little handcuff attachment. Sold as a matching pair, one ball is inscribed with 'HIS' the other with 'HER'. Aww, innit cute!
Ever-so-slightly ironic, these nifty little tokens of love serve as handy reminders that you're well and truly attached. Not that you should be forgetting something like that in the first place. They're also great for showing loved ones how serious you are without resorting to engagement rings or similarly pricey baubles. And even if you are married, you can still enjoy the old ball and chain in-joke with your other half.
As well as all the romantic connotations, Ball and Chain Keyrings are incredibly practical because the handcuff clip snaps open and closes at the click of a switch, so getting keys on and off is a doddle. Better still you'll be reminded of your romantic status every time you reach for your keys. Which is a good thing. Isn't it?
If there's a more appropriate tongue-in-cheek pressie for that special someone in your life, we've yet to see it. And unlike other gifts you get to keep half of it yourself. So hurry up and get ordering. Like the song (almost) says: if you love someone set them free; if you really love someone tie them down with a Ball & Chain Keyring.
