Custom Playing cards

My 9th grade DD is trying to get a gift together for her boyfriend. He loves to play cards.. carries a deck with him everywhere and they often play together. (Not betting games.. just spit, spoons, etc.)

We don't want anything too mushy, and she really doesn't want to put their pic on it, but we're stuck for ideas.

Anyone here have one?

Are you asking what kind of picture or where to get it done?
If you are asking where to get it done, I would suggest shutterfly.com

If you are asking about what kind of picture, I guess one of both of them smiling together.

Merry Christmas!

Does he have a beloved pet? Favorite band? A car he dreams to get when he's able to drive?

Take a pic of the two of them playing cards together. That's not mushy.

Monogrammed cards? http://www.tiffany.com/Shopping/Item...cards&search=1

Don't know if you can get them imprinted in time, but you could buy the blank cards & monogram afterwards?

How about a picture of a favorite place of his, or of theirs?

Thanks everybody..

this "boyfriend" stuff is hard. Girls are so much easier to buy for. (I can't wait to see what he comes up with.)

We were trying to come up with some kind of cute phrase, but nothing was working.

We ended up getting a set from Zazzle. Not sure if they'll come for Christmas or not, but they probably won't exhange gifts 'till afterward anyway.

We found a cute pattern that had all the suits on it. She just put "N's cards", 2012, and "I lost the game!" w/her initials inside the design.

Not sure if anyone here knows what "the game" is.. you can google it. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me but all her friends "play". So that seemed to fit.

Next we have to go to Target to get him a card.. I wonder how long that will take? They have been a "couple" for almost a year (and friends since 2nd grade) but at this point it is still all very innocent and awkward.
