Check out this link.

I'm actually giving one to each of my kids instead of my husband, but only because I am working on a different book to celebrate our upcoming ten year anniversary. There are lots of cute templates that you can use as is or customize them or you can design your own from scratch. Email me if you are interested at and you can check out my website to see more cool products.
