Turning a document into a "keepsake."

I would like to give a document as a gift to a family member. A sort of pledge that I am writing. But I don't want to just print out some Microsoft Word and stick it in an envelope -- I want to create a gift document that can be kept if desired for years. Would I hire a calligrapher? Or use a computer program? What kind of paper and ink or other treatment? Should I use Etsy? And -- how to present? I was thinking maybe a scroll (in a box?) but maybe that's cheesy. It's personal so framing is not appropriate. Suggestions welcome. Know that I have bad handwriting and am not artistic.
