While most fathers would go out and buy their daughters a new phone, or some clothes they sought after for a graduation present. Other fathers make custom gaming related presents mixed with life-lessons.

The above image comes from Reddit user Tg8402, who custom made the Zelda themed present for his daughter to celebrate her graduation. Tg8402 even gave a little bit of backstory on the project after it picked up major traction in the /r/Zelda subreddit. "I introduced her to Zelda when she was 6 and she fell in love. Spent hours upon hours on Breath of the Wild which was the first game we got to experience together. I always told her that she was just like Link and just because you can't do something now doesn't mean you never can, you just weren't ready yet."

The meaning behind the gift continued; "But as time goes by you'll collect more hearts and more items along the way to help you face your obstacles. And one day you'll find your master sword and be ready to face your Ganon. I'm giving this to her for her graduation in a couple months. It's white gold and there's a little diamond in the middle. I hope she likes it." What an incredible gift combined with an even better life-lesson to bestow on the daughter that already loves Zelda and Link. The reddit user also details how he went about making the pendant, so if you are interested in replicating it for personal or gift use, check out this link here for a description on how it was done.

Jaks love for technology and more specifically PC gaming began at 10 years old, it was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on a old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of the typical FPS PC gamer, Jak enjoys the likes of a solid MMO, RPG, or a single-player linear story. More importantly, though, he holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
