Unconventional Wedding Gift

So, I have been racking my brain trying to come up with something "unique" to give Frank for a wedding gift. I know it is really far away still, almost a year, but I want it to be perfect! I will probably do the traditional cuff link thing, but I think I will also do this:

It may look like just a piece of modern artwork, but it is MUCH more than that! It is a portrait of two different people's DNA. There is this really great site called DNA 11, that makes different types of "personalized" artwork. You can choose from 25 different colors, and can have one, two, three, even four people per frame! After placing your order online, they send out a kit that gives easy to follow directions. After swabbing your mouth, you mail in your samples and receive this truly unique and personalized piece of art. I know its a very "different" gift, but I just like it.

If you're not so into displaying your genetic make-up, they do have a couple of other types of artwork:


Fingerprints

Lip Prints

Now I just have to figure out how to swab Frank's mouth without him catching on...
