You can further the customization by adding your names and a sweet message.
3. For the celeb-obsessed: Cameo Video Message

Just imagine how delighted your loved one will be if Carol Baskin tells them how your love is bigger than her love of tigers. It's like a new age cupid. We recently tried out the service and loved how easy it was to navigate the site and get your video message, but found that it's easier to search a category (like say "The Bachelor") than for a specific celebrity. Fees vary by person and can go up to $2,500, but the excitement on your giftee’s face will be priceless.
