The one-size-fits-all gift every dad, granddad (or grad) appreciates!

You know those celebrity biographies that make you go "Aww" when you see how cute so-and-so was as a kid? And you know how your dad/grandpa/uncle are always asking for more pictures of you and your own family? At Daily Grommet, we've found a way to create your own photo videos where you're the stars.

Animoto.com is a cool website that lets you create your own photo videos set to the music of your choosing. Imagine pictures of the kids set to mom's greatest hits, or pictures of the family over the years with everyone's sing-along favorites playing in the background.

Just upload your photos and music, insert text, and arrange it all the way you know Dad would like it. (This part is so fun, your kids will beg to help!) In a matter of minutes you can have something that looks TV-worthy.

Founders Brad Jefferson and Jason Hsiao have produced shows for MTV and ABC, and knew that with the right technology, even absolute beginners could create a professional-looking photo montage. You can always make 30 second videos for free on Animoto's website, but from now through June 20, 2009, with code "grommet," you can make a 3 minute video for free too.

Thanks to Animoto, whoever you decide to surprise with their own custom video slideshow will be impressed -- and you'll have something adorable to share with your Facebook friends. Phew.
